Lovely hotel, small rooms but clean and new!

New and clean rooms, superb staff service!
Small rooms but the rooms were new and really clean. Hotel were rather hard to find, but the location is really great. It's located near the subway(once you learn the short cut) and there are a lot of 24 hours eateries and convenience store nearby. Hotel has washing machines and dryer located at the basement. Free wifi in rooms!

Very small rooms but Clean and Good service

Clean, Quiet, value for money
Value for money hotel but rooms are terribly small. Overall its still reasonably comfortable. Will recommend anyone with a budget but not willing to share a room with strangers. The plus point is that service staff are generally very friendly and helpful although their english may not be too good.

Good location, friendly and attentive staff

Location, Free breakfast, Laundry facilities
This hotel is in a great location for sightseeing. Just a short walk from the Jongno 3-ga subway station. The small alley-like streets leading from the main street to the hotel give you a different feel of the city. Easy walking to Insadong as well as the area palaces. The room was cozy and had everything we needed. The complementary toiletries included fun items such as face toner/lotion among other extra things. The staff was very kind and attentive to guests. Everyone spoke English with ease and even commended us on our limited Korean. They held our luggage/delivered to room. We used the laundry facilites and they quickly remedied non-working washer. We were always greeted warmly by all the staff at all times. The free breakfast changed daily and the offerings were enough to offer something for everyone. The dining staff was also very kind and wanted to make sure everything was to the guest's liking.

best kept secret hotel in seoul

quiet, clean, superb service
the hotel is truly a gem. it is one of the best kept secret cozy hotel in seoul. the front desk speaks English, friendly and very helpful in guiding me through the city. He gives pointers how to get around the city the cheapest and safest possible. Very helpful and always with a smile. Hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. It best for solo or a couple as the room are made just for that. No drawers, though but everything else is great. They provide converter for US wattage for electronic devices. You can't beat the price and their service is truly one of their selling point. The street look kinda grungy but another high rise hotel is being constructed. it is also in the heart of the city, near the metro, bus, temple and right behind the cinema. I recommend it for solo and couple traveler or business trip type. Shopping, sightseeing, restaurant are all around. I really liked the street food vendors at night. Very Good and cheap.

great service and location

near shopping centres in downtown seoul
Doulos Hotel is a modern, clean and minimalist hotel. The amenities include buffet breakfast, wifi, laundry and internet near the resto. They also offer tours which is very cheap starting at $85 per person. The staffs are friendly, always smiling, good in english and very professional. Though the hotel is near shopping areas, and in downtown seoul, its specific location is quite hard to find, it is near jongro sam ga station behind the cinema for those who will avail this hotel, when you get there, they can give you a small map that they'll show you where you need to go, which is more helpful than the map of seoul. I love this hotel because it is cozy and you feel at home and safe. I highly recommend this hotel.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: walk along cheonggye stream which is very near then you can go straight to city hall and myeong dong, but first make a stop to insadong for souvenirs.

Great location but small rooms

clean and good location
Overall, Doulos Hotel is a good hotel. Good location with breakfast provided. Polite Hotel staff members who can speak English. I enjoy listening to the songs played every morning during breakfast. Check out at 6.30am and I miss the breakfast as the breakfast starts at 7am Few suggestions for improvement (1) Give flexibility for guest to check in earlier. (2) Give flexivility for guest to take away breakfast (for those need to catch an early flight) (3) Some signage right from the subway station (Jong No Sam(3) Ga might be helpful as it took me sometime to figure out the exact location of the hotel.
