My husband and I loved our stay at Grand Intercontinental. It's located right next to a huge mall named Coex and you can find almost everything in this location. The comfort of the mattress was a huge plus and the breakfast buffet was amazing. Also, they allow you to check out by 2pm, which is 2 hours later than normal check out time with no extra charge if you give reception early notice. The only inconvenience was that they don't provide free wifi.

Standard room closet space is lacking, so if you need space to hang clothes, upgrade to the Junior Suite for sure.

The location is perfect and room condition is also great.

The hotel was comfortable with great restaurants and friendly staff taking care of you every step of the way. Great service with good sized room. The bathroom could use an upgrade. But overall the ambience was wonderful. The staff at the front desk named Eui Joon Oh was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks to first rate service!!!

excellent staff and great hotel fantastic location and very nice shopping mall under the hotel, i would for sure recommend it anyone visiting korea

This hotel is gorgeous. It is right in the heart of Gangnam district where the financial and IT businesses are located. The hotel staff is kind and they speak very good English too. I recommend this hotel to travelers to Seoul. One down side though is the price which seems pretty expensive compared to the Ritz Carlton Seoul or the W Hotel Seoul but the expensive pricing is all compensated by the location being the best. If you are a tourist and would like something more luxurious for the bang without location requests go for the W Hotel instead.

Great Hotel in Gangnam area. While they do cater heavily towards the business customer, I was there with my family along with another family. Other than their no minors allowed in the pool policy, we had a great experience. Located right above a couple different malls (Coex being one of them), there was always something to do or see. Major rail station downstairs so getting around was a breeze. Staff was super courteous and helpful, and all spoke English. Cel phone available in the room, with minimal fees... Add in the easy access to great food in walking distance, as well as a Casino and duty free shopping, the Grand Parnas will definitely be our choice for hotel on our next visit to Seoul!

Great experience in Seoul, and the Intercontinental Grand was a big part of it. All staff that we ran into were extremely helpful, and they all spoke English very well. The only 2 things that I think could have been better would be cheaper or free internet (free in the lobby) and also lowering the child age (they have it set at 12) to use the pool. I understand that they heavily cater to the business crowd, so I can't really fault them for that though. The location of the hotel has got to be one of the best in Seoul. Would definitely stay there again when I return

The club level is the best, free internet, free breakfast and snack throughout the day. free Cocktails after 5 pm. Spotless service and the location is great for business, shopping and entertainment. Near the city air terminal (one minute walk) where you can hop onto an airport shuttle that leaves every 15 minutes

Standard room closet space is lacking, so if you need space to hang clothes, upgrade to the Junior Suite for sure.
