“Dated but great location.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We stayed here last week with our 2 kids. It's a very a central location next to a shopping centre with a supermarket.
Close to MRT but as the others say taxis are relatively cheap.
It's a 1960s building with it being a little dated in decor and bathroom, but it had all the essential features. Clean large comfortable rooms. We had a view of marina bay sands.
He only real negative was the very ordinary breakfast.
I would definitely stay here again with a family holiday.

We did a reasonable amount of research and found this place to be is consistent with the positive reviews we read before booking. The two bedroom apartment we had was a good base for our two week stay in Singapore.

The key positives, the apartment was very big, clean and well air conditioned. The kitchen was great, especially when our kids went down for a few days with a virus. The washing machine got a work out every evening and clothes dried in a day hanging in the apartment. Despite overlooking the construction site for the new train station noise was virtually non existent. This included no noise from above, below or next door. The staff were the most friendly I have ever experienced any where we have stayed. They created a very positive atmosphere. The wi fi was free and was very fast.

The pool is very large and very deep (3.3 metres at its deepest).

The tv had a large range of tv stations. Plenty of kids stations as well as sport, movies etc.

The location is reasonably good. If you want to use the train it is a bit of a hike, especially with young kids. We preferred to use the public bus system that has key stops just outside reception. You are two minutes walk to a supermarket and 3 minutes walk to a mass of restaurants.

The beds were rock hard, but as someone who has back issues they never ever gave me even a twinge so they get a big thumbs up.

The breakfast provided was basic but good. If you want more variety you can walk down to the pool and then into the Novotel. The breakfast is not of better quality at the Novotel but just more variety and they also had very good service standards.

I really don't have anything negative to say. As others have pointed out the overall complex and the apartment itself is a little tired. A few of the chairs were well worn and one of our televisions was replaced on three occasions but never really worked. For the money you would get something slightly newer in Sydney or Melbourne but on par for size. You don't get this sort of service in Australia so we really enjoyed it and appreciated it.

Had a 'family' holiday here - four grown ups though in a two bedroom suite. My folks picked it, I definitely rate it as a great location. Facilities in the apartment included free unlimited wifi, a full kitchen, a washing machine, two bathrooms and the apartment was cleaned everyday. It has a pool which is full of small people (kids) and is shared with the Novotel next door and breakfast was also included everyday. The location was excellent right by Clarke quay, we ate here frequently and used this MRT when we weren't feeling lazy to take a taxi (taxis very cheap - esp if splitting between four). I would recommend and I would stay again.

Good extended stay option. Great location and proximity to Clark Quay. Room sizes are good and bathrooms and furnishing renovated. Staff friendly and generally helpful. If you get a good value, good place for family visit so you have extra room to spread out. Free wi-fi and ample televisions.

Free breakfast extremely basic so we opted out. Apartment generally clean but kitchen required more thorough cleaning. Washer/dryer in room great amenity - although takes extremely long time to complete load. Room exterior/hallway walls require cleaning. We had a problem with broken a/c in room but readily fixed.

With a family of five accommodation can sometimes be difficult. The Somerset Liang Court was a great place to stay that had ample room in the apartment for our growing teenagers. Everything we needed was in walking distance, with an abundance of dining choices in Clarke Quay. Shopping nearby and very easy to use transport options or a longer stroll to the Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Flyer, Chinatown, the Merlion, lazer show and the Marina Bay Sands. Will definitely stay again. Service was exceptional.

Our family of four stayed in this serviced apartment for four nights. It's centrally-located for most of the sights (SGD$20 taxi ride from the airport, and about $10 from the main attractions on Sentosa), close to Clarke Quay and less than 10 minutes walk across one of the Singapore River bridges to the Clarke Quay MRT. Downstairs in the Liang Court shopping arcade there is a large supermarket and lots of food outlets, with a strong Japanese emphasis. No food court any more, though - that's been replaced by a Uni Qlo branch.
The staff are polite and unobtrusive, and the rooms were cleaned promptly each day. We had the 2-bedroom 'premier' apartment (without breakfast - it proved easy to pick up cereal, juice etc from the supermarket and eat in the pretty-well equipped kitchen before heading out in the mornings). Beds were firm (which we like!) but very comfortable. The only reason we've marked this down to 4 stars is because a number of the fittings and decor of the room were starting to show their age - worn and torn dining chair seats and walls, and rather tatty towels. These were minor quibbles, however - overall, a great stay, and would defintely use this place again.

Room Tip: High floors for good views

we stayed in this e4xcellent hotel for a week. reception staff prompt and helpful. locfation of this hotel is close to happening place clarke quay/boat quay/mrt transit. rooms are superb facing the quay. housekeeping does a good job. the only hitch is breakfast which isnt much. convenience stores just a block away. cigarettes/beer/alcohol is very very expensive being non duty free.
eats at the central basement its cheap. astons steak food at orchard is superb. u can download their menu. otherwise mcdonalds is always there.

Room Tip: higher floor rooms facing the quay are better. good views of marina sands bay hotel
