Classy, Cozy, Quiet, Convenient”
We stayed in the terrace suite. The staff were top notch. Arrived early and held our bags and were willing to offer us early check-in (unfortunately the rooms weren't ready). They gave us a late out instead. Staff assisted me navigating my way from Chungmuro to Myeong Dong. It's a beautiful walk (15 minutes from hotel to Myung Dong) or one stop via subway. There are restaurants, a movie theater, banks, and cafes surrounding the hotel. The hotel's professional and kind staff, location, price, and convenience made this a must for me. Totally recommend the terrace suite with jacuzzi. Incredible after a full day of shopping, sightseeing, and human bumper cars. Should I return to Seoul, Hotel Doma is my place to stay!
Great stay in fantastic location!”
Overall, I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Doma Myeongdong. The hotel is conveniently located just outside exit 1 of Chungmuro metro stop in the heart of Seoul. While it is located outside the central Myeongdong area, everything else about the hotel more than makes up for this. For one, the airport shuttle bus picks up and drops off directly across the street from the hotel. My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights for the entirety of our stay in Seoul. If I visit Seoul again in the future, I would not hesitate to stay here. The service at this hotel is excellent; all of the staff we interacted with were friendly, professional, and willing to go the extra mile. It is also easy to get around to the various sights. I stayed in a room with two twin beds, and the room was a bit small but clean. The bathroom was comparably larger. Stay here, and you won’t be disappointed.
Dear jennifer, Thank you for staying our hotel. We also thank you for giving a time to write a nice comment. It is true that the hotel's location is very close subway. We glad that you satisfy our hotel and our services. This comment can help us to recognize our hotel more and can improve our staffs’ morale. We hope to see you in future. Thank you.
Totally love my stay with Vella Suite Hotel”
This is a new hotel so everything looks new. But what impressed me the most is that the hotel employees take pride working here. Maybe it is their job but trust me the hotel staffs here makes you feel right at home. The front desk is always helpful and friendly. Upon check-in, one of the front desk staff will personally show you to your room. Not only that, I noticed that one of their front desk staff personally go outside to pick up cigarette butts and throw it in the rubbish bin so as to make sure that the hotel entrance is not littered with cigarette butts. Every time I leave or returned to the hotel, front desk staffs will always stand up to greet you. I got a twin bed room. Surprisingly the room is big at least for my own standard. No complaints at all from me. Probably the only thing I don't like is the bath tub. There is no shower curtain kinda dangerous since you have to climb out of the bath tub which is a little tall. Airport shuttle bus 6015 is just opposite the hotel. The hotel is located a stone's throw away from Chungmuro Metro. You don't worry about food because Burger King and Starbucks is beside the hotel. You can even find BHC fried chicken about 1 minute walk from the hotel if you are in the mood for supper. Paris Baguette is located opposite the hotel. A movie theatre is just beside the hotel. Even though the hotel is one subway station away from Myeong-dong it wasn't an issue for me and my friend. It is less than 10 mins walk from the hotel to Myeong-dong. This is going to be my choice whenever I come back to Seoul.
Fantastic location, wonderful room & amenities, pleasant staff”
I've stayed in Seoul many times as a budget to mid-range traveller, and Hotel Doma is by far the most convenient hotel ever. The airport limo stops outside the hotel, and Chungmuro station is just a few steps away. You are never out of food options (There is a delicious toast & gimbap stall just outside the hotel. It is run by a lovely old couple!). The service rendered was wonderful. Their attentiveness made the stay more special, like how they would notice that you were coming into the hotel, and they would discreetly call for the lift for you. They probably rebranded recently, as some of their amenities are still using their old branding. But the amenities are good and thoughtful. The standard double room comes with a nice bathtub and a good bidet. Beds were a little hard initially, but we got used to it. We found it strange that despite staying for 9 nights, we did not get a change of sheets at all. The only thing bad I would have to comment about is the strange sewage smell in the lift, and perhaps how the water from the shower would flood the bathroom, but the latter is normal to me for bathrooms in Seoul. I did happen to purchase the room when the prices were higher, and found that it dropped 2 days after I made the booking. ): Yet I felt that it was still worth the price I paid for. I would definitely consider Hotel Doma for my future trips again if the prices and services remain like this, or even better, improve! Thank you Hotel Doma!
