Rooms with balcony and view!!”
pj hotel was really a nice looking, modern, maybe 4 stars hotel despite being surrounded by small industries, such as printing, furniture and lighting shops. at the main entrance, you had to climb up a flight of stairs to reach its lobby at level 2. a luggage belt was present though. throughout my stay, i realised that this hotel is a hit among japanese and chinese tourists. staffs were really warm and friendly, and spoke english, japanese or chinese. my room was situated on the 10th floor. room was spacious, beautiful, and immaculately clean and tidy. toilet came with a bathtub. there was even a balcony, where i sat and drank take out coffee and ate desserts on many nights, and staring out at the night sky of seoul. per night costed sgd$120. surrounding pj hotel were 3 different stations: chungmuro (blue and orange line) in the south west; euljiro 3(sam)-ga (green and orange line) in the north west; and euljiro 4(sa)-ga (green and purple line) in the north east. the distance to all these 3 stations were about the same, taking about 5-10 min. what this meant was that pj hotel effectively was connected to 4 different subway lines, blue, orange, green and purple, and by choosing which station to go to, you really save the time changing lines. for most of my trips, i used either chungmuro or euljiro-3. pj hotel also provided shuttle buses that bring you to nearby tourist spots like myeong-dong, nandaemun and dongdaemun. in fact it was within walking distance from myeong-dong. sometimes, after dinner in myeong-dong, i just take a leisure stroll back to the hotel. please check out my blog for more information about the hotel and surrounding.
Excellent Hotel in Seoul”
My family and I had a pleasant stay in PJ Hotel for 7 days. I have a high recommendation towards hotel PJ and i definitely will choose to stay in PJ hotel again for my next visit in Seoul. The location is just nice and is only 10 minutes walk to Myeongdong which is the place that i like most in Seoul as the food is nice and is very crowded there and you can find almost everything in Myeongdong. Secondly, the people in PJ hotel is very nice and helpful. For this trip, I bring along my mother who need to use wheel chair all the time and the helpfulness of PJ hotel people really impressed me. They helped me to get a taxi all the time, helped to carry wheelchair & other things into the cab, provided the lift ( no need to climb the staircase ), showed me the nearest good restaurant which the food is super good, greeting us with a wonderful smile and always asked us whether we need any help or not. Especially the uncle at the front door, he always offered us help while we want to go out with a wonderful smile. Thirdly, the shuttle bus provided is very convenient. They nearly go to every location that tourist will go and from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. The driver is very professional and will ensure every passengers are safely seated only start driving. Like us, I mostly travel by using cab, it is very convenient as most of the place is just nearby. Even though PJ hotel is not located at the crowded area in Myeongdong, but for a tourist, that is not a problem at all. You can choose to travel by subway which is only 5 min walk from hotel, by shuttle bus which is free or by cab which the fare is just alright. And for food, there is a couple of restaurant nearly provided good food like Omori and the stall at the left hand side of the hotel which serve kimchi steamboat and BBQ pork which i think is the best i eat in Seoul in this trip. Overall, I give a hight rate for this hotel.
Gives Korea a very good impression”
It was my friends and I virgin trip to the land of K-pop and I decided to stay at PJ hotel as I found the price tag very attractive. The hotel is located in the Chungmuro district (which looks quite run down and emtpy) but a quick investigative search actually revealed to be the origins of Korea cinema!! What a shocker! Well we reached the hotel at 11am and could only check in at 2pm. Luckily the hotel can actually allow you to store your luggage inside the concierge office while you wilt your time shopping. PJ hotel is located in between one of the two most famous shopping districts in Korea namely Myeong dong and Dongdamun hence it is very convenient. Communication with the hotel staff was no obstacle as most (If not all) of them could speak relatively good English! I booked a triple bed room and the room was spacious and super comfy. The heater was great as well being winter and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at PJ hotel! 2 Thumbs up PJ!
Value for money and nice staff.”
My family find the rooms (Premier Twin and Twin) clean and comfortable, particularly with a size much larger than expected (those who have had experience staying at Seoul hotels shall know. Though we only tried its buffet breakfast once and ate out for most of the occasions, we find it value for money, though with not many varieties. Staff are generally helpful, nice and able to communicate in English effectively. With shuttle bus services (two routes serving at different time slots) going to the shopping/eating-out areas e.g. Myeong-dong, Insadong shall satisfy most people's shopping/food appetite. Subway Chungmuro Station and airport bus (Route 6015) is within walking distance (within 3-5 minutes). If you choose to go for your shopping and sight seeing by subway as the core transportation means, PJ Hotel won't be a bad choice. Local shops and small supermarkets nearby shall fit your needs for soft drink, snacks and even local foods as well. Given its price, service (staff, good WiFi, minibar, safe...etc.) and location, PJ Hotel is considered to be value-for-money choice.
