Room was very clean and well equiped. Staffs were very friendly.
Swimming pool was very big and fantastic.
You won't get better service in other hotel or residences with this reasonalble price.
I will stay this place when I visit HCMC again.

The experience of staying here is very comfortable, there is clean room with clean sports equipment. I use the room of the washing machine, quite easy to use. There are also practical kitchen equipment, including electric stove and oven. The quality of the web is so good that I can work while I am on vacation.
My favorite is that clean pool, where the sport is kind of enjoying

Facility was great for the family - apartment with cooking facility and washer/dryer, and large swimming pool.

However, if you want to visit district 1 - which most tourists do - it is in a really bad location. The offers only one shuttle bus into town in the morning, and doesn't collect. This means you need to return by taxi. We had to direct several taxi drivers on how to get there, as it is not easy to cross the highway back to the hotel. I recommend using green taxis only as we had the least issues with these drivers. The trip also takes 35-45 minutes, depending on the time of day.

Don't use their bus for collection from the airport. A green taxi is a third of the cost.

The final annoying thing was checking out - we had to wait until housekeeping checked the room so that they could ensure we hadn't stolen or broken anything.

These annoyances detract from the facility, and I'm rating it accordingly. If I was ever in Saigon again, I wouldn't stay here.

Dear Karin S,

Thank you for your review on Somerset Vista. It has been our pleasure to be able to provide you with a comfortable and enjoyable stay experience for you and your family, with good facilities and a well-equipped serviced apartment. We understand that the location has detracted you from considering us again. Our sister properties located in District 1 would be situated closer to the tourist destinations, which we also recommend for residents who prefer to be closer to the city centre. Somerset Vista is located in District 2, in a largely high-end residential area of Ho Chi Minh City.

The inner roads parallel to the Hanoi Highway are starting to open up, with better roads and connectivity to District 1. It will take some time for drivers to be familiar with the roads around and we are confident that the improved roads will work towards a more developed District 2 in the near future. As for taxis, we highly recommend Vinasun taxis which can be widely found in Ho Chi Minh City, and are more familiar with roads due to their extensive coverage over the city. Airport transfers arranged by us provide an ease of mind to travellers who may visit Ho Chi Minh City for the first time, but for seasoned travellers, taxis may be a good option.

With regard to the check out process, please be assured that we will look into this and ensure that it will be smooth and more efficient than before. Thank you for the feedback as this allows us to constantly improve on our service standards.

Nonetheless, we hope that you will still come back to visit us or our sister properties in District 1 again in your next trip to Ho Chi Minh City.

Best Regards,
Joel Ho (Mr.)
Asst. Residence Manager

I went here for business trip. first I thought that I will just going to go stay there for sleep. but when I explore the place, I found this place really comfortable, the view is good, complete facility, love the pool and Im really enjoyed it. the only minus thing are the location. it's not closed with tourist area and so far didn't found any public transportation except taxi and the that the sommerset provide. but I saw train construction so it would be great if it's finished. also the taxi driver & local driver were having difficulty to find the place at first. I need to show the map first

In our Serviced Residence, we provide a home where our guests can relax after a busy day of work, be it for a short stay or even a long stay.

Yes, we are looking forward to the completion of the metro line and we hope that the situation will improve in the future. On behalf the team at Somerset Vista, I warmly welcome you to stay with us again and hope to see you soon.

this is my first experience with the Somerset service apartment, and I was impressed and enjoyed my 4 day stays here. We had a 2 bedroom suite, with large living room and dining space, The master bedroom had its own bath, with separate tub and shower, as well as a large closet. The kitchen was clean, and modern. It came with microwave, oven, all the necessities a full kitchen should have. All the glassware, dining ware, spoon, forks, and knife sets were clean, shinning , and neatly arranged for use. The frig was clean, stocked with water, free of odor, and the wash and dryer came with detergent for immediate use.

It was a great value, and a wonderful deal. The facility hosts a large expat community, there were 3 pools on the 3rd floor, well kept, and very nicely maintained. Down on the first floor, there is a small supermarket, a bit pricey, but, very convenient, and next door, is a Starbuck, along with a few other cafe, for a quick bite to eat. Five minutes by taxi, is a Mega Mall,with food court, and large supermarket, as well as many restaurants. And in the back of the Somerset complex, and on the side street, you will find local street food, with Pho, ice coffee, sandwich, or Avocado shake. The local Pho was delicious and very inexpensive.

The housekeeping part, is just like any other major hotel, the room is made up daily, with fresh towels, and amenities replenished. The worst part about this hotel, is that it is in District 2, a bit distance from the downtown area. And the only road leading in and out, is muddy, and flooded whenever there is rain. But, taxi is always available, so the transportation option was not too bad.

Overall, it was a great experience, comfort, at a great value for the money.

Dear touchdownjj,

What a wonderful review of Somerset Vista! It certainly brings a smile to all of us here. We are glad that you had a great experience with us and enjoyed the facilities within the estate too. As a serviced residence, we seek to provide a home away from home experience where our guests and residents can have an ease of mind, in a conducive environment to work and relax as well.

We understand that the roads leading up to Somerset Vista in District 2 can be a little uneven and sometimes confusing but we hope that the situation will improve after the road beside Somerset Vista is opened. District 2 is located away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Ho Chi Minh City and in a largely residential area, but still well connected to other districts. As the rainy season approaches, the downpours cool down the hot sunny weather Ho Chi Minh City is known for, and gives us a little respite from the heat, but also brings with it the muddy and flooded roads.

Well, we hope to be able to welcome you and your family back again for another fantastic time with us and recreate another positive stay experience for you. Once again, thank you for your amazing review.

Best Regards,
Joel Ho (Mr.)
Asst. Residence Manager
