Reviewed 1 November 2012

Stayed there one week and was very pleased. Easy to bus (just down the block) and metro (Seoul Natl Univ of Education), room was very clean and spacious. Convenience of kitchenette, with washer/dryer. Staff was friendly and spoke some English. Lots of little restaurants in the back streets. No complaints, would go there again!

My grown daughter and I spent a week at this nice travelers hotel. The Individuals that worked the front desk spoke English well and were always helpful. This hotel sports a nice coffee/pastry cafe in the lobby and an Outback Steakhouse on the "B" level. This was great for me 'cause after 3 days of Korean food I needed a steak! There isn't really any need for a car in this area since within 3 blocks of the hotel you will find lots of local shops and restaurants as well as the entrance to the Seoul Metro and the nearest Airport Bus stop (not a bad walk as long as you don't have much luggage.). If you bring your car, there are just a couple of parking spots on the front sidewalk. Don't know if there is another parking lot nearby. Let's talk about the room. We were on the 9th floor with a view of the main road out front and had 2 twin beds which was perfect for the two of us gals. There was also a queen(?) size bed in the loft. Note- for a country of short people, staircases have steeper stairs than what we are used to in the US. You will have to scale a narrow & tall flight to access the loft bedroom but what fun for the adventurous! There was a small kitchenette that included a washing machine (most Asians don't use dryers, they save energy resources by hanging the clothes to dry and this would have been ok if there was a clothesline in the room. We used all the furniture and the loft railing to hang our clothes - embarrassing when housekeeping comes by. Oh well!). There was lots of closet and storage space in the room so it was easy to keep things in order. There was a nice size TV, viewable from the entire room, and the two twin beds sported firm mattresses. The room was very clean, well maintained and QUIET - we never heard people in the hallway or next door on on the street below. We loved our stay at the Provista!

We stayed here for seven nights. The hotel is clean, quiet and modern. Beds were comfortable. It was reasonably priced. The convenience of having a kitchenette and washing machine for a week long stay was very helpful especially after experiencing 40 degree C heat. It is close to the metro and the airport bus stop. Staff were very professional, helpful and accommodating. I had to contact them several times prior to our stay with questions and always received a positive and prompt reply. After a week of Kimchi, we started to crave some western food and just went downstairs to the Outback restaurant - across the road a Baskin Robbins. Several Convenience stores in the area that carry anything you might need. It's not close to the downtown/tourist area, but was a good location for us and great value.

I was staying at Provista Hotel for 3 nights. The room is quite nice for the price I paid. I got free wi-fi from the room, a gas stove for cooking if you want to, and the best part is a washer/dryer machine which is so convenient.

I had a hard time finding the hotel as Google map showed the wrong location. But if you are taking the metro, get off at exit #1at Seoul University of Education (not the Seoul University). Walk straight along the same main street after you exit. After passing the Standard & Chartered Bank, you will see the hotel on your right. There's a Provista cafe next to the hotel entrance as well.

Airport bus which leaves every 15-20 minutes at exit #3 and costs 15000 Won (around US$14) will take you directly to Incheon Airport.

The hotel is close to the metro but not quite close to the main shopping area. However, it's easy to take the metro everywhere. Just get a metro card similar to the Oyster card in London. Load it with some money and you are good to go. A tripis around 1000-1400 Won, depending on where you are going.

From the airport, you can take the express train to Seoul station (city center). It takes around 43 minutes.

I stayed here for 4 days with a couple friends who had lived in Seoul a few years earlier. It was booked based on the value and location, both of which the three of us considered quite good. My wife stayed here with 3 friends a year later and echoed our opinions. Quite a simple and pleasant place and served it's needs of providing a comfortable and safe place to sleep.

I traveled to South Korea in July 2011 with my parents for three weeks with the main purpose to visit my extended family around Seoul. To save money, I shared one of these apartment-style rooms with my parents so that I had my own sleeping space in the loft area. It was a little awkward at first (very steep stairs up to the loft area), but the hotel staff was friendly and accommodating to any of our requests. We found the kitchenette and laundry indispensable during our stay. We were so busy meeting up with family and friends that we had not seen in years, so having the ability to do our laundry and relax for a few minutes alone in our hotel was vital! We did not spend too much time in the hotel other than to sleep, but it was just what we needed.

I also had some friends and work colleagues in Seoul at the time and so the location of this hotel was quite convenient for meeting up with everyone. Just a couple of blocks from the metro, I found it remarkably easy to get around on my own. There is also a convenient store, pharmacy, and many coffee shops and other stores nearby for necessities.

Also free wi-fi, although some of the rooms did not get signal.

It was a moderately priced hotel and just what we needed for touch down space during our very active stay in Seoul.

Room Tip: If you have older kids or an extra adult traveling with you, the loft rooms are nice option.
