Room - I got the corner room.. Room is nice and clean but the wifi is not good as it can only be connected at certain areas but after complaining, they got it fixed immediately. So thumbs up for the good service! TV channels are good.
Breakfast - It wasn't a spread and it's quite terrible for me as most of the food served contain pork. Not vegetarian-friendly. Definitely not worth to pay extra for. Based on my stays so far, I personally think that Somerset properties are seriously lacking in this department.
Pool - What can I say? Pool is big and really nice.. I love it! Breakfast is served on this floor.
Location - 15mins walk to Thonglor BTS.. Not a good idea to drag your luggage along as the pavement can be quite narrow and uneven. A free tuk-tuk shuttle service is provided but that is due to availability. Most taxi drivers didnt know this hotel so it can be troublesome at first. But just give them the street name and it's pretty easy once you have entered the street cos you can just give them the directions or show the building.
A small mall is located opposite the hotel. Starbucks there closes as late as 2am and a 24hr Burger King to feed your sudden hunger in the middle of the night. There are also a number of massage parlours that close late down the street, a lot of Japanese restaurants in the area and a number of food stalls down the street.
FYI - There seems to be a lot of Japanese guests staying here by the way. Traffic at the main road can be really bad so the train is pretty much the most convenient mode of transport.