I definitely enjoyed my stay at Hotel Doma. We stayed in the Standard Double room. Upon arrival, we were very kindly greeted by all the staff. After checking in we were taken to our room by a staff member. I was impressed with the room. It was fairly small, but there was still enough space for two. I was also impressed with the cleanliness of the room. The hotel is conveniently located right in front of Chungmuro Station (exit 1). There are also a lot of great restaurants in the area. Myeong-dong is only about a 10 min walk from the hotel (great area for shopping). The only thing that I wasn't too pleased with was that on the morning of checkout, I woke up later than I anticipated. I requested a later check out but I was denied. This was the first time this had happened to me of all the times I've stayed in a hotel. Despite this, my stay at Hotel Doma was very pleasant! I would highly recommend this hotel!
Thumbs up in terms of service and location”
Location- located just a minute from chungmuro station (one station away from Myeongdong), it makes travelling by subway super convenient. Good food can be found here too, eg deep fried chicken, 24hrs Korean family style food store, burger king, convenient store, etc. There's even a cinema just 2 bldgs away. Room- spacious and equip with basic necessities . The room is well heated during winter. Great service at the front counter with courteous staff who went the extra mile by giving us a detailed written directions to a venue we are not sure of. We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Doma and would greatly recommend anyone who's visiting Seoul.
4th hotel and last hotel of my 10 days trip in korea. 1st time I encounter such an issue.. Was looking forward to hotel doma because we booked the suite with jacuzzi. In the end I was really upset with the service because we check-in in the afternoon and only came back to the hotel around 11pm.. got stopped and asked to pay about another usd50/night for our 4 year old kid. we booked the room with terrace balcony, big jacuzzi outside, for 3 nights. now I have to pay so much more for a kid which is sharing the bed with us. Also, when we book, there are no prices stated as to how much a child should pay. If i am asking for an extra bed, i would gladly pay. staff insisted for me to pay and therefore i called agoda when it was already almost 12mn. I could not remember his name but his service was top notched. he calmly listen to my issues and clear everything for me. They waived the child fee off in the end. my son was very tired and we were standing at the lobby negotiating about this issue for more than an hour. Many thanks to agoda for rendering this help and solving this issue for us. Apart from this issue, i would say the hotel was really value for money and great for couples. the bed was really bad though, very hard, it seems like there are some plastic or waterproof mat below thus we could not really sleep well.. other than that, the room was really spacious, the jacuzzi was really good. I would love to go back again, but with this restricted policy... I would give hotel doma a miss as there are many other hotels who do not charge for a kid who is sharing bed with adults.
Dear Cindy, This is Hotel Doma. First of all we are so sorry to hear that you had bad experience on our hotel. However, these comments may help us to improve better services. We are sorry about your travel and your influence on our hotel, but we are thank you for thinking other customer’s fairness.
