perfect for shoppers. restaurants, cafe, boutqiues nearby. 3-min walk to subway. small but clean room. v similar to those in tokyo and osaka. i stayed on 3/f, bit noisy outside at 3am as those drunks were singing and yelling on streets. no breakfast as cafe was under renovation. but they offered free sandwiches. better than none.

Booked this hotel because of great reviews! They even rang us to tell us about the building works! We decided to come as they said building would be 9-6 so we thought it would be fine.they emailed us to make sure we were still coming about 5 days before arrival . Easy to get to from the 6015 bus minutes... More

We spent our holiday here for 3 nights. The room was nice and comforable enough . The location was in center of downtown Seoul, staffs were helpful enough but the breakfast with not as our taste. Hope the food could be more changed in our next visit. The hotel was good enough for a short stay.

I booked this hotel on the strength of the reviews but I ended up disappointed. I stayed there last week for 4 nights. The staff is great, always very helpful, you can't beat the location in the heart of the shopping district, the linen & towels... all felt very clean and crisp, beds are hard (I love them that way)....

Perfect location if you're shopping for that perfect gift. The Metro is located at a great spot for your forays out into the heart of the Myeongdong area of Seoul.The downside is that this area of Seoul closes up "early" so you if you want the late night you have to get a taxi though this isn't too big a...

Stayed for six (6) nights at Metro Hotel in Myeongdong. For its location and accessibility, their rates is fair enough. My husband and I took the limo bus (@10,000 KRW per pax) from Incheon Airport to the hotel and it was just an easy 5 - 10 minutes walk from the Myeongdong bus stop. We requested them to arrange for... More

Booked Metro based on the reviews, reasonable room rates and its close proximity to food & shopping within Myeongdong. Hotel is easily accessible via Airport Limo Bus 6015 and Seoul Metro Subway. We stayed here for 4 nights in Jan. Service was good but could be better. The staff's English was quite good as well. They also provide complimentary breakfast... More

Metro Hotel is a really good value in that the hotel is affordable, provides breakfast and has everything you need. The location is great, especially if you want to go shopping. Plenty of restaurants and cafes are within walking distance. And there is a subway stop very close by. The breakfast had an excellent selection and the local option rotated... More
