Great location but small room

Location near to Insadong street
9
The hotel was overall fine. Although the room is quite small for 2 persons. The reception speak good english. They'll even go out of their way to assist your needs. Not once a smile was absence. There's computers provided for hotel guest to use on level 2. Their wifi is superb. There's no coffee making facilities in the room but there's a vending machines for hot and cold drink at level 2. The infamous Insadong street is really within 10 to 15 minutes walking distance from the hotel.

Good overall location but small rooms
6.3
The general location of the hotel is good -- less than 5 minutes walk to the Jong-no 3 Sam-ga subway station and the Cheonggyecheon stream and less than 10 minutes walk to Insadong. There are also lots of nearby places to eat. However, the actual location of the hotel is a little seedy. It's located in a little alley way, so it's not convenient to go to, especially if you are traveling with little children, since there are cars that pass the alley way. The rooms are extra small, even for me (I am only 5'1" (155 cm) tall), to the point that when we put our luggage on the stand at the foot of the bed and against the wall, part of our luggage was already on the bed. There are no coffee or tea-making provisions in the room and you have to go to the 2nd floor to get hot water. Another downside if you need warm water to prepare formula or oatmeal for your toddler. They offer free buffet breakfast, though choices are limited. I didn't really expect much from the breakfast offerings since the hotel is not a premium hotel. My main complaint is that breakfast is supposed to be served from 7 to 10am; but if you go for breakfast at 9am, a lot of the food items are already gone and they don't replace them. This wouldn't have been a problem if they offered a lot of choices. So if you go down for breakfast at 9am or later, be prepared to eat whatever's left (which is not a lot). Otherwise, service was very good. Though the staff were not very fluent in English, they could speak and understand it well enough.

Good budget hotel

Near subway station and friendly staff
8
The best thing about the hotel is its location, it is near the subway station. They provide decent selection for breakfast and the staff are really friendly and communicates well in English. They have small rooms, but they clean it everyday which is really a plus for this hotel. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and it is really near to a lot of tourists attraction. This hotel is really recommendable for budget travellers. We'll definitely stay here again when we return to Seoul.

The Doulos Hotel may be a bit hard to find. Ask the airport information desk exactly how to get to the hotel. She will write down the bus stop and exit gate (useful when getting off the metro). Then show this to the bus driver and he will let you know where to get off. Then, go down the nearest alley and just ask any shop keeper where the hotel is and someone will know where to direct you.

Hotel Feature Tip: They offer late check-out until 3pm for an additional KRW10,000 (less than US$10.00) per hour.
