Summary of the Blog Post

Here’s my review of a one-night staycation at the Oakwood Premier COEX Center in Gangnam, Seoul.

Oakwood Premier Coex Center is located right next to COEX, making it easy to access various local amenities and facilities on foot. I stayed in a three-bedroom superior room which had three rooms and two bathrooms – perfect for group stays! The interior design was dark yet cozy and inviting.

The kitchen was fully equipped with cooking utensils just like a home-stay accommodation; there were also various appliances such as a large refrigerator, oven, mixer etc available for use during the stay! As for the bathrooms – one main bathroom with separate toilet and shower facilities and another simpler bathroom with basic amenities were provided; laundry facilities were also well prepared within the suite.
