Has a lot of variety choices for breakfast. Even freshly squeezed juices have more selections like Kiwi juice and mango juice. Western style, oriental style, Korean style...salad, cold cut, waffles and pan cakes. You name it they have it. I'm a breakfast person. Highly recommended.

The Grand Intercontinental hotel is a gem. Located in the central Co-Ex e TH area it is close to the hustle and bustle of this modern city. Walking distance to shopping malls, food courts and excellent restaurants. Once inside the hotel it is another world of luxury. Rooms are fantastically appointed and the bars and restaurants will suit any discerning...

Not much to say about this typical business hotel. Rooms are average in size. Bathroom is ok with a tub and a separate shower. But no special luxury. Breakfast is great. Ut very expensive. Gym was pretty busy in the morning.

The Intercontinental Grand is my favorite hotel when I need to stay in the Gangnam-gu area of Seoul as it's an elegant property with good F&B options and a very convenient location next to the Hyundai Department Store, COEX as well as City Air Terminal. Samseong Station is right next to it and Limousine Buses to Gimpo as well as...

Elegant hotel, high level service, excellent food. The rooms are excellent, and the staff is very accommodating. There is a full mall connected to the hotel which is quite convenient, however, can be quite a maze to get through. I enjoy the visit every time I stay!

I came here with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Used IHG points without problem. I noted the anniversary in my reservation notes and I received some complimentary surprises in the room... a bottle of wine, some chocolates, and a pair of small porcelain ducks (a Korean symbol of marriage). Was a very nice touch. King bed was luxurious...

I travel a little bit, and usually always have something to complain about in an hotel. Could be big, could be small but I often have a thing or two to say. This time, I can't find anything! My room was quiet which is my #1 criteria. It wasn't too big but big enough not to feel cramped. Bathroom was...

Have stayed here a dozen times over the past 15 years. It is absolutely my favorite hotel anywhere. Immaculately clean, warm and professional staff who provide top level service and make you feel at home. The restaurants are amazing, as is the fitness club and business centre.

The hotel had a great location. There was a small convenience store open 24 hours at the ground floor and a 12 minute walk to restaurants that close at 3am, 5am or one that was even open 24 hours for a full meal.

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.
