One night in Seoul at the Intercontinental COEX. There is a KAL limousine Bus direct from Incheon to the hotel. The City Air Terminal is 10 minutes walk and that has direct bus service to Incheon or Gimpo. Fast and efficient check in, my Platinum status did not give access to the club lounge which was disappointing. Room was spacious...

Stayed here for 5 days for an international convention. As a business hotel, it doesn't disappoint with hotel staff more than willing to help. The concierge was especially good in helping us out in moving around the city. Convention facilities were outstanding. An added bonus was the huge COEX Mall just at the basement of the hotel. Lots of restaurants...

Perfectly situated for the business traveler. The hotel is well run, has good food and is connected to a great mall with just about every possible store you can imagine. Seoul is a very big city and so having convenience is critical.

Had 3 nights at this hotel. Plenty of staff on hand to meet and greet on arrival. Check in was fast and simple. We were on the 15th floor with a great view of the city. Our room was very clean and made up each day. There is the most amazing shopping mall below the hotel linking up with the...

We will use it when we go back to Seoul and we recommend...

This is a review for my stay back in Nov. 2016. I stay at this hotel when I travel to Korea probably 5-6 times per year. Different from my last visits (which I had minor issues on checking in experiences), this time Taeyun ( I guess she is front desk manager) helped my check-in and provided extra efforts for my...

Had a two night stay in Seoul on my way to Busan and decided to check out both InterContinental hotels that are within walking distance of each other. This is a solid IC with a lounge but not as good as the other. Received an upgrade to one of the corner suites based on the Royal Ambassador status and club...

I stayed there for 3 nights and found the place very convenietly located. It is on top of a large underground shopping mall where you can shop, also you will find McDonald's or coffee shops, restaurants and food court open from 11.00 till 21:00 hours, the prices were very reasonable. The hotel itself was nice and clean and the maid...

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.
