    InterContinental is a great place to stay if you're traveling on an expense account or meeting at CoEx. There are better values for the convention center area, however. What it does offer is a great all-you-can-drink wine buffet for three hours every evening. One warning: The price of the spa is not included in the stay.

    Excellent service. Every time I've stayed here, I've received a complimentary upgrade. Rooms were clean, comfortable, stylish, and very large. Wish my trips had been longer than one or two nights.

    For it's location (with another Intercontinental Hotel just a 10 minute walk the other side of COEX...) and luxury status, there are far more enticing options in the COEX area of Gangnam.
    Though the service is friendly, and the hotel is of course, immaculate, I found the whole atmosphere to be a bit fussy and overdone. It's the sort of luxury hotel where you can feel the effort of the decor- there's just no ease about the place. This being said, I am always partial to a more airy, modern approach- so if decor with a heavy, flourished hand floats your boat, you'll be right at home.
    The other detracting factor is that the spa and fitness services on site are not included in the price of your room, and for the price you'll be paying, that seems a bit scandalous to me. You'll pay a daily fee for usage- which you will also do for wi-fi in your room (Why it's not included in the cost of the room is a mystery to me...who ISN'T going to want wi-fi?)
    For what the hotel promises in luxury, it lacks in common sense.

    This is your typical Intercontinental hotel, and like most within the brand, the Seoul Parnas has great service, immaculately clean and traditionally furnished rooms and a plethora of amenities on the premises. It's a 5-10 minute walk from the Intercontinental COEX, which is simpler and caters to a business clientele. This location is the "luxury" one. However, for the price of a guest room, I was surprised that they charge 38,500 won (about $35 US) to use the sauna and fitness area, which is open from 6:00am - 11:00pm, for just one day. They also charge 25,000 won (about $22 US) for wi-fi in your room (for a 24 hour period). However, Wi-fi is free in public areas, of which there are many. There’s a cigar bar, a trendy bar/lounge, an espresso café, just to name a few of the spots to chill outside your room. The hotel is super convenient: It’s just outside of the Samseong subway station, exit 5, and is a 5 minute cab ride to Gangnam and COEX. You won’t have a particularly unique hotel experience here, but it’s a solid bet for convenience, cleanliness and service.

    Classic hotel in Seoul. Old design, so the entrance isn't open and grand like the Hyatt. Nice facilities, restaurants (good breakfast buffet), rooms, and conveniently located.