Very pleasant stay”
Location wise, it is extremely convenient - there are 3 train stations with around 5 mins walking distance from the hotel (blue, purple and green lines). There’s shuttle bus service from the hotel to Myeong dong (daytime) and dongdamun (night) but it is definitely walkable to Myeong dong, gwangjang market from the hotel. Need not worry about food because there’s 24 hour convenient store and some local restaurants open till late midnight (or 24H). Hotel room itself is very spacious and impressive (we booked premier triple), especially for 3 of us having lots of shoppings during this trip. We also like the hotel breakfast (15,000 won for hotel resident) and it is definitely worth to try! One important feature is the hotel offers free hanbok photo shooting for girls during weekdays (not difficult to reserve at all) and it was an amazing experience for me. This hotel is definitely one of my choices for my next trip to Seoul!
Precious and Joy - just the right name for this hotel”
1. Location is great, near the shopping malls in Myeong-dong & Dongdaemun but good enough that it is kind of far from the busy crowd. Overslept every night of our stay here :-D and that's great since we are on a vacay. 2. It looks like a 7 from the outside but wait till you see the inside, easily an 11 from 1-10 ;-) 3. Clean suites, the ladies made up our room on a daily. Replenished our toiletries even without asking +++ 4. Read the description, no early check-in. We took a red-eye flight from MNL - ICN and arrived at the Hotel around 10. I attempted to ask if there are rooms available for an early check-in, front desk said Nope. Hotel was full that day. Maybe they saw how tired we looked as we were ushered to the guest lounge so we can stretch a little, charge our devices and enjoy a cup of tea or 2. After a couple of minutes, we were told we can check-in, NO EXTRA COST. That, for me, is GREAT SERVICE. Thanks to the gentlemen at the front desk. Overall, HOTEL PJ is a MUST in Seoul.
Hello, Dear, Guest, nice to hear from you~ Thank you very much for choosing especially our hotel as a staying place in Seoul this time. It`s a big pleasure for us to hear a lot of positive words and compliments about our hotel because we are always trying to do our best.

Will be waiting for you with pleasure~~ Thank you. Regards PJ Hotel
I would stay again”
Based on the agoda travellers' reviews, I booked 6 night at PJ hotel. Never regret it. Thank you!! This is my 3rd trip to Seoul and PJ hotel is the best hotel that meet my needs. Since my main objective is to shop, easy access to the main shopping areas is impt. PJ offers every 15min interval bus service to MyeongDong, Namdaemong and Lotte shoping center, from 8am to 11am. From 11am to 2am, every hourly shuttle bus service is provided to Dongdaemong at evening. I have saved the time and money in travelling. This Is impt if you do not want to waste time or carry shopping bags in the train. Another adv is the bed ... it is so comfy. :) and many of the rooms are triple-sharing. Good for family or friends. Spacious room.
Nice, comfortable & convenient hotel to stay”
Very nice hotel, its superb comfortable hotels, good location, easy to get public transport, just 3 minutes walk to Chungmuro Subway Station & 4 minutes walk to Euljiro3(sam)-ga subway station. PJ Hotel is nearby Myeongdong area is about 15-20 minutes walks from PJ Hotel to Myeongdong area. Besides that, PJ Hotels do provide shuttle bus to Myeongdong & Dongdaemun shopping area. The hotel staff is very friendly, always welcome customer with cheerfully appearance and the hotel front desk staff able to speak English and we have been surprised by the hotel management to upgrade our twin room to a premium room due to twin room is fully occupied. The premium room is superb big with wonderful interior, the premium room able to stay for 4pax is super big hotel room with a dressing area, big bath room, 2 queen size bed and a Korea style living room, love it.
