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.

Great Hotel in the Heart of the city with shopping and dining establishments near by. The F&B are very good and the Exec lounge although small is good. The staff at the front desk speak perfect English and are helpful.

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.