Good location just right next to Chungmuro Station”
This hotel is directly in front of the Chungmuro Station Exit 2, and next to the Daehan Cinema. For travelers taking taxis to the hotel, it will be good to tell the driver "Chungmuro Station, next to Daehan Theatre". This usually works well for me as long as I add in the info about the Cinema. There are plenty of eateries around this hotel, from Fried Chicken Store, to Bingsu, Burger King, and there's a kiosk right outside the hotel selling toast (must try!) All the staff are pleasant and willing to help. There were one or 2 staff who could speak fluent English and the others, very basic English. Service level was good. As I was there for a business meeting where my counterpart (never met before) had to pick me up, in the morning and drive to their factory, I spoke with the reception to request that they give me a call at 3pm if they don't see me coming back to the hotel by then. At 3pm sharp, my phone rang and it was the staff who called to check on my safety. I am so thankful that they did call to check on me. Thumbs up, Hotel Doma! For sightseeing, there is a bus stop next to the Daehan Cinema, 3 mins walk from Hotel Doma. Travellers can take Bus No. 2 or 5 and its a 15-20 mins drive to the famous N Seoul Tower. 10 mins down from the Hotel, is the Namsangol Hanok Village where one can see the old houses + watch free Taekwondo Demonstration. It is also about 2-4 stations away from Myeondong, Dongdaemun, Namdaemun etc. All in all, this is a good location to stay in if travelers prefer to be away from busy action-packed shopping belts yet still near enough for travelling.
Dear Catherine, This is Hotel Doma. First of all, thank you for giving a time to write the review. We really appreciate that you gave us a nice comment. It is true that the hotel is close to Chungmuro Station and the Daehan Cinema. There are plenty of eateries around this hotel such as Fried Chicken Stores and Burger Kings. Moreover, the hotel location is good for traveling as well. Travellers can go easily to Namsan Seoul towers, Myeondong, Dongdaemun and Namdaemun since they are not far from the hotel. Furthermore, you praise us our service level. We glad that you satisfy our staffs’ English level. Most of all, you thank to our staffs about the request (calling you at 3 p.m. for checking your safety.). Once again we thank you for giving us a wonderful comment. Those detailed reviews can help us to recognize our hotel more and can improve our staffs’ morale. We hope to see you in future. Thank you
A wonderful stay at Hotel Doma ”
Hotel Doma was a wonderful base for us as we explored Seoul. All staff were friendly and helpful - even providing help with phone calls, postage, and directions around the city. We enjoyed talking to the staff about Korean food and culture. Our room was quiet, even though the hotel is on a busy street. The air conditioner worked well (essential during the summer) and all facilities in the hotel room were as advertised. Probably the best aspect of the hotel is that it is right beside the Chungmuro station entrance. This made travelling around the city simple - we never needed to use a bus or taxi during our stay. We would definitely stay at the Hotel Doma again in the future.
We had a wonderful experience staying at Hotel Doma. It’s location can’t be beat. The airport bus stop is right across the street, and Chungmuro Station (exit 1) is right in front of the hotel. Numerous restaurants and coffee places surround the place. Myeongdong shopping is less than 10 minute walk. It was actually preferable to be a little away from the crazy mobbed streets of Myeongdong. We had two deluxe suits, and they were large and very comfortable. We really loved the clean tiled floors in the room - better than carpeting. The staff at the hotel is helpful and kind. We are coming back to stay after our trip to the shore.
Dear HELLEN, Thank you for staying our hotel. We also thank you for giving a time to write a nice comment. It is true that the hotel's location is very close subway. We glad that you satisfy our hotel and our services. This comment can help us to recognize our hotel more and can improve our staffs’ morale. We hope to see you in future. Thank you.
A great accommodation in Seoul”
I have been to Seoul for more than 10 times and this is the first time I would like to recommend the accommodation to others. The location is very convenient. It is at Chungmuro station, Exit 1. It is also near Myeongdong for 10 minutes walk. Also, the staff is very enthusiastic and helpful. They keep smiling all the time. Generally speaking, Hotel Doma is highly recommended to all travellers to Seoul.
Dear Yee, This is Hotel Doma, First of all, thank you for giving a nice comment to our hotel. It is true that the hotel is very close to the subway station and near Myeongdong. Moreover, we thank you for recommending our hotel. We hope you see you in future with better improvement. Thank you.
Very good Hotel”
Perfect location . I booked the Terrace Suite for 10 nights and booked double Standard for 3 nights , Staff are very nice love everything about the hotel. One subway stop away from Myeong-Dong & Dongdaemun Shopping District. I would definitely recommend Hotel DOMA to others.
