"Good choice south side of the river"
I usually stay in the centre of the city but we stayed here for work and it was a great hotel with great service. I did a lot of walking here but if you want to hit out some of the typical site seeing sites be prepared to take a cab or hop on the subway (both easy but will take some time, recommend the subway so you can avoid Seoul's terrible traffic). If you are on business and no time to really to check out the sites, there is a Buddhist temple about 10 minutes away called Bong Eun Sa which is really cool to visit first thing in the morning.
"Another great IHG Property"
From my initial correspondences with the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas through my stay, everything was professional and well done. Leah, the Guest Relations Officer, made my stay that much better. She is very efficient and friendly and a great example of their superstar staff. It was very easy to get there from the airport.
"Great hotel, quiet section of town"
Why would you put two Intercontinentil hotel in the same black' I don't know and either will your cab driver so be prepared to go to the wrong one on first go around. Seoul is a big sprawling city with many neighborhoods. This hotel Is located across the river from what is considered central Seoul, business area next to a huge mall. Hotel itself is very nice and comfortable. Beds, pillows are great. It might be a little dated but it's really nice. Concierge service was more than excellent. Helped us with train tickets and very knowledgable about the area. I would recommend and return as long as your okay with location in the " burbs".
This hotel was what we expected and more. We are Ambassador members for the Intercontinental and where possible always stay in one. We were not disappointed - room was fabulous, staff were great as was bar etc. Cannot recommend this hotel enough - well worth a stay!!!
"The best experience!"
We've spent here several wonderful days and it was a realy great vocation! First of all we had got a problem with reservation: something went wrong, maybe with the electronic sistem or else, but our prepaid reservation had been moved to other dates, So, we had to make another reservation and pay for it with the points, this time. According to the rules, if you pay by the points, you will not get any upgrade. BUT, when we've arrived and explaind this situation during the check-in precedure, they made everething to make our residence comfortable. Special thanks to Stella Kim, who was very helpful, able to manage our problems and provide nice vocations for us. The hotel itself is one of the best amoung full range of Intercontinental's brand. There is the most cozy and homely Club, where you can relax and have a drink any time you need it. The Club's staff is obliging, the starters and antipasti are delicious.Breakfast was also very nice. Our room was very comfortable, stylish and spacious. The location is very good both for bussiness trips and for tourists. And for those, who like to feel himselves as residents, near the hotel there is a big supermarket with a delicious gastronomy. Surely, we'll come here again.
