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 weekends. That said it was cheap and available. Try to book early elsewhere in the city. There are better options.

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 hour and costs 15000 won (around $15) per person. There are plenty of restaurants and shops close by, we found Dr Robbins (across the road) had great healthy food and reasonably priced and English menus. The rooms were a good size for two and had a sauna room in the shower area. The doors to the room open outward (seems to be a Korean thing to do). The staff spoke a limited amount of English but really tried to help as much as they could. Breakfast is available but don’t expect much variety. The subway (with an escalator) is about 10 mins away and from there is easy to get around – get a Metro card if you are travelling on the subway for a day or more . ATM’s and a laundry, where you can get clothes washed or pressed, are about 5 mins away. We would stay again and would recommend the hotel.

The staff do not speak english but were generally quite polite and friendly. The room size and faciltiies was definately worth it for the price. 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 try). This hotel is very near to the National assembly station (Not Yeouido!) Can take a taxi to 63 city (cost about 3-4 USD). On sunny days, one can take a walk to 63city through the park, which is very nice during cherry blossom period! The breakfast was not fantastic though.

I stayed there for 2 nights. The room was standard size but the bathroom was huge with bathtub and sauna room. There were everything you need in bathroom (shampoo, conditioner, body wash and even facial cleanser, aftershave) There was also a computer with internet. The breakfast was good. There was selection of Korean and western food but the breakfast area was too small to serve all the hotel guests in the same time. The location of the hotel was good because it's close to underground station. It's just 3 stations aways from Hongik University station where you can explore the night life and shopping street. Also, there were convenience stores, cafe, bekery and restaurant nearby. Good place to stay with reasonable price.
