The hotel feels luxurious and the room has everything you could need during your stay. It was very comfortable and the bed,especially, was enormous! Lovely decor, clean, spacious room and a good range of English channels on the TV. The only slight disappointment would be the shower. The floor doesn't slope enough so you're left with a cold puddle of... More

The pool and roof garden are the best features of this hotel - access to the roof is a little awkward as you have to get someone to let you up there but it's got lots of stylish furniture and great views across the city. The pool has a quite magical light display which is particularly great at night -... More

I chose this hotel based on the ratings on various travel sites; well, I have not been disapointed at all! My one bedroom suite offering a great view over the city was big and very comfortable.

Great hotel, very spacious rooms. We had got connecting rooms. So our living room was massive. They had kitchens in each room. We were vegetarian and they had arranged noodles and fried rice for us which was great. They even gave us a late checkout with request.

It was good but most taxi drivers would not know the exact location of Somerset. therefore, be prepared with a little navigation help. Somerset is convenient with 7-11 at the ground floor and some food options. there are good club house facilities as well. The breakfast was a little too simple and less variety.
