The Gateway Hall is a room in Bryyo Cliffside, connecting Cliffside Airdock and the Gateway. Explored in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, it consists of two chambers on each side, linked by an ice bridge created by Rundas' cryokinesis.
The chambers both contain various Kashh Plants, as well as frozen Reptilicus. statues can also be found here, built as monuments to the folly of war. The chamber leading to the Airdock is in the shape of a quarter-circle, while the chamber with the entrance to Gateway is straight and contains Bryyo Coffers of varying size. Both sides are dominated by the large Hopper Nests built on top of the structures - upon Samus’ first visit, a pair of Reptilicus Hunters can be glimpsed above and to the right of the nest on the other side of the bridge.
When Samus returns to her Gunship after establishing the Satellite Uplink on the G.F.S. Theseus, gates will close over both buildings' doorways, and waves of Alpha Hoppers will emerge from the the nests to attack. After their destruction leaves both nests empty, Samus is allowed to continue to her Gunship.
