The hotel is in Myeongdong area, convenient for shopping and eating. Just take the airport bus 6015, stop at Ibis Ambassador Seoul, walk about 2 mins, its just behind the Ibis hotel. The closest metro station is euljiro-1 ga station, just few stop to Dongdaemun without changing line. Hotel is in modern style, comfortable and clean. Staff are helpful and...

We stayed here for 6 nights and just love the hotel's location. It is so near to Euljiro 1ga Station, Lotte Departmental Store and of course every night we walked the Myeongdong Night market :) There are plenty of eateries around. Myeongdong Station is about 10 min walk away. The best thing is that we went for the Nanta Show...

Stayed in the hotel with my family and extended family of 11 over 6 nights in Spring and it was a great experience for all. Rooms are reasonably priced, comfortable, clean and well-maintained. Hotel location is a great place to explore Seoul, be it within Myeongdong and a 5min walk to the Euljiro 1-ga station that easily connects to many...

I booked the family room for 6 nights. The beds were comfortable and were on a platform, which was perfect as I had 2 children and there was no risk of falling off from the bed. Air conditioning comes with very simple instructions and the temperature in the room can be very easily adjustable to the right temperature. One thing...

Staff were pleasant and helpful. One of the ground staff even escorted us all the way to a Korean BBQ restaurant when we asked for recommendations. Hotel was clean and well equipped though basic. We stayed two nights and housekeeping didn't enter though this was not an issue for us. Fridge is quite small. Could barely fit anything. We managed...

Our Room was quite small, but still there was enough space. Room was very clean and nice. Bed was excellent. Breakfast was good....

2nd time staying at Metro Hotel and won't be the last. Still very pleased with everything they could possibly offer, be it before or during my stay. Emails were always answered promptly and location wise there's nothing to fault them over. Downstairs is a Starbucks and an Innisfree store, just a couple minutes away from all the best fried chicken...

We love this hotel.... There's absolutely nothing negative you can pinned it down. Smacked right in the Centre of all activities - you have the food street just outside the hotel, endless lanes of boutiques for your beauty needs, Lotte shopping mall for your duty free shopping. Major tourist attraction - theatre that showed Nanta - the longest showing theatre...

Location is great as it is within 2-min walk to the metro with many restaurants/shops nearby. The hotel is also one block away from the night market. We had a deluxe queen room, which looked to be slightly larger than some other rooms closer to the elevator. Oh and there is only one elevator for the entire hotel (check-in uses...

It has been long overdue but I would still like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at the reception for their assistance, care and concern during our stay there in December 2016. The staff spoke decent English and were able to give us appropriate advice when my mother-in-law was unwell. They showed their care and concern when they...

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.
