I am impress with the hotels individually themed room. Our tour group were assigned to different concept rooms and it was fun! But the comfort, functionality, room service cleaning bothered us. -The lay out of the bathroom/toilet are wrong. - Bathtub outside, lavatory in the side of your bed, shower room and toilet room in tiny space. Really very uncomfortable....

It's a good hotel if you're not planning to spend much time in your room. Some of the more minimalist designed rooms tend to feel a bit cold or "not cozy". The showers without curtains in my room made a mess of water. The light and T.V. control wasn’t as intuitive as they might think it is. And by all...

It is the worst hotel ever. I stayed the hotel with my husband, and we've got the 5floor' room. The size is small but it did not important; however, dirt had collected on a stool. So we did not put our stuff on the chair. Besides, Chinese tourists complained their hotel services and the room condition. It makes Robby look...

Let's start off, we came into the room "natures escape "or something relevent to nature. The room was quite dirty. By dirty I mean our room had what looked like pubic hair in the bathtub!! Secondly when we had our room cleaned by the housekeeper, some of us would expect it to be clean and restock in some items. But...

I have to agree that some earlier posters comments with lack of functionality are dead on spot. But should it have been only that, I'd have been happy. Sadly that was not the case. Negative: - Internet is so slow as it resembled 9600 bps modem era. Average throughput is less than 1 kbps and packet loss of 7%. And...

I appreciate DESIGNs and I usually pick small boutique hotels in order to appreciate the creativity on offer. However, Hotel The Designers Sameoung (HTDS) is one that has not gotten the "design" part right. Design not only means creative and original, it also means functional and handling with ease and comfort. The first room I checked in was a standard...

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...

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!

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.
