    Great Korean hanok experience! ”

    Good location and Friendly service!!

    my highest recommendation goes to doo guest house, a splendid and modestly priced inn built in traditional korean "hanok" style, in seoul's historic bukcheon neighborhood near the folk village. comfortable, quiet, and located near the anguk subway station, the doo guest house also has the most cheerful and helpful manager i have ever seen. you will not find better value for money in seoul. if you want to experience korean style, then just book and feel real korean style. i highly recommend everyone who would like to experience of hanok.

    Good location where everywhere is just within walking distant. The guesthouse is also kept clean”

    I find it worthy for the amount that I spent. Doo Guesthouse is about 15 minutes walking distant to the Anguk Sub station. You can find shops which sell clothes, souvenirs just in front of the GuestHouse. You will run out of ideas on where to eat and what to eat as along the alley itself, tourists are spoiled with varieties of food! I met other tourists from different countries which made it even a better experience. Will definitely book a room there once again if i visit Korea once more time. In summary, reasonable price, clean and comfortable and strategic location

    Very clean, good location, lots of restaurant

    We stay 1 night @ Doo Hanok Guest House. Staffs are nice and understand English quite well. Room, toilet, kitchen are very clean. Even though it's a traditional korean house, the hotel still provides internet, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine. However, we got the room next to the reception. The reception opens from 8:00 am and close at midnight. We planned to sleep early and get up early as we planned to go to the Everland. We didn't sleep quite well cos it was very noisy. Phone rang all the time. If you wanna book this hotel, please specify that you don't want the room next to the reception unless you want to sleep after midnight.

    Nice staff and wonderful environment

    Doo Guesthouse provides very nice experience of traditional Korean Hanok. Staff are nice and speak English well. The location is also very convenient, which is around 10 minutes walk from Anguk station Exit 3 (Detail route to the guesthouse can be found on its official website) Also very close to the tourist attraction (Bukchon Hanok Village around 5 minutes walk) But the room is a bit too small for tall people.

He is very helpful and we would like to thank him for helping us with our heavy luggage and managing to call a cab for us. The Korean clothing experience at Doo is great!

    Walking distance from Gyeongbok palace

    I will definitely recommend Doo Guesthouse to my friends. Aside from the authentic feel of how to live in hanok (traditional korean houses) the place is very good and their staffs were very accommodating and helpful. It is only 10 minutes away from Gyeongbok Palace and other tourist destinations. Though at first we had difficulty in finding the place because people we've asked we're not familiar with the Doo, maybe people are more famiar with the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare which is in Anguk station, where Doo is located. Once you reach the Anguk station, everything will be easy as one, two, three. There are also lots of convenient store in the area, plus wide variety of restaurant to choose from. You may wish to try Korean resto, western resto, there's several shops also, few bars, coffee shops, etc.

    Spacious room for solo traveller, very close to the subway & Buchon old city attractions, very friendly & helpful staffs.

    This is my first experience in Hanok stay, very impressed by the friendly & caring staff on my first day in Seoul. It is so nice to have a room with heated floor in winter (mid-December), the room has fast wifi access, TV & hair dryer. Probably due to the old structure, I can hear people chatting in next door, but it's fine for me. The room is clean & tidy, share bath. Definitely I will come again, highly recommended.

You can also try the traditional Korean clothes(Hanok) and take photos for free. The facilities are good. The staffs speak English and they are very nice.

    family of four visiting Seoul ”

    We were a family of four visiting Seoul for a few days. We lucked out and got a large room with an attached bath. The location is superb, and the kitchen with microwave and fridge on the premises is handy if you want to feed young kids. The guest house is clearly on the budget side with finishes etc but is clean and the traditional aspect adds a huge plus to the ambiance. Be sure to let the hotel know when you are arriving—there was no one there to open the door and we had to unlock international calling on our phone ($10 a day) to call the owner to let him know we were outside the guest house.

    I stayed at the guesthouse with another 1 of my friend and we were given a great room. The room was spacious for 2 and really clean. It also had a small adjoining toilet with shower. Because of how it's structured, water would overflow and drip onto the floor in the sleeping area but it was nothing a rag couldnt handle. It didnt bother us at all because it pales in comparison to the awesome room we were given.

    Despite the small toilet, the mattress sheet was unclean as well. However, the location is great, one station away from Geobukgong. On the day back to Malaysia, the staff helped us to called a taxi to fetch us at 6:30am. I stayed in doo 2 so I walked to doo 1 to get the taxi as the taxi only know doo 1's location. Sadly, there were these immoral 3 Mexican guys who hijacked our taxi. They told the taxi driver they are heading to another place before they go to airport. Then I quickly called the staff and got another taxi on the spot. The staff treated us warmly and agree to refund our taxi fare despite the mistake made by Mexicans themselves. I was rushing to the airport so the staff said he would refund through bank transfer or paypal. They immediately refund the night after the incident. Bravo for them.

Besides you can try traditional Korean clothes free and take some pictures in the house which fits the environment perfectly. Hot water\fast wifi\and free breakfast.Highly recommend!!
