A hotel with good location and wonderful view, you can go to duty free shop from lobby directly, and enjoy the huge club lounge, the amenities were perfect,too. Ms.Jina Lee has provided great and kindly service, it makes this stay more happiness.

The room is nice. Underground is the shopping mall and quite near to the Subway. The staff is nice. Love the breakfast too. I like the free stuff in the room too. The soap, shampoo have pleasant smell not like other ordinary hotel with the same smell.

Top hotel, outstanding service, as more or less expected in Korea. One minor quibble: we could not avoid water leaking from the glass shower, and my wife has a bit of a fixation with that issue. We booked a room with lounge access and that turned out to be excellent value.

Clean hotel with good location and friendly concerige service. Right opposite to Bongeunsa temple and above a DFS so it does get pretty crowded with tourists at times. Hotel bar has a good band but not much of a view. Breakfast was a good mix of Asian and Western offerings. Room service of Korean desserts was slightly disappointing and mini... More

The hotel is situated in a excellent area of Seoul in the general Gangnam district with easy access by metro to the rest of downtown Seoul and central Seoul. It is attached to the Coex (convention center) and an excellent underground mall covering an entire block. One of the highlights of this venue is this mall as it has almost... More

From the moment of early check-in to the moment of late check-out, the InterContinental COEX was wonderful. Seoul is a great city, with excellent metro, but it's a very large city so the InterContinental COEX was a lovely, calm, welcoming haven. Particular thanks to Eva and the crew at the Club Lounge! As an IHG Ambassador, I was upgraded to... More

I had never been to Seoul before I now went and attended a conference held at the Coex. It´s always an advantage to stay in close proximity to a venue, but staying at the InterContinental Seoul would have beeen wonderful no matter what. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated.

The Intercontinental Coex is not to be confused with the Grand Intercontinental where I was supposed to attend a function although staying at the former.

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.
