"We recently stayed at PJ's Place and it was beyond excellent. It's set in a quiet, secluded area, not far from several gay venues. The rooms are clean, comfortable and designed to make guests feel exactly that - like guests, not customers. Peter and Jiab are terrific hosts and Jiab proved himself a reliable, informative guide. Breakfast is cooked to order, without a buffet, and there's a wide choice. The staff are young, cute and friendly. We'd go back in a heartbeat." -- Oluanpi, Oct 1, 2012
