Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We just returned home from a two weeks stay in seoul, four days in the hotel and the balance at my parents. This was our fourth trip to seoul but our first time at the hotel. I think the grand intercontinental is the perfect place for first timers to Seoul -easy to get to from the airport. The bus drops you off right in the front. Perfect if you’re traveling with lots of bags. -subway stop is downstairs adjacent to the mall which btw also houses one of the most popular and best tasting soups -everybody speaks English here. Everybody. Staff is professional courteous and more than willing to help with anything and everything -centrally locates. Three stops down from Gangnam, about a $10 cab ride to Itaewon and about 30-40 minutes from all the places on the best of lists (nam Sam tower, palaces, Insadong, etc) -McDonald’s, Starbucks, coffee bean and tea leaf is downstairs for those who want American style coffee and food. We would definitely stay again

My family and I️ stayed at Grand Intercontinental Parnas in Seoul Korea and it was our first time in Seoul as well as the hotel. The hotel representative, Leah Jeon, was very helpful and very accommodating. Without her, our stay in Korea would have been different since we booked our 2 rooms walking into the hotel in the evening. I️ would highly recommend Grand Intercontinental to family, friends and whoever asks me where to stay in Korea. I️ give both Leah Jeon and the hotel a 10 for excellent rating!!

With Marunouchi Tokyo, the best hotel with best service I have stayed. Convenient bus service from/to airport from hotel entrance. Shopping mall, restaurants, metro station under the hotel. Outstanding sauna, gym, swimming pool. Great breakfast.

As a repeat traveller to the city and this hotel, one can not fault the recognition received for being both a regular traveller as well as being a Spire Elite IHG Rewards Club member. Colleagues always accomodationg and wanting to assist. Special mention must go to the Club Floor team and the dooremen. Christmas lunch at the Grand Kitchen was a feast to be had. Visually appealing and sumptuous to taste. Well done !!

The hotel is a bit outdated, but you can tell it was once the pinnacle of luxury in Seoul. Though the hard product is showing its wear and tear, the soft product is still top notch. Great amenities and awesome room slippers. The hotel is connected to COEX so plenty to see and eat a short walk away. The City Air Terminal is also very close by, which makes checking in and transport to the airport a breeze. Breakfast buffet at the restaurant is also very good. Service both in the hotel as well as the restaurant were great, and we had no problem speaking English to the staff. Great location, great staff.

Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Facility has many conveniences like an underground link to subway and shopping arcade. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable, especially Gold Key concierges. Hotel is located in a business district some distance from central Seoul but subway makes it accessible to everything.

I really enjoyed my time at Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas in 4 days. It was by far the best experience and service we have ever had at any hotel. The staff was so friendly and accommodating that we didn't want to leave. A location is good and very convient to travel.Please express our sincere gratitude to the staff at Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas. Nathakrit Jirachodchutikul

I don't normally do this, but for an luxury international hotel chain, it was very surprising that I found it difficult to find staff who could speak English to a point that I could understand and be understood easily. My stay started promising enough at the front desk, but when it came to finding a simple dinner within the hotel everything was downhill - starting from the conceirge to the staff at the Kitchen who had trouble understanding a simple question of what they would recommend. I know this is Seoul, but I expected better from the Grand Intercontinental chain.

This InterCon is way beyond my expectation. The property is very beautiful, the rooms are great, and the breakfast buffet was just wow. What beats all of the above was the staff - Jenny Yoo and Stella Kim treated us like we are the royals. They welcomed us like we are coming home, and their attention to details is the first I have ever seen. The great hospitality by the staff at the InterCon has made our stay very memorable. Definitely will visit every time when staying in Seoul.

Overall the hotel room is good and comfortable, service is good, staff could converse in English. Buffet breakfast is fantastic! I will stay there again on my next business trip to Seoul in the future.
