Third time to stay here for convenient location. National assembly, subway station, and the Han River (park) are nearby. Several eateries although difficult to order with language barrier. The room is large with a regular sized couch. A room with a third bed does not have a couch and the tub is smaller. The bathroom is large with a large... More

I arrived late due to travelling from Daegu after work. After taking my credit card from me, I was then told that they did not want it and would only accept cash. Which I then had to walk back to the subway station to draw the cash. The room smelt like smoke, after I asked for a non-smoking room. This... More

Located on the south of Han river. 5 minutes walk to the lovely Han river side enjoy the laser show on the water or people watching. A business district where you can see lots of drunk office men late. 15 minutes on taxi costed me 9000 won to go to fun bar area 이 대 원

Stayed at Benhur for two nights at end of Korea trip. Room was good size and toiletries were fantastic when running low of our own. Good location nr underground and staff friendly. Room was light with bleached floor boards and sauna in Bathroom - think it might have been the nicest on the floor. Not deluxe but good for price.

This place is bearable if you don't have many options or need to save on cost (hotels in Korea are notoriously overpriced). The rooms are big, but slightly old. The air-conditioning didn't work well (not very cool and lots of dripping water). There are lots of bars around and the hotel serves as a final stop for some on the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Benhur in Seoul on 2 occasions in May, the second time we had received an upgrade. The hotel is located close to the first drop off point (the Lexington Hotel) of the bus from Incheon Airport – turn right when you get off the bus, then left, then left. The bus trip takes around an... More

The bed was a bit hard, but did not give any back problems, both tv and bathroom was huge! The bubble bath did not work, and there was also a steam suana (which we didnt... More

Staying in Yeoido

Neighborhood Profile
Along with Gangnam and Samseongdong, Yeoido completes the trifecta of Seoul’s three main business districts. Steel and glass towers are the most visible sights, reflecting Yeoido’s general association as a business hub. But Yeoido is also where Korea’s laws are debated and enacted by Korea’s legislators within the iconic National Assembly Building. For an escape from urban life, the Yeouido Hangang Park is one of the most popular parks along the Han River for Seoulites. Each spring, cherry blossom trees go into full bloom and the sight of the rows of pink trees and cherry blossom petals blowing in the air is a magical one that shouldn’t be missed if your timing is right.
