Lovely hotel & friendly staff & a great location.

Posted May 26, 2017
Pros: Located near popular visiting areas, i.e. Insadong, Gyeongbokgung palace etc. Close to one of the main subway stations (Jongno 3- ga).
Cons: Wifi connection would vary and would be quite poor if you stayed on a floor higher up.
Location: Insadong, Gyeongbokgung palace, Myeondong shopping district, Namsan mountain etc.
The Hotel is conveniently close to the main road, only a few minutes walk, where you are able to access the subway (Jongno 3- ga station) and also the 6002 airport bus service to and from Incheon airport (currently 10,000₩) we did have trouble finding the hotel when we arrived, but were kindly driven their by the local police. This is one of the main aspects I admire about Korea is that people are willing to do their best to help assist you in any way possible even if they know a limited amount of English. The hotel staff are very polite, friendly, accommodating and can speak English. In the first week of our stay we had trouble accessing the hotel wifi, they tried their best to fix the issue however we still did not manage to connect. They then moved us a few floors down and it worked out well. The rooms are nice and clean and provide enough space to fit luggage. The twin beds were really comfy and we had no trouble with easily falling asleep. The bathroom is also clean and provides enough space to place things around. Breakfast is served in the basement floor and provides a nice selection of continental and western food and drink. Overall, I had a pleasant stay at this hotel and would recommend it due to the efficient service received and as it is within the city center and close to a lot of popular places in Seoul.

Great location, friendly staff, comfortable room

Posted May 4, 2017
Pros: The location is very good, with access to 3 metro lines, walking distance from several tourist areas including Insadong (which I really enjoyed).
Cons: Better hairdryers as UK voltage is too high so I wouldn't have been able to use my own without a power transformer
Location: Walking distance from the Palace, Insadong, Myeongdon, Gwangjang market for a bite to eat, and on 6002 airport bus service for just 10,000 W each way
The hotel is conveniently located 2 minutes from an airport limousine bus stop, so it is easy to get to and from the airport. Arriving, the lobby was welcoming and proved to be a great congregating area for our large group before we headed out. Our room (twin) was comfy, and the bathroom was very pleasing and very clean. The only problem we had was that the hairdryer would overheat very quickly and cut out (and it seemed to happen in several of the rooms) so we would have to dry our hair in 5 minute blasts. The tea facilities were down the corridor from our room which was very convenient, and as there is a fridge in the room we could store milk in there. The beds were very comfy, and there was a decent amount of space for our luggage so it was mostly out of the way. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and could speak English, helping give directions or ordering taxis for us. I didn't always make it down for breakfast, but what I did sample was good, mostly a continental style, but I enjoyed the dumplings most. I would definitely stay here again.

Hotel location

Posted May 4, 2017
Hotel is near to Jongno 3- ga subway station. Use Exit 14 which has escalators going up and down (instead of Exit 15 which are with stairs) to get to hotel. Follow the map/direction as indicated in hotel website to get to hotel. After exiting from Exit 14, you will be on the road level. Turn back and walk past Exit 15 which is on your right. Take first left turn into narrow alley, continue walking until you see the alley forks into a left and right lane. Take the right lane and you will see a 7-11 store on your right shortly and the hotel is on your left (in front of 7-11 store). The alley has shops on both sides. When the shops are closed at night, the alley is very quiet. I was all right walking through it during my 3 nights stay.

Doulos Hotel Review

Posted Apr 21, 2017
Pros: I like that it was clean, nice staff and near public transportation.
We walked out from the train station and had to walk thru dark alley ways to get to the hotel late in the evening. We bumped into a police officer on the main street and he without hesitation walked us to the hotel. It was just us getting accustom to alley ways and streets of this nature. Otherwise, the exterior of the hotel is beautiful, near public transportation and had a nice stay there.

Clean and good location

Posted Jan 8, 2017 on Hotels
The double room was small, but clean. Bed comfy. Barely fit with two suitcases, but this is quite normal for Seoul. Maybe some more hooks on the wall to hang other items than coats. There are tea/coffee making facilities on one of the floors, happy it's provided. Breakfast was okay, convenient to have it.

Great breakfast

Posted Dec 3, 2016 on Hotels
Nice little hotel tucked away on a side street, close to subway, restaurants and street food vendors. The room was small with very little space for clothes or luggage. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The highlight was the included breakfast with a good selection of food (even dim-sum dumplings), everything was tasty.

Fit for purpose!

Posted Jul 3, 2016 on Hotels
We had a comfortable stay. The rooms were a little small but manageable. The buffet breakfast was good and the staff at the reception were helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is a bit hard to find as it's tucked behind the main road in the narrow alleys but it's close to the metro station and few touristy attractions. Would definitely recommend.
