Seoul is one of my favorite places and staying in as hotel like Metro just added to my fascination with this city. Luckily this hotel is near the train station, fashion boutiques, beauty bars, restaurants etc. The staff is courteous. My party didn't have a difficult time searching for a taxi to take us around because the staff knew exactly... More

We booked the family room (2 double beds) for 8 nights and pleasantly surprise with the surprise with the size of the room . Central location but away from the noise. .Surprisingly for the family room located at 2nd floor, it is reasonably quiet . they have washing facilities and a cosy playroom for those under 3.

This was my second stay at the Metro in Myeongdong and I will be back for a third as soon as I return to Seoul. For me the Metro is a vital oasis of calm and comfort in the heart of downtown Seoul. It was wonderful to be remembered by the staff and warmly welcomed on my arrival. Communications since... More

Reception service was commendable as... More

Located right at Myongdong, this is just great for me (haha). 5 min walk from the metro line, this is just perfect when you have luggage to carry. Though the hotel is going through renovation, we didn't feel any noise or disruption. This is mainly because the reno is done from 9am to 6pm when we were out anyway. Newly... More

Staff is very friendly and attentive. Hotel Manager will even go around tables during breakfast and talk to guests. Standard room is small, cant really move around after opening my... More
