Staying overnight for a business trip is always something that brings about a lot of delibiration - what do you really want from a place? A comfy bed? Internet? TV? Some home comforts? For me, a hotel must pass three checks - the comfy bed, connectivity and some means of me having the coffee/tea I would normally make for myself... More

I stayed here for a whole week (last week) and would have to say that the experience was positive. I had this wierd pagonia thing in my room and unsure of why it was there but the room was clean, staff friendly and I left my valuables in the room and was never worried. The first room I was in,...

Dirty room, pubes all over the place. Bathroon was the worst. Red lipstick stains all over. Reminded people at the reception. Nothing changed. No respect, never again. Nice webpages, quite far away from the reality!

A quirky hotel in a small street close to COEX and the Casino, Hotel the Designers is a reasonably priced option in a bustling part of Seoul. The staff are very helpful, and speak reasonable English - which for me was essential as my Korean was non-existent (but it did get better and the characters eventually made some sense). I... More

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.
