Recent guest reviews

This hotel is great. However, the lobby bar menu was terrible. There was no simple appetizers. It was a great bar with drinks, but no simple foods. I would expect some satay, shrimp, nachos, chips, chicken bites, egg/spring rolls, dumplings, anything simple bar and snack food. the manager needs to get on this. very poor selection. other than that the hotel is fantastic.

Great location in the Gangnam district. Incredibly kind and helpful staff. Rooms are clean, comfortable, with spacious bathrooms ( and amazing water pressure). I didn't want to get out of the shower. The breakfast buffet was the best. Make sure you get the complementary breakfast with your reservation. This is truly an international buffet. Some of the stuff I had no idea how to eat. The gym is large and very well equipped. You can even practice putting and your golf swing. ( this is not a driving range, just a place to swing). The lap pool is nice with lane separators. It is extremely shallow at one end however which I didn't love. The exercise equipment is plentiful with the exception of the elliptical machines, there were only 3, while there were about 20 treadmills. This gym really is large. There is even a guy shining shoes. I will definitely stay here again!

I love to stay at Intercontinental Hotels worldwide as their hotel caters to various business trip needs. This hotel is located at the business district in Samsung district and the hotel is connected to Coex shopping district and other business buildings. The hotel staff are very professionally trained and most of them speak enough English to communicate. This hotel is an excellent place for both business trip and leisure trip as various shopping is only an elevator away from the rooms.

I stayed at the Grand Intercontinental for the fourth time and will be coming back in the future. The property is great including the rooms, restaurants and the fitness center and the staff is super friendly and attentive. IHG members receive great recognition too, incl. complimentary upgrade to a suite. I would like to especially commend the whole staff in the Club Lounge on the 26th floor and particularly Jenny Yoo who was going out of her way to make my (and other guests) stay as pleasant as possible - big thank you!

Hotel is connected with subway stations, Hyundai Department store, and Koex starfield mall. Easy access for Shopping and dinings. And the guest service at hotel is great! I've been the guest at Grand Seoul Intercontinental for 10years, And Stella 유진 Kim at Club Lounge and 오의준 at Bell desk has been working since then and their professional services and care are extraordinary. They make the best effort to make us feel home. It's the best hotel for family and business trip.

It was the first I came back here after its major remodel. We found it still one of the best in Seoul and were glad IC kept it instead of rebranding it. We made some extra request to the concierge team in preparing arriving and it was done perfectly. The concierge team was professional and courteous while the pre-arriving communication was clear and timely. Besides the concierge, the service was excellent, such as check-in and housekeeping. The building itself was remodeled recently but still keep the classic and elegant feeling, while most of the amenities are updated and well functional. It was a special for us and we were glad the management team kept it the same excellency after all the years.

I love this hotel as it reminds me of a much more luxurious time that has sadly gone. Rooms are a good size with a work area and plenty of wardrobe room. the beds are large and very comfortable the pillows are wonderful and exremely good quality. the bedding is excellent the shower is lovely with great preassure and goos temperature control (you can get blasted by cold water as you turn it on so beware and adjust the head) the towels are lovely and fluffy and big and plentiful internet is free and fast there is a fridge with space there is a nespresso coffee machine.(No milk) The curtains are thick and close fully giving you a good "Blackout" for a good night sleep. A great quality hotel in a great location

I have made the Grand Intercontinental Seoul Parnas my go-to place when staying in Seoul, despite having lifetime Platinum status with Starwood and Platinum status with Marriott. The reasons for staying here when I am in Seoul is the service I receive from the Club Lounge staff and the location. I do feel that the rooms can use some updating. One issue I always have is that the air conditioner does not quite cool enough for me, nor circulate the air. I always have a fan sent to my room to circulate the air. And the other issue is that the internet could be faster. The location of the hotel is excellent. It is in the middle of a business area in Gangnam and is located above a major mall and a subway station. Many of the people I have to meet know the hotel and are happy to come and meet me at the hotel. But where this hotel shines is the service from the staff at the Club Lounge and the Ambassador check-in area. I have been coming to this hotel for several years now, and there are several newer people working in these roles. Stella Kim always wants to ensure that my experience is excellent and makes me feel very welcome. This time she helped me in advance to arrange a car with a driver whom I had used in the past. When I arrived it was all arranged and went perfectly. The Club Lounge staff, Like Julie and Yomi also made me feel welcome and ensured the meeting rooms were booked for the meetings I conducted inside the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to others looking for an excellent level of service.

Clean rooms, great staff. Shower fixture a bit dates. Staffs is courteous and speaks English well. Easy to find. Nice and quiet. Good bar downstairs. Would come back again. Part of the IHG hotel network.

I've stayed at Intercon Coex and Marriott and this is the best of the three. Rooms are nice. Great gym and pool. Quick breakfast with quality options. Very good lobby lounge for a quite drink with friends or business associates. Right next door to the city airport terminal. Also had a small event in a conference room and the staff were excellent.
