Fantastic stay. The apartment was a nice size, great view as well. It also had a washing machine which we used a fair bit. The one bedroom has a little office as well. Walk in closet was great. Bathroom was very well appointed, good use of space. Smart design throughout the apartment. The infinity pool on the roof was nice and the kids area was fun as well. Would have been nice if there was a slide swing type area, but overall our daughter still had lots of fun in the kiddie pool. The gym was fine as well. The best thing about Somerset is the view, just spectacular from the roof, you can see the Petronas towers which look amazing at night! Breakfast was just okay, quite repetitive and it's best to show up early because the food gets colder and colder even with butane warmers.don't quite get that.. anyhoo. We also ordered room service from SOuled out which was great the first night.. but terrible the second.
Overall however, we would definitely stay there again but if possible, we would decline the breakfast option. The staff was nice as well.

I have been a great fan of Somerset properties around the world and was expecting the same when I walked in with my family to the Ampang property. The checkin was spot on and the hotel had upgraded the room to a better on and i was bowled over on this first gift itself.

The living room was spacious, kitchen well equiped, washing machine a must for long travel stay, amazing view, a splendid bath room with a full glass view of the KL skyline from the bath tub. The bed room was as usual up to the somerset standard. Bed was heavenly. High speed wifi gives you the fast catching up on urgent emails too. The swimming pool, gym and lounge on the top (22nd) floor is a golden opportunity to swim with a view of the Patronas and other skyline.

very near to KLCC (5 minutes walk) and Apmang park LRT station (2 minutes walk) The hotel does have shuttle to these places.

Only down point I thought was walking out through the main enterence to the next door restaurant for the Breakfast. While Souled Out is great for food and drinks, their breakfast was nothing great and we actually stopped taking it after few days.

Otherwise, great value for money, location etc.

Room Tip: Choose the higher floor looking over to the Jalan Ampang. Those are better view ones.

We stayed in the Somerset Ampang when it first opened and stayed there for six weeks. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room ( a two bedroom apartment) comfortable and of reasonable size. We also had excellent views of the Petronas Towers and were only 10-15 minutes walk from KLCC. If coming to KL for an extended stay or with children it's a good alternative to a hotel with a small but well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities in the room. The pool area is nice too. The addition of Souled out restaurant is a definite boon as it is a terrific family restaurant in the days and a lively bar/ restaurant by night (especially weekends)

Stayed: January 2012

Location - very very close to the center of the city and within the walking distance to some of the attractions - Petronas Tower.
Property - very new and very well maintained, impressed.
Check-in - extremely efficient. The only hitch, we had to wait for our room for couple of hours (in spite of a request for early check-in). Compensated with an upgrade to a 3-bedroom apartment.
Room - Very well appointed and fitted. Ample of space with all amenities that one would need. The kitchen was adequately furnished with the right amount of fittings for cooking a meal.
The housekeeping was top class.
The kids loved the swimming pool on the 22nd floor, super view of the city and quite a novelty. Did not use the gym but did see what's on offer - Thumbs Up.
Breakfast - included in the room rent at the next door restaurant. For vegetarians there is only fruits and bread on offer - that is not something that we looked forward to, could improve on the vegetarian options. My daughter and I eat eggs so were OK with a live station serving Omelet / other options. This needs to changes for the vegetarians.

Staff - wonderful, always at hand to offer assistance.
Our Experience - Great.
Will definitely come back if I am going back to KL.

Room Tip: Ask for higher rooms (the view gets better as you go higher). If you are a non-smoker specifically a...

Situated next to the British High Commission, the Somerset is about 5 mins by taxi to KLCC. Great location and service with a smile! In addition to its spacious and clean rooms, the clubhouse offers great view of the city.
