Located in the heart of Seoul, the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas is an ideal place for business travellers, thanks to the hotel’s proximity to KWTC, COEX, CALT, DFS, department stores and theaters. Operating with 517 spacious rooms, the hotel has completed a glamorous remodeling of the lobby, restaurants and banquet halls. The new Grand Ballroom, the largest and the most updated in Korea, is perfect for any event, while exquisite cuisines await you in all five hotel restaurants.
Excellent hotel to stay for a business trip. Conviently located in the gangnam area, the central business district in Seoul.
This hotel is in great location. There is a Hyundai Department store next to the hotel, you can get food to anything you want in quality. And also Coex mall right under the hotel is very convenient, movie theaters, book store, music store, coffee shops, restaurants, bakery...etc. Great staff, nice service, room is very clean and large. Lounge and restaurants are pricey.
I stayed at two Intercontinental Hotels during my brief excursion to Asia, and I have to say, the staff at the Grand Intercontinental Seoul was the best, most easily understood staff of the two. I was very happy to stay in this hotel. The amenities were great, from the big fluffy robes to the slippers provided, it was a great experience. They had a great business center with little private cubicles to access the internet to check email and such. Great fitness center with all kinds of equipment and an awesome lobby with lots going on. It also helped that this hotel was only a 10min walk to the Olympic Stadium where Cirque du Soleil's Alegria was performing. It was a very convenient location. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who needs to stay in downtown Seoul near the Coex buidling.
