A sleek and friendly hotel

Customer service, hotel faclities
Apart from the actual location, which is well hidden in one of the back alley ways in central Seoul, near the Insadong area, Doulos Hotel has all the boxes well-deservedly ticked! The room we stayed in was of reasonable size, with all things a business or leisure traveller needs. We also especially loved the reasonably priced self-service laundromat at the basement, which was handy when we were travelling multi-stop in Asia.

Great Service , Comfort but small rooms

The interior . Location and Service
I stayed at Doulous for 1 night with a friend The rooms were very small but it was very clean . Clean bed and clean toilet . The hotel was very nice for a budget hotel . One of the best budget hotel i've stayed. But there was a big problem with the wifi . It was slow and i couldn't get connection a few times . That annoyed me very much. Staff was very helpful all the time . They were very nice and spoke English that was basic but easy to understand . The location of the hotel was hard to find at first . But it was situated at a very good location , right in the middle of main attractions of Seoul

Fun Location, a little hard to find. Small rooms

Great location, breakfast, service
Loved this little hotel. It is close to tourist sites and the market. Breakfast included both American and European options. Staff was very helpful with good english. Rooms are clean, but quite small. The hotel is tucked away down a narrow street and was hard for taxis to find. You should either have the address in Korean characters or the phone number so that the taxi driver can call for directions. Access to the free wifi was a little uneven - had to move around for a good signal.
Hotel Feature Tip: There is no option for a roll-away bed at this hotel.

Nice hotel with great accommodations

Softest beds I've slept on in ages, adjacent night-life and very close to Insadong
For starters, the room that we stayed in looked exactly like the pictures; so we were really happy that we got what we paid for. The breakfast in the morning had a nice spread and was pretty good. Insadong was just a short walk and there were a lot of restaurants, bars and tourist attractions around so we kept ourselves pretty busy sight-seeing and shopping during the day. The room was very clean very well furnished. Wireless and ethernet were provided, which was a major plus and the staff in the lobby was very helpful and spoke fluent English. When we asked about shuttle information for Incheon they helped out quite a bit.
Hotel Feature Tip: They do provide printing if you request it but they don't have a public printer or anything like that. You have to ask at the front desk and they will print for you. Having a USB thumb drive would be a good idea if you're needing them to something specific.

Fantastic location with nice cosy rooms

Location and accessibility
Rooms were small but clean and cosy. Good if you are there just to shower and sleep. Easy bus service that drops u near the hotel. Hotel staff are able to speak English.
Travel tip: So many people have posted tips on how to get to this hotel.. Just take it from them!

Very modern hotel--simple yet elegant

Lovely breakfast (with lots of seasonal and tropical fruit), duvet-covered comforter, conveniently located in the Jongno/Insadong area
I really liked this hotel--it was very well done, and I would gladly stay there again. The rooms are small but perfect for a solo traveler like me, and the room was well-appointed. I especially appreciated the freshly laundered cotton duvet-covered comforter, the spacious bathroom, the two (daily replenished) bottles of water in the mini-refrigerator, the fluffy pillows, and glass and wood details. The hotel is situated, slightly off the main road, in the Jongno/Insadong area. It's so conveniently located. You can walk to the shops along the main Insadong street and go to any of the myriad restaurants along Jongno. It's also within walking distance of Kyobo Bookstore, which was a plus for me as I routinely make stops there when I'm in Seoul. I was there, though, during an unseasonably hot spell, and though the air conditioner in my room worked like a charm, there was no temperature control in the elevator, which felt stifling and claustrophobic with undischarged heat. Also, there was a damp smell in my room that never fully dissipated. The hotel staff were great about using some sort of Febreeze-like spray to counter the lingering odor, and I ceased to notice it as much after a while, but these were features of the hotel that could be improved. Also, there is no food delivery permitted to the rooms. You can order and carry your own meals to your rooms, but you can't order meals to be delivered to the rooms themselves. I was a little surprised by this.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Loads of wonderful tea houses along Insadong street (the latter has lost a lot of its charm, but the tea houses are still so inviting). I recommend the cold, fruity, summer teas, especially plum.
Frank F. Couples New Zealand, July 27, 2012
Comfortable, friendly, generous, small clean room.

Location - central to wonderful palaces and markets,and easy to access from public transport, favourable price, generous breakfast, very attentive service, comfortable bed.
Wonderful experience. Bedroom is small but very clean and well maintained. Service is well informed, warm and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel - and what a wonderful city to visit!
Restaurant Tip: There's a wonderfully friendly BBQ restaurant to the right of the hotel and back towards the main street/bus stop. Don't miss the nearby National Folk Museum of Korea, Deoksu Gung Palace and Gyeong Bk Gung Palace.
