I stayed one night but enjoyed every minute - free wifi - great bar and shopping mall attached. Recommend to spend more time in that hotel. Great services and great food. Specious rooms and bathrooms. Ronen

I have stayed at the Grand Intercontinental for many times due to her winning location. With an expansion of the underground shopping mall, it comes to be an expensive hotel even for business travel, but some of the designs are old fashion, i.e. I hate their tiles in the toilet. However, it wins all from the location and classical branding....

I was fortunate enough to stay again in this hotel. The staff is outstanding from the welcoming concierge, Gina, to everybody that served me in the bar area. I enjoyed a relaxing work afternoon to the music of two players: flute and piano. Desert and dinner was enjoyable as well. After a whole week of business meetings this place is...

I visited this property earlier this week and once again had an outstanding visit. It's a beautiful property with nice architectural touches and very well appointed rooms. But the thing that stands out here is the staff. The staff bends over backwards to go out of their way to make your visit special. I've only visited 4-6 times but everyone...

Was in Seoul for couple of days and decided to check both InterContinental hotels that are basically in the same complex. Had a red eye flight from Kuala Lumpur and took the bus from Incheon to the hotel. The stop was right in the front of the hotel. Went to the club lounge to check in and my junior suite...

This hotel is unexcelled in comfort. There was nothing that could be added to make the stay more pleasurable. When we requested a humidifier, it was instantly provided. If the thick comforters for bed coverings could be converted into sheets and quilts, this would be preferable, to provide the guests with an option for sleep comfort. The breakfast buffet is...

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.
