Doulos Hotel is well-located in a narrow street, just a few minutes walk from Jongno-3 metro station (lines 1,3 and 5). From the hotel, you can explore Seoul by walking or taking the subway very easily. The hotel is clean and quiet, and the front office staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave us good food recommendations, and they... More

I spent two night at the Doulos Hotel while visiting Seoul and had a good experience. The hotel is situated on a quiet alley a short walk from the Jongno 3-ga subway station, which is within walking distance or a short subway ride of the main tourist attractions. Front desk staff were friendly and made every effort to help, as... More

If using the subway, exit Jongno 3 at the closest exit would be exit number 14. when you get to the top of exit/entrance 14, look for Shinhan bank and make a right after the bank. Positives: - Location to almost everything. Subway is very close by if you do need to go anywhere. - Staff were very friendly and... More

It's not a fancy hotel and don't expect much space, but as a small hotel in a great location, it's fantastic. It's extremely central to almost everything. We rarely had to go more than 4 stops and because the subway stop near it has 3 lines going through it, we often did not have to transfer. It is small, but... More

This hotel is not easy to find, but once you have, it's outstanding qualities are revealed; excellent customer service, great central location, breakfast included, good quality product, all at an unbeatable price. Seoul has undergone rapid development and modern high-rise buildings are ubiquitous on Seoul's skyline. Sometimes that's at the cost of neighborhood character. Fortunately the Doulos Hotel is located... More

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighborhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighborhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighborhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the center of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
