                  Disappointing no breakfast. Gym was okay but an extra charge and not actually in the hotel itself. Room was dark and lack of lighting in the room wasnt ideal to complete work. Close to a starbucks and some good eateries. Location to COEX Convention Centre is good, a quick taxi ride for about 3 minutes.

                  Hotel's room started to be old ,worn out bit! But This Hotel had best art collection and location !!! All my minus impression gone away with all the beautiful collection. Best of best was 18th century chosun dynasty "White tiger Moon pottery" !!!! Felt so honored whenever take and off the elevator and passing by. Staff all seemed very peaceful . Better interfacing than Madarine Oriental hk.

                  Remember to get the spa coupon, 24 hour spa service is a godsend service. Note the spa service is 24/7 for men only, the sauna for women is located a black away from the hotel, but I imagine they have more going on there than the men's.

                  Very small bathroom and rigid check in check out time”

                  Generally the holel is acceptable but have the following to improve: 1) the size of the bathroom is extremely small, making it very difficult to get in and out of the bathroom. The swing door could be been replaced with sliding door to allow easy access. 2) 3pm check in time and 12 pm check out time. At 11am, I asked front desk to give me a late check out at 12:30pm so that I can go for a quick lunch. Strictly no was certainly a poor response for a 5 star hotel. I have never encountered such a hotel with rigid check out hour, 3) the free wifi was simply hopeless. It was extremely slow and impossible to use. Fortunately I have my prepaid SIM for mobile data.

                  Location, Price, Choice of Rooms

                  Stayed at the Hotel Prima again and still felt good. Located in Cheongdam Dong, which is a nice quiet place but many varieties of restaurants. Transportation is alright if you can walk few minutes to the subway when it's -5 degrees C. As usual, can buy toothbrush and other stuff at 24H concenience stores nearby. Good for business trip but probably not for family.

                  Even though I booked for a room with two twin beds, it had one queen and one twin. So it was very comfortable to sleep. And the room was a lot bigger than I expected. Also the hotel was very quiet. And lunch buffet on the third floor was reasonaly priced and had lots of delicious food.

                  Misleading stars and pictures for a solo traveler”

                  I checked out the pictures and read some reviews, but this hotel is totally misleading. It is NOT a 5 star hotel. First, this hotel use to be a smoking hotel and the smell still lingers. It's not a smoking hotel now, but you can smell it. The standard double room is so small/space inside is not up to date like many modern hotels. There is no closet space. The hotel is in Cheongdam, great area, but if you are visiting korea, it's better to stay in a more convenient location. Something right next to Subway would be easier for travelers. Wifi in hotel was intermittent. Unless this hotel is a really cheap price, i'd suggest finding some newer/modern hotels in busier parts of Seoul. The location is not friendly for first time visitors to Korea.

                  Good location in Gangnam, with restaurants and coffee shops around the corner. Convenient to go to COEX exhibition center as well as the shuttle bus to the airport.

                  The hotel was quiet and clean. The only thing I could find bad was the size of the toilet, but I assume that it was because I stayed in a cheap room. I'm totally satisfied!

                  Great location if you works in Gangnam”

                  It is right beside bus station, and the bus station named “Prima Hotel”, with direct connection to airport. There are convenient stores nearby with some restaurants too. It is quite perfect for people who has business trip at Gangnam area. For traveler, it is better to stay in hong dae area which is more happening.

                  This is a very nice hotel for the money... no complaints except that windows are not very insulated so you can hear the noise of music and outside traffic. but its very clean, food is good, staff very helpful.

                  Sudden drop in room quality”

                  I must've been upgraded last time but definitely not a good experience. Room was very small. No sunlight. Wooden floor made it feel like a crappy motel. I recommend booking one level higher (despite higher pricing)

                  awful choice”

                  I thought the hotel was going to be a quality one based on some of the comments here but I ended up having huge disappointment. First, the hotel was fairly far from Cheondam station, not to mention that the route itself is not an easy one to find. The hotel staff were a bit cold and unfriendly, but to be fair I've seen worse so I'm not complaining in that respect. The hotel's ambiance, though, was not pleasant. It was big, empty and extremely dark. When I got to the 9/F, on which my room was located, there was a very strong smell. It felt almost like the something was on fire. That smell lasted for a good period of time and was horrible. The room's condition was OK and clean enough. It was good that they provided body washing products. However, overall speaking, this hotel has disappointed me a lot. I can even say it's worse than a lot of motels in Korea which only take half as much as the price here. I definitely won't be returning and I hope my review gets shared with everyone who is considering this hotel.

                  Clean, many restaurants and convenience stores around the hotel, fast laundry and very friendly/helpful staffs

                  Great stay, would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area. Everything was perfect, but the only little issue was that the water temperature of the shower was not really stable, but that wouldn't annoy me if I were to travel during summer.

                  Decent Hotel in Gangnam”

                  Location, Clean & 24-hrs Spa

                  Am not familiar with Seoul, thus, accept the recommendation of this hotel by my local customer, for a hotel in Gangnam area, the price is reasonable vs its location.. but the hotel is a little old, the room is ok in size but nothing much else to comment.. This hotel is famous for its Spa.. 24 hours service with full spa & sauna facilities, which is nice, 90min oil massage is 110K won, guess reasonable for this country.. The hotel staff is helpful.. definitely an option for my next visit, though wish to explore others..

                  Interesting and quiet”

                  Big room , nice but small lobby and good location

                  The stay was good . The room was big but housekeeping staff is not so attentive and forgot on the amenities . However, they are quick to response. The coffee house closes early and be prepared for some standby food just in case if you are hungry in the middle of the night . Staff were friendly despite little spoken English .
