“Good hotel at a mediocre location”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We stayed at Somerset Residences for 2 nights during our stay in Bangkok.The apartment was very spacious and well maintained.It had a big living room,a kitchenette and a master bedroom with an attached balcony (with a good view of Bangkok Skyline).The bed was really comfortable.

The breakfast spread was good.The salad section was really fresh. But apart from regular bread and croissants; not that many options for vegetarians. My husband, however, a core non-vegetarian had a blast :-)

The hotel is not walkable from the nearest BTS station (Sala Daeng). It is around 5-7 mins ride by a TukTuk and usually costs around 50 Baht. However,the hotel provides a free TukTuk(9 am to 6 pm) to Sala Daeng, where one has a lot of options for street food,restaurants and shopping.

Overall a very decent property with courteous staff.

We are currently staying here and so far very good . The room is quite large with a very comfortable bed and a large living area. The buffet breakfast has a large range and with a egg station. Also the restaurant has great food at reasonable prices. The shower on the bath is the only downer but overall I highly recommend this as a place to stay. The staff are extremely helpful and their English quite good.There is 2 stations 10 mom walk or a complimentary tuk tuk.

I have been countless times at Somerset over the years during my stays in Bangkok. It is not the best hotel in town but it is undoubtedly one of the best value for money hotel. The location at the heart of Sathorn in a relatively quiet place is very good, and the rooms are very large and well equipped for their price. This being said, the breakfast quality needs to be improved and check-in procedures tend to be annoyingly slow. Very friendly and efficient staff. Good level of cleanliness and maintenance.

I've travelled extensively through Asia and this has to be one of the nicest hotels if you are on business. My apartment was clean, large and had all the facilities needed. Fridge, washer/dryer, sink, stove, microwave, dining room, tv, vcr/dvd (in lounge) another tv in king size bedroom. Shower over bath (not a huge bath but big enough), toilet sink, wardrobe and personal safe. Small balcony as well
Best of all, the rooms were quiet. I couldn't hear noise from any other residents or the lifts (which my room backed onto).,
A fully equipped gym, pool and fabulous dining room to top it off. Staff were exceptional and nothing was too much trouble.
FIre alarm went off night (I could smell the burnt toast fro the next room) and within 60 seconds, orange coated fire fighters were on scene.
Breakfast was a la carte and catered for all nationalities with plenty of food. Order your own omelette, poached eggs- whatever you fancy.
Taxi to shopping centres cost about 80 BHT which is around $3 Australian Dollars and takes 10-15 minutes depending on traffic. TukTuk takes 5 minutes, costs 300 BHT and take your life in your own hands but ever so much fun.
Room cost around $70 a night so I was thrilled with that considering it catered for my needs,

I always try to stay at one of the Somerset Properties. Park Suanplu is more intimate than the much larger Lake Point and is in a very comfortable neighborhood with bakeries, eateries and clubs on the road in front of the hotel and walking distance to MK Gold, Patpong and other shopping areas and the sky train. Staff is very well trained and everything is well run and all the staff are congenial. Very pleasant place to stay.

Our daughter was working in Mae Sot and contracted Dengue Fever and was transferred to Bangkok - we wanted a 2 bedroom apartment from when she was discharged from hospital and Somerset Part was the perfect place. Huge appartment, very friendly staff, lovely pool, good breakfast, very reasonable rates. We knew the area so knew our way around - easy to get to the main areas - Would recommend
