Nice location, there was enough variety for breakfast, and the staff were friendly. If you want a microwave though, it's a 5,500W rental per night.
Quite old but good”
Near by subway 1 station apart from Gangnam station
this hotel sucks!!! my flight to korea was cancelled and i was unable to even check in and the hotel just took the entire room fare which i had prepaid. even better, what they offered me was to book again for the following night haha. like im really going to stay in the hotel that just stole my money. cheap crooks did that just for 80 bucks. i was planning on staying 5 nights. hope it was worth it? mr kim the front desk manager is a thief! dishonest crooks!
good hotel ”
comforting hotel for business traveller. abit far from city centre though
Definitly not suitable for gals! ”
Location is great but there are stinky smells in the room which you can smell it when you just open the door. The room looks dirty and old, we don't want to stay inside at all because of its condition. The staff is helpful tho and showed us another room after we expressed our concerns, but nothing better and basically the same. Then we tried to cancel the booking and it took us so long to get it done and we stayed in a coffee shop nearby as we really don't want to stay in the room and the cafe opposite to the reception doesn't allow us to stay as it's going to be closed. After all these hassles, we finally checked out right after we confirmed the cancellation like few hours after checked in but we still have to pay for the 1st night. Thanks for the help from Agoda CS hotline, they are very responsive and helpful. Luckily, we can get a last minute booking from Airbnb for a small apartment nearby In a cheaper rate to save us being homeless. What a terrible start of my trip!
An old hotel, most of the things are almost broken. The management really need to consider refurbish the place. Anyway, the location is good.
Convenient location for my needs
The space is enought and service is excellent. Actually I cannot find any weak point about this hotel. Everything is excellent.
It has everything you would need inside the room!
Really nice room”
I really like the room. It had a small kitchen and was the size of a small apartment. It even had an extra level. There isn't too much in the area, but this meant the room was very quiet. The bed was so comfortable and I had an incredible night's sleep.
Visiting son who teaches English in jeonju”
Very convenient for our needs; close to express and intercity bus stations and airport bus drops you off within a block of the hotel; staff very friendly and helpful-great Korean BBQ restaurant right across the street; more smaller dining places behind hotel
Front desk people are very poor professional”
Parking lot attendant were not friendly. Also they were not nice to my visitors
Very good location but furniture very old and dirty rooms”
There were hair everywhere, dried pee on the toilet ring, furniture was old and mostly broken, changed room twice, finally left for another hotel. Dead mosquitos on window (on the inside) which means they havent cleaned them since summer as its now -7C and no mosquitoes are alive.
It was awful ”
They didn't even have sugar for coffee. They suggested me to go out and buy by myself.
recommed this hotel for friends and relatives”
The breakfast is very good!
We booked 2 nights with drinks and they never deliver it during our check in until we have to ask for it. They gave us 2 coupon of free americano coffee for 2 from the cafe beside the lobby. We were there earlier before the check in time, if they have gave us the coupon then we were not pay for our coffee while waiting at the cafe. The room is spacious but it was old in a way. Loved the wooden floor with heater. You can find many restaurants and shops nearby but it is still a bit far away from most of the attractions and sightseeings places.
Wouldn't recommend unless location is most important ”
Bed is hard, floor dusty. Do not provide detergent for washing machine, have to buy a box of 700g detergent for one wash. Housekeeper did not do a thorough job. Cups in sink are not washed.
I like this hotel because of good location, unique facilities, friendly environment, and good value for price. Recently, however, I noticed that rooms are not as clean as before.
Great once again”
Wonderful stay once again. Highly recommend.
Great for a family with a toddler. Clean, nice, and very spacious! Our new go to hotel when were in gangnam.
Good location and sleep well
everything is great!”
First time user”
The hotel was really nice and convenient for me.
Room was very nice, but had a strong food smell that didn't go away all week. Staff was very friendly and they usually had at least one person that spoke English at the front desk.
Location & price
Stay in Provista”
An excellent hotel for its price
Location, helpful staffs are very good.
Good location, expensive laundry”
+ good Location + all necessary services provided - Laundry was so expensive, I thought one "0" was too much. I almost could by new stuff for that price ( 2 socks, 2 pants , 1 short = 25 US$)
Very good Location ”
It's very close to subway and easy to get the airport bus. Staff is helpful and there are many restaurants around the hotel.
Great Location, spacious room”
Its a great stay with the hotel, good location, huge room, big bed and friendly staff. The only thing to improve is this hotel do not have aircond during my stay. They advise me to open the windows instead. Which is abit noisy to hear the car, bus or even truck passing away the hotel in the night.
One of best choice”
We stayed for 2weeks, the family room was spacious and clean, we were satisfied.
Value for Money and good location”
Booked a bit bigger room though, finally they arranged a bit smaller one.
Not satisfied no wifi. No toothbrush ”
In Korea, usually hotels are good value of money. Provista is just very so so hotel. Staff English and attitude was not bad but neither good. Not a pleasant check in experience. The hotel had no wifi!!or you need to pay for it. The hotel in general is spacous but old in a way. The most frustrating one is, they do not provide toothbrush and toothpaste. If need, you need to buy from convenience store near by or go to their front desk to buy 2000won per set. I did not see it coming really. Even, if you are willing to buy, they won't send it to your room. Go get by yourself.;-/ And why I am not satisfied is, the staff can hang your phone up in the middle of conversation because someone came to the front desk. Over all, although the location is ok near the subway station. But there are far too much choice in Korea under this price. Originally I was going to stay for 6 nights, at last I cancel the following 5 days.changed to another one . But those appreciate Agoda helped me to talk to hem. And also glad that the hotel are willing to cancel. So...what you say?
We enjoyed our stay at the Provista Hotel in Gangnam. It was difficult to find breakfast and coffee in the morning; the earliest bakery opened at 7:30 a.m. There is a McDonald's about a block away where I was able to get coffee until we could go to breakfast. Overall we would stay again.
great rate, great location, good service”
Booked at the last minute due to an extension of my stay in Seoul. Booked this due to proximity to Gangnam. Room is large and has a 2nd mini floor where there is an extra bed for a 3rd/4th person. Located half way between Gangnam and Seoul National Education subway stops. Great value. Will likely stay again, if the rates were as great as they were this time around.
Nice hotel for value”
It has a small kitchen and we could cook in the hotel room, which is unique for this hotel.
Would not rush back”
Room 905 had a mezzanine with steep steps which was not great for a 3 year old. The mezzanine was very low. If i was on my knees my head just missed the ceiling There was a stained mattress up there but not made as a bed. The room was clean but dusty, maybe it had not been occupied for a while. Its in a business area so there was nothing to do close by. We were there for a medical appointment so chose this hotel as it was close. We did get the subway to lotte world which is 20 mins away on line 2. There were many restaurants close by offering a variety if food. Breakfast was ok.
Very good stay”
Close to subway station, good location, clean
Good location, near to sub-way and bus station”
Ordinary Breakfast, with limited food.
This hotel is very convenient because it has sink and stove. I also like wooden floor.
Stay in Korea”
I thought the hotel had a great location and okay accommodations. The rooms were a little hot in the winter, which was somewhat helped by opening the windows. We had a problem with one staff member, but the management was very responsive and addressed the issue. The breakfast is good, not great.
Good for Biz traveller. 10min walk to Samsung town”
It's been many times already and I'll return for this price.
