It's a nice hotel very close to the beach.
The breakfast was very interesting! You sat down and the waiter served you a plate with scrambled eggs, sausage, watermelon etc. and there were some toast and orange juice on the table. The waiter also served you some coffee.

Room tip: Very close to the beach

Positives: The hotel presents itself quite well. The room was spacious with a single and queen bed provided. The room had enough space to place our bags and backpacks – and still have plenty of floor space. The beds, while firm, were comfortable enough for a pleasant nights sleep. Two comfortable chairs and a table allowed room to sit and read etc.
The restaurant was a lovely space to sit, with lounges to one side around the window space, with dinner tables in the middle of the floor comfortably seating four adults. Meal costs – a moderate menu was available – came in at 10 000w or less.
Staff were quite polite and attentive, despite limited English. Maybe we should make the effort and learn a little more Korean.
Beach is easily accessible through an alley outside the back doorway of the hotel. A 7/11 is also nearby.

Negatives: While the cost of the hotel was a reasonable $80 / night, items such as tea and coffee making were not provided – no cups, spoons, tea, coffee etc. Strangely hot and cold water WAS available in the foyer of each floor. The bathroom has the usual amenities - shower, hand-basin and toilet / bidet. What was strange was that the wall separating the bathroom from the bedroom was made of glass – which meant if you didn’t pull the shower curtain across (yes, it was on the glass wall side, with glass on the other) you were in view whenever you used the bathroom! Other niggles were:
• INTERNET with a password which you weren’t told and couldn’t find out;
• TV where you had to experiment to sort out how the control worked;
• AIR CONDITIONER that could not be set (in most hotels these are controlled centrally and playing with the control is pointless). Unfortunately for most of us 25˚C was too warm – no air circulating.
• hot water – well, it was lukewarm in the morning AND evening - not hot!
• Bathroom starting to show age with some mould and patching on tiles.

Overall I was disappointed with this hotel. While only spending one night in Gangneung, I’m sure there would be better options in the area. Gangneung is a beautiful city, well set out and with plenty to see. Would definitely visit the area again.

Room tip: Try a motel. You get more value for money.

No english speaking. No amenities in the room. Breakfast started at 8 am. That meant that a gentleman walked into the restaurant from the street and without washing his hands started touching food. After 35 minutes one egg and a toast was served. Another 25 minutes for a cup of coffee. Avoid Gangneung if you can...but for sure avoid Benikea

I've stayed at this hotel five times over the past 6 months. Every room is well maintained, clean, and suitable for families / western tourists. Most of the staff speaks passing English and its right next to the beach. However, the "western" breakfast offered in the first floor is lacking. Only a few of the rooms have a view of the ocean. Its the best hotel in the area.

Stayed the Gyeongpo beach hotel during peak season of the summer holiday.

The beach is just 1 minute walk from hotel and the hotel is easy to access by car also.

There are several convenience stores around.

Room is clean but not spacious for family probably there are family rooms.
