I agree with most of the other reviews especially the friendly and helpful front desk staff like Michael during our 1st stay last Sept 2014: 1. bargain rates considering proximity to Insadong, 2min walk to the subway and numerous food alleys ( bespokes Korean's love for good food and beer!), fast chk in and out, 3. clean albeit small rooms,...

My fiance and I stayed in this hotel for seven days. We chose this hotel because it had a great review and its location. It's located a short distance from a metro hub and most of the tourist areas like the palaces. Check in was easy and quick since the staff speak english. If you're coming from the US and... More

Good hotel, very good location. I had a bit of issue finding the hotel when i got off the airport bus, so would like to provide clear guidance for future users. When get off the 6002 airport bus on a main street, walk toward the direction of where the bus came from and you will soon see an Issac Breakfast... More

Hi I stayed here for the second time in Jan 2015 for 3 nights. The first time was in Dec 2013. Check-in was uncomplicated, friendly and helpful. I had a double/twin which is plenty of room for one person. There is improved Wi-Fi I believe, no charge and now 2 laptops for free use by guests in the lobby/reception. This... More

I thought all things considered for the price, this was great place. Stayed one night. Very basic and clean. Close to several restaurants and shops. Breakfast was okay. Price was right. I think this is a great value for staying in Seoul. That's its advantage. Would recommend.

Location wise-walkable distance to myeongdong city centre however having to walk in the alleys late at nite could be a little daunting if you r alone. The staffs were very friendly. Breakfast was good - the best croissant i have ever had. Stayed for 4 days. The menu were the same everyday but pretty much okay for me.

The service was great and the staff was helpful. The rooms were clean and decent. The breakfast could need some improvement though. The hotel is really close to the underground and it's a good spot since you can take three different lines from there.

Doulos hotel have very friendly professional staff that are very helpful. The rooms are a decent size and the Windows can open. The bathroom is a good size however I saw a black bug run from the sink to the basket of toiletries. Breakfast is good. Not a large selection but is sufficient. Hotel is close to the train station...

In general, it was a quite good hotel as workers were well trained and the hotel's location is pretty good. Sometimes it was difficult to find the hotel as I was sober half of the time but the tube station is pretty close. https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/106023067131637354979/106023067131637354979/posts this is my google+ site visit for more info on Korea

I was lucky enough to have one of the large rooms on the 9th floor (top floor). Room 903 to be precise. The room isn't luxury plus, but it was fine for our needs & a good size - much bigger than Room 901 that I saw inside of. The hotel is close to the subway station. You just need... More
