The location of the hotel was within 5 mins walk from the train station, Jongno 3ga and about 10 minutes walk to Insa-dong. Aside from the little incident we had on our first night at Doulos where the drainage in our bathtub was clogged, we did have a relatively good stay at the hotel for 6 nights, and they did... More

If you come from the airport, choose airport bus transport only pay 10,000 won. Cheaper if you you subway, but confuse and heavy if you bring your heavy luggage, different line of subway, you must move and walk through stairs, and must carefully see the sign of exit line (if you wrong exit line, will bring you into confusing way!...

Hotel Doulos was a great place to stay in Seoul. Doulos has a great location in central Seoul. Even with all the chaos of the city Doulos made me feel relaxed and welcomed. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Although the rooms were small they were clean and well designed so you never feel overly cramped. It worked great... More

Decent for a short stay for travelers on a budget - clean (small) room & bathroom (thanks for efficient daily housekeeping service), daily breakfast spread was simple and sufficient (small variety of bread & pastries, hard boiled eggs & soup), and location-wise, it's within 5 mins walk to exit 15, Jongno-3-Sam-ga station (from which we could easily take the subway...

I had a great time at Seoul last April. Doulos Hotel is superb. Small room but very nice for solo traveller. Very clean, had a great sleep. TV is not working though, and need to have more electric sockets though. There are many food stores around. Locations is very great and accessible. Will definitely come back!

The hotel is centrally located in the Jongno 3-ga. You can easily take the train from/to the airport or bus #6002. No need for expensive taxi. Staff greeted us, and during our stay they were always very polite and serviceminded. Housekeeping did a good job keeping our room clean. Breakfast is good, selection is a bit limited. Wifi-connection good. Our... More

Doulos Hotel has many things going for it. The hotel's style should be familiar to those who are well-aware of the Japanese business hotel concept. The standard rooms are small, enough to fit a double bed, a large-enough table that also has your TV on-top and the fridge at the bottom., and a toilet with tub. Sufficient for you to... More

This is the second time I am staying at Doulos Hotel. Location, location, location. It is centrally located in Jongno 3-ga. First, from the ICN airport you take #6002 bus to Jongno 3-ga stop, and the hotel is only about two or three short blocks from the stop through a tiny alleyway. It is also close to the Subway Line...

I stayed here 22-29 December 2013. Place is fine. Experienced the cold, but snowing only when we visited the JSA/Camp Bonifas.. I travelled there on the 6002 bus from Incheon.Immediately adjacent to where the bus stops there is a lane, narrow. 2 people could pass each other just but wouldn't walk side by side. It was so narrow I ignored... More

I booked this hotel after seeing that it won some award on Tripadvisor. I must say that this hotel is somewhat difficult to locate if you are taking the train or airport bus to Seoul. It is off the main road and the taxi drivers in Seoul seldom drive into the backalleys because it's difficult for them to come out.... More
