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.
