Stayed here for five nights while in Seoul. Location is fantastic. Right next to the Hyundai Department Store in Gangnam and only steps away from the subway line. This is the only hotel I stayed in Korea where inroom internet service was not complimentary. However...More

This may be the best hotel in which I have ever stayed. The room was stunning, the decor in the common areas was beautiful, and the customer service was absolutely flawless (and the staff speak very good English, if you are looking for that).

A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important business exhibitions and meetings are held. The enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a myriad of things to do and see, including a large aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
take a stroll nearby through the tranquil royal burial grounds of Seonjeongneung, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I dont think there is club, but it seems like they have live bar at the lobby lounge. Of course no ice link as well. They have swimming pool. The most benefit to stay this hotel if you like shopping or if you have any occasion in the coex mall , it is really convenient due to the hotel is connect to the coex mall
If I were you, I'd take taxi. If no traffic, the tax costs less than 10,000KRW (according to Naver map, it's about 6KM, less than 10mins). Black/luxury taxi provides better service but is far less common and costs double... More
If I were you, I'd take taxi. If no traffic, the tax costs less than 10,000KRW (according to Naver map, it's about 6KM, less than 10mins). Black/luxury taxi provides better service but is far less common and costs double. And a big IF her is the traffic condition -- the time and fare can easily go up (even double) in peak hours.
Subway is convenient especially if to avoid traffic hour -- take Budang line from Suseo, transfer at Seolleung to #2 line, to Samseong station; Grand IC is at exit #5. About 5~6 stops total; short ride but with connection.
Another alternative is bus -- many buses run from Suseo to Samseong, if you feel comfortable doing so, or simply adventurous.
