Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was my friends and I first time back in Korea after almost a decade. We chose GLAD COEX in Gangnam because of the location and ambience of it. It is very easy to find as it is right next to the samseong station and nearby the coex mall. The receptionist I believe his name was Leo! was very accommodating and understanding of the language barrier we had. The interior is very modern and clean and the front desk people wear Hawaiian shirts which I thought was a unique and fun twist from their interior design. Our views were amazing and the amenities provided were very nice as well. One plus I will mention is the currency exchange machine located in the lobby which was a lifesaver for my friends and I because the rates at other places can be a bit high. Overall I recommend this hotel for those who want a nice place to relax after a long day of exploring.

The location is right beside Park Hyatt Hotel, which is in front of Samseoung Station 1 subway and COEX Mall is at Samseoung Station 6 subway exit. So yes, it is near COEX. Very convenient. The rooms are quite small but very clean and functional. The beds, pillows, linens are very comfortable. I would say it is a trendy hotel. The price point is quite reasonable.

The location right outside of Samseong station is superb. It's perfect if you plan on spending time at COEX for a conference or shopping. The room is small but the space is efficiently used and even had a decent view. The bed was comfortable and room was very clean. The rate was very reasonable compared to similar hotels nearby. Parking was also reasonable at only 5000 won (for the valet) when most Seoul hotels charge a ton or don't provide parking. While professional, the staff didn't give off the warmest vibe. My only complaint was the lack of flexibility with check in. They did not start check in until 3pm on the dot despite the small lobby being packed with people. There was hardly any room to stand. With people paranoid about social distancing I thought they could've checked some people in a bit earlier. None of the staff looked particularly busy and were just waiting awkwardly until 3pm. After check-in began there was a mad rush for the three (very slow) elevators which caused more congestion.

Chloe at the front desk was very helpful! Gotek is loxated very very very conveniently right outside the train statiin so we did not have to drag our luggages everywhere in search of the hotel. Starfield mall is also just right opposite. Room was comfy enough, we enjoyed our stay!

I also needed additional towels, so I asked the front desk, and they were delivered in less than 5 minutes. It was also faster than other 5-star hotels. /Best /Ruchard

Our recent stay at Glad Gangnam Coex Center was marked by a blend of positives and negatives, leaving us with a mixed impression overall. Upon arrival, we encountered some issues with the front desk staff. The female staff member we interacted with was not particularly friendly, and there was confusion regarding our booking. Initially, they informed us that there was only one booking under my name, despite having two. It took some time and effort to resolve the issue, with no apologies offered for the inconvenience caused. However, the male front desk staff members were much more accommodating and assisted us with ordering jumbo taxis, which was appreciated. On a brighter note, the rooms were clean and well-maintained, and we found the housekeeping staff to be friendly and attentive during our stay. The location of the hotel, close to Starfield mall, was convenient for shopping and exploring the area. However, we couldn't help but notice that the rooms at Glad Gangnam Coex Center were noticeably smaller compared to our previous stay at Glad Mapo. Additionally, while it was convenient to have a coin laundry in the building, the lift was rather slow, and we found it concerning that the key card could access all levels of the hotel, raising security issues.

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The rooms were updated and exceptionally cleaned daily. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was pretty well soundproofed which was important for me as a light sleeper. I also found it well within my budget and affordable for the area (Gangnam).

There were only two downsides. The first is that it is pretty far away from many tourist attractions - at least 40 mins on the subway. The Samseoung station is right outside though which is nice, and given I was there on buisness with just limited time to site see, it ended up working well for me. The second is that the wifi was slow and spotty which made Zoom calls difficult at times. Connectivity could be updated.

All and all, however, I would stay there again when visiting Seoul, especially when on business.

It was a beautiful hotel but service was soulless.
Only after checkout, when we returned to collect our luggage, did we feel any warmth from the front desk. The two ladies in uniform, thank you. The guy in the black suit - you ought to take lessons from them.

Aside from that, the room (06-10) was compact but functional. Thoroughly modern with a sliver of a window, but it suffices.

Like the service, the room felt “professional” and distant too.

The best part of the hotel is the location. It’s next to the subway, and easy stroll to COEX mall.

Yes, use the KAL Limousine service. It costs about £11 which is good value and stops at the Intercontinental hotel (Grand Seoul Parma’s not Coex). The hotel is the other side of the intersection (5 minutes walk).
