This hotel always full,so must book early by call direct to the hotel or you will wait for ages the reply mail.Bus 6015 stop in front of the Ibis hotel then you continue walk up 2 more alley (car allowed to run ) ,turn right the 2nd alley about 100m that Metro hotel and Smootthie King in one building.
the hotel check-in 3:00PM (strict rule) do not think hotel will relax their rules.Room very clean ,the aircond -heater work good but in bathroom sometimes has smell from sewerage because of water we use not enough to flush them out,you would smell this stink in the street too so the best is open room window a bit to get fresh air..
At night ,from the window of your room if you look down ,you will see the night market activity,maybe nothing you can buy but many young couples make it like a festival with ice cream on the cone that high 30 cm ,BBQ squid,shrimp or a cream puff big as a Big Mac,,.many restaurant or food stall around but price mostly 2000 W( 2 USD ) and highest is 30 thousand won .Remember ,food sell in the supermarket very expensive I do not understand how they can offer very cheap and tasty food at the night market and restaurant around.
Lotte hotel and department store opposite Ibis sell quality clothes and jewelery but pricey,under ground store a lot cheaper but local make products.
The hotel breakfast very simple and plain,today has boiled egg then tomorrow you have fried egg but the taste will not different ,one banana cut to 4 pieces as I said food is expensive in Korea except seafood,seaweed..Do not think go out to eat because shop open late and close late at night.
I love Metro hotel and Myeongdond area ,it clean ,it fun ,its food,its shop that I highly recommence to family and friends.
