“couldn't wish for a better place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Myself and 3 friends travelled to Singapore for a 10 day stay. We stayed at Somerset in a 2 bedroom apartment and couldn't have wished for anything better. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, TV and airconditioner, hairdryer etc. They were always kept lovely and clean and large enough not to be in each others pockets.

Buffet Breaksfast was included and had a variety of things for everyone.

As for the pool area what a way to relax after a hard day sight seeing. You could use the pool area from early morning until 10:00pm.

Best location. Somerset is central to everything. MRT station across the road, bus stops around the corner and taxi ramps 5 minute walk away. minutes walk from Clarke Quay which during the day was a pleasant relaxing area, and at night was a hub of activity. There was always something different to see or do. Plenty of different restuarants to try out, or if exhausted from a days outing you could get it to take back to your room.

As it was so central, it was in walking distance to a lot of the areas, Chinatown, Orchard Rd., Marina Bay.etc, or an inexpensive taxi trip. Various shopping complexes in the area along with food courts if you are looking for a quick inexpensive meal. Added bonus is a supermarket next door down in the B1 area.

As for the staff at Somerset you couldn't wish for any better. Silvan and all the staff were always happy to assist in anyway they could. Nothing was too much trouble, and they were always ingterested in how your day went, how you enjoyed it, and what you were up to the next day. It was lovely to be greated every time you came or went with such happy smiling faces.

We all agreed that in all the places we have travelled to that the Silvan and all the staff for the most friendly and helpful we have come across.

Even though there was construction going on next door, this didn't bother us at all, quite the opposite. Before going down for breakfast we would watch the hive of activity going on at the site, try and work out what they were doing and after a full day out we enjoyed checking out their progress.

We plan to return to Singapore in a couple of years to check out how the Gardens on the Bay has expanded and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Located right in Clarke Quay, in day time, you can enjoy the nice and quiet riverside. At night, the area transform into a nice clubbing area with many choices on bars and restaurants. Live band and street performance is just at the corner.

On transportation, MRT station (Clarke Quay NE5) is just in 5mins walk. River taxi is at doorway. If you like, you can walk alone the river to the Merlion and Marina Bay. It just talk arround 30-40mins and the view is great. Also walking to China Town and From Airport to hotel, if take Taxi in non-peak hours, costed less than SDG25.

Hotel room is great and comfortable . Clean and large. Breakfast is ok, just at 9am, too crowed and refill is a bit slow. If go earlier or later would be fine. May request for the river view room and higher floor as our room is facing the construction side.

A small shopping centre with food court, starbucks, McDonald, Subways and a large supermarket is just located next to the hotel.

I stayed here for 5 nights last week (June 2012).

Had a two BR appartment.

Location is good, near Clarke Quay (walking distance).

Rooms are clean, large and although not stylish, quite satisfactory. They include one bathroom and one shower room, both with toilet. 3TV sets, amount of channels ok (for Singapore).

Service is minimal, as expected, but courteous and efficient.

Pool is nice, as well as the gym.

Only downturn, MRT (subway) is a good 10 minutes away if walking.

I was not lucky, cause during my stay there was a construction site nearby that was noisy 24 hours around. My rest was affected, and I slept an average 4 hours per night...

A good option. Inquire about the status of the construction before booking, and in any case ask for a river view.

We cannot say enough about the comfort of our stay here. The service was over the top! The apartment was immaculate and fully stocked with everything we needed. I would come back here in a minute upon future trips to Singapore. Also, the central location made getting around the city a breeze!

Just back from 8 nights at the Somerset Liang Court with our family of two adults and two children and really enjoyed this property. We stayed in a two bedroom premier apartment on the 22nd floor. We had requested a higher floor to minimise the noise from construction of the adjacent MRT station. We did hear some noise and our view immediately below was of a construction site - however this didn't detract from our holiday, the kids loved watching the building progress!

The apartments are very spacious and we certainly made use the of kitchen for making snacks and also used the washer/dryer most days. The master bedroom was huge and bathrooms very nice. The staff were very friendly and the free internet in the reception area was a bonus. The pool area is shared with the Novotel but it was never crowded and we alway found beach chairs and shade, pool towels are provided. Note that the "shallow" end of the pool is 100cm deep so small children can't touch the bottom, however there is a small area of steps into the pool which the kids can walk into the pool before it gets too deep.

The continental breakfast was fine and we always found enough variety even after 8 days. Breakfast starts at 6.30am during the week and we found there was no crowd before 8.00am but after that it did get busy and there were delays in food being replenished. The was always extra seating available around the corner from the juice station which most people never found.

The Clarke Quay area was great with plenty of restuarants to choose from and it was about a 5 minute walk to the MRT station. The hotel is above a small shopping centre with a food court, McDonalds, Starbucks and supermarket so well serviced for immediate needs.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and found it perfect for travelling with a young family - we would definitely consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Request high floor away from construction. 8th floor is where the breakfast room and pool is so can...

Stayed before had a makeover since. Booked 9 nights 2 bed premier apartment. Requested high floor and away from construction noise which I read on trip advisor was a problem. Had doubts re been given premier apartment but got 25 th floor gr8 views with balcony but was on the side of construction site which operates 24 hrs. Req a move on check in twice but didn't happen so not real impressed! Apartments do have all you need and on a 25% special offer excellent value for money esp with 2 beds 2 bathrooms. Our apartment showed signs of damage and rough maintenance and expected higher standard from a Somerset branded hotel. They are serviced 6 days and breakfast is ok if you only want basic. Has a washer dryer which is essential for stays in humid Singapore. Also got room to move with a lounge dining area. I still think this place is worth considering as Clarke Quay is a happening place at night cheaper food options supermarket lots of food options in shopping centre under building, hop on off bus stops outside door, short walk to MRT, and can walk to Raffles city, merlion,river along side etc, all you want actually. Our only problem was the noise from building site....thank goodness for earplugs! It didn't spoil our holiday!

My wife and I stayed at liang court for 7 nights on business/ pleasure trip. Since we have visited Singapore earlier we knew what we were looking for. Anywhere you stay its never far unless u stay on east coast road. Clarke quay, orchard, business district are the key main areas within Singapore. We were looking for something quiet and relaxed but still close to the action invade we felt like. Don't get me wrong Clarke quay has all the colour to paint your night red, but you have Robertson quay on the other side, which is quieter and more relaxed and liang court is right at that junction. The property is centrally located and shares the pool with Novotel. The 7/11 and 24 hrs McDonald's really is a safe net for those late nights. The apartment lobby and the apartment itself is no jazz but the space you get is phenomenal.We paid the same amount for a 2 bedroom apartment with balcony what You would pay the same for a regular room at any hotel in Singapore. The view from the room is amazing as well, overlooking the marina sands and the river. The only drawback is that there is no room service etc, breakfast is included in the price but its just name sake. U rather get down and have Starbucks.... Yes its right under the apartment. The advantage of having Novotel in the same premises is that getting a cab is never a problem. The rooms are fairly small but doable. The mattresses and the bedsheet are certainly not egyptian count cotton but you surely will get a good night sleep. Try avoiding the 8th floor as that's the breakfast area and it could get noisy. The staff is extremely friendly and housekeeping is fab, make sure you buy 2 ltr water btls from 7/11 as the drinking water us not replenished, its once during your entire stay.
Overall we had a lovely stay at liang court. I would certainly recommend this property to all type of travellers
