Top hotel in the heart of city. Close to gangnam. Good choice of food, great service. Close to samseong station. Great during winter. You can take a metro gangnam & enjoy the Seoul nightlife. Nearby coex mall.
"Great location in Gangnam area"
Top hotel with excellent service. Spacious tastefully furnished room with minibar. Excellent view of the old section of town across the river. Top floor restaurant with excellent views in several directions and room for reception/conference. Tasty food. Swimming pool was divine--very warm. The concierge was very helpful on several days. Built next to the 600 store Coex mall. The only downside was that food prices were very high. $40 for breakfast but it did give a magnificent array of eastern and western choices.
"Business Trip Stay"
A little remote from where I needed to be (it took me about 30 minutes via car to get to my office), and confusing for someone visiting (they went to the adjacent Intercontinental), it was pretty standard fare for this hotel chain. Service was above average, room was standard, Rooftop dining offered spectacular views. Overall, middle of the road for the Intercontinental chain I've stayed in.
"Not worth location"
Location is great. Conveniently connected to COEX and its numerous restaurants, shops and Hyundai department store. Unfortunately, the hotel itself is outdated and in major need of renovation. We were greeted by a strange odor when we entered our room. Service is another issue. After staying in Four Seasons Seoul and experiencing wonderful service the week prior, the service at the Intercontinental was severely lacking. We had the do not disturb sign on while we were in the room to only be called several times a day to see if we wanted housekeeping. The phone calls weren't enough that a manager opened the door with her key to ask if we wanted housekeeping. Various staff throughout the hotel were also not very friendly or helpful. If the location is key, I would probably recommend trying the Grand Intercontinental which is also connected to COEX.
"Very pleasant stay!"
A sudden business trip to Seoul in busy holiday period left me little choice of available hotels in Gangnam area. Luckily, Coex Intercontinental had one room available. I am very, very pleased with my stay. Everything from location, to hotel's amenities and their pleasant staff made me feel so welcomed. Every hotel staff has been more than pleasant. From arrival by taxi, they have greeted me and took my luggage. Reception was very efficient, check in was breeze. Room was immaculate and spacious. TV had so many channels and many of them in English. Bed is firm and choice of pillows was superb. It is very quiet during night and sleep was really amazing. There was complimentary water replenished every day. Bathroom had lots of accessories and famous heated toilet seat :) Shower had hot water at all hours and water pressure is great. Top floor has a nice ( but pricey) bar in case you want to stay in. Shopping is very near, from lobby you can take escalator down which will connect you to so many COEX shopping places and Aquarium. Just on back side of hotel, there is entrance to Casino. I have also used hotel's safe facility, which I found very convenient. After locking your valuables, you will sign a paper and will be given a key to keep until you want to retrieve it.. Highlight of my stay would have to be the breakfast bar.. I have stayed in many hotels, but the food choice and staff efficiency to cater to 100's of people is simply amazing! After just two days, I have noticed that staff already knew what kind of coffee I like. Outstanding. Queue is sometimes present for omelette, but it's worth a wait. Chef will make eggs in any given way you imagine. There is no way to mention all the food choices, but it is so good that I can't wait to go back there! One tiny issue I have experienced - is the static electricity discharge on a daily bases when walking in corridors and calling the lift. Also when getting into room and touching door handle. Since I have worn different types of shoes, I am not sure as to why this was so prominent. Overall, I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel not only to business people, but also to couples and families. A true 5 star experience!
