“A Somerset Fan”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I loved Somerset apartments wherever i go. The apartment here was as complete & big as all the others i've been into.

We didn't hit the pool though. Was always overcrowded. Must be the super hot weather.

I guess the only thing i can say is the language barrier here in Vietnam makes it hard for communication.

If u guys want to go for HALAL private tour to the Mekong River, this hotel offers really good one with an ok pricing. The lunch included was what i can say fulfilling.

Room Tip: There is not exactly a good room as this is a town area with not really a view but great for a big f...

If you are travelling with a family to Ho Chi Minh, I definitely recommend staying at Somerset. There are 2 Somerset properties in HCH and we stayed at

No. 8A Nguyen Binh Khiem St., District 1
Tel. (848) 8228 899

The apartment has a reasonably sized living-dining room. It has a kitchen, with basic amenities. It was a luxury to find a laundry area inside the apartment, complete with a washing machine.

We enjoyed our stay at Somerset because of the location... far from the noisy and crowded shopping area. Breakfast is enjoyable and relaxing since dining area is located near the pool and garden. Location was not a hindrance to shopping. It is very easy to find a taxi in the area. Further, it is in a safe and clean neighborhood.

Breakfast was always a treat since fresh fruit juices (try the guava juice) and good coffee were served.

I stayed for three weeks at the sumerset hotel in HCMC and enjoyed every day of it. For a longer business trip it is excelent to have a washing machine at hand (less packing needed) and a convenient location in district 1 close to the business area and still on a walking distance to HCMC town centre.
There is a gym and it has what you need when traveling and there is a nice pool if you prefer to swim. Every room has it's own router so Internet is stabile (yet not so super fast).
Staff is nice and speak good english and they will help you out if/when you need help.
Rooms get cleaned and beds get made every day - apart from that your apartment is yours.

My husband and I were travelling with my parents. In the spacious apartment we were able to share our trip in a way that you can't in two separate hotel rooms. It was the perfect way to travel with another adult couple. I also highly recommend it for families. Other pros: good location, the pool was great, service was very friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was a convenient and easy way to start the day.

Some reviewers noted the hotel was a little "out of the way". We really didn't feel like this was the case at all. Everything we wanted to do/see in District 1 was just a short walk or taxi ride away.

I booked a 2 brm apartment for two adults and two kids but was given three brm for the same price. Not sure why but it gave us a bit more space which was great. The apartment was clean, large and well appointed with washer/dryer, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, tv/DVD player. A swimming pool downstairs was great for kids. The cafe served breakfast (2 were included in the price of apartment, extras 120,000 dong ea). The apartment seemed a bit different from pics online - a bit dated but overall pretty good. Just a little disappointed as it was not quite what I was expecting. The location wasn't that great- I assumed that if it was in district 1 it was close to everything, not really realizing how big district 1 was. It is on the outskirts and I would have preferred to be closer to the main city centre so as to be able to walk most places. I should have paid more attention to the precise location before booking. Having said that a taxi will only cost $5 - 8 depending where u want to go. The staff were very helpful and it was easy to get a taxi from the front desk whenever we wanted. Overall it was a good experience and great value for a family.

First time in Vietnam and spent 3 days at the Somerset. Beautifully appointed and very friendly staff. Apartments are on a grand scale, very relaxing and a great homely feel about them. They have everything covered from TV to washing machines and a great size kitchen. The pool area is really nice, with gym and tennis court near by. The food was great at the restaurant, and I really enjoyed the breakfast, could pick and choose how I wanted my eggs cooked. Went on night time walks in the area and felt very safe, they have an excellent valet service and it was never a problem getting a taxi.

Stayed here in December with my Family; we were on our yearly holiday..rooms big; they have a small kids playground, and there is a grocery store right on the first floor..excellent choices for food in this store as well; if youre living in China, you will see that this shop is better stocked than most in Mainland China!..

They have a nice pool as well..good value, would stay here again.
