Located one hour from the international airport and one hour from downtown Seoul made it difficult to manage the distances. The hotel staff are absolutely professional and are a stand out. I was particularly impressed with the gentleman who helped me change rooms when he agreed that the original room that I was appointed was a bit noisy. The king...

This is a beautiful and grand hotel that doesn't disappoint. I was here in April for over a week on a business trip. The service was spectacular! This was my first trip to Seoul and I couldn't have felt more welcomed in this city and more at home during my stay at this hotel. Pros: great location, steps away from...

I was greeted at arrivals, within 3 seconds of coming through the customs doors, by a very well dressed man who knew my name, I was blown away. He was the guest co-ordinator for this amazing hotel. When I asked how he knew who I was, he said he'd googled me. That is the level of attention this hotel pays...

I have tried the JW Marriott and Ritz several times. The Intercontinental has a diverse breakfast, decent rooms, and a great location. The JW has a better fitness center but much worse location. The Ritz is fancier with a good location but a mediocre breakfast and fitness center. 5 stars is a bit generous. More of a 4.5.

The staff really does a great job, second to none. The rooms are spacious and wonderful. I recommend the Intercontinental Club floor. The subway is close if you want to adventure out into the city without dealing with the traffic. Attached to a mall and many restaurants in the area. You will like this property.

I enjoyed my stay at Intercon Parnas, the hotel is located in an upmarket part of Seoul, there are many many restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. Rooms are well equipped and spacious, did not get to try the breakfast though as I over slept that.

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.
