Harmony Ballroom and 11 banquet rooms are available for events. On the top floor, Sky Lounge provides modern Italian cuisines with a skyline view, while four restaurants allure gourmet palates with delicacies made of fresh local ingredients.
Great Hotel in a Great Location. Hotel staff are overly friendly, and bend over backwards to help guests. Being above the COEX mall is nice if you do not want to travel too far, and want to be able to do some late shopping/eating. The only downsides are the televisions are incredibly old and paying extra for internet.. For such a nice hotel, I figured they'd at least have a flat screen tv (not an old LG tube that's on its last leg) and internet included. Do note that this hotel also has electrical power outlets in each room to accommodate most tourists: 110V Three-Prong (USA and Japan), 220V (Europe), and 220V (Korea).
As start of my stay, I loved the view, cleanliness, location of hotel for accessabilities, services, food and transportation.
I truly enjoyed lodging at Coex Intercontinental since it was closed by Apgujung area. Best thing about this hotel is you don't have to go outside to go shopping. You can take escalater and it will take you to coex mall too. One thing that I didn't like about the hotel was to use internet in the room. it cost W* plus tax which will cost US $* lus tax. Hopefully they could let us use the wireless internet in the room with out any charges. Overall, it was a great trip!
great location in the middle of everything. well furnished too.
