My stay at the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas, was brief but fantastically pleasant & I would not hesitate to book again when in Seoul. The room & bed were possibly one of the most comfortable during this trip, the bathroom was very generously proportioned. Service and staff were exemplary with both the check and checkout process being seamlessly quick and...

The rooms, service, and staff are nothing short of outstanding! I stay here every time I visit Seoul and I am always impressed by the customer service and the staffs ability to make me feel like I am at my "home away from home." The entire area has just completed a renovation, which has made the property and location even...

Great service allowed us to have an amazing stay at the hotel. Truly appreciated upgrade to the best suite, which made such an anniversary! Also, the COEX & Parnas mall right next to the hotel has various choices of shops and restaurants. Definitely recommendable hotel!

We stayed here as I was speaking at a conference at COEX. The hotel is beautifully appointed and the breakfasts (especially) are amazing. A great way to start the day. There is an excellent Food Court under the Dept Store next door and an underground network full of shopping and eating - out of the bitter winter cold. Nearby, at...

This hotel does not have the latest high-tech installations with chic decor in the room, but the grand palace provides its guests with warm, charming, and sweet hospitality. The bell desk attendants were helpful and highly knowledgeable for providing the directions. The lifts were very efficient without a long wait. In particular, the team in the club lounge provided outstanding...

I stayed here for a week, everything went very well. The staff spoke fluent english and were highly attentive, the rooms are extremely modern (with more home automation than any other hotel I've ever stayed in), and the food is above average. Especially the breakfasts, I highly recommend anyone who stays here to try their gourmet breakfast buffet.

Actually I'm quite confused with Intercontinental brand, either they are exceptionally luxurious and made your stay memorable, or they are extremely average and you just want to forget how much you paid for a stay you expected more.

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.
