Stayed at the Grand Continental Parnas during a business trip. Part of the event took place innthe hotel. The room was spacious, with two beds, a sofa and a desk to work on. Wifi is available and fast enough to work. There is a lot of wardrobe space, but the bathroom is a bit outdated. Breakfast and diner buffet was... More

I stayed here for 3 nights during a recent business trip. The hotel has everything you would expect from a high end business hotel. But most importantly I got one of the best concierge services from concierge Gina, that I have seen in years. Not that my request was particularly difficult but I enjoyed our conversation around visiting Korea and... More

Room smelt of smoke when we 1st checked in. They changed rooms for us after we complained. Otherwise, room is lovely. Very spacious. The toilet was really luxurious too. Location is also convenient with airport shuttle nearby. Down point of this hotel is that there is no free wifi provided. Staffs are all very pro active & helpful. This hotel... More

Well located in the business district. Spacious rooms, very clean. Pleasant and accommodating staff. Excellent breakfast with a wide selection. Great workout room and pool. You need to pay for in - room internet which is somewhat expensive and a real distractor for such a great hotel (the only reason I did not give it a 5)

A superb hotel. There are not many hotels which can maintain the level of excellence seen at the Grand Intercon. Highlights for me included seamless service by staff with immaculate appearance.

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.
