Stayed in this hotel for four nights with family of four, 2 kids at 8 and 6 yo. I booked this hotel because it is really close to Eujliri-1-ga line 2 station (just 1 mins walk) and I think it is the reason why it's called "metro hotel".
We took KAL airport limousine no. 6701 and got off at Lotte hotel Seoul. You can walk from lotte hotel Seoul bus station to metro hotel in about 5mins.
The hotel reception is located at the top 9th floor. The reception is kind and helpful. Please be reminded that the reception will close from 11p-7a. You can get help from G/F watchman and he is really nice too. In daytime, you can get a bottle of cold water once you come back to hotel at ground floor! It is awesome in hot summer time in Seoul!
Because of two big kids, I booked the largest room type in the hotel and I stayed in room 501, there are 3 double beds and actually can accommodate 6 people, so I can have good sleep without being affected by my kids. It is much more roomy than I expected. I can fully open 3 of my large suitcases on the floor. The bathtub is big enough to fit 1 adult and 1 kids together.
I was previously worried about the decoration and the cleanliness of the room. Finally, I was impressed by this 3-4 stars budget hotel. The decoration is minimal and the room is definitely clean!
In the morning, we can have breakfast at 9F. There was 2-3 danish, 2-3 breads, coffee, packed juices, eggs, sausage, soup, sushi roll. It can't be compared with the breakfast at lotte hotel but it's reasonable for budget hotel to serve with such breakfast.
Definitely, this hotel have a high price to value ratio! If you can afford expansive hotel, stay at lotte Seoul, but if you want a budget one, metro hotel myeongdong is definitely a good choice!

Easy to find and walk from the Airport Limo bus stop (Ibis Hotel). There is a Starbucks at the street level which makes it easy to spot. The Lobby/Front Desk is on a highest floor but the guards on the ground floor will direct you. The guards also provide bottled water every time you step out of the hotel. We were here on business and extended with our family. They can set up a meeting room with a projector, coffee and water beside the breakfast area and around the corner from the Front Desk. Our contact Ms. Sue made sure we had everything we needed for our meeting and was a delight to deal with throughout the reservation process and our stay.

The Myeondong location is perfect for shopping and eating with all the cosmetic brands, restaurants and street food in the area which stays open till 11pm. It is less than 5mins from the Lotte Dept store which has a huge supermarket and food court in the basement and Duty Free. You can purchase your Duty Free here and pickup at the airport before your boarding gate.

The hotel is also within 5mins of 2 different Metro stations, and there is more shopping in the underground area of the Metro. The rooms are well laid out and have enough space for luggage and inevitable shopping bags. Breakfast is also free. Wifi was never a problem.

Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Lobby/Front Desk/Meeting Room is on the top floor and all rooms are on the lower floors.

This is the place to be if you want to be in the heart of the city. Too close at Line 3 Green line Euljiro-il ga and Line 4 Blue line Myeongdong. The rooms are big with free water and wifi. The brekky is western and should have included traditional korean brekky. THere is a massage chair in L9. Playroom in level2. Kitchen facilities in L2 and Laundry in L2. THe guards at the lobby are all friendly. Will definitely use this hotel next time

Thanks to Lucia and team for making the initiative arrangement on my nursing issue and this really came to my surprise. Really appreciate for your kind thoughts.

Check in was a breeze on 5th July.
There was an issue with my cc, however, the check in staff (sorry didn't get yr name) was really patient & pleasant.
Security guards were very friendly & helpful all the time.

Location was perfect, 2 min walk from Airport Limo Bus dropoff (ibis hotel) and 1 min walk to the subway which is just behind the hotel.
Myeongdong is just right at the doorstep with food & shopping.

Comfort Twin Room is good for families...
I had air purifier & humidifier upon request.
There was washing machine & dryer available @ level 7, which was great if you need to wash your clothing.
Book directly with hotel & get free breakfast.

I will be Back for this hotel again.
Thumbs up for service & location.
Thank u Metro Hotel for making my 10th Yr Wedding Anniversary a wonderful & pleasant stay on today the 8th of July.

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights during our visit this June and the hotel lived up to our expectations. We are a family of 4 and the comfort twin room was roomy for us. However, our room was right in the corner next to the fire exit so we only had a small window. If you are looking for a room with a view, then you might be disappointed. We didn't mind though because we were out most of the time anyway. The hotel's location was perfect for shopping and eating out, and tourist spots as well. It was also very near the bus stop and train stations. Will definitely stay here again if we visit Seoul in the future.
