I stayed at this hotel for one night. From check-in to check-out the service was flawless. I arrived at 10am, knowing that check-in was at 3pm. I only wanted to stow my baggage and do some last-minute sightseeing/shopping until I could check-in later. When I arrived at the front desk I was warmly greeted and told that a room would be available at noon. This was such a nice thing for me at that moment because I had been on such a hectic schedule, even though this trip was a leisure one. My bags were delivered to my room while I was out visiting Bonguensa Temple, across the street. I was able to return, collect my room key, relax a little and go out by 1pm. Every minute counts! My room had something of a view, you could see a sliver of the Han River and a section of downtown Seoul-it wasn't spectacular, but I didn't care. The room, itself, was great! I loved the decor, very calming and soothing-just what you want after a long or busy day. The bathroom was fantastic-huge, modern, big shower, nice tub. It made staying there that much more relaxing and comfortable. Speaking of comfort, the bed was excellent-no complaints there. I got a great night's sleep so that I was all prepared for my very long day ahead, traveling back to the other side of the world. I used room service for dinner. The food was delivered quickly and piping hot. The soup I ordered was very good and the main entree I would say was good and quite adequate. Yes, it was pricey-but I was so tired that the convenience was well worth it! The hotel is very nice, the service is excellent, the location is good. Taxis are readily available, but this seems to be the case everywhere I went in Seoul. There is lots of shopping available with the Coex Mall being right there. Mall shopping is not my thing, but you can get lost in this one without trying too hard. It is huge and I'm sure that you can find most things there, if this is a thing you enjoy. I had a lot more fun shopping in the local markets and streets. Besides, I like being out in the air and not in an enclosed mall where I'm not sure if it's day or night! The Grand Intercontinental Hotel is located very close to the Intercontinental Coex. Do not confuse the two hotels! The Grand was fantastic-I really enjoyed it! Would I stay there again? Yes, definitely-if I wanted to be in that part of Seoul, for sure!