We were so happy for the free upgrade as our fast impression of Hotel PJ. We booked 3 beds'room for 3 adults, and the staff upgrade us to family suite on Ladies's floor. What the big Christmas's gift! 4 beds, a huge bathroom and individual make up room. 4 masks in first day, so sweet :) Just a little black dot during the stay, due to the piping problem, the water from the bathroom cannot be went through properly. The staff was very helpful to clean up the wet floor and make it work again. I highly recommend this hotel to others, it close to the 2nd station for the Airport Bus as I saw some people have to wait for a long line after Myeong. And I would like to say if Hotel PJ will consider to build up a escalator rather than that stairs when you back to the hotel after walk along 1/2 of Seoul for all day long, it would be Perfect choice in Seoul!
The staff are friendly and attentive.”
I stayed at 2 hotel during my trip to seoul. I preferred PJ hotel than another. Even though another hotel is at myeongdong and closer to shopping area, I feel that PJ hotel is better. Their service was fast. I called to the counter during midnight to request for a bottle opener, they came within a few minute and the staff helped me to opened it. I took the twins room and requested for ladies floor, managed to get ladies floor in the end without additional charges! The lift is those that you need to scan your card and you can only go to the floor that your room is at. I feel that it is very safe. There are a few food stall nearby that open till late. Would definitely choose PJ hotel again during my next trip.
Quick flyby tour of Seoul's highlights”
I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. It was easy to get to (though the approach road through narrow bylanes from the airport shuttle dropoff point was a bit confusing and smelly). The location is great for shopping fans - close to Myeong-dong, Namdaemun, Dongdaemun. Not that far from the subway lines (line #4?) to get to other places, including Seoul Station. I honestly didn't go that far from the hotel in my couple days in Seoul. The front desk were very friendly, knowledgeable and conversant in English. One of them helped me reserve a ticket for the NANTA show at the MyeongDong theater (so-so show). There's an ATM just outside, including a Global ATM station (that takes foreign debit cards). My room was clean and comfortable. Not a great TV channel selection - only 2 stations with English programming (not counting the kids' channels).
We love our stay at PJ Myeongdong”
Pj Myeongdong is really good. The location's not bad tho. Near to 2 metro subway stations, Euljiro 3 and Chungmuro stations. Near to station for airport bus (Chungmuro station). But please be noted, Pj Myeongdong aren't located at Myeongdong public market, u can reach myeongdong market with metro subway. Our room is very big and clean, Bed are big. Bathroom are very comfort too, big and the most important are very clean. Theres a laptop with internet connection at our room. we can use it n relaxing at our room. There's a convenience store around the hotel. Oh yeah, the most important things too, there's a water dispenser too in front off our room which is very good. Over all, PJ Myeongdong is doing a really good job. We love our stay at PJ Myeongdong..
Better than a five star hotel”
Completely satisfied. I didn't have any information on this hotel before. I just happened to get a good deal through Agoda. But everything was beyond my expectation. In fact it was better than the five star H hotel I stayed before, which was not so much friendly, everything was extra charged, and yet the price was unbelievable high. About PJ, the room was clean and spacious, (and they provide you with free wifi, and also some extra complements like facial masks for girls), the staffs were polite, the food was decent (you can get a morning buffet at a discounted price). Also I feel safe thanks to the ladies only floor and the corridor doors operated with a room key. The location was not bad, near the subway stations, and an airport shuttle stop, near the city center - Myeongdong. Actually, if you don't mind walking and like to save some money for transportation, it is a very a good choice because everything is within the walking distance. Lastly, it is affordable, if you can find a good deal through Agoda!
I stayed in Hotel PJ twice on each end of a week stay in Korea. I was very impressed with the lobby and the staff: they all spoke good English, were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were good, clean and big enough. I think I was expecting a bit more based on how much the lobby and the staff had impressed me before getting into my room. Also, the TV is unusually small for a hotel in Korea, but again, this is only a minor complaint. Finally, a lot of people that have reviewed this hotel have complained about the location. That is, to be frank, ridiculous! From the airport there is a limo-bus available that takes you on a lap of Seoul's hotels, and one of the stops is labeled 'Hotel PJ'. The bus number is 6015(I think!) and leaves from just outside the arrivals part of Incheon. It is a short walk from where the bus drops you off, but this is easy enough to work out from the map close to the stop. Basically, stay on the same side of the road that the bus drops you at, face KB Bank and just try to walk in a straight line for about five minutes(go the right side of the KB Bank building). The hotel is also about five minutes walk from either Chungmuro or Eujiro 3 Subway stops(same line). Chungmuro is particularly useful for getting to all parts of Seoul, so really this hotel is quite central. The other complaint I would make is that the computers in the business centre need a good overhaul as they're pretty slow and unreliable.
