“excellent price for the size”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Good staff, very eager to assist, including asking for laundry at 9am when I didn't have any!? Big suite and very clean, all the amenities of home at the cost of an hotel. I won't be staying in a cramped hotel room again in Bangkok. Furnishings rather dated - they see the same as 5 years ago.

Room Tip: higher floors have the better views

Dear davidrkahn,

It was a great pleasure having you stay with us recently. Thank you for sharing your feedback about your stay experience.
I have noted your observations on both positive and negative aspects of your stay.
As a predominantly 'long stay' residence with kitchens and food preparation areas in every room, we maintain a strict insect spraying program and daily housekeeping cleaning service, to ensure our most effective insect controls are maintained. However, I do apologise for the issue you report.
If any aspects of your room do not work in future; e.g. no hot water, please do report this to our Guest Service team who will engage our 24 hour technicians for assistance to rectify such machine failures.
There are several good restaurants located nearby our residence and are within walking distance however, there is a much larger selection in the nearby Silom area.

Once again, thanks for staying with us and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

Yours Sincerely,
Valter Narminio| Area Manager

The Somerset is not 5 star luxury but has the largest apartments I have stayed in in Bangkok and has a very friendly laid back ambience. We had a two bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with a large lounge room and big dining area. The kitchen is adequate, but who wants to cook in Bangkok ! The staff are all very friendly and mostly quick to assist .
The breakfast was sometimes a bit chaotic due to it being the Xmas period and probably a full house. But this happens, and was handled by the staff.
The position in Soi Suanplu is one of the best in Bagkok. What a great street. The hotel runs a complimentary tuk tuk to the skytrain every hour and it is not too far too walk in any case. Over the walkway across Sathorn are the delights of Soi Convent and Silom. What fun !
Highly recommended, fantastic value.

We stayed 1 night. The hotel was a little dated, however the room was large and the views over bangkok were nice. I found a small cockroach in the kitchen, the walls needed a lick of paint, & bathroom shower was faulty.

Dear Melita191,

Thank you for sharing your feedback about your stay experience with us.

We always try to do our best to meet the expectations of all our guests, but in this instance, we failed to meet your expectations. For this reason, we will be undergoing a refurbishment program in 2014 as it has been somewhat delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. We are currently in the final part of the refurbishment tender with our owners.

I hope that we will have another opportunity to make your stay experience a better one in the future. We look forward to welcoming you again, giving us another opportunity to serve you better.

Yours Sincerely,

Full 1 bedroom apartment, amazing buffet breakfast daily, staff friendly and helpful. For the price this was fantastic value. The only downside I would say is the location. About a 15 minute walk to the nearest skytrain and although this is not that far, come summer time you would be wishing it was just across the road. They do offer a tuk tuk service however we found this unreliable and waited over an hour for their 30 minute service.

I have also noted your comments on our Tuk Tuk service. Whilst we do run the service every 30 minutes fro 830am-6pm daily, and 99.9% on time, over the past month or so, with the ongoing political demonstrations, there has been at times where our service has been affected with the extra issues to traffic volumes due to traffic diversions. This has caused some delays. However, we do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Stayed at this residence for the last 3 months. It was a home away from home for me. Yes, as many previous reviews mentioned, the apartment is dated and probably not everything is up to expectation of its name. However, the staff members, their friendliness and prompt services made up for the shortcoming of the physical outlook for the property. All staff were friendly and I haven't encountered a face who isn't smiling when I stepped out of the lift or the minute I crossed the security guards (yes, even the security guards greet everyday).
The apartment is dated indeed, but residence do get updates that they will be upgrading the facilities. So do be patient.
The only thing that I am not happy with is the housekeeping. They are not consistent. There are days when the apartment was superbly cleaned. There are days when I got back with dustbin on the study table and rubbish still in it. On a few occasions bins weren't emptied, and rubbish not in the bin (in plastic bags) next to bin under the sink not thrown. A few times they took away the robes without replacing and I needed to call housekeeping for it.
Other than house keeping, I am happy with my stay. Dated apartment doesn't mean it is not comfortable. I can overlook the imperfection as everyone else made up for the flaw.

Dear g_ong_13,

Many thanks for your review of your stay with us over the past 3 months. The planned refurbishment has been delayed due to a lengthy tender process that is now almost complete so we hope to soon announce a start date in 2014 for the refurbishment program once this process is over.
I do apologise for some shortcomings experienced with our housekeeping department. The issues raised will be discussed with the team.
Overall, I am pleased to read that our service has stood out as a main highlight during your stay with us.
Once agin, thank you for staying with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

First impression lasts they say. My expectation was higher for a big brand. But alas, it wasnt what it supposed to be. The doorman was great, friendly and understanding. The front office can be better, they were cold... just because we were asian?
Housekeeping service : you have alot to learn to upkeep an apartment. Found sweet wrappers in our living room upon arrival. Not a good sign.... The next day service was unacceptable, ashtray was not emptied, trashbins were not emptied, pillows covers were crumpled though the bed was made. An example of a classic action, one of our bathrobes was left hung on the chair in our bedroom. A good housekeeping staff would take the initiative to hang it....
Breakfast : it was an ok rate. The waitstaff could at least look interested and groomed, not zombie looking and literally out of the bed looks.
Oh, the minimart ladies: two words for you. Double Trouble. Fair enough that you dont speak english, but please have the courtesy to entertain a customer with smiles and good attitudes. I also didnt know that a reload dtac card that cost 100 baht was charged 105 baht by the ladies?
Overall experience : not a nice one as they charged us for bedroom slippers and adapter. No refund of deposit even though we returned the adapter upon check out.

Room Tip: Check your washer dryer if the dryer is indeed working. Left it to dry for a while but my laundry wa...

Dear Andy J

Thank you for your feedback.

We are sorry to hear of your unhappiness during your recent stay with us. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to address your concerns.

Please also accept our apologies if our Housekeeping staff and some of the outsourced restaurant staff were not up to their usual high standards. Your comments will be shared with the teams for improvement. Thanks for highlighting the issue with the sale price of the phone card and we are investigating this with the owners of the minimart for an explanation.

Lastly, we would like to share that slippers are complimentary. If you have been charged incorrectly, please do email us at enquiry.bangkok@the-ascott.com with a copy of the invoice so we can investigate and arrange a refund. I also note that our Guest Service team may have forgotten to rebate the adaptor and we are happy to refund that also.

We are sorry if we had failed to meet some of your expectations during your recent stay with us. We hope to be able to welcome you again and have another opportunity to serve your better.

Once again, thank you for your continued support.
