This was my first time to visit Korea and i decided to rely on Tripadvisor in search for a hotel. Metro hotel popped up and I decided it based on the good reviews and the reasonable price. And I do not regret :-)
I stayed at Metro Hotel from 15-21 march and I enjoyed the central location of the hotel - easy access to metro and easy to change metro-line. I was curious about the rooms and breakfast since those topics have been mentioned in the reviews. I booked the smallest non-smoker room available and very sufficient for a single person. I spent all my time exploring Seoul and was so tired in the night that i didn't really pay attention to the noise from the streets on few of the days.
Complementary breakfast was good and sufficient to get the day started and otherwise Seoul is full of eateries, cafés and restaurants.
I got a call a few days before departure to confirm my arrival and during my stay a similar great service was provided. English was sufficient (i have nothing to compare with) but it was not easy for them due to me being Korean by appearance :-)
I noticed these cards to put on the bed (or for towels) wether or not you want to get new bed sheets etc. I placed a "no need to change" since it wasn't necessary but everything were changed.
This is not last time to visit Metro Hotel and would recommend it to friends and family.
