This hotel was budget friendly compared to other hotels in the area. The room was more spacious than most of our other rooms in Asia. We had both a queen bed and a twin. The bathroom had a small soaking tub with a shower. The commode was fancy with a bidet and seat warmer. Most importantly, our room was quiet,...

My mother and I stayed at Metro Hotel twice in June of 2013. The hotel is situated perfectly for both sightseeing - close to Namsan Tower/Seoul downtown - and shopping - right in the middle of Myeongdong. We stayed in the hotel's deluxe room first and in a standard room the second time. Both rooms were great, clean and the...

This is by far the best hotel I've stayed in during my years of travel. Though it's not comparable in size to say, hotels in Bangkok, but it's service, location and cleanliness more than make up for it. Plus points: - Great location.

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.
