“Small room but convenient !”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

We stayed in Double Deluxe room for 2 nights in this hotel in Apr 2013. The room style does not match with the photos shown in the website. The room is small with street view. The lobby looks like a 3-star hotel, receptionist is not friendly. However, the location is convenient. You can take airbus directly from the airport to this hotel nearby.

Stay in the deluxe garden terrace room for 4 nights. Room was pretty small but fortunately this room come with a big terrace that enable us to put our luggages and shopping stuffs. Hotel is about 10 mins walk to Dong Da Men shopping belt which close @ 2 to 3am, good for those who like shopping. There is a underground tunnel just outside the hotel that link to the train station, this help to shield us from snow,rain,wind and scorching sun.

Located in the middle of the road between Dongdaemun Market & Mingdong where you will find easy transport between these two famous shopping areas.
There’s a limousine route from the airport which stop right at the corner where the hotel is. Despite the room is quite small but however the convenient transportation and room rate added up its overall C/P.

I try to be more direct on my comment so that travelers are easiler to understand:
Bad points:
There are a lot of hardwares stores near the hotel, you feel like that you were in the wrong place in the begining.
Our room door is opening outside therefore you have to make sure that you are not blocking other people passage.
The mini fridge was smell badly, we were not using it at all.
The light switch,TV and air condition are all in one remote control. It took a while to learn how to use it.
The toilet, bath and shower are occupied one third of the room. It doesn't make a lot of sense.
WiFi is very weak in the room and the computer is not fast enough for 2012.
The shower gel & shampoo are not so good quality seem to be watery.
Air condtion are not quiet and seem to be on a funny location.
I was not asked if I wanted a smoking room but offered one!
Good points:
The bed is large and comfortable, we often get a good night sleep.
TV offer quite new movies in a few channels, good.
If you can walk 10-30 minutes, this hotel location is perfect to go a lot of locations.
The staffs are very helpful in terms of translation from Korean to English.
I don't think that I will be back to this hotel but the staffs are great overall.

The location of the hotel is fine, it is located between the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Metro station and the Euljiro 4(sa)-ga Metro station, you have to walk about 10 min to the former one and about 5 min to the latter one. Since the Dongdaemun shopping area is close to the former station, it would be quite harsh for you to walk back to the hotel if you have bought a lot of things from the shopping area.

We have a terrace twin room this time which could accomodate 3 people. The room is spacious. There is a double bed and a single bed, a sofa and a small side table. There is also a about 100 sq. feet space next door with a large window where you can enjoy the view of the Seoul Tower. (But I can't think of the purpose of this room)

There is no door to the washroom. Inside the washroom, there are 2 glass partitions separating the toilet and shower area. Outside the partitions are 2 washing basins and a bath, but again, no door/ partition separating the bath and the basins. (I think not everyone can accept having a bath while there is another person using the washing basin just besides you?)

Anyway, the room is clean and functional, the water pressure is enough and the hotel water supply is steady.

A plus point is there is a desktop inside the room with internet access. However, the desktop is quite slow and easy to "hang". I found that many software installed by other travellers are still there, which may be the reason why the desktop runs slowly and this makes me worry if the computer is infected by virus. There are also WIFI access in the room but is very very slow, I could hardly upload a photo from my IPhone to FB!

Anyway, the staff are helpful.

Well, not really recommend this hotel as it is quite expensive. While there are plenty of hotels near the area, you should have better choices with this budget.

Reviewed 5 July 2012

We travelled to Seoul in early July 2012 and were recommended this hotel by our travel agent. Normally we do our own research and book ourselves but due to the time frame we trusted the agent.
Now we were not expecting anything exciting but a hotel that we can live for a three days and have no troubles or difficulties and that’s what we got.

The Acacia is located about 5 – 10 mins walk to a large Dongdaemon area which house 3 – 4 large shopping centres and a very long street market that you can buy anything from phone covers, trainers and bags.
The train station is just a stones throw away from the hotel but the train system in Korea is anything but simple I guess it helped a little with English but with no directional pointers it’s does take a while to get your bearing.

The hotel is BASIC with some amenities, we stayed in the premier double which is slightly bigger with one tinted window and a sliding wooden curtain. The bed was ok a bit on the small side but soft after a full’s days shopping with the wife!!
I did like the computer in the room and the large TV, also the remote controls was a nice touch controlling lights and air-con. The room was cleaned daily but it really could do with a revamp the shower door leaked and the floor was scratch a lot but nothing to complain too much. Down side was no tooth brush!!

Would I stay here again? Location yes, was easy to get taxi, close to trains, close to shopping, close to local food shops. The hotel was good if you are a budget traveller or saving money to spend in the vast markets in Seoul.

Room Tip: Prenier double, more space.
