“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

A friend recommended my wife and I to Metro Hotel. I also read the reviews on this website and gave it a try.

I have no regrets during my 5 days at the htoel.

It is at an excellent location for shopping and has easy access to the train station.

More importantly, the staff at the reception counter are very friendly, helpful and caring. I'd like to especially thank Ms Emma and Ms Lebecca for their warm hospitality.

I stay for 5 days here .
And the room was cosy but a little small but the bathroom is great with japanese toilets
the localisation is great next to everything and the subway.

The breakfast was good and i think you have to take it if you sleep there .
Reception desk is great and will provide a great help .

Stayed in this gem in myeongdong for 3 times prior to this visit and still absolutely love it!

Book the deluxe room which is spacious enough for two. Although the rooms lack a view, the beds are comfortable and the room is neat, tidy and doesn't feel claustrophobic.

Staff here are excellent and speak a good command of english. A wide array of necessities can be borrowed from the front desk in case one forgets to bring it on his/her travels. (Adapters, Umbrellas...)

The hotel although small has brilliant staff that do go out of the way to provide for the needs of the guests. A water dispenser is available in the lobby, as well as an internet station and various maps and tourists brochures too. Luggage storage is also available. I also remember once where there was a bad haze happening in Singapore/Malaysia/Indonesia and they offered free health masks for hotel guests to take them home!

Also, the hotel is easily accessible by the Limousine bus from the Airport (6015 if i remember correctly) and comes every 20 minutes outside the Ibis Myeondong Hotel which is just a 3 minute walk away.

All in all, a very good property that i will continue to utilize when i am in town.

Room Tip: Recommend the deluxe and use the room phone to dial overseas, rates were unbelievably cheap!

As a three to four star hotel, Metro Hotel got everything that a tourist looking for...great location, easy access to public transportation, shopping and dinning spots just a few steps away, good service, clean room, friendly staff and reasonable price.

This was my third time to stay in Metro Hotel and my first time to stay in Delux Room. The room was spacious and comfortable. I will definitely come back again!!

Wifi in the whole hotel was convenient and good timely support from IT when we can't connect on iPad or iPhone due to logging connection time out. We had 3 iPads and 2 iPhones logging on in the same room. Service from hotel was warm despite the modest reception space. We took a night train from airport to the hotel, spot on exit chosen and we were there in literally a few mins from train station exit. We then took airport bus from hotel ibis bus stop due to luggage from shopping and it was literally round the bend, despite a quick jog to the bus stop due to the rain. Hotel had a real time tracking system of the airport bus arrival time via their iPad and can tell you with accuracy 10 mins before bus arrival at Hotel ibis stop. Breakfast was sufficient nutrients as with usual toast, there is fruit, fruit juice, yoghurt and some carbs available. Room size was good for 3 adults and there was follow up to release the same room configuration for us once it was available due to cancellation because we stayed a straight 6 nights throughout in Seoul.

Room Tip: Email the hotel for support if you don't get the type of room you want. There are usual bum outs...

Stayed in the Metro Hotel for 6 nights during July '13 for the first time, below is my review,
1) Location- 2-3mins walk after alighting the limo bus in front of Ibis Hotel, food, 7-11, shopping , metro stn all around the vicinity .

2)Hotel - Very well kept, room very clean and good house keeping (consider the high occupancy), quiet , good wifi (it's free!), breakfast is simple but sufficient to keep you full (Breakfast included in your already reasonable room price).

3)Service - Very attentive staff from the security to the front desk, never fail to greet, Staff speaks good English and were very helpful. Willing to go the extra miles with their initiative. Very approachable and very patience.

Will definitely return to stay on my next trip to Seoul.

My wife & I stayed 3 nights at the Metro Hotel in mid-July and recommend it highly. The staff are helpful & efficient, the hotel is clean & comfortable. The breakfasts are very good indeed. The costs were VERY reasonable. Best of all is the location. The Metro is within easy reach of all a tourist wants to see in Seoul. We look forward to returning there.
