InterContinental Seoul COEX

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Perfect if you have to work at the COEX convention hall. The staff is helpful and attentive. Restaurants are priced high, however the quality is good. The location to so many good outside restaurants makes this a great meeting place for work.

Counter person did not know what he was doing. I woild not recommed this hotel.

Very convenient location next to KOEX and World Trade Center in Seoul. Professional and friendly staff. Nice room and good breakfast!

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

Right in the business center at COEX, this hotel is very convenient for both business traveller & shopping with connection by subway to allover Seoul.

The only disappointment I had is the Hotel rate doesn't included internet and Breakfast.

Hotel is in a part of Seoul convenient to the wedding we attended, a nice mall, and famous temple. The English speaking staff was professional and accomodating.

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.

Good clean hotel up to standard. Now knowing a little more about Seoul I would choose a different location next time.

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.

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.

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.
