Was here with wife for a week.. within walking distance to Lotte shopping centre and train services... also near to Myeongdong night market. It's so convenient to move around and you never get hungry as there are tones of food outlet and shopping outlet nearby. The hotel reception and small but fully equipped breakfast area are on the upper floor...

There are several pluses with this hotel: 1. Great location - next to subway, airport bus, main shopping centre, lotte department store, many eateries, street food. There is no doubt about this as it is considered to be located in the best part of town - right on the fringe and is in a quiet location. 2. Quality breakfast. Included...

Metro Hotel is just a stone away from the subway and located at the center of Myeongdong. The breakfast buffet was nice and the bed was large. Most important is the affordable pricing compared to other high end hotels in this area. Do spend at least 4 nights in Myeongdong to experience the shopping festival.

A decent hotel ideally located in Myeong Dong, with Euroji-1-ga station is just right behind the hotel and Myeong-dong station is just a good 10mins walk through the shopping district. Travelling around Seoul was easy with these 2 metro stations within reach. We had only booked a small standard Queen bedded Room (18sqm) which is sufficient for a couple. Room...

Great hotel with excellent staff. Location top notch. Amenities are all working perfectly fine. You can't find any hotel better than this in Seoul. You can grab Starbucks when leaving hotel. You can find convenient stores and restaurants within 1 minute of walk. I'm totally speechless with the standard this hotel has to offer. World class!

Convenient to Seoul subway (which has hit-or-miss directions). Great staff. Myeongdong is a riot at night - streets jammed with small, temporary shopping places - out at about 7pm, gone about 11pm. Great breakfast, wonderful walk-in shower, and about a mile from Seoul station. Only minor complaint is that shelf and drawer storage a bit limited - NOT like Japan,...

I only stayed here for one night. The hotel and the room itself was very clean and modern. The room was very cosy but very tidy and the hotel was right in the heart of Myeongdong so was excellently positioned. Unfortunately, the day I checked out I lost my passport - the hotel staff were so helpful in helping me...

Right the end of Myeong-dong main street, which means you could get lots of good street food middle of the night. Staff are welcoming and always smiling. Rooms are clean and tidy. Definitely will come back!

It's a small functional hotel. The facilities are well maintained and the room is clean and neat. The location is very accessible and close proximity to myeongdong.

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.