convenient hotel located in the middle of the city”
I spent six nights at PJ hotel and it was a pleasant one. We took the subway from Incheon airport and stop at Chungmuro Station and get out from exit 1 to get to the hotel. They have directions on their website how to get to their hotel from each airport. It takes about 10-15 minutes walk from the station. If you have many luggages with you, I'd suggest you take the shuttle bus limousine, it will cost you more than subway 10,000 won/person, however still better than taxi. Taxi fare is really expensive here in Seoul. From the moment we arrived the staff was very helpful and friendly, they helped us with our luggages. PJ hotel is located in the middle of Myongdong and Dongdaemun area, luckily PJ hotel have shuttle bus service that runs every 15 minutes to those area, and it is easily accessible for everyone. The room was clean and good enough to rest your body after a long day exploring seoul. We took the triple bed family room, and believe me when I say the room is Huge. Other than that all the service was very good, their lobby staff speaks good english too. We took shuttle bus from Chungmuro Station exit 8 to the airport, cost us 10.000 won/person. Anyway don't look anywhere else, PJ Hotel is a guarantee place to stay if you're going to visit Seoul.
Comfortable & convenient hotel to stay”
its superb comfortable hotels, good location, just 3 minutes walk to Chungmuro Subway Station & 4 minutes walk to Euljiro3(sam)-ga subway station. PJ Hotel is nearby Myeongdong area is about 20 minutes walks from PJ Hotel to Myeongdong area. Besides that, PJ Hotels do provide free shuttle bus to Myeongdong & Dongdaemun shopping area. The hotel staff is very friendly, and the hotel front desk staff able to speak English and upgrade our twin room to a premium room due to twin room is fully occupied. The premium room is superb big with wonderful interior, the premium room able to stay for 4pax.
6 wonderful nights ”
A clean and comfortable room with 3 single beds. Big and child friendly balcony. There is no aircon in winter but we were able to open the balcony door for the cold air to come in which is much better to aircon. The staff were friendly and helpful. Fast check-in and Check-outs Free shuttle bus to Myeongdong and Dongdaemun. Easy access to subway station line 2. A short walk from the airport bus 6001 stop from Best Western Premier Kukdo from Incheon or Gimpo Airport. There are many korean family restaurants around the hotel. We tried one of the BBQ restaurant and it was good. Will definitely go back to PJ Hotel if I return to Seoul and I will definitely recommend PJ hotel to those on free and easy.
Great hotel for the price and location”
PJ Hotel is a great hotel for the price and location. The double bed room we stayed in was clean and the staff was very friendly. They can speak English, so if you don't know Korean you will be okay. Like other reviewers have said, you have to walk down a random alley to get to the hotel, but it's a very short walk. We had no trouble finding the subway, and Myeongdong is only about a 10-15 minute walk. Along the way, you can stop and get coffee at various cafes like Cafe Bene, Paris Baguette, and Coffee Bean. I highly recommend the hotel based on the price and location. It was hard to find a better deal in this area, and I was happy with my decision once we found the hotel and settled into our room. The only downside is that there isn't anything active right outside of the hotel at night, but thankfully lots of things are just a short walk away.
Spacious comfortable room & efficient shuttle service”
It was very pleasant to saty in PJ, staff are well converse in English, friendly and helpful. The room is spacious and very comfortable & clean. The shuttle service makes our Seoul trip so easy to commute around. It ferry us from the hotel to MyeongDong Street, KwangJang Market, Dongdaemun etc. As transport is very expensive in Seoul, this service also a huge saver for us. Besides that, just take us 5mins walk to airport limousines station and Chungmoro subway station. Will definitely choose this hotel again if I go back to Seoul.

good location, staffs is nice”
the hotel is in a good location, you can walk around 8 mins to Euljiro-3 rd station or Chungmuro station. the staffs in the hotel are all nice, and helpful. and the driver of the hotel shuttle bus is kind and helpful too, helped us to carry the baggages to the bus and carry down from the bus. the room is big and clean. will recommend to stay in PJ hotel especially with kids. but the only thing can improve is the time slot for shuttle bus to Myeong Dong if can stop after 9pm and Dong Dae Mun if can provide in day time will be nicer and more convenient for us. If can provide us the time schedule of the shuttle bus to return to Hotel will be good too.
