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 staff do not speak english but were generally quite polite and friendly. The room size and faciltiies was definately worth it for the price.

We stayed there for a week and then for one night. Firstly, we had an upgraded room (which cost us around 5$ per night more than the standard room).

I'd stayed in Hotel benhur for 4 nights. The hotel location is OK for me because I spent one day in Yoido and Full Gospel Church. If your traveling locations were in the downtown areas, don't pick this one. It requires transfer most of times and it took about 10 mins boarding on the train. There are many restaurants/convenient stores... More

We stayed at Benhur hotel for a total of 5 nights. The staff speaks very little/no English, and so communicating is quite a puzzle if you don't speak Korean (luckily we do). They are very professional and the room was quite clean. However, we had asked for a non-smoking room, and it seems that the room was actually a smoking... More

Everything is fine there if you just need a normal residence for a while. There is internet in rooms, which is good, because you don't have to walk down to the internet room.

Staying in Yeoido

Neighbourhood Profile
Yeoido
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.
