this small hotel along an alley from main street maybe a little difficult to find. but some good old gentleman was very kind and helpful to direct us...even he himself was not very sure whether it would be the one we were trying to locate....More

If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre 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.

The hotel itself doesn't have a driver. There are taxis readily available, but because Incheon is quite far from the center of Seoul, the cost of a taxi is expensive. As the previous answer suggests, the limousine bus from Seoul is a great idea because it's very affordable, and it drops off on the main street, very close to the hotel.
The biggest tip I can give you is that the hotel is on a smaller street behind the main street. If you take the limousine bus, then it'll drop you off on the correct side of the street at the Jongno-3ga stop. Walk in the opposite direction of traffic until you get to the corner (you'll pass a Nature Republic and a Lotteria along the way). Turn left at the Missha store. Walk down that street and turn left at the second street (there'll be an electric crane game on the corner sort of like an arcade game). You'll also see a lot of other hotels on that street. Keep walking down that street, pass the little convenience store on the left, and Doulos Hotel is on the righthand side.
These instructions are very detailed, but I think it's comforting to have landmarks along the way. It's really not that far from the drop off point for the limousine bus. The walk is around 5 minutes total.
I took the limousine bus for my departing flight out of Incheon. It was quick and reliable. I'm not 100% sure, but I actually think Jongno-3ga is the LAST stop, so you don't even need to worry about when to get off. However, just to be safe, I would suggest showing the driver your stop (print it out in Korean if you can), so he or she knows where you'll be getting off the bus.
