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!
