I stayed in Benikea flower hotel for 14 nights in Nov 2015. My experience with it was more than good and I would definitely go there again.
Very good location on a main street, bus stop across the road , train station (cheongyangni) 8 minutes walk , this station is about 4-7 stations away from all the main stations in seoul , so with the great subway network in Seoul , you will be anywhere you want from the hotel in 40 mins maximum.
Rooms and Service :
rooms are very clean and beds are comfy , the size of the rooms is a bit small but not too small. if you can get one of the suites on the ground level there size is enormous like REALLY big. The reception is very helpful and willing to do anything to make your trip easier , they speak little English but communication can be done. you can change currency from the reception and remember to ask for an Umbrella if its rainy.The free wifi in all rooms is a very good thing too.
Around the hotel :
The best thing about Benikea is the surroundings, down the street (5 mins walk towards the train station ) North face , Adidas and Reebok stores plus tens of different clothes shop and at the train station one of the biggest department stores chains in Korea (LOTTE).
Unlimited food and coffee options around the hotel , best Korean BBQ ever is straight across the hotel ($9 all you can eat with great quality), 2 very god japanese food places beside the korean BBQ and a very good bakery for breakfast and snacks (but awful coffee)
on the same side of the hotel 2 mins walk towards the subway station is a a nice french bakery and coffee-shop (very Parisian design) you have to try this place , it has the best coffe ever , great bakeries , awesome dessert and great service , its definetly one of the best coffee-shops I have been to during my time in Seoul.
Across the road , 1 min walk walking the opposiyte way from the subway is a very nice pub called (SOERA) very friendly staff , great snacks, munchies and draft beer.
