The rooms are clean but badly in need of renovation. The furniture is appropriate for a preschool. Maid service is... sporadic. Breakfast is minimal. There seems to be one person (total, across the whole week) who speaks more than minimal English (and this matters unless you're Korean is much better than mine).

We booked a 2-single-bed room. The room was small. Asked to change to a bigger one. Got charged 50,000 KRW extra per day. Not enough lighting in the room. Staff was not very helpful, not sure whether it's because of their limitation in English. Asked them to help book a taxi. They couldn't get through to the taxi company but... More

If you like modern design and chick, you are at the correct place. It is close to Gangnam and has a pleasant atmosphere. Actually more a business hotel, but we staid for 2 night there during our leasure stay. It is very new build, one year ago or so, so everything still new.

I have now stayed in The Designers Hotel Samseong twice and have been very happy both times. Check in was quick and easy. Lifts are faster than some others I have experienced in the area (Hotel Peyto). The staff are very helpful and efficient and I love the fact that I get a walk through local streets on the way...

This was my first stay and I have to admit I liked the quirky decor of the room and found the bed really comfortable with a good breakfast. Some of the staff had limited English but I somehow managed to get the message across which it made it all the more fun with arm waving sign language although the front... More

I was looking for a not-so-expensive hotel because I was going to attend a conference at the nearby Coex. The hotels adjacent to Coex are expensive so I had to look farther out. It was a daily 10-15 minute walk through safe streets in a generally business neighbourhood. Many surrounding restaurants. I got the room that is pictured in their... More

Good location in Gangnam only 10 minutes from subway stations Samseong or Seolleung so easy to get to the centre of Seoul. The room was clean and quiet. I never saw any other rooms so I can't comment on the design. Staff speak OK English. Only two issues: the wifi in the room was unreliable so I had to use... More

This hotel looks boutique and fun on the website but was dirty and worn down. I stayed in a room that had a smelly couch and stained (pix attached) walls. The AC was broken and when I called to check two days into my stay (my first two nights were packed with meetings, didn't bother to check, I thought the... More

Here is an unsual hotel, with an unique decoration, friendly staff and very well locared. Each room has a theme, it's a quite place with good breakfast, nearby restaurants and near Coex. It's open 24 hours and for those, like me who deal with jetlag, that is a plus as I could walk in the evening and enter at anytime

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.
