Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The location is excellent. Within 5 minutes of subway station, 7 11 across the road, coffee tea and bean leaf around the back of apartments. We loved the area that the Orakai was in. Many restaurants and cute litte Korean stores within walking distance. The rooms were spacious and even though we didn't cook , it was great to have full size fridge, microwave etc The desk staff were friendly, efficient and obliging; although we required minimal from them during our stay. We did however receive a later checkout when we asked due to our flight times so this was much appreciated as we were not charged for it. House keeping were spot on and bathroom supplies were always restocked etc We did pay for breakfast for the 2 weeks we stayed and used it perhaps half of the mornings of our stay as like other reviews have stated, it is satisfactory but we didnt want scrambled eggs every morning. There was toast and cereal available with yoghurt as well as apples and bananas. If you were only staying for a few days its worth including for convenience. We used the pool twice but it was closed on many occasions due to Orakai not being able to staff a lifeguard ( i am assuming from what was written) If we return to Seoul next year ( our daughter is working there) I would rebook the Orakai for its convenience and home away from home comfort

We stayed here for eight nights for a family trip. The suite was very clean, well maintained, and very comfortable. The housekeeping staff is excellent. We stayed in a two-bedroom: the master bedroom had a king bed and the other was a double. Having a washer/dryer, a kitchen, and a little office nook made our stay convenient.
Location is awesome. We loved being in walking distance to lots of shops, restaurants, street food, and subway stations. We ended up getting the breakfast option for the convenience but there are grocery stores and lots of bakeries nearby. The fitness center is well-equipped and clean. We will definitely stay here again!

We visited from England in April 2023. We stayed in a 3 bed suite. The apartment was large and clean. Not very personal and a few bumps and scrapes but suited our needs. Housekeeping came and did basic cleaning each day - towels changed, swept and changed bins. I really appreciated that as it was less to think about. Beds comfy but only 1 pillow each so had to ask for more - supplied straight away.

I think the hotel is being renovated so lots of the facilities were shut.

Excellent location right in the middle of insadong and the palaces. Couldn’t get better.

Brilliant pool (if a little cold) and lifeguards always on duty.

I am ataying in a suite.
The room is on average but good enough to stay there.
The service is very limited.
They promise to have a continental brekfast where the food variety is very limited.
Everyday the same food bread, scrumbled eggs, 1 dish which changes every day. Peanut butter, 1 jam, 1 green salad, cornflakes, apples and banana which are not fresh. 1 juice no other choices.
The room service is limited to if you call the frontdesk your call might be accepted or somebody will drop the call.
The aircon is not working also if promised the turn ot on since it is centralized no remote in your room the 🌡 goes up although all windows are closed.
Just empty promises with no changes or benefits for the customers.

I would not recommend anybody to visit this hotel if you want a very limited service you might go for it

This is the best breakfast which they offer

If you want eggs cooked differently you need to pay 15000 kwon

Sunny side up, boiled eggs etc.

Orakai Suites are the best place to stay in town. Clean, modern rooms, friendly staff, indoor pool, gym, all the amenities necessary. The hotel is conveniently located steps away from the bustling Insa-dong street, but also only a few short minutes to the new hip area of Ikson-dong. It is also close to three subway lines, and walking distance (albeit a little longer) from Kwanghwamun. I can't recommend this place enough!

Large, clean spacious apartment. We are staying in a two bedroom with our daughter. The apartment has all you need to enjoy your stay. The gym is very well equipped, and the pool, whilst a little cold is a good place for a swim. The apartments are in a great location, two subway stops close by, not far from attractions and loads of places to eat. We were very grateful for an early checkin after a long trip to Seoul, and the receptionist who checked us in was very friendly. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.

This place was in a great location, was spacious and reasonably priced. Additionally, it had a really nice gym which we had access to. We were traveling with our two kids (14 and 13) and each child had their own bedroom. Additionally, the place had a refrigerator which allowed us to buy plenty of snacks and drinks.

The place was not fancy, but it was certainly clean and adequately equipped. The service was terrific, but not all that friendly. For example, they had signs posted indicating they would not assist with taxis, airport transportation and you couldn't have drinks in the lobby. But if you don't need any assistance from the hotel, this is a terrific option.

This is my one of the most terrifying experiences ever , i never ever saw a bad hotel as this hotel , i swear to god , am writing while am setting in dark with no electricity and no air conditioning at all , since we arrived we got to know that there will be no AC for the 5 days starting from the day we arrived, we had no choice to change the hotel as we booked this hotel in advance to avoid the high rates as we were on budget , imagine staying in a hotel which you payed for it and no AC provided, we had to open the windows while sleeping and still it was soo hot , and a broken toilet and a dusty rooms with died bugs , after we fought for it , they changed the room for us , an guess whaaaat !!!!! We woke up finding a notice under the door saying that there will be no electricity for the next two days starting from 11 PM to 3 AM , we had to come back to the hotel as nothing here is open after 10 specially for as us muslims , only bars , while coming back i got stuck in the elevator which been guided by the maintenance guy to use rather than the main , i got stuck in the elevator and i was terrified , once i got out i used the stairs while carrying a dozen of water of course because they dont provide it and had to go all the way to 20th floor , on floor 16th i saw the engineering guys and they were laughing and saying that oh you are having water and they asked me to use the same eleven which i got stuck in , they didn’t even tried to help even though that they saw me hardly breathing as am an asthmatic, please don’t waste you money here , they don’t care about any service or customer experience, trust my words there is nothing positive about this place !!!!!

Checked in after staying at Somerset Palace for a week.
Location is great as Insadong is conveniently situated to explore many popular destinations in Seoul. Hotel facility is sub par. Taped up carpets in the lobby due yo elevator repair, things just look tired overall. They must have used a special angle to photograph the bathroom because it actually is tiny and cramped. Went down to the spa area and I felt I was back in the 70’s. No hot water in the hot bath and only dry sauna. No decent shampoo or lotion that other hotels supply in the bath/spa in Seoul. The shower stalls look so old and not so clean to a point creepy. I could jot wait to get out.
No free water bottles, laundry soap etc. they supply nothing.
I am staying in a two bedroom unit and it is spacious. Other than that it is depressing looking everywhere. Signage for what people should not do or what they would not do for the guests. They don’t call a taxi for you, don’t do this or that.
Somerset Palace was so much more well run and clean. Their staff was top notch and breakfast was lovely and the facility was in great condition while not new. Go to Somerset.

We have stayed here a few times in the past. It is excellent for a long term stay or if you require more space. We had a 2 bedroom for 3 people. Close to shops and 3 metro stations. Pool and gym are good and included in the tariff. Breakfast is basic but adequate with scrambled and boiled eggs. 3 cereals and some apples and juices and breads. (Nothing fancy like smoked salmon or pastries etc though they did have bagels and croissants). We found the beds comfortable. Big TV in the living room. A small store across the road. I noticed lots of food deliveries from local restuarants in the evenings. Restuarants are many in the area.

I’m in the same position and the hotel is not giving me a refund. Would have been good publicity for them if they had but obviously it’s money that counts for them, not people’s health.
