During my last trip to Asia, I've been reccomended by a customer to stay at the Somerset Ampang Hotel. Being honest, I've never seen a so confortable hotel at this reasonable rate. My "room" it was an apartment. Living room, kitchen, dining space, bathroom with bath and shower, bedroom, service room..... a super view on the green landscape and a wonderful swimming pool on the top floor with Jacuzzi, Jim and baby pool watching the Petronas and the city at 360°.
Breakfast is at the restaurant beside the hotel. Clean and al fresco. Enough for me.
It was my first experience in this hotel, but surely not the last!

We had a three bed apartment for 3 nights which was excellent for family of 5. Apartment unfortunately smelt of cigarette smoke. But, was clean and spacious. This is probably more of a business hotel, with breakfast included next door at "Souled Out". Staff are really helpful and leaving bags for late flights was not too much trouble at all. We had a good stay!

We only spent one night in Somerset but we really liked it. Very modern, clean and beautiful apartments with the breathtaking view on Petronas Towers. Very good location. Great value for money. I will go back!!

Spacious room, basically an apartment, very nice decorated. The bathroom had a very nice view.
Loved the sitting area.
Very good location, close to city center.
The roof top pool worths every penny. Nice view.
Great value for money! Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Having stayed and explored KL many times, my husband and I often like to try new hotels. And we are certainly glad we did. We have a small son, so this makes our hotel decisions a little more tricky. We chose the room with the small office space. This was PERFECT for our little guy, a cot fit in wonderfully as did the excess baggage and shopping that we love to do in KL.
The rooms were spacious, the kitchen perfect, with washer and dryer. And the rooftop pool that closes at 11pm (amazing) is worth it. I promise. The view from the bathroom, whilst disappointed at the beginning I loved in the end.
Great wifi, the shuttle bus to KLCC is very convenient.
I think the downer to this review would be the breakfast. I was disappointed as we know how good Malaysian buffet spreads can be! The room service is a little unusual, but the service was great.
Seriously the pool at night....
The kids pool is great, although I must say very slippery. Little feet are slippery at the best of times. Maybe that could be looked at?
I also noticed even though We were on a non smoking floor, there were smoking trays, that were often full and the smell would drift into out rooms. Yuck.
All in all we will return, it was clean, spacious, well located( for us) and we had no drama's during our visit.
Thank you somerset!

Room Tip: For families with one child needing a cot, the one bedroom with office is ideal.

Nice, no frills place to stay. Great rooms for a comfortable family stay with good kitchen & living areas. There is a good gymn and even a pool at roof top. Has a good breakfast on the ground floor in the open. Centrally located within the city and yet not noisy.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a family ask for 1 bedroom, it is really spacious and private.

We stayed here for 3 weeks in a one bedroom apartment while to found a property to move into as we have relocated to KL. There was plenty of room and storage space which was essential for our stay. The rooms are modern and comfortable and well maintained. It is a bit out of the way but the shuttle bus it very handy and it never took long to take a taxi. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
