"Great personal service"
I have been quite long journey this time for more than two and half months. I used to stay at COEX occasionally when I stopped over Seoul few times during my journey, I was very much exhausted and tired from long journey but I could have very much relax and comfortable by their great service. Especially I'd like to thank Hanna & JinA /GRO for their personal care. Looking forward to staying there again soon!
"As good as in my memories from 12 years ago!"
Last time I was in Seoul that was 12 years ago and I must have had a real good experience since I can only recall my stay at the Intercontinental. I was not sure at first but had visual memories. After 12 years the hotel is in very good shape and all amenities very well maintained. The breakfast is better than most, would not say the best though. The buffet lunch is impressive. We tried the Asian Live and the italian restaurant too and had nice good food. Pricey, good flavors overall. Staff is caring and attentive. They were installing decorations, which made it even more beautiful. Good hotel, good location (mall, restaurants, subway at walking distance). Will stay there again, hopefully not in 12 years.
Love the hotel, The room, the Complimentary gifts in the room. they also provide in the Room, extra travelling kid and other necessary to purchase incase you didnt bring any (eg. underwear, socks). Fluffy Pillow (LOVE IT), Comfortable Bed (LOVE), Love the Toilet in the room too! Breakfast was ok, lack of HALAL foods hence we went for Bread and Pastry only. Would be better if they can also provide HALAL foods. Hotel is nearby Samseong station and Bogeonso (i hope i spell it right) station and connected to The Starfield Mall. Did some shopping there too. Suggestion: for the Guest Toilet at the lobby, please provide atleast Bidet for cleaning purposes.
"Meeting planers note"
My group didn't actually stay here but we did a two day meeting here. We stayed at the Grand InterContinental but held our meeting here due to the lack of a large enough conference room at the Grand. It's a nice property with a very efficient meeting staff. Our meeting was in a midsize conference room on the 30th floor and the space we used was quite nice. The catered lunch the first day was a bento box that was very good and delivered warm. The second day lunch was buffet at the Italian restaurant on the same floor and it was also nice. Much of the credit for a successful two days likely goes to our admin staff but the hotel staff deserves credit as well. We had breakout rooms that included suites a floor below and the Grands suites are a bit nicer as is the Club staff and service. A nice property, but the Grand is a block away and you can't beat the club staff there.
"Business stay at COEX"
Stay was excellent. My flight arrived early in the morning so I made the reservation to start the night before I arrived so that I could get to my room and prepare before going to the office. I emailed the hotel to notify them I would not be arriving until early the next morning to make sure they didn't cancel the reservation or mark me as a no-show, and they replied to the email to assure me my room would be ready on arrival. Staff were very helpful with directions and taxi assistance. I didn't have any problems with taxi drivers off the street finding the hotel either, just had to tell them COEX InterContinential. Lots of amenities in the bathroom. Complimentary kits for dental, shaving, sewing, other grooming accessories. Breakfast options were plentiful and good quality, with both western and eastern food options. No complaints about the WiFi connection. Room rates are on the high end of what I would normally plan to book but not unusual for an InterContinental property.
