My wife and I had originally booked an apartment through Air BnB for our stay in Seoul. Our "gracious" host emailed us the night before we left to cancel our booking.

Given that I am a Platinum member with the brand, I expected a little bit more than what I was given. When I arrived for an early check-in (at about 9am), I did not expect that I could check in but tried anyway. The check-in agent first scorned that my room will not be ready until "er.... 12pm", at the...

The hotel is under remodeling and just has one restaurant left for dining. The elevator can not get to the room from ground floor. With the pricing paid, the value we get is very minimal. The remodeling will not be done shortly.

Staying in Samseongdong / COEX

Neighbourhood Profile
Samseongdong / COEX
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.
