I visited this hotel for some relaxation and time away from work ( I live in Seoul) and it has been nothing but perfect. I upgraded to club level which afforded me amazing breakfast and also free cocktails / a light dinner from 6-9. I spent my day at the pool and korean spa which was AWESOME! Highly reccomended :)

Stayed in the hotel for a week attending a conference. Enjoyed every moment of being there. The staff was very friendly and experienced. Club benefits with light buffet and drinks were a pleasant surprise. Huge comfortable room was very clean. It was a pleasure to have an access to fitness club and sauna.

I stayed at this hotel for a week for a work trip. The facilities are very clean and comfortable. It was close to my work, train station, cafe and restaurants. The prices for food at the hotel is quite expensive, so I would recommend eating out instead.

I got a warm welcome from the moment I arrive at the hotel. The staff are helpful and the hotel is very classic. It feel like old European style yet the service is very Korean. Most of the staff I meant able to speak English. The breakfast is located at level 2 which is a continental breakfast. Value for money.

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.
