They called me directly to ask whether the room was OK. Breakfast Breakfast is great, lots...

The most significant here is great park with a temple across the street. Hotel itself is one of the best I ever stayed, with extremely friendly and helpful staff, big and clean rooms, delicious breakfast and really big gym. Enough good location (taking into account the size of Seoul) and closeness to main highways.

Big hotel. Lots of people. We slotted in and out. Not much personal service. Concierge was helpful & courteous. Reception on check-in was not the friendliest or accommodating of our questions. Otherwise fine

The service, maybe the best of any hotel I have ever stayed. The rooms are well maintained and the hotel is full of luxury amenities from the television, internet and swimming pool. The hotel is located next the COEX Mall which makes shopping, eating and going to the subway convenient. It is located in the middle of Gangnam.

Excellent hotel. I've stayed at all of the luxury hotels in Seoul before. And this hotel ranks up with the best of them. It's on the quiet side, which is actually it's best feature, unlike Grand Hyatt or even Chosun Hotel or Walkerhill Hotel. Clean, modern with good service. Other huge benefit is the good location in Coex if you...

Service is excellent, from check-in to check-out, concierge, in room dining, and laundry - every one is courteous, helpful, and motivated to please. The room layout was nice - I like sitting at the desk facing the window to cut down glare and have a decent view (get a higher floor). Bed is comfortable, love the pillows. Bathroom has separate...

For me, it has the best location in Seoul. Above a huge mall with endless shopping and eateries opportunities, in front of one of the most peaceful places on Earth and extremely well connected with metro, buses and limousine shuttle for airports. Rooms are a bit dated and small but comfortable. Amount and quality of bath amenities is highly appreciated....

Staying in Samseongdong / COEX

Neighbourhood Profile
Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important business exhibitions and meetings are held. The enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a myriad of things to do and see, including a large aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or take a stroll nearby through the tranquil royal burial grounds of Seonjeongneung, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
