“Noise!!!!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Checked in with my family of 4 for Christmas holiday, first impression was the place is quite old. Drove here but was frustrated with the lack if sign for car park, there shared car park with the mall next door, so they could at least put a sign there!

Then came the noise from the construction next door, we thought they would quiet down when sunset. But when we finally enquire, to our horror, the concierge says is a government project and they run 24x7!!! And there is nothing they could do apart from supplying us with ear plug... Sighs... What a tremendous let down. I'll be more peaceful staying at home than to hear this crap on holidays!!!

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenage children) stayed at Somerset Liang Court for 3 nights recently and we found it to be a very satisfactory experience. We rented a 2 bed room apartment and the price was very reasonable considering the very high hotel rates in Singapore. We were fortunate to get a special price from booking.com. The hotel is located in a very convienent location and we did not experience any noise what so ever. We had requested an apartment on the 21st floor facing the river and were granted our wish. The apartment was very spacious by service apartment standards.There was also free wifi which was great as in many other countries hotels are now charging silly rates for use of wifi which should be free. The only issue we had was that the apartment smelt musty and this I believe was due to the windows not having been opened for some time. Furthermore the rooms are carpeted which I believe is not necessary and is part of the reason for the musty smell. After about 2 days you get used to the smell otherwise the apartment was perfect.

The breakfast was poor and require some attention from the management. The range was very limited and on all 3 days we had the same range. With a little bit of inovation they could make the necessary changes without it costing the hotel any additional amount. This I believe the management should take serious note of.

The reception staff were very helpful and we were allowed to leave our luggage at the reception on check out and return later.

Next to this hotel is a twenty four hour government construction site. It is so loud that for the three nights we stayed there we did not get any sleep. Instead we had to watch TV as it was impossible to sleep.

I complaint, but the hotel staff said there was nothing they could do. The construction will only be complete by end 2013. Besides the noise had a skimpy breakfast in a cramped up lobby on the eight floor that did not have enough chairs and tables. My kids sat on the floor while having their breakfast.

Waste of money.

Room Tip: You will regret staying here.

Well, its a perfect place if you love to stay at hotel with apartment concept...

I went with my parents and my brother, we stayed at 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathroom, living room and kitchen.. Refrigerator and washing machine are provided. Free Wifi and nice TV channels.
The MRT is near, walk about 5 minutes and have bus station in front hotel - good access to Orchard, Chinatown or Marina Bay area...

Yes thats true, its a bit noisy - coz the MRT constructions until 2017 (if I am not mistaken) but I dont have any problem - I can sleep very well for my 4 nights stays..

Breakfast is lousy, I decided to skip the breakfast after I came the 2nd day - but my parents always went there and complain according lack of various foods (below hotel standard from my opinion - no sausages, no egg counter for sunny side up or omellete), even sometimes the foods already empty in the stall and we should wait quite long or we should inform them...

at least the hotel near 24 hours of Mc Donalds store and Kopitiam (open at 10am) so usually me and my brother prefer to eat our breakfast there..

No housekeeping service on Sunday, and you better bring your shampoo, soap, toothpaste by yourself..

I love to stay again in this hotel even lousy breakfast LOL

Room Tip: If you cant handle the noisy of MRT construction, you better ask to get the view to Novotel Hotel...

This serviced residence is normally comfortable after staying here several times before. However, on this stay there is construction site happening right next door and I hardly slept as it continued most of the night.
Not the properties fault but surely it will affect their business. I believe the city is building a new MRT station so in the future it will be a great positive point.
The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is very limited. Staff super friendly.

Room Tip: Stay on the other side of the construction site.

Our family (2 Adults & a toddler) spent a week at the Somerset Liang Court in October 2012 on the 11th Floor in a 2 bedroom apartment. Here's are brief run down of our experience:

OVERALL
* Perfect apartment for families in Singapore
* We would stay here again & have already recommended it to friends with kids
* Construction noise & Night Club may bother some people - we were OK with it

POSITIVES
* Very friendly & helpful staff - it was a real pleasure to stay with them
* Well located in Clarke Quay
* Apartment was clean & cleaned regularly
* Apartment was a modern but not "up to the minute" - a little "worn around the edges" but not bad by any means
* After an exhaustive online search the price of the Apartment halved one day - be persistent in looking for bargains
* Breakfast was basic hotel style - Scrambled eggs under a bain-marie, etc
* Pool was clean, well maintained & is shared with the Novotel Clarke Quay
* Taxi stand is on River Valley Road - never a long wait
* Supermarket (Meidi-Ya) & Liquor Store is accessible through the B2 level of the hotel - very handy
* "THIRSTY" International Beer shop also located in adjoining building on L2 - great range (USA, European Japanese & Australian) & they do free delivery anywhere in Singapore
* Food Court & Restaurants in adjoining building good for quick, cheap meals
* Fort Canning is across the road for a peaceful break from the city

NEGATIVES
* Construction for the Fort Canning Train Station was consistent all day but never really bothered us too much - noise was from 10:00 - 19:00 daily. This is likely to continue until mid 2013. Ask for a room facing the Novotel or the River if Daytime noise will be an issue
* Weekend noise (night club bass etc) from Clarke Quay was very loud at times into the early hours. That said "If you don't like planes, don't live near the airport". Rooms facing the Novotel & the River will get more of the Night noise.

Hope this helps.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Novotel or the River if Daytime noise will be an issue. Rooms facing the...

Wow!!! After reading review after review and searching for accommodation for family of 5 we decided to rely on trip advisor reviews and book here...to our delight it was perfect. We had rm 2501 and it was terrific,roomy , clean and suited our needs perfectly. Yes there was some construction noise even at level 25 but it didn't bother us.

We arrived early and staff did all they could to get us in by lunch and we were given access to pool and restrooms while we waited. We enjoyed the simple but satisfying breakfast each morning and never had to wait for a table and if something was low staff were more than happy to replenish stocks. We liked having washing and ironing convenience and used the pool a couple of times.

Location was great... Caught bus 195 to most places and used mrt daily. Restaurants at Clark quay expensive but beautiful food ....food court in adjoining shopping ctr cheap and convenient. Supermarket in mall also very convenient.

Overall everything here met our needs and have already recommended to family and friends who will be visiting in the near future.
