Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment January 2014 with 2 adults & 3 teenagers. Plenty of space for us all. The washing machine / dryer was very handy, fully equipped kitchen. 5 minute safe & easy walk to Clarke Quay, with the shopping centre right there. Shopping centre has McDonalds, Subway, $2 shop & great pizza restaurant. Taxi rank at the Shopping centre. We had no problems with construction noise nearby. The pool on 8th floor was big & great to unwind at the end of the day. Would highly recommend for families!

Dear jen1293,

Thank you for your positive review on Tripadvisor!

We are glad that your family enjoyed our apartments as well as the amenities. Yes, we are located right next to the Liang Court Shopping Mall with a supermarket and many great restaurants. We hope that you have had the chance to visit the famous Clarke Quay nightspot and to enjoy the scenery along Singapore River.

We truly hope to see you again for your next trip to Singapore!

Preferring serviced apartments to hotel when travelling with children we chose Somerset Liang court for its location close to Clark Quay and the MRT.

The apartments are modern, furnished as is usual these days in white, brown and gray tones. Beds are quite firm, something I don;t like but my wife does, so its a matter of preference. The place was clean and well kept although both the exterior and interior courtyard show the age of the property (light brownish brick on the outside, painted white on the inside).

The apartments themselves have all you need. AC in each room, kitchen, large fridge, washer and dryer, large flat screen TV's with satellite. WIFI is free and works well. The hotel shares the pool with Novotel Clark Quay which means you can get poolside food & drink service from there if you wish (Somerset doesn't have a restaurant, only breakfast).

Breakfast was good. Not the largest buffet, but more than enough to start the day. Cereal, yogurt, juice, Coffee, various breads, some hot dishes (varies every day, scrambled eggs, baked beans, dim sum buns, etc), fruit, pastries.

As part of the Novotel-Somerset complex there is a shopping mall, Japanese themed, with a japanese supermarket and good restaurant in the basement, some stores, money changer (outside, by the Novotel entrance) and 7-11 on the ground floor.

Staff was ok, we didn't have much to do with them so can't really comment further.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and would consider it next time in Singapore.

Dear Magste,

Thank you for taking time to leave your feedback for us on Tripadvisor.

Indeed, serviced apartments can be great alternatives to hotel rooms when traveling with families and we are thrilled that you chose to spend your vacation with us in Singapore! We are glad that you found the furnishings and interior to your liking. We strive to provide the essential amenities and electronics within the apartment to make your stay as close to home as possible.

Thank you for sharing your positive comments about breakfast, we will definitely convey this to our Breakfast Team! Being a serviced apartment, we provide a continental breakfast spread. Our Team has been working hard to inject some variety to the menu and will continue to take in more feedback from our guests.

We truly hope to host you again for your next visit back to Singapore. Please let us know your preference for the bedding and we will be most glad to provide mattress toppers to improve your sleep experience. It was regrettable that our staff did not take the opportunity to demonstrate our Ascott-Somerset hospitality; we hope that you can give us a chance to serve you better the next time.

We are 2 families staying at Liang Court this is our last night and we have loved staying here. Lovely and very service minded staff. Clean and well kept apartments with loads of room for the kids. The location is about a $6 taxi ride to anywhere Cbd or $10 to Santosa. Walking distance with small kids to Marina Bay Sands.

Is this the best hotel I've ever stayed at? Not particularly (although it is nice enough). Is this a great hotel location? Absolutely! Our family of five (2 parents & 3 kids - 12 yrs old, 10 yrs old, and 8 yrs old) stayed in a two-bedroom suite that had two bathrooms and included a kitchen with a washer/dryer combo. The good things: fantastic location to Clarke Quay (with its plethora of restaurants), the MRT, Fort Canning, and Orchard Street. Great front desk staff and maintenance crew. We encountered some small problems and they solved them. Also has a large, well-kept outdoor pool on the eighth floor. Oh - and the grocery store in the adjacent shopping mall made breakfast in pajamas a very nice start to our days before dashing all over Singapore. The so-so things: nice enough hotel, but perhaps could use a bit better cleaning not only on a daily basis but in between clients. Stains on the couch, food left in kitchen cabinets and not entirely pleasant odor from previous tenants' cooking were a few of the issues we encountered. However, none of these things were enough to put us off - we would definitely return.

Dear Cmonkez,

Thank you for taking time off to share your feedback on Tripadvisor! We are glad that your family enjoyed our 2-bedroom apartments with the double bathrooms and kitchen. Yes, you are right, we are located in the heart of Clarke Quay, just a stone’s throw away from the MRT which can bring you to various attractions in Singapore! We are also located next to Liang Court Shopping Mall with a Japanese supermarket which you visited.

However, we will also like to apologise for the lapses in our housekeeping service. Going forward, we will strive to do better in terms of our housekeeping practices.

