I would like to give some information about my recent stay at Benhur Hotel in Seoul, Korea. I made the booking online through asiarooms.com and thought I was staying at a Hotel, but it was actually a Motel. There was internet facility but it was very slow that it could hardly even be used. The bed in the room had no sheets on the matteress, it only had a matteress protector and a quilt. Under the bed was extremely dirty, there was coffee cups and hot water but no milk was supplied and no sugar was suplied, just coffee and cups. The staff didn't understand or speak english, there were no clothes washing facilities and being an Asthmatic the room and the Motel only supply smoking rooms, the room was cleaned only 3 times during my 7 night stay, if I had known any of these factors I would not have chosen this place to stay and the fact that it is being advertised as a Hotel and not a Motel is very misleading. I was extremely disappointed with the service and cleanliness, and would not recommend this place to anyone, also I will think twice about booking a room through asiarooms for my next International trip. It was very over priced for the location and quality. I would have preferred staying somewhere else even if it had costed me a little extra. The mattress was hard and not comfortable at all.

Room Tip: Book a different place to stay. This place may have been good when it was new but it is old and not very well looked after or upkept.

Convenient location, it's near the subway, plenty of food in the area and it's near some of the attractions.

And it goes downhill from here.

This is more motel than hotel. The bathroom stunk. There isn't a separate shower, so you have to shower standing in the bathtub which doesn't drain very well. No closet space or drawers to stow your clothes and items. Room was very small, there was hardly any space left to walk once the luggage was open.

The receptionist was the "concierge" and also the security & valet. His english was very limited which made the communication difficult.
