Benikea Hotel Acacia
Ranked #312 of 504 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed April 26, 2012

We stayed at the hotel in Jan 2012. The hotel is very close to Dongdaemon, there's an underground passage that leads to Dongdaemon and subway station, it was convenient since when went in winter and it was very cold outside.

The room is decent size, every room has a computer and there's free wifi. However there was a problem with our heater/air conditioner the room got really hot we have to open the window.

There's not much variety for breakfast, but the hotel itself is not too bad.

A spin off my ski trip in Dec 2011,
stopover at Seoul for 2 nights, prior no knowledge of Seoul,

Location , adverstised as Dongdaemum area , indeed, not exactly,
there is underground shopping street in front of hotel to connect to those fashion malls in Dongdaemum. Winter in Seoul is cold with strong windchill, recommend to go for this underground route to subway station day&night, it takes about 15 mins to the nearest station, which is only a few station apart from Myeongdong.
I would take it as a plus, a little bit away from the crowd, it's purely personal preference.

Room, it's small , but it's already bigger than typical those capital city business travel type hotel room, i like the control panel for the in room lights and temp, also the gigantic TV panel and suprisingly a DESKTOP PC available for you, i think this equippment is important than the in-room free WiFi, one draw back, the window is too small.

Restaurant, i did not try any, no comment.

Transportation, at the hotel corner, Airport limo bus - route 6001 is infront of Co-op, this i would consider a plus, since dragging your suitcase in cold is not a fun experience.

Overall, it's a value for money deal.

Yes, apparently they advertise as a 4-star hotel, according to what scale I have no idea.
Not as advertised, especially if you get a standard room. Small room with a small window painted over white.
The bathroom is not separated from the bedroom, so you can (with some stretch) sit on the bed as you brush your teeth at the sink.
If you are a couple/family it might not be a big deal, but since I went with a friend/colleague I really disliked that unless I wanted to step out naked, I had to get dry&dressed right in the bathtub after a shower. I didn't like the idea of putting on their bathrobe - poor quality, worn out with holes. Otherwise the toilet/bath visibly newish - renovated, up to standard.
Furniture old, minibar empty. If you want to charge your cameras/phone, TV bench has to be pulled away from the wall, revealing not exactly safely installed set of sockets.
Only buffet breakfast available, rather basic selection, not included in price.
Only convenient location and available internet were appreciated.
We were upgraded to a much better room (I'd say 2.5 star worthy) but only after the call intervention from our agent. Ask to view several rooms if upon arrival you are not happy with what you see.

Room Tip: Book the best room you can, upon arrival negotiate to upgrade.

It takes 10 mins walking to metro station, either Dongdamun or Uijiro Station.

It is more expensive than other hotels nearby, eg Western Co-op.

The room has only 1 tiny window, with no curtain...

The feeling is so bad even my room has a good view (13/F).

The hotel is easily reached by airport bus, convenient, near metro/subway, it is in the Dongdaemun area. Room is spacious with big beds and computer with internet access, thought sometimes painfully slow. The hotel lobby is a bit worn out and needs a facelift, staff and receptionist are polite and friendly. Beds are comfy, and is quiet I can have a good night sleep. Bathroom are spacious with toilet seat area and shower cubicle separated, and here is the best part, there is a Jacuzzi bath tub in the corner and Wow, I thoroughly enjoy the tub after a day of shopping, has a big TV inside the room too. Room is being cleaned everyday and trash taking care of…
The only thing I can think of is it could be a bit scary when walking back to the hotel at late night as the street is dark and quiet. That shouldn’t be a problem If you are travelling with a group, and I think Seoul is a fairly safe city.
Overall, I enjoy this hotel and will stay here if I am in Seoul again.

We spend two nights here. We payed $130.00 Aust and for that we got a very large bed, very large TV and a timber bathand internet in your room, a shower not a shower over the bath. It was amazing and the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We do an overseas trip one a year for about the last 11 years. Well done Hotel Acicia Korea. We will be back if we come back to Korea if not we will tell our friends. From an Australian couple.
Thankyou.

This hotel is located at Dongdaemun area; where market/mall opens till 5 a.m. in the morning. That was the reason why we book a hotel at this location. Hotel accomodates for big family, they have 2 double bed in room, and another extra single bed. Big TV, and 2 PC with free wifi in the room.Yes, they also have sauna and big bath tub in the room!. It's the cheapest we've paid for a room in Seoul. Only downside is, it's located at the other end of Dongdaemun, when you are coming back at night, it's really quiet and dark.
