This is a beautiful Intercontinental property and conveniently located next to the Coex mall and across the street from Bongeunsa Temple. Great selection at the breakfast buffet, helpful staff and comfortable beds and all the amenities you would expect from Intercontinental. The hotel is on the KAL Limo bus route, so it was easy to get to from Incheon Airport... More

The service cannot get any better. 5th time staying here, and it feels like they know you so well. The rooms are good; the upgrades are better. Definitely makes a long business trip that much easier. The location is great, especially being so close to the temple.

Four nights' stay here. Rooms are very spacious and well laid out. The higher floors afford better views if you have time to enjoy it. Their happy hour buffet (till 9pm) with free flow of beer, wine and a selection of hot dishes is well worth it for a casual business dinner. Breakfast in the bistro is definitely not a... More

COEX Intercontinental is a phenomenal hotel! No disguising it, this is an upscale hotel, so if you are looking for discounts or savings, look elsewhere. ery Classy, nice room, great amenities...recommendation, get the Ambassadors Membership to the IHG Club, you wont regret it. Upgrades, and discounts galore!

Fantastic hotel, I had a great stay here. Well located with some nice sites nearby. Staff are very friendly and ultra professional. Breakfast buffet was pretty good. If I could name one small complaint – no chocolate (or anything sweet) in the minibar for the late night sweet tooth fix :P

Staying in Samseongdong / COEX

Neighborhood Profile
Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important business exhibitions and meetings are held. The enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a myriad of things to do and see, including a large aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or take a stroll nearby through the tranquil royal burial grounds of Seonjeongneung, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
