Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

Hotel PJ Myeongdong garners appreciation for its strategic location near subways and dining options, coupled with amenities like in-room clothes steamers and shuttle services that enhance guest convenience. The atmosphere of cleanliness and comfort extends to its rooms, which are noted for being family-friendly and tidy, thanks to attentive janitorial staff. While some guests have mentioned room maintenance could be improved, the overall sentiment is positive, with special praise for the hotel's service and helpful staff. However, opinions on value vary, with the quality of amenities and service occasionally falling short of expectations for some.

While the rooms isn't exactly the newest or nicest it is sufficient, the staff were friendly and tried to help the best they can. There's a laundry room available for guests to use, so you don't have to hunt for any laundromats should you need one. The shuttle bus service provided was good and even without it the stations were pretty close. It will be helpful if there's an indication to exactly where can you wait for the shuttle bus once it has left the hotel and proceed to head to other locations.

We had a comfortable stay. Clean and decent size of room had everything you need including refrigerator with bottle of water. Nespresso coffee machine and drip coffee and tea. There was a machine sanitize clothes or get rid of wrinkles. TV had some English channels but hard to use because instruction was in korean. I really liked each floor has separate door so only room card holder can access to it. There are microwave free water and ice on each floor. Myeongdong is walking distance but their shuttle service is very helpful especially during cold winter. It only runs few hours every 30min though. Breakfast is $17 if you pay there. It was good for few days. There are 3 metro stations less than 5 min. If you're coming from Airport use Chungmuro metro station. Airport shuttle drops you off there too. You will see Kentucky fried chicken use this road to get to hotel. Road is a little bit dark but very safe and will pass local restaurants. We used airport shuttle very early in the morning from this station and it was very smooth. (Bus doesn't stick to schedule so be there earlier) Their house keeping staff were the best. Hotel check out is late so that gives very short time for them to clean your room. Our room was not cleaned yet late afternoon but they did everything they could for us to have comfortable stay. It is not in the middle of shopping area but location is very convenient and very peaceful.

I love the spacious room and it's definitely a plus for families with young children. There is a LG Tromm Styler in the room to dry or sterilise the clothes. Absolutely love this though I wish it can fit it more clothes.

Based on our travels as family and myself as business traveler, we stay at many different types of hotels.
However, PJ hotel has set a new bottom level.
The room I booked on Expedia was big with a big area with chairs and free living space and two queen beds. (Family Deluxe room). What I’ve got in real, were a double bed and a single bed.
I even didn’t know where to place our bags.
As I’ve asked the front desk, I was told; yes the internet promoted rooms do differ from the real rooms!!!!
Hey, are you cheating your customers!?

I stayed in room 922;
Underneath the bed and behind there are old molded food left overs and huge layers of dust, as you can see in the pictures. Which isn’t nice at all, specially when Suffering on a dust allergy, which is also the asthma trigger of my daughter.
Bathroom is minimalistic equipped.
And the outside area of the hotel isn’t the best surrounding.

Staff is friendly and the location is somehow central. With a free shuttle bus to the central shopping area.

I can’t recommend you this place.
There are other better hotels for the same price available, e.g. L7 hotel

When we first arrived, we were informed that we could check in earlier as they happened to have a room ready, only on the condition that we write a review for Hotel PJ Myeongdong on trip advisor. Needless to say, at that point in time, we didn’t have enough information about the hotel except for the polite staff managing the check in counter. However, things weren’t as expected over the next couple of days.

IMPT NOTES TO TRAVELLERS:
1. Getting to the hotel wasn’t as convenient as what the reviews have pointed out. The hotel was located in a secluded area, and you have to walk along a dimly-lit stretch of road adjacent to a construction site, before getting to the nearest side gate. For their own safety, I would strongly recommend female travellers/solo travellers against staying at this hotel. Furthermore, the frequency of the shuttle bus to Myeongdong is once every hour, so it isn’t a feasible means of transportation especially for travellers who miss the bus.

2. There was a signage at the side gates, clearly stating that the gates will be closed after midnight. We hence made an effort to arrive at the side gates by 10ish, expecting the gates to be open. On the first night, this worked out well as the side gate was opened when we arrived around 10.15pm. However, to our dismay, the gate was closed the next night when we arrived at around the same timing. When the security guard spotted us, he immediately turned off the lights. After many attempts to catch his attention, he reluctantly walked over and made gestures that we couldn’t comprehend due to our language barrier. We asked to speak to his manager, who apologised and said that the signage was wrong and that they close the side gates at 10pm. He also mentioned that they will change the signs immediately. Needless to say, upon checking out the next day, the signage still stayed midnight when we checked it. So please don’t be misled like us, and reach the gates before 10pm otherwise you’d be stranded at the dark alley next to the construction site.

On a positive note, we really appreciate the professionalism of the manager who came down to the side gate to direct us to walk to the main gate, and met us at the lobby on the second level to explain about the closing hours of the side gate and apologise for the inconvenience. However, we are still really puzzled by the universal common understanding of “midnight”, and will appreciate if this could be made clearer in the future to ensure the safety of travellers, which I believe is a priority to the hotel.

It was a pleasant experience there.
The hotel was huge and fully organized.
There was a small problem when I checked in that the room was not ready because I asked a humidifier. But I was too tired to wait and asked them to change the room even there’s no humidifier. And the receptionist could organize it again with very nice attitude.
Everyone was so helpful during the stay.

Trip with my 18 year old daughter. We stayed in both the standard twin and deluxe twin. Standard twin room was a little dated. Deluxe twin came with a LG clothes steamer, shared microwave on the floor, and free soda/cider. The AC system was also quieter in the Deluxe twin room. The area is older and a bit commercial/industrial, but really conveniently located to multiple subway lines.

Hope that rooms can be cleaner, at the corner of the beds I could see dust and hairs. Everything else was amazing. The staff was friendly and approachable. I would definitely revisit the hotel whenever I visit Seoul. Checking in and out of the hotel was hassle free. Moreover, there were bus services from the hotel to Myeongdong which is very convenient for my friends and I. Breakfast in the hotel is amazing. To my surprise, there was quite a various of food selection to choose from. The hotel staff was also kind to give my friend and I discounts coupon for our breakfast. It was very affordable to us.

Had to book over the phone, reservation was smooth and well handled. Note check in is 3pm so if you arrive early, there is storage lockers so you can tour the area. We had a family room, great for 2 adults and 2 teenagers; two showers makes getting ready easier, room is warm as it is freezing outside, comfortable beds, quite, good amenities but would have liked a microwave to heat food in the room. Need more hooks in the bathroom only one to hang up towels. Close access to all the tourist sites, local restaurants and convenient stores. Staff accommodating to requests.
