              Stayed 9 nights in September 2011

              Comfortable stay in a convenient location”

              Convenient location, close next to Apgujeong, Cheongdam, Coex

              First night I arrived, they were full house, so the room they gave me was not so great i.e. window faced a wall, and the furniture was old/repainted which was also chipped, TV was the old type CRT. I requested to change to a different room the 3rd night, and they gave me a much better room. View was open and furniture was much newer, with LCD TV. No signs of being a love hotel for both the new and old room, which was good. Heard they are known for their sauna, which is attached to the hotel, but didn't try. Staff was helpful and provided the info I needed, but overall felt a little bit cold. Location is convenient, walkable distance to Apgujeong (Rodeo Road) which is the most posh neighborhood in Seoul now, also walkable to Cheongdam station (about 10 min walk), COEX is only 3 bus stops away (bus ride is 1000 krw) and they come frequently. Best part is the hotel coach stops right in front of Prima Hotel if you take 6010 route. The other hotel it stops right in front of is Hotel Riviera. I don't really have a point of reference to compare to as I have only stayed in one hotel in Seoul. But overall, I feel it was a decent stay, clean, properly run hotel, but not really 4 star, but given the convenient location, still worth the price.

              comfortable stay at a reasonable price”

              convenient location, clean and classy atmosphere (especially the entrance and lobby), a high-end hotel for mid-range prices

              So, I didn't actually stay at the Prima Hotel. I live in Korea and booked it for my parents who were visiting from the United States. But they were quite happy with their stay. I chose the Prima mostly because of it's location. It's close to my apartment, and also offers easy access to Incheon Airport--the 6006 Airport Express Bus (big comfy seats, plenty of room for luggage) stops right in front of it. The standard rooms are not spacious, but clean and comfortable. The lobby is especially impressive--it feels like a luxury hotel, which I suppose it is, but for around $130 a night in one of the most upscale neighborhoods in Seoul,it was classier than I expected. The staff spoke English well enough that my parents, who don't speak a word of Korean, could communicate with them effectively. The Prima Hotel is located a couple hundred meters from the Han River Park, about a kilometer from Apgujeong Rodeo Street, and a kilometer or two from Coex. All of these are in easy walking distance, but people unfamiliar with the area might have trouble making these walks on their own, because it requires crossing busy streets and, sometimes, finding overpasses or underpasses. It's easy to find a taxi right outside the lobby, but the hotel is a bit far from the nearest subway station--the walk includes a hill and took me about 10 minutes at a fairly brisk pace. In short, it may not be the best fit for all travelers, but was certainly the right fit for my purposes. The next time my friends or family visit me in Seoul, I'll probably have them stay there again.

              Central, clean, very courteous, good food and value for money
              Small rooms but comfortable, bathroom very small, but lots of water and good shower

              I was met by two porters who did not let me do a thing and took charge of luggage and escorting me to the front desk. Service was very rapid, courteous and in English from well groomed and beautiful Korean ladies. The porter took my bags and escorted me to a small but clean and comforatble room overlooking the front street. The hotel is relatively central within walking distance to the COEX mall, one of the largest in Seoul and an area of restaurants and night life. Dowmtown Seoul is a long way from the airport, about US$65-75 by taxi, but worth the trip. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and I will return.

              I can't think any.

              The Prima hotel was very clean and the people were very kind and polite. They helped me with taxis and directions. I recommend the hotel to anyone. Located in the center of the city, getting to different locations is easy using taxis, bus, and the metro, all located close by.

              finding a decently priced hotel in seoul that is not a love motel is almost impossible. no idea why that is. even the $300 a night big brand hotels are not up to standard. this was a decent hotel although the rooms were hell of old (maybe last refurbed in the 1970s). there were so many white stains on the old, nasty rug i was kind of creeped out. on the good side, everyone was really nice. the spa was also nice and only $9 for hotel guests - 3 mineral hot tubs, cold plunge, 2 sauanas, and a steam room. also, for a major city, the breakfast buffet was decently priced and not bad. not great, but for seoul a good option.

              Rooms are relavitely big, and are supplied with laptop computers which was a nice surprise. Features are steam room and several indoor hot springs which are well priced, and the majority of the staff are fluent in English and Japanese. Station is not too far away, and lots of restaurants and bars right infront of the hotel.

              The hotel is located in the business district of Seoul, which there being lots of restaurants specializing in local and international cuisine there by. The staff are very friendly, with the majority speaking various languages, making it very to communicate and checking in and out was very simple as all the staff were very efficient and pleasant. We had two blackouts in the room which was a bit of a surprise, however the staff were very understanding and attending to the problem immediately. Make sure you bring the your tooth brush and tooth paste as its not provided. Overall great value for money, nice location, very clean and big rooms, and would stay there again if I ever go back to Seoul.

              Easy access to public transports , spacious room and clean.

              It is a pleasant stay at Prima Hotel. But I have to take taxi/MRT for halal restaurants in Itaewon, happening shopping areas such as Namdaemum market and other attractions.

              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..

              Prima Hotel - Short stay”

              Courteous English speaking staff. Lobby, room, and grounds are visually appealing. Non-smoking rooms are available.
              Room was cramped. No real A/C only - fan and temperature control (which did not seem to work). An obscure way to control certain lights was via buttons located on a control box next to the phone. No complimentary shampoo or conditioner in the room. The bed was extremely firm and unconfortable for me.

              I expected more comfort from a mid to high end hotel in Seoul. This was my first visit to South Korea, and I am probably just not accustomed to the differences between the accommodations in U.S. and the Far East. For my needs, the room was unsatisfactory, due issues regarding the temperature and air flow controls available. To deal with this, I had to keep the window open which would normally be okay, but the outside weather was very cold, stormy and windy during my stay in Seoul, and so it was difficult to find a reasonable compromise.

              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.

              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.
