As most other people have said, the hotel is a little hard to find. When you get off the airport limousine bus (no. 6015) near Chungmuro Station, you can see a little alley between Kia Motors and Paris Baguette cafe.
It looks really dodgy, but if you walk straight down the alley and go all the way to the end...you will see a relatively modern looking building which is PJ hotel (you'll see it at the end of this alley, across the road from where you're standing by this stage).
Location wise, it doesn't look like much but it's actually really convenient (close to Myeongdong, Namsan, Namdaemum...basically, it's close to most things that tourists want to do/look for. It's also a few stations away from Gyeongbukgung and Anguk on the same train line, so if you want to do the palace and what not, it's all not too far off).
Regarding the hotel itself, the rooms are actually really modern, rather spacious (I stayed in a double room on my own for two nights), and the bed is pretty comfy. The concierge/reception and bell staff are all really conscientious and efficient. Their not exceptionally chatty nor did they seem overtly friendly, but they did their jobs well. Overall, I have no complaints whatsoever, had a very pleasant stay. They also offered a shuttle bus service to some of the nearby attractions like Myeongdong and Dongdaemun (I didn't take the bus, so I can't speak of how that service was for me).
Also, fun fact about Chungmuro (the area in which PJ Hotel is located): it is apparently the home of Korean movies (according to my local friend); it houses a good number of shops selling those miniature dogs (you'll see it if you walk down the street where Chungmuro station/the airport limousine bus stop area is).
