Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a business trip. Hotel rooms are a bit dated already and could use some renovation. Breakfast was very basic but acceptable. Location is good as it is near restaurants and mall areas. Hotel does not have a business center and staff was not helpful when I needed to print some documents. Great...

Nice comfortable, cosy, tastefully furnished and clean apartment. Front desk Staff were superb, efficient , knowledgeable and very friendly. SALUTE ! Breakfast was very basic. They absolutely can improve on the fruits varieties. More delectable menu for noodles. The porridge was lousy. Bread and pastries can be considered just okay. The hotel apartment is quite isolated from the others. Although...

Stayed for two nights with collegaues to attend an exhibition. Overall the Somerset served the purpose of our stay well. The rooms are a bit tired around the edges and so they will need to start a refurbishment programme soon. The breakfast was basic but adequate. Coffee without sugar automatically added would be a bonus! I would stay again if...
