small room with hotel's good location

clean room, good location, close to restaurants
Actually, its hard to find this hotel for the first time. Buts after, its so easy you just need to remember the exit number of the subway station. Its like 5 min walk to subway and bus stop and it takes like 10min subway to any major attraction or market. The room is very small, don't ever think to stay here if you bring a lots of luggage. The breakfast wasnt good at all. Its just location that makes this hotel price is high.

Great hotel but rooms were small.

Perfect location and great staff
This hotel was easy to find as long as you make sure you turn down the alley on the left outside of exit 15 of the subway (there is a small pharmacy on the corner of the alley - and it's only a few meters wide). Just walk to the end of the narrow street lined with trophy making shops and then when you get to an opening, look right and the hotel is about 20 meters along the road on the left hand side - you will be able to see the sign. The staff were very helpful and polite and spoke perfect english. The rooms were clean and well presented, but they were on the small side so don't bring too much luggage - we only had a day pack as it was a weekend visit. The hot water was really hot and plentiful. The breakfast was good, some cereal, toast, pastries, fresh fruit, fruit juices, teas and coffee, ham, cheese, salad, olives and a few other bits and bobs (I can't remember excactly what else). The beds were really comfy and you the heating system was very efficient. The TV had loads of english channels inc news, National Geographic, movies and dramas. The sound on the TVs are capped so you can't disturb your neighbours and they won't be able to disturb you! The location of the hotel is perfect, smack bang in the middle of the touristy stuff and everything is really easy to access. Loved this hotel and will definately stay again as long as we don't bring much luggage! Great value for money.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: If you come out of the hotel, turn right and follow the small road around and keep going to the right you come out on a main road. Walk down a few meters and you will find a really nice river running through the city. You can walk along here and becuase it is below the level of the road above, it is really nice a peaceful. At the end there is a coffee shop where you can warm up again!!

Staff that make you feel like you're at home!

Staff, huge bathroom & breakfast!
Everything was perfect at Doulos except that it maybe difficult to find since it's hidden in a small alley. However the location is quite convenient and centrally located. The staff was amazing, they were attentive and friendly although they might not speak fluent english. The room is small, like most of the hotel in Seoul, the bathroom however is huge and comes with a bathtub! The breakfast buffet is good and has both western and eastern food to choose. Overall it's a perfect place for an overnight stay.

Good value for money with excellent location

3min walk from subway exit, lively area with good bars and restaurants
I was surprised by the value of money I got from staying in this hotel. It is rare to find a hotel where the rate includes breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet block (1 block from the busy jongno 3 ga area) so you can't hear a thing at night. Breakfast is good value for money and there is a variety of foods.

Worst experience ever

It was really my worst hotel experience ever. The Hotel is on a back street very difficult to find but the hotel did not bother to put up a sign at the entrance of the street they are on. The room was small and staff were aloof. I stayed in Room 307 and the toilet was shaking. The worst thing was that, while the outside temperature was minus 10+, A/C in my room was not working at all so the room temperature was 15C and was literally freezing!!!!! And I had to complain to the staff twice and it took the hotel several hours to get my A/C fixed!!!! 绝对是最糟烂的住宿经历,没有之一!酒店在一条小街上,很难找,但他们也懒得在外面提供任何标识。我住在狭小的307,马桶是摇晃着的,屋里的温度只有15度,冻得死人呀!!!服务人员都爱答不理,空调问题跟他们讲了两次,花了好几个钟头才解决!!!
Travel tip: Never choose it!!!!!

Great Location Nice Staffs

Great Location, Good breakfast
The hotel is few minutes walk from Jongno 3 ga subway station. This station links with 3 main subway lines. The neighborhood are well consisted of restaurants and coffee shops. Walk-able distance to Insadong or even to the palace and city hall.
Restaurant Tip: There are some nice Coffee shops near by. Gumaguma cafe is nice for sweet potatoes lovers.

Room is clean but the location is inconvenient

Clean room and good customer service
The staff is very caring and could communicate in English. The room is clean. Though the place is near KTR (about 2-3 minutes), you need to get into narrow streets to find the hotel.
