I stay in this hotel with my friend for 5 days 4 nights in May 17. The location is perfect - very near to myeongdong shopping street, Eujiro 1 train station and airport bus stop (ibis hotel). The complimentary breakfast (bcoz I book directly on hotel website) provided is simple but good (especially the croissant), food is always replenish until end of breakfast hour (10am). The room and hotel is superb clean and spacious (the security guard even clean the rubbish around the hotel compound). All the hotel staffs are friendly (especially the security guards) and will greet you everytime they see you. Will definitely choose this hotel when I visit seoul again!

Room Tip: choose the comfort twin room - it is very spacious.

The metro hotel is in the myeondong district of Seoul which is one of the main shopping areas - there are other areas of Seoul which are potentially a little more upmarket but Myeondong has a very vibrant culture with everything from exclusive dress shops to market stalls selling local food. Its also within a 10 minute walking distance of Insadong and within a 10 to 15 minute walk of the elevator to the Seoul tower cable car.
The hotel is located in the same building as a star bucks as well as some other restaurants and there are plenty of other restaurants - from the cheap to expensive within a stone's throw of the hotel. Its also close to the Eujiro metro station and the bus stop for the airport express
The guest rooms are nicely designed although they are a little on the small side - i stayed for three days and would have liked a bit more storage space and a bigger bathroom but it does have all the essentials, including plenty of sockets, a fridge, an air purifier and aircon. It was also quiet, which surprised me given where its located.
The hotel does not have a bar or a restaurant but It does have a laundry you can use as well as a vending machine . The breakfast is okay but not great -worked out to around 15 dollars for a limited buffet.
The best thing about the hotel was the staff - they were always very friendly and able to help with anything from ordering in food, to booking taxis, to booking tours. Its not the fanciest of hotels - but good in its price range and in a good location for visiting many parts of Seoul

This hotel is a treasured find! I love its location, behind the Eujiro-1 metro station with Starbucks and 7-11 just below, lots of eateries and in the middle of Myeongdong shopping area, right across Lotte department store, a short walk to airport limousine bus stop.

Staff are very helpful and polite too. It is also nice to have the simple complimentary breakfast and you can buy T-money cards from the hotel.

We stayed in the family suite which has 2 double bed on wooden platform and my baby loves walking up and down the platform. They even provide a pantry that has washer and dryer, microwave and a steriliser. There is also a kids playroom plus an ice and hot water dispenser on level 2.

The only minor comments I have for the hotel to be perfect are more storage in the room and more hanging hooks in the bathroom. I love that it is a cozy nice small hotel and will definitely come back again!

Dear Wendy H

Greetings from Metro hotel!

Thank you for staying with us during your family trip to Seoul. I was delighted to read that you and your family enjoyed the property as well as its convenient location in the heart of Myeongdong, Seoul. Thanks for pointing out how we served your family with little children with low-height bed and child friendly facilities.
I also have noted your comments regarding more storage in the room and we will bring this issue into manager's meeting and hopefully make betterment soon.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future and in the meantime please feel free to follow us on Facebook for news and upcoming special offers.

Thank you again for your time to write a review.

Warmest regards
Sky Song

I stay in this place in the Easter of 2017 with my family.
-The breakfast tastes better than my previous stay in 2015.
-The hotel didn't provide T-money card and gift to kid like before but not a problem.
- the laundry room is very busy, suggest the hotel to buy washing machine with speedy mode or provide more washing machine to solve the problem.
- Remember to bring tooth paste and toothbrush or you need to buy it yourself.
- I will choose metro hotel next time in Seoul.

Very near everything in Myeongdong. Walking distance to sites within the area. If your going on a shopping trip, this is a good place to stay. It's near Euljiro 1-ga station and has many dining options around.

Room size is good, bathroom is clean, bed and pillows are comfy, breakfast buffet was nice with a mix of Korean and International items.

Got their relaxation package on a promotional price and with all the walking done, it was well worth it. Late check out also included in this package.

Good for friends, family, solo traveller planning to explore the hustle and bustle of this district.