Dear Pimonnut, Thank you so much for spending your precious time writing the review. We are really glad to hear that you had nice stay with us. As you have mentioned we are in good location to travel around Seoul. We hope to see you again near future with improvements. Again thank you so much, All staffs from Hotel Doma.
It's really AWESOME HOTEL.”
We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. We had to think long and hard when it came to reviewing the Vella Suite as there were so many great things about this place. All I can say is that you guys were great. The rooms are very beautifully designed, extremely clean and all of the staffs are wonderful. We had a lovely bed with a huge terrace which was kept spotless by the housekeeping staff. Especially, the mirror in the room, It was really big, it’s pretty good for my GF for her make-up. :D If you have any issues, you can speak to management directly and the issue will be taken care of - nothing is too much for these guys. You are no more than 15 minutes walk from the MyeongDong and there are shopping area in both directions that you can easily access by either walking or taking a subway. And also, the hotel is very close to the bus stop for airport. There are shops nearby, so you can buy some small supplies to keep in the room as it has a fridge, safety box, etc. Most of all, the bank was at the ground floor of the hotel. It was perfect to exchange money. The director Mr. Kim was the most amazing host - when you are told that you are all family for the duration of your stay - then you know that you are definitely somewhere special. The hospitality is second to none and it's wonderful. The sheer warmth felt from this place is electric - literally. Everyone at the Vella Suite works extremely hard to make you feel welcome and to enjoy your stay. The staff are a-ma-zing. Plus, I would highly recommend attending the DMZ and experiencing the division of the Korean territory! Thank you all so much for allowing us to be part of your "family" - we miss you all very much. I will definitely go back to when we next visit Seoul :) ps.) Entire building was Non-smoking, It was a little inconvenience for me, cuz, I had to go out for smoking every-time. But, it can be a good thing for Non-smokers.
Near to subway, convenient for food”
30 step away from Chungmuro station (Exit 1) There are 24hrs fastfood and korean restaurant around the hotel. One subway stop away from Myeong-Dong & Dongdaemun Shopping District. Hotel is clean and cosy. Only a little small. Other then that it's good. Hote staffs are friendly. There's a bustop which has express bus to Inchoen International Airport opposite the hotel. Will re-vist the hotel when i'm back in Seoul in the future 😉
Dear Pearlyn, Thank you for staying our hotel. we are glad that you had great experience in our hotel. As you mentioned we are in good location to travel around. We hope to see you again near future with improvement. Thank you.
Hotel with convenient location”
Doma Hotel is located in a very convenient location with the subway and airport shuttle located just outside the hotel. It was easy to transfer from the airport to the hotel and vice versa using the airport shuttle 6015 or 6001. Subway station is Chungmuro, one stop from Myeondong and easy access to other parts of Seoul too. In terms of the room, we booked the Suite Twin Room with an approximate size of 46 sqm. There is one big bed and one single bed in the room. Room is very spacious and comfortable to fit 4 of us. Beds are big too. Staff is friendly and can speak English fairly well. This hotel has a policy that children above 2 years old are considered adults and they do not stay for free. This is different from most hotel policies which allow children below the age of 12 to stay for free. As such I had to pay extra for my 8 year old son. Other than that, I really like this hotel.
Dear Haryati, This is Hotel Doma. Thank you for staying our hotel. Moreover, thank you for giving a time to write a review. It is true that the hotel locates near to the station and easy to access airport shuttle. Moreover, the hotel is not far from Myeongdong and Seoul Station. We glad that you satisfy our services and the hotel. We apologize about the additional fee. However, this is the hotel policy which had to follow. We hope to see you again in future. Thank you.
Wonderful service, beautiful place, excellent location! ”
We stayed in DOMA hotel with deluxe double room for 4 nights, except for the spring bed is a bit hard, I don't think I would change the decision to stay again in DOMA hotel when I visit Seoul next time. Good service, beautiful place, excellent location! BTW, the airport Bus(6001/6015/6021) station is just in the opposite side of the hotel.
