“Nice hotel and friendly staff”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Great location that is handy to public transport and you can walk to a lot of sights.
The hotel is very clean and rooms are comfortable. The staff are all very welcoming. We definitely needed the websites directions to find the hotel from the subway, but one there it was easy to get around. The hotel has a free shuttle bus too.
We'd definitely stay again!

Room Tip: We stayed in a premier multi twin room which had two queen size beds.

We arrived in seoul at around 10pm so we had to take the subway to the hotel. This is not an easy route if you have huge luggages as some of the escalators in the station stopped working by that time. Nevertheless, the hotel provided excellent directions on its website on how to reach the hotel by whatever mode of transport you choose. To the extent of showing you pictures of each turn and directions if you have big luggage or small luggage.... Anyway we took abt one and a half hours getting to the hotel by subway. The rooms were huge. Even had an extra seating area balcony thingy which i honestly thought was a waste of space but anyway.. Toilet was huge too. Hot and cold water was freely available on each floor near the lift lobby so that was a nice touch. Hotel was also close to 2 train stations on 2 different lines. Chungmuro station and euljiro-4-ga station. It even provided a free hourly shuttle service to myeongdong and dongdaemun that ran till 2am everyday!!! Overall quite a good value for money hotel.

Stayed at PJ Hotel last week and had a pleasant stay on the whole. Rooms are pretty spacious and modern with free wifi and little touches such as a bottle of Febreze in every room, complimentary bottles of water every day and even facial masks. Service was generally quite good and the shuttle bus service to some of the popular tourist spots was convenient, though the buses fill up quickly in the mornings.

My main gripe is that the hotel's location isn't great. Chungmuro is central and connects you to both the blue and orange subway lines, but you'll have to walk through an alley of local stores to get to the subway station and back. The local food stores along the way are worth trying but I didn't like the walk as the area was gloomy and had rubbish strewn on the floor. There is also a perpendicular lane of karaoke bars and I might not feel safe walking back late at night if I was by myself. The walk from the airport bus stop to the hotel wasn't easy either, as the road was uneven and the hotel some distance away. A tip would be to stop at the Best Western Kukdo Hotel stop instead of the PJ Hotel stop as the walk is a little easier from there, esp if your luggages are large.

PJ Hotel is a good, affordable hotel, but I'll probably choose a better location the next time. Stayed at the Best Western Kukdo on my last trip and I think the convenience of having the airport bus stop at your doorstop and the subway station minutes away makes it my preferred choice.

We know our weakness, so we offer free shuttle bus service from hotel to some of main spot.

We think that you already know our service, but we keep trying to improve our service, so please visit our hotel next time and enjoy our upgrading service.

Thank you.

This hotel is close to the Euljiro 4-ga metro station (5-10mins walk). Free shuttle bus to Myeong Dong and Dongdaemung from 8:00am to 02:00am is very convenience. The room is big and clean. The hotel provides facial cleanser and moisture mask, which is thoughtful. The hotel brought good image of Seoul and made me have a nice trip. I will choose this hotel again if I come to Seoul in the future.

This hotel is pretty good - the location is not too far from a subway station which makes it really easy to get around the city. The rooms are clean and pretty comfortable compared to other hotels we've stayed at in Korea. It's a good value for the price and the area - Seoul is a great place to visit and this hotel doesn't break the bank so you can afford to do other fun things while you are there. The staff at the front weren't as helpful as I would have liked and they didn't give us any options for breakfast before 7 AM; fairly standard for Korea but would have made this hotel great if they could have helped us out before our early morning tour.
