Stayed for 4 nights. The rooms are clean and nice, but a bit small. Only complaint is that the AC was above the bed, blowing directly in your face the whole night. The location is great. Centrally placed in Myeongdong, you can really experience the buzz, noise and lights within the area, and easily retrieve back to this friendly and... More

We stayed here for four nights after finding a discount rate on Booking.com which was far cheaper than the rate offered on the hotel’s website. The location really was fantastic. Close to restaurants, shopping and the subway station. The staff were very polite and friendly with enough English to get the job done. The room was definitely on the small... More

Located at the heart of the Myeongdong shopping district. This is the perfect hotel for you to bring back all the shopping bags and go out shopping again. You wouldn't be staying long in the hotel room either. As this hotel is quite new. Not a lot of taxi drivers knows about it. Room is clean, but small. Reception is... More

Im not sure if all hotel rooms in Seoul are this tiny, but ours was so small we didnt/couldnt open our luggage. We were only there for 1 night so it didn't really matter that much. The room was clean and cosy and their bathroom toiletries were excellent!! The best ive used in a while. The staff were helpful and... More

I can't fault a single thing about the Metro Hotel. Perfectly located in the Myeongdong shopping area and 2 mins away from Euljiro 1-ga subway station, this hotel offers spotless and comfortable rooms. It took me a while to figure out how to control the different lights from a single touch-panel but the TV, air conditioning and wifi were much... More

The room was of a comfortable size, with A/C that worked very well (on the hot summer days). You can't beat the location -- a metro station a one minute walk away. There are Starbucks nearby and lots of great street food as well.

We stayed 4 nights during Easter. From incheon airport, take the no. 6015 airport limosuine, get off at IBIS. Metro hotel is a 2 minute walk from there. It's on a side street, 1-2 minutes from the main shopping street in Myeondong and the NANTA theatre. The hotel was recently renovated, everything was so new and lovely. The room was... More

This is the second time I stayed in this hotel. I also wrote a review last time I stayed: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g294197-d455856-r168031675-Metro_Hotel-Seoul.html The hotel was renovated since I last stayed. Thus it has a newer look and feel than the last time I stayed. The hotel lobby was moved to the 9th floor instead. As a result, the breakfast cafe has become... More

Arrived at 5:00 am, had 1 of our rooms available at 7:30am. Had us rest in playroom until room was available. Rooms were small but fully functional, clean lines with all amenities. Beds comfortable by Asian standards, 4 pillows (which thrilled my husband) great location, lots of restaurants and shops close by.

Staying in Myeongdong / Namdaemun

Neighborhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighborhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighborhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