Dear lin, Thank you for staying our hotel. We also thank you for giving a time to write a nice comment. It is true that the hotel's location is very close subway. This comment can help us to recognize our hotel more and can improve our staffs’ morale. We apologize for any inconvenience our hotel bed may have caused you. We will take measures to make up for this in the future. We will do our best to be a hotel who always thinks from the standpoint of the customer to realize better customer satisfaction service in the future. We hope to see you in future. Thank you.
Lovely suite, impressive location, caring staff!”
We would love to return! We received a special deal to try the suite and it was worthwhile! It was elegant, restful, peaceful, relaxing, and an oasis of calm centered in the whirlwind of myung dong. It's located conveniently next to exit 1, chungmuro station making for easy access anywhere using the train (myung dong, Seoul station). Our only criticism was the checkout time was 11am. Compared to most hotels, it's an hour earlier than usual. rgats why it's the tiniest of anomalies but in no way detracted from our stay. They spoke English very well and greeted us warmly upon arrival. I recommend you try the suite if you book this hotel. You won't regret it!
Comfort and Location ”
Cozy and clean hotel, pleasant staff and aromatic scents that made one felt welcomed "home". Conveniently located next to Chungmuro station, exit 1. Airport bus no. 6015 (KRW15,000 per way) pick up/drop off bus stop is directly opposite the hotel. Cinema, Burger King, BHC chicken, Sulbing, Paris Baguette, Starbucks, Popeye chicken, 7Eleven is just a stone throw away. Bus no. 2 or 5 to N Seoul Tower it stop is just on the left. I will not hesitate to recommend Hotel Doma to my friends.
Dear Peck, First of all, We are thankful to stay our hotel. We are glad that you had a great experience in our hotel. We appreciate the kind comments about our staff and are glad that our convenient location made it easy to see everything you wanted to. It was our pleasure to serve you. We look forward to welcoming you back.
1.) Location: A stone's throw away from subway. One stop away from Myeong-dong station. Hotel is located at chungmuro station, exit 1 beside Shinhan Bank. 2.) Staffs: Very friendly and helpful :) 3.) Room: Overall the room was great! The only problem was, the toilet was freezing cold. Definitely will stay at this hotel again if we revisit seoul! Thank you Vella Suite Hotel! :)
Super Satisfied with my Deluxe Room~~”
Stayed here 6 nights during Christmas/ New Year period. The hotel name can be a bit misleading, it's actually located at Chungmuro Station. I'll start with the cons first. This is a boutique hotel, so they do not have any swimming/ gym/ in house restaurant (it is not too much of a big deal for us). The bed is a bit hard and the pillows are puffy but stiff :/ Suggest requesting for extra pillows for added comfort. The perks of this hotel is definitely their staffs, room cleanliness, super big room size (Seoul standard), nice smelling lobby & lift and a freaking Jacuzzi in the room (and not to mention a hair straightener for the ladies)!!! Very competitive rates. Not much restaurant choices around but they have a burger king, breakfast toast & fishcake stall right next to the hotel (fried chicken restaurants & korean traditional food is a short walk). It's located right in front of Chungmuro station, you can take the loop bus 02 or 05 directly to N Seoul Tower, and Bus 6015 & 6001 directly to/ from airport. It's a 15 min walk to myeondong/ Gwanjang/ Dongdaemun history culture park. The staffs are constantly smiling, very polite and helpful. Front desk Mr. Park helped us order our fried chicken supper and even printed out a map to direct us to one of the bars that we wanted to visit (cause their website is all in korean) - a big thank you to you!! The only suggestion for the hotel is about the towel change during the daily room service. We do not require fresh towel/ robe daily, would be nice to have a way to indicate this (e.g. towel on the floor means needing a towel change). Overall a really wonderful hotel =D We love it. Would recommend this hotel to couples
