I came here with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Used IHG points without problem. I noted the anniversary in my reservation notes and I received some complimentary surprises in the room... a bottle of wine, some chocolates, and a pair of small porcelain ducks (a Korean symbol of marriage). Was a very nice touch. King bed was luxurious...

I travel a little bit, and usually always have something to complain about in an hotel. Could be big, could be small but I often have a thing or two to say. This time, I can't find anything! My room was quiet which is my #1 criteria. It wasn't too big but big enough not to feel cramped. Bathroom was...

Have stayed here a dozen times over the past 15 years. It is absolutely my favorite hotel anywhere. Immaculately clean, warm and professional staff who provide top level service and make you feel at home. The restaurants are amazing, as is the fitness club and business centre.

The hotel had a great location. There was a small convenience store open 24 hours at the ground floor and a 12 minute walk to restaurants that close at 3am, 5am or one that was even open 24 hours for a full meal. The lady at concierge was very helpful in helping us purchase something only available online (which was...

The hotel is very nice and our room was very nice. Upon arriving, we were upgraded to a suite, which was a pleasant end to our day's journey. The room was nice. The breakfast buffet is huge and nice. Pretty much everything about this hotel is nice and you can't go wrong by staying here. What was outstanding was the...

I was unimpressed at best with this hotel. While the hotel itself is in a very good location close to COEX and the COEX Mall (below) and is clean and neat, the staff basically ruined the experience for me. I tried to use the concierge a few times and they were very abrupt with me and only gave me extremely...

The impression from lobby to room to dining is indeed a Grand hotel, old class elegance. I was in a junior suite, which was sufficiently large although still bare as compared to the opulence of other grand hotels such as Ritz Carlton or Raffles. Upon check in I found an item left behind by the previous occupant so housekeeping must...

The Co-ex location was fully booked and this one is around the corner. It was good but not spectacular. The Co-Ex location in my opinion is far superior and that one would be my first choice over this one.

Very very close to subway station and shopping mall. The room is very comfortable with great size. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. One of my most fantastic stays at a hotel in Seoul.

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.
