Spent 4 nights in November 17th-21 at this hotel. Hotel was very clean. Staff was the best. They always greeted you with smile and provided great information about the hotel and the area. Would not hesitate to stay here again

I dropped by for a late night dinner and could not have been more disappointed. Although I would like to be able to blame it on the construction going on in the lobby, that really should not have impacted the quality of the food. I ordered the chicken curry at the waiter's suggestion. It arrived at the table lukewarm and...

This hotel is very conveniently located within the COEX. It also has a Duty free shop when we were there, not sure if they closed or relocated already now. After a day's work attending expos, its a respite to shop around the area. Affordable restaurants also within the mall.

We stayed in room 1573 for 6 nights (check-in 24 Dec out 30 Dec). The hotel, the room, and the services are great for business people visiting Gangnam District of Seoul, or attending Trade Exhibition at COEX. It's a standard Intercontinental Hotel, not more, not less. Location-wise, it's connected via basement walkway with Lotte Duty Free shop, COEX mall, Hyundai...

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.
