Editorial review:

This hotel is even more luxurious than its sister hotel, COEX Intercontintenal. If you book your room in advance on the website, you'll pay about W200,000. There is jazz playing in the atrium lobby. There is antique furniture throughout and seven restaurants to choose from. The rooms on the lower floors are bigger than the rooms on the higher floors. They have paper screens, curtains, Korean furniture, and excellently stocked minibars. A live Filipina band plays in Hunter's Bar starting at 8:30 pm.

                    Rooms well designed and quite spacious . Staff excellant ! Good choice of restaraunts. Tipping is not allowed, and the staff will not accept a tip-very different to most places.

                    When we arrived after a long overnight flight we were told by the hotel that they had no reservation for us. We of course had a copy of our reservation with a conf. number from Booking dot com, so they eventually found us a room.This is the first time this has happened to us using Booked.net !

                    The lobby Lounge is very nice and warm with great staff and a nice choice of drinks. There is a nice department store and a shopping mal easy accessible via the hotel basement.

                    It would be totally perfect if hotel guests and consuming clients could use the Internet free of charge.

                    The showers in several rooms do not work properly.

                    It's right next to financial district. If you are trader doing business in Seoul. Location probably couldn't be beat.

                    The bathroom door had 3 inch open gap from the floor. I'm not sure why. Bathroom towel had a strong chlorine smell to it. Tooth brush that's normally provided in the hotel in this class were asking 5,000 won instead. Automatic curtain didn't fully close. Bathtub floor had black markings and rubber floor mat was hanging on the towel rack. Water from the bathroom sink was backing up. We went to the concierge and requested to get a replacement room at 6:30am. Concierge asked to come back after 6.5 hours later because all the rooms are booked and none of them are ready. It's hard to believe and even with giving them the benefit of the doubt... They should have empty rooms available for just in case... Doorman and porter will not accept gratuity. I've never been to hotels where they refuse gratuity. They will promptly add 10% service charge to your bill. Buffet is supposedly be excellent but we didn't like our entire experience with the hotel, we simply didn't want to spend time inside to bother with the restaurants. If you valet park. It's 20,000 won to your room. Wi-fi is 25,000 won.

                    Afternoon tea was excellent, room service good, room lovely. Thank you

                    There wasn't really a bar to have a drink with any life. There are too many bar type places and each one only has a few people in. Drinks also were ridiculously expensive.
