I spent 5 nights at the Grand Inter-continental Parnas Hotel. Service offered is typical of Korean excellence. The hotel is ideal for business and was well adapted for our large conference given its adaptable facilities. It is located above one of the largest malls in Seoul which makes shopping easy. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The dining room closes... More

This hotel is definitely in the middle of things, so if you have a short stay like me, you do not even need to go out of the hotel.

I spent a week at the Grand InterContinental Parnas and absolutely loved it! When I arrived at the hotel I went over to the Ambassador desk where I was checked-in and received a room upgrade, Junior Suite to a Residence Suite.

I stayed at the Grand Intercontinental Seoul Parnas for a night while visiting Coex Mall and Bongeunsa Temple. I love its location - so close to the temple and right there in Coex.

A location that is right above a huge mall and walking distance to the City Airport Terminal, is worth it. However, this is an old property and it shows. First, the rooms have old wooden furniture. Sounds great till you bump into the bed and experience excruciating pain. The spot above the luggage rack has no lights. So you will.... More

Always a pleasure staying at the one of the Intercontinental(s) in Seoul. My first time at the Parnas and experienced amazing service, beautiful rooms and top food.

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.
