“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Our family of 4 stayed in the triple room for 6 nights, and it was a comfortable stay which we totally enjoyed. No qualms about returning to this hotel again.

1) We booked via 3rd party and when I dropped an email to confirm the booking directly with PJ Hotel, the hotel responded promptly.

2) Check-in was swift.

3) Security: Access to lift was controlled by our room card. We stayed in the 5th floor which was also restricted via card access only. However, we did notice the the 8th floor is not and hence the access controlled might not be applied to all floors.

4) The business center at the 8th floor was great for us as we could use the computer and printer (we did online checking and printed our boarding pass there).

5) The laundry utilities was also situated on the 8th floor. We didn't get to use it (even though this is one factor which made me book this hotel .. haha) but when we checked out the place, it looked clean and best of all it had a vending machine selling packet detergent.

6) We had breakfast in the hotel once. The spread was good enough and best of all, it came with an affordable price! The breakfast ended at 10am which was a little early for us (needed more sleep), and hence we couldn't make it for more times.

7) Free bus services was also one of the factors which attracted me to book this hotel but we didn't use it as we found the stations to be near and so we ended up walking to the subway instead.

8) There were two 24 hour convenience stores next to the hotel. We often dropped by the stores on our way back to hotel. There is no room service in the hotel and so usually we would stock up food/fruits/drink/snacks.

9) Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. When we had problem with our tv, a ring to the front desk and immediately the hotel staff attended/assisted us by coming our room to check. The concierge team was also very helpful and assisted in our queries/bookings. The bell boys were very prompt with helping the guests to load the luggage on the conveyor belt (Read a past review on the need to carry the luggage on the flight of steps to the lobby. With this conveyor belt, it is easy to transport the luggage up and down from the lobby).

10) Room came with heater (great as we could control the temperature as desired as compared to centralized heating), 2 tvs (lots of channels) and air cleaner (wonderful surprise). The triple room was big and so we had enough room space to place our 4 luggage. Not sure why but somehow the toilet did not come with a lock. It was not an issue for us since we travelled as a family. The bathroom was quite big with a separated shower area from the bathtub. General toiletries (face wash too!) were provided (love the free masks given on the 1st night) but do note that toothbrushes were not provided.

11) We found that the surrounding was not as deserted as commented by some. Convenience shops, cafés, pharmacy and eateries could be found within walking distance. As we usually returned at the wee hour, we didn't really had time to try these places (other than the convenience stores).

I just checked in today and already am so impressed with the hotel. Check in was great and all the staffs are ready to help you . I make a special request for corner room and I got a lovely spacious room, and the amenities in the room beat the 5 star hotel!! Even had free Nespresso in the room. It has free shuttle service and information at the lobby for places to visit and for dining. I will definitely stay here again

My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel PJ for two nights in November. We were happy to have been upgraded to a lovely suite which was spacious and really comfortable. All the staff were really helpful from the concierge to the bell staff and housemaids and many spoke English or were able to get someone to answer our questions. Although I agree with some of the reviewers that the location seems a little industrial, it is not far from many attractions and the hotel runs a shuttle bus service from morning till evening which takes you into shopping, markets, train stops etc. We found the service great and used it on both days. The concierge helped us with suggestions on how to get to the palace and tower which we found really useful.
We had the buffet breakfast which is really good, diverse and delicious. I highly recommend it. It includes both Western and Korean food and is well worth it.
Overall I am really pleased we chose Hotel PJ and would definitely stay there again.

Booked for 2 nights. Room was spacious and very comfortable. Hotel staff were friendly and ready to assist. Concierge helped my friend and I in our booking for Jump and gave good directions on how to get to the theatre. Free shuttle to Myeondong & Dongdaemun made it a breeze to shop till we drop. Icing on the cake was a free room upgrade as all the standard rooms were fully booked. Will want to stay again.

We stayed in Hotel PJ for 5 nights ( 2 to 7 Nov 2013) after staying at Lotte Hotel on business. Initially we were not too pleased with the location of the hotel as it is within what seemed like a light industry industrial zone. The small shops along the flyover towards Chungmuru station has various shops from printing and paper supplies. Not quite a shoppers and food paradise. Surroundings aside, the hotel was excellent, from its cleanliness, comfort, free shuttle service timely, fantastic concierge service and porter services. We were looking for a 2D1N Mt Seorak trip, the concierge patiently called several tour companies to find us the best deal. Everyone of our queries were well attended. If you like free and easy travel, the fantastic concierge service at Hotel PJ is reason alone to stay here

This was the first time I've been to Seoul. I really love the hotel. The staff are so helpful, always asking if we need any help and figuring out ways to map out our routes. They all speak relatively good English and we had no problems with communication.

Although this hotel may not be located within the main shopping street like Myeongdong, it is very close to 2 train stations (Chungmuro and Euljiro 4 san). There's also shuttle buses to take you to the station if you're lazy to walk there. However it's a short walk so I normally walk there. I also enjoy staying in a quieter, less crowded area.

The hotel room is really nice and cosy, with a balcony (indoor and sheltered). Not the best view but it's not a concern to me. What I love about the toilet is that it has a Japanese automatic toilet bowl!

The only aspect the hotel can improve on is it's restaurants. There are only 2 restaurants within the hotel. One that opens for buffet breakfast and a Korean restaurant for dinner. There are many local eateries around the hotel which I didnt try but they are full of locals and seem pretty popular! There is also a pharmacy across from the hotel - the pharmacist is a very nice man and he can speak English. Good to take note if you fall ill during your trip.

Overall a very good experience and will definitely stay here if I ever return to Seoul!

This hotel was the last one we stayed in on our trip. The room was nice enough. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel offered free internet and printing which was a bonus as we could print our boarding passes for our travel home. They also offered a free shuttle that went about a 5km radius of the hotel that ran from 9am-6pm and then an evening one ran from 7pm-10pm. This was a bonus as it saved on walking and taking the subway (which is very intricate but amazing to get around all of Seoul)!!!!

The staff are very friendly and will help you get almost anywhere you want to go, all you have to do is ask. They will even write down where you want to go in Koren so you just have to show it to people to get directions.

It is far from the airport so the only caution is to take the airport shuttle when you arrive and when you leave. It runs almost 24 hours and only costs 10,000Won ($10USD) whereas a taxi cost $65,000Won ($65.00). It is worth inquiring about it before you go or when you get there!
