Convenient Location, Excellent Value”
The hotel is conveniently located: ~2 minutes from the #6002 airport bus (getting off at Jongno 3(sam)-ga), three subway lines (#1, 3, 5), many buses, Insadong, and several palaces and parks. The staff members are friendly and multi-lingual (Japanese and Chinese and English). The room is small but clean. Two bottles of water a day. Nice breakfast (dumplings, hot dogs, toast, salad, eggs, buns, cheese, fruits, etc.). Complimentary wifi. Laundry facility (2 washers and 2 dryers).
The room is a little bit small for 2 peoples with 2 luggages. But the place is clean. The location is good. There is a mart in front of the hotel. And near with the bus stop and MrT, near with cheonggyecheon. There's many restaurant near the hotel expecially for someone who like ear fish. But this hotel is not recommended if you want to keep your luggage for long time or for more than 24 hours because there's a charges. But overall the hotel is good for budget hotel.
The location is very convenient (Jongno 3 (sam)-ga: near the airport bus (6002) stop, the metro stop (Lines 1, 3, and 5), Insadong, palaces. The staff speak English and Japanese, besides Korean, and they are friendly. The room is clean but small. You get 2 bottles of water everyday.
Excellent value and location”
It is only 2-minute walk from the airport bus 6002 Jongno-3-ga stop, walking distance to various palaces and Insadong. Abundant breakfast and wifi are included. Excellent value, but expect small rooms (hence, 4 stars on Facilities). Excellent staff: courteous, multi-lingual (English, Japanese). My 11th stay in this hotel.
Small rooms but clean and efficient”
My wife and I stayed for 4 nights and everything was great. The location is ideal for budget travelers coming from the airport - bus 6002 drops you off within minutes from the hotel. Rooms were small but clean and efficient. You can ask to be upgraded once you get there and there's availability. I recommend this for budget travelers who also want cleanliness and comfort.
Good location and staff”
The location of the hotel is unbeatable. The subway station and airport bus stop is within 3-minute walking. You may find a lot of restaurants and cafe in this area. A convenience store is right opposite to the hotel in case you wanna grab a late night snack. The staff is very polite and cheerful. The breakfast included is nothing fancy but it is good to warm myself up. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone if you prefer a budget hotel with good location.
A very nice place to stay and convenient for the sightseeing.”
I needed a room for only a one-night stay to catch a connected flight from Seoul and tried to find a cheap but comfortable place for a night. We'd chosen the cheapest option in that hotel without a window. I was very much surprised and pleased to find a small window in the room. The staff was very helpful too.
Modest but complete hotel”
Everything about this hotel is modest but classy - from the art deco to the free toiletries. It is simple, but it provides everything a traveller or tourist would need. The staff here speak excellent english, which is really helpful when you need travel suggestions. The hotel is strategically located near a downtown subway station, although you would have to walk through a narrow, but interesting, alley. The hotel breakfast is simple, but you can find plenty of good food around the hotel, day or night.
Good location, can reach by 3 subway lines. Guest who wish to stay at quiet area may consider this. Breakfast provided, food not bad even with limited choices. Room is a bit dark, suggest to put more lightings. Housekeeping everyday. Room has wifi.
We enjoy our last stay here so we came back. They reno the hotel with more varity of breakfast. Staff are very polite, helpful and speak very well english. Very close to subway and airport bus 6002. We will come back again next time.
(1) Great front desk staff with ware welcome everytime when we back to the hotel (2) The breakfast is good but will be perfect if they can change the menu after 2 to 3 days (3) Only 3-4mins walking distance from the Metro station (4) Many local resturants near by and a store just facing the hotel
Nice hotel in a good location”
Nice hotel with more than adequate amenities, the staff are also very helpful and approachable. The hotel is in a really good location that allows you to walk to most tourist spots taking in the local area. The airport limousine bus is also a few mins away. Would defiantly stay here again when in Seoul.
Had a really good stay at Doulos. Although the hotel is tucked away behind shops and not along the main road, still it's very easy to find and the location is very convenient as it is so close to Jongno3-ga station, airport bus stop, some tourist spots (like Insadong, it's so close to the hotel!) and shops/restos. The front desk staff speak very fluent English, very friendly and approachable. They would willingly assist you when asking for directions or if you need anything in the room. Room is small but functional (you're out most of the day anyways). Price included a simple buffet breakfast. If there is one thing that needs to be improved, it's the buffet spread.. it's the same everyday so it get's tiring if you're staying for 3 days or more.. well, at least it's free (other hotels with same price do not include breakfast at all). Would recommend this hotel to other travellers.
Nice hotel and great location”
We had a very nice stay at the hotel. It is walking distance to all the nearest tourist areas of Seoul. The old village just north of the hotel is a pleasant area to explore and has a mountain park to explore.
Home away from Home”
We stayed for 5 days/4 nights at this hotel and it was a memorable one. We received great service, check-in was fast and provide good food selections. The staff are well verse in English which is a good thing. As for location, it's near subway (5 minutes walk) and near various tourist spots (points of interest). I would recommend this hotel to first time travelers and those who would like convenience.
Rather great experience, staffs are able to understand and converse in English. Location of the hotel is superb, very accessible to many of the tourist area. Clean n nice room, just too tiny if you have 2 huge luggage opened up in the room. Troublesome to get hot water on the second level as they do not provide boiler in the room. Other than that, there are basically no complains on it. everything is good and superb!
Small but comfortable room, centrally located”
The bed was comfortable, the counter staffs speaks English and they are very attentive. The location is superb, near to metro and major shopping areas. However, the buffet breakfast was a let down, limited choice and the menu is the same every day.
Very good ! ”
Clean room and washroom ( deluxe room) with good wifi comnnection Good breakfast Walking distance to Underground Station, Bus Stops and taxi A real 2 minutes walk to local and international food outlets and convenient store Very helpful front desk staff Complimentary coffee and tea and hot pot not provided in the room
Hotel is centrally located. Just a few meter walk to the railway station. Near shopping area. Breakfast is good. Only thing we don't like about this hotel is they charge us additional fee for the accomodation of my daughter who is 5 years old and will just share a bed with us.
Satisfied stay in Seoul”
This is my second time in this hotel and the best part is it being a few steps from the subway station. The city center is easily reached thru walking if one is willing to do a little exercise. The hotel is clean and quiet. Breakfast is okay and filling. A few cons, the hotel is already showing its age and is in need of a renovation soon. Water pressure in the shower is also a little low.
