Happy and attentive staff, great hotel management and easy access to shopping and restaurants

We had a wonderful anniversary weekend at the Grand InterContinental Parnas. Management even surprised us with a celebration cake (which was delicious)!! Thank you. This was our first stay at the Grand in Seoul. We will definitely be booking this hotel again for our next visit here. PS: Lovely comfy beds too!

A great stay!”

Been staying in Intercontinental Seoul Parnas for couple of times before and it was always a great stay! The room is spacious, everything clean and spotless. Very close to subway station and to shopping mall which is very convenient. Concierge was also very friendly and helpful. The queue for checking-in at the front desk can be quite long though, especially during weekend and during check-in time around 3pm. Also, the lift can be very crowded when there's a special event in the hotel.

Nice City-Break in Seoul”

Proximity to City Air Terminal for early check-in, 2 mins walk to metro station and 3 train stops away from Gangnam

The Intercontinental Seoul Parnas has a great location if you want to avoid spending $$$ for a hotel in the city centre. It is located right next to a metro stop that connects you easily to Gangnam and all other areas in Seoul. The City Air Terminal is next door to the hotel where you can check in your luggage hours in advance of your flight. The offer shuttle transport to Incheon Airport, which was very convenient. The hotel itself is not that great, partly due to the renovation work. The lobby is not welcoming, breakfast was very crowded and the room we stayed in was really outdated. However, we read the reviews beforehand and were prepared accordingly. It is okay for a few nights if you spend most of your time sightseeing and eating out in restaurants. Gangnam is great for a few drinks at night, it has a great atmosphere!

Good for business travelers”

great location, comfortable, friendly

The hotel was undergoing major renovation work during my stay, it was a bit inconvenient as the direct access to the subway was closed. Despite that, this hotel had a great location in Gangnam area. It's a good choice if you are joining a conference at the other intercontinental hotel nearby but also keen to see other parts of the city. Room was big and comfy. Staff were nice and efficient. The lifts were a bit slow though -- I hope they have upgraded it after the renovation.

Very comfortable atmosphere , rooms are clean and tidy, friendly and helpful staff

It was my first time in Seoul and I'm very impressed by the staff. They were very helpful kind friendly and attentive. Most staff speaks good English , even a few weren't that fluent but manage to help with what I needed. Especially the bell desk and conceriege service was super! I will definitely come back to this hotel. Located at the Gangnam area. Hyundei dept store was just right next door. If there is an elec plug next to the bed will be best for charging my phone over night , instead of on the work desk.

Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas”

This is my go to hotel when I go for work in Seoul. It is very conveniently located near a Subway and also is attached to the COEX mall, so there are additional conveniences available as a result. Would not recommend staying here if you will be spending your time primarily in Gangbuk, but if you are staying on the Gangnam, then very convenient. It also does help that I am an IHG member.

It's the best hotel that I had stay before in Seoul. Someone in Seoul also guarantee this is the best hotel in Seoul. Room is quite big and very comfortable and clean. Bed is so soft and warm. All staffs can speak English very well and service you very well. Breakfast is good and dining in room is also good. Hotel is located in very good location. It's place in co-ex mall so you can find everything around you. You can go everywhere easily by walk to Samseong Station. So this is the best choice of hotel that you should choose to stay next time.

Very classy hotel”

Rooms are large, F&B facilities and location

The hotel is in a very nice area, Gangnam, very close to great malls and below the hotel is a huge underground mall with lots of facilities and shops, etc. The hotel itself has many dining options. The rooms are nice size, very clean and the general service is good. The decor and design of the hotel is also very nice. One disadvantage is that it is quite far from downtown Seoul and to get to all the different tourist attractions, you would have to cross the river to the other side of Seoul. This can be a hassle but we found the travel ok except during peak hours. The concierge service can be better, the staff won't very enthusiastic about helping out with ideas, etc. It was efficient but not out of the way. Great stay, enjoyed it much and a very nice hotel.

Room Size, Staff and Location

Very good this time, I emailed the hotel ahead of my booking simply to let them know as I am staying for 8 days I would like certain things this time i.e. a room upgrade, free internet and also breakfast was thrown in but this was the deal online not down to the hotel, I arrived at the hotel and was greeted by the Manager this time as we have emailed back and forth simply to make sure that what I had asked for was arranged on arrival and not having to wait around considering I was spending over 2000 dollars on this stay, there is still work going on at the hotel and COEX, I got a room with a nice view, size was awesome, layout was fine, staff were friendly, now I went out for dinner with some friends and that evening we must have visited every branded hotel within 5-10KM by taxi as we did not want to eat in our hotel, what was interesting having done that 3 hour taxi ride from one hotel to the next I am really glad that I stayed at the Inter Conti, all the other hotels in my opinion were not good value for money, as we visited all the branded hotels, even food at the Conrad was simply so so, thus in the end it was room service, a lot of laughter and an all round good stay, I would without hesitation book the Inter Conti again as I like the location, Hyundai Dept Store for good on Level B1 and level 10, subway is close, taxi's are cheap compared to Japan and staff are nice, I will emailed ahead again and ask for a room upgrade, considering Seoul hotel prices I think you all should ask for free internet or an upgrade, Happy New Year Agodo Travellers

This is a great hotel. I stayed 3 nights here and really enjoyed myself. The room was new, fresh, and modern. I'd definitely stay at this hotel again. The Hyundai department store is right next door so you can grab some groceries or have a meal in the food court (cheap, good, and clean). The Coex mall is behind and there's lots to see. Also, there's a Kinkos right across the street in case you need to fax or print (24hrs). The Samseong station is to the left, and you can pretty much get anywhere in Seoul from that station (there are 9 lines with the Samseong station being on the central ring linking all of them - be prepared to walk). Can't wait to go again. The staff all speak fluent English as the clientele is mostly international.