Thank you for the compliments to our Front Office and Maintenance staff. We sincerely hope to see you again and will continue to work hard to become the best accommodation which you have stayed!

From the outside the building looks like something that time forgot. Don't judge this book by its cover.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment that was massive. It had everyone you could need. It's like a home away from home. Great spot at Clarke Quay.

The building is above a shopping centre and shares the pool with the Novotel. There is a minimum stay of 7 nights required but the price is comparable to a single room in a hotel. Why have a studio hotel room when you can have an amazing apartment.

The rooms and appliances are very modern. If you are looking spend a week in Singapore with the family, put this on your list.

Dear Ozkart,

Thank you for staying with us and we are deeply honoured by your positive comments. Indeed, every staff here at our property strives to provide our guests with a home away from home. We are truly heartened that you enjoyed the location, facilities and our in-house amenities.

On top of that, you have also discovered our value proposition! The value which we want to provide to our guests lies with our service and apartments. As you correctly pointed out, the prices of our apartment stay can be compared to that of a single room in other hotels. We sincerely hope that more guests can come and experience this for themselves!

Once again, thank you for giving us the chance to host your stay in Singapore this time round. We hope to see you again!

Stayed 5 nights during christmas holidays in a 2 bedroom apartment with my 3 children. Rooms were clean and clean enough. Beds a bit hard but the pillows a bit soft, but still acceptable. Have to ask for some more basic amenities like dental kit and shower cap. It would be better if things like those already prepared when we arrived.
Breakfast was tasty enough but with minimum basic choices. And during our stay, we found same menu. In my opinion, only good enough to fill stomach in the morning before going out somewhere. There was kitchen in the unit that was good and enough if we want to cook ourselves.
Good wifi connections everywhere, aircon also worked well.
The swimming pool is shared with Novotel Hotel at 8th floor. So do not forget to bring access card if you want to swim to enable you to go back to the apartment.
During our stays, elevators were shut down in one morning so we have to use firemen lift. And we also experience false alarm.
Cleaning staff was good, but had a problem in communicating in English.
In general, our experience was OK. I recommend this hotel for families.

During holidays, it was a bit hard to find taxi in this city. Queue was too long and sometimes taken too much time. So the best choice is MRT. At one time, it took us 1,5 hours to wait for taxi from Gardens by the bay at 8 p.m! And sometimes taxi driver rejected to go to some areas.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are better to get better view.

Dear ismoyofx,

Thank you for coming to stay with us during the Christmas festive period!

We sincerely hope that your family’s vacation in Singapore had been enjoyable with our 2-bedroom apartment. It is regrettable that we were not able to address your concern regarding the hard beds during your stay. We have a good supply of mattress toppers which we can provide upon request to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our bathroom amenities are also provided readily upon request.

Thank you for providing us with your feedback regarding breakfast and our facilities. At present, we serve daily continental breakfast to mostly our long-stay guests and we are glad that you found the food to be tasty. Please be assured that we are working hard to make improvements.

We apologise profusely for the lift breakdown during your stay. This is an isolated event and we have proceeded to conduct many checks on the elevator system.

Indeed, it may be slightly hard to hail a cab during certain times especially across the peak period. However, we truly hope that this will not deter your future trips to Singapore! We are looking forward to host you at our property again.

We stayed at the Somerset Liang Court with another couple and it was very well situated. We found it easy to get to everywhere. We caught the Hop On Hop Off Bus just by the front door. Clark Quay was a short walk away and we dined there often. The Novotel share the pool and give discount for meals. We had a very nice breakfast by the pool one morning. The pool was very nice and never got crowded. We enjoyed the spa and other people in our party used the gym. They were all good.
The front of house staff were pleasant and helpful but gave us directions that were completely wrong. In the end we didn't ask as they were clearly directionally challenged.
We would recommend the Somerset Liang but we would probably not stay there again. We had the second bedroom which was not really suitable for a couple (tiniest single beds I have seen). The bathroom we used was the general bathroom and was tiny and not very private!

Dear Lynette9

Thank you for staying with us during the festive period in December!

We are elated to hear from you about our location and that it was convenient for you to get around during your sightseeing. We are also glad that you took time off your itinerary to visit the gymnasium, pool and sauna. Thank you for sharing about our facilities on this platform.

At the same time, we are also sorry to hear about the directional problems posed by our Front Office colleagues. Please be assured that we will look into this matter and make sure that such miscommunication will be avoided.

As we are concerned with our guests’ comfort; our second bedrooms are furnished with 2 Super Single beds, which are slightly larger than normal Single beds. We are sorry that you did not find the second bedroom to your liking. However, we sincerely hope that in your future visits to Singapore, you can give us another chance to experience the Master bedroom or other smaller room categories which comes fully equipped with a King bed.

Thank you once again for leaving us with your valuable feedback.
