Stay two nights (1st-3rd Oct) at Benikea Hotel. The location is away from Gwangju old historical city center which can be reached by one of the metro train located near the hotel. The hotel room are big but facilities are getting old with noisy air condition and difficult to operate old bath tub. Breakfast food choices are very limited and... More

I can't believe some people have given good reviews of this hotel. Have they slept in A ROOM WITHOUT WINDOWS? I did. Have they noticed that the carpets are filthy and the rooms are not vacuumed? I did. Did they get towels everyday? I didn't. Did they notice that the door cannot open unless you press a button operating with... More

Most of the rooms have no window. Service is terrible, breakfast awful, and the staff does not speak any English. Ambiance is that of an Asian horror movie (and this is the most positive aspect of the place). A friend described his experience as a mix of The Blair Which and Twylight Zone. All in Corean with no subtitles.

There are some 'western' hotels in Gwangju such as the Ramada or the Holiday Inn but this is a more interesting and cost effective choice. The hotel has a lot of marble and dark wood in both the lobby and the rooms. The desk staff are very helpful. They don't always speak English well, but use a phone translation service... More

I didn't know what to expect as I didn't know which hotel I was staying in Gwangju until when I almost got to the area. I drove from the Incheon Airport to Gwangju straight off my flight so I was pretty exhausted from the drive. I honestly did not know what to expect and the only thing I knew was... More

The room was large, quiet,clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable. On arrival we greeted by a receptionist who could speak a little English and we were able to understand each other with some signs and drawings. We stayed 3 nights and had no conplaints.

During my business trip, I always stay in this excellent hotel although it is usually one night stay. The double bed room is immaculate and worth every dollar you pay. I especially like the quietness of the room although it is located in the middle of a busy nightlife area. Two thumbs up!!!!

I stayed here during the 2011 Korean F1 Grand Prix in October. It wasn't where I was expecting to stay as I got 'upgraded' whilst en-route from Seoul. The staff were as helpful as they could possibly be given the immense language barrier - I don't speak Korean, they don't speak English. We muddled through with a mixture of drawings... More
