I stayed at Metro hotel for 2 nights on October 30 and 31,2012. The services were very impressing even from the start of booking. The hotel staffs were very welcome and polite.

As others have mentioned, the location is super convenient. We arrived very early and left our luggage with the front desk. We stayed 2 nights on the 8th floor, check out for our 2-day trip to Sokcho, then came back for 2 more nights on the 6th floor. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. No problem for us to leave...

I really thought my husband and I would have to spend $300 plus to get a great room in a great area but the Metro came through at half the price. Moments from the Euljiro-3 metro and with bars and restaurants galore. We had the premium deluxe room and the stylish bathroom had both a shower and bath. The toilet... More

I've stayed 4 nights in Metro hotel - 2 nights in a non-smoking Standard A room and 2 nights in a smoking Standard C room as no non-smoking room was available.

I've tried but I can't seem to find anything to complain about. True the size of the room is not as big as other hotels but considering how much the rate is you'll actually get more value for the price. It also seems like management tunes in to past reviews. What I've read prior to booking is that they needed... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
