“Good Hotel with Great Location”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

re for the weekend when I was visiting Korea with my GF.

Caught the Shuttle from Incheon airport, as with all Asian transport it had air con and nice big seats.

Checking in was easy, they said we had been upgraded. Our room had a double bed and also a double mattress upstairs, it had no bed covers though and when we asked for some as we had a guest they said it would cost 27,000 won per night. We refused lol. The area upstairs its pretty small, you cant stand up in it. But just like we found its good if you have a friend who wants to crash there.

Usual cons in the room – nice shower, Asian style toilet, air con, free wifi. TV showed some Western TV channels such as BBC America with Korean subtitles.

Quite a big room for Asia with a sofa and coffee table in the room too, even had a washing machine and kitchen area. I have been told that many Koreans stay live in rooms like this.

Location is pretty good with the subway only being a few yards from where the hotel is. The hotel restaurant is very nice, love the club sandwich

Overall no probs with the hotel and I would stay here again, great location for travelling around Seoul.

Being vegetarian in Korea became easy with Provista's great apartment style rooms. They have a nice kitchen with pots and pans so you can cook.
Grocery store and pharmacy bang opposite the hotel. Every 5 th shop is a coffee shop. Busy street with subway Metro at 0.5 kms and airport shuttle bus at 0.25 kms.

Nice coffee shop in the hotel and two restaurants. Not too far from Gangnam Station.

Only thing missing in the room is a microwave.

We were in Seoul for a few days in May 2013.
We stayed at the Provista hotel. The place is more of a residence than a hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, however not all of them spoke fluent English so make sure you're patient. The bedroom we stayed in was spacious, with a king size bed, a kitchenette with washer/dryer. We had a second tiny second floor, where you couldn't really stand up with a mattress we haven't used (not sure how it would help anyone but I guess it is worth mentioning). Cleanliness was a bit if an issue especially in the kitchen, let's say the room was superficially clean, the bed was made, the towels were changed and the bathroom cleaned however you could see dust on some furniture, stains on the stove and doors and mold in the shower corners.
We tried the restaurant, it was not bad but it was not unforgettable either.
We stayed in better hotels for that price.

The pros: close to metro station, good spot in Seoul, friendly staff.
The cons: cleanliness

Very nice hotel, good location, but the service of the staff was poor, very rare to see this kind of service in Seoul,
I ask for directions for Koex Convention Center and the answer was, "I don't know".
Koex, is one of the most important building in Seoul......!
In my 3 day in this hotel, this kind of service was repeted with all other member of the group...... the arrogance and the careless atititud of the staff

Nice neat and tidy hotel conviently located and reasonably priced with free membership to the well equipped public gym...well recommend. Only gripe, could be cleaner....a lot of dust and an old biscuit under the bed...need to clean under the beds and under the toilet seat as well.

From the airport, we took a public bus directly to the seocho gu area, Only 5minute walking distance from the bus stop you are already infront of the hotel`s door,

The room was spacious and comes with a household equipment like a small kitchen and washing machine which is not common in our country :)

We enjoy the room and the breakfast, though they only serve a limited variation but it was still ok.

Overall it was a nice and clean hotel, quite easy to reach the subway station and easy to get bus . taxi ( if you really2 in a rush...).

Good Point) There is a wash and dry machine in a room.
Bad Points) Only Shower No Bath is available. No Shower Toilet.
The most regrettable point is, Not enough trained staffs. I.e. When they got into the lift from 2nd floor as last, they got it out first, faster than the customers. They won't keep door open at all. The front door situation is exactly same. No Customer First. At the breakfast, even the customer is eating, they took the plate withtout asking, when the time is close to close. During the customer is taking a coffee from the counter, they clean customer's table up and set the knife and folk up for new customer. It means, they do not see, take care, who is sitting where.
