The location is great for many businesses, and is probably high on the list of reasons to stay here. There are many local shops and great Korean restaurants a brief walk away. This sounds lame, but it is a typical Korean 5-star hotel; everything is good, staff are outstanding; nothing else to say.

The hotel is conveniently attached to the Coex convention center. The hotel is on the older side, but is very well maintained.

Most everyone addresses you by name and remembers...

Staying in Samseongdong / COEX

Neighbourhood 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.
