As I have jointed the ambassador club of inter-continental group, I have decided to stay in Coex Intercontinental during my short stay in Seoul. My over-night flight arrived at Seoul very early (at around 6am) and so all I wanted was a hot shower with a comfortable bed for me to take enough rest before heading out. Luckily enough and...

Stayed in this hotel in April 2014 during my business trip. Excellent hotel. Like the convenient underground walk from hotel to the subway station. Eating and shopping places are plenty, including a large nearby COEX Mall. In addition, I like the convenience of airport shuttles to-from airport to this hotel, although I would caution to budget more time from hotel...

IC has two properties at Coex Mall and we stayed with the one next to casino this time. As AMB membership, I was expecting to be upgraded to club room, however, due to the new policy applied since Jan 1, 2015, children less than 12 years old are not allowed to lounge therefore, we choose a superior room instead.

This is an excellent hotel due to location, service and conveniences. The property sits right over the Coex center, which can be accessed underground through the hotel without ever going outside. The Coex center offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants, a full market and access to the subway and train stations. The front desk and concierge services are first...

We spent 4 Reward nights at this beautiful hotel. The hotel is located near the COEX complex, which is a good 90 minutes KAL Limo drive from Incheon airport into the southern part of Seoul (32US$ per person, return ticket). The location is great if you are coming for business (numerous office and firms buildings around), but less for tourists...

Pricy hotel, even with corporate rates. Hotel is good for being next to the Coex mall, and was next to our office but other than that ...pricey and the service/room doesn't meet expectations. Room was small .. I've stayed in bigger/cheaper hotels in Seoul. Access to eateries in the mall next door, or a short walk outside is a good...

We select this hotel only because it is located next to the COEX conference centre. The hotel is no doubt well equipped with the right hardware.

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.
