Tired and overpricedPosted Mar 25, 2013
Pros: good location next to Samseong metro station
All food & drink in the hotel are woefully overpriced - an orange juice in the bar is the same cost as a full meal in a mid-priced local restaurant. Go out of the hotel and turn right - a 'street of speciality restaurants' is the second road on your right with all options from Korean to Italian.

In the heart of Gangnam-StylePosted Mar 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel was great. Convenient to a large mall underneath and great choice of eating places nearby. Staff was great and hotel was very quiet.

Excellent room size ; no wifiPosted Jan 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Good-sized rooms that comfortably fit family of 4( 3 double beds at an additional fee). Well- stocked with enough toiletries and towels without having to ask, unlike some other hotels. However the free wifi at the lobby level is a myth. Only managed to get connected briefly after great difficulty. I suppose management wants guests to pay for connection in the rooms.

There are better hotels in SeoulPosted Jan 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
Spacious room. Convenient location. Courteous staff. Poor ventilation. Poor noise insulation. Compared to average $200 hotels in US this hotel seems like a bargain. But compared to the other hotels in Seoul in the same price category, such as Grant Hyatt or Ritz Carlton, InterContinental feels just adequate. There were people smoking on non-smoking floor, and the ventilation carried the stench throughout the corridor and to other rooms. The front staff promptly moved our room to a different floor. The ventilation continued to be a nuisance since you can smell the food from the other room through ventilation. The location is excellent as it's located right at the subway station. There is a department store and underground shopping mall right next to the hotel with plenty of restaurants and shopping venue. Overall a nice hotel, but I'd rather stay at previously mentioned Ritz Carlton or Grand Hyatt instead.

Great location, clean and comfy!Posted Jan 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
There's really nothing to complain about. Interaction with the front desk was standard. I booked this hotel because it seemed to have the best reviews with the ability to cancel or re-book without penalty. (My plans were potentially in flux at the time). Their website doesn't tell you how to get there other than Taxi and the approx cost which is HIGH. I took the 10B bus and it brought me right to the door for 15,000 won (approx. $15 USD cheap for a 1.5 hour ride). I believe the 11A bus will bring you to the right location. There will be people who can help you, but if you need to confirm, each of the blue signs on the curb will have the destinations listed "Grand Intercontinental Seoul" or "Grand Intercontinental Seoul Parnas" was on both of those signs. You shouldn't get lost once you get there, just remember your luggage is in bottom hold of the of the bus. The hotel is connected to a convention center (COEX), the Seven Luck Casino, and a mall with tons of shopping, food,a movie theater, and Samseong Subway Station. There's a Bongeunsa Buddhist temple just north of the COEX area. Internet is paid by the minute to a maximum of 24,000 KRW per day, but I had internet access via my rental smart phone (picked up at the airport), which had 30 MBit LTE speeds. All in all, this hotel made for a great first stay in Seoul.
