“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

This is one of the best value hotels in the Myeong Dong area I've stayed at. All of the staff were so helpful and friendly it made our stay even better. The free breakfast was great. Our visit to Seoul was great and it was made even better by the hotel!

We stayed at the Metro 3 nights starting January 17, and were impressed. The hotel is right in the middle of the action with lots of activities within a block. Subway is about two blocks away as is a place to catch the Seoul City Tour Bus(recommended.) Our room was quiet as busy, major major streets are blocks away, the room had nice firm beds and semi luxurious bath fixtures: heated toilet seat.
Staff were very helpful in giving directions. Breakfast was great with very friendly service staff.
Would recommend the hotel to anyone going to Seoul.
We made our reservation via www.metrohotel.co.kr

Room Tip: Higher as usual is probably quieter.

After 10 nights at Alpensia Ski Resort, we were ready for a bit of a city fix. This was home for our family of 4 (kids 12 and 10) and a couple of grandparents (who flew in from tripping around China) for our 5 night Seoul adventure. The hotel didn't have interconnecting rooms, so we managed with triple share in side-by-side rooms and it was perfectly comfortable and fun! Super location for exploring beautiful Seoul, a city we knew very little about. On foot, by train or taxi, we all got to go to places we wanted to see, from Kapyong to a tour of the DMZ - which is a must do. And no place was more buzzing with excitement than right out the front door, especially after dinner when the narrow streets and lane ways came alive. Most stores opened until about 10pm and there were street vendors of food and goods galore. We all felt perfectly safe and walked around at all times of the evening without any worries. Hotel staff were fantastic, spoke great English and were able to point us on our merry way. Palaces, Insadong, markets, Seoul Tower and Cheonggyecheon Stream...all within a hop skip and jump - buy a T card and brave the metro - all the signs and announcements are also in English. Rooms were super clean, regularly serviced, free wi-fi and all mod cons. The icing on the cake was the laundry on Level 8, which came in handy - for about 4000kw we did a huge load. Breakfast was good and for those needing an espresso coffee fix, Starbucks, Angel-in-Us and Paris Baguette are all out the front door. Great mixture of local and Western foods all around, most cheap and cheerful, great for the pocket but not the hips! Special mention goes to The Cave and to the speciality rice wine bar - turn left out the front door and it is on the left hand side of the next corner - super food and try the purple sweet potato wine for something different, but don't order too much as the servings are huge. Oh, and if you're feeling the need for a bit of Western food, go to Ashleys American Grill, above Skypark Hotel. We also ate lots of street food, which was clean and delicious. Don't leave without trying some rice cakes with hot red pepper sauce (Toppoki) and, if in Insadong the Dragon's Beard and some fried donut-like sweets filled with nuts and honey - so delicious. We are all still raving about our wonderful holiday and planning the next trip. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else!

Room Tip: Try and get a room that is towards the back of the hotel - it may be a little quieter.

I liked very much my staying. In the beggining I thout there was not enough staff, but they are very efficient. Only the breakfast is not so good, but the bedroom, bathroom and etc are modern and clean. the staff is also nice.
