Gangnam wedding

Staff is very good and the room was clean. Buffet was very good. Disappointmetts were charging fro WIFI in the room (other Seoul/Busan hotels include free) and not too much available shopping underground was closed due to renovations. Therefore not much to do shopping. But otherwise we enjoyed the hotel very much

excellent hotel and services

Overall, an excellent hotel with a friendly, attentive staff. Internet should be included in a hotel of this caliber. Oriented more to business travelers rather than sightseeing.

Great hotel but a bit far from central

Service was excellent, facilities were great, connected to a casino, duty-free mall, and aquarium! The only negative thing is distance to Myeongdong/city center... not bad when there's no traffic, but 8/10 it is a long ride getting across the bridge. If you don't mind the distance (taxis are cheap so it's not a problem if you have time on your hands), this is a great hotel! Highly recommended.

great hotel in seoul

came to visit some friends who lived in budang. did sightseeing, and enjoyed a drink or five. great area since the hotel is right above the COEX mall with plenty of stores to shop from. the Seoul metro is on the opposite side of the block(15 min brisk walk)and you can go above ground and view the nice skyline or stay below ground in the mall which connectes the hotel to the subway. on my last night there, my friends and i enjoyed a little too much soju and the doorman at the Intercontinental was respectful and helpful to get me into my room with no problems.

Great Atmosphere

The Intercontinental was a very busy hotel, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. This was a family vacation to a hotel that obviously catered to the business side with the conference center next door but still the staff never neglected anyone. Access to shopping mall was very easy and tours available were very useful.
