The place is spotless. Rooms are nice and very clean. All of the help are cheerful and very accommodating. Very nice complimentary breakfast. The best thing about this hotel was its wonderful location. Everything's an easy walk away.

Located in Myeongdong with plenty of eating and shopping just at the doorstep of the hotel, a street away from the #6015 airport limousine stop, right outside the subway station, a short walk away from Insadong and Gwanghwamun, I love the convenient location of this hotel. Plus it has very clean, spacious, quiet and modern rooms at a very affordable...

My second stay in Metro. Where else would I stay? This hotel is so convenient, so central to everything and ....i could go on and on. Anyway, since this is my second review, I have nothing much better to add except for these few observations: 1) new elavator system (using room card for access to floors) - great! better security!...

Stayed in this hotel for three nights and like the other reviewers have pointed out, the location is excellent right in the middle of the Myeong-dong area. As this area is a shopping, restaurant and bar area, it also makes it a bit noisy. You can hear the noise of people partying all through the night (bars close at 5...

We recently stayed at this hotel through tripadvisor. It received many excellent reviews so my family decided to book at his hotel for 3 nights. From the airport we boarded the 6015 bus. It took around 1.5 hours to reached the bus stop near the hotel. We had a hard time looking for the place. It would certainly help their...

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.
