For most tourists, this hotel might not be in the best location, as Gangnam COEX is rather far away from the city center by subway (unless you are in a group tour, then it doesn't matter). However, I think this hotel might be the best value among the 5-star hotels in Seoul.
If you have some time to really enjoy the hotel, I recommend getting the business King room package, which includes free wifi, the use of the fitness center and continental breakfast for two. Why? Because the fitness center in this hotel is luxurious and HUGE, and it is even equipped with clean & sanitized workout outfit from top to toe if you didn't bring your own. It is really THE best in all the luxurious hotels that I have seen. InterContinental Parnas, which is just on the other end of the COEX Mall, on the other hand, has a very small and crowded fitness area, and it costs more to stay there. So, please really take advantage of this special opportunity to see what a 5-star fitness center should be if you do choose to stay at InterContinental COEX.
The continental breakfast is comparable to those extravagant display of the breakfast in the luxury hotels in the Southeast Asia, like those in Singapore and Indonesia. I always enjoy my breakfast there. And there is a Lotte duty free store right next to the hotel, so it is great for shoppers.
The downside of this hotel is that there are two subway stations in the area, but it takes about 10 minutes to walk to either one of those.
