Great location. Our room had fantastic views from the 11th floor. Very efficiently run. Within walking distance of the LRT transport system. Very friendly and helpful staff. It was home from home for us

Room was very clean and staff were friendly. Breakfast was not bad, enjoyed the outdoor breakfast in the mornings. Had a huge dining table in the room and living room was cosy, feels like a home. Enjoyed my 2 night stay there with my group of friends.

Upon first entering the room, one is blown away by how spacious the rooms are and how every convenience is provided for to include appliances and cookware. The rooftop clubhouse and pool are also exceptional.

After staying a few nights, one can start to see deficiencies to include a complete lack of soundproofing between rooms, doors that slam shut, dingy walls, worn carpet, and a bathroom that always seems to smell like a Middle Eastern latrine.

The room was good for our purposes, but I cannot say I would consciously seek to return for another stay.

First of all: the view is fantastic. Either from the bedroom or the bathroom, it's fabulous. We stayed on the 11th floor. Big suite, nicely decorated but a few things that reminds you that this is Malaysia and that in Malaysia nothing is perfect. The bathroom door didn't want to close;. WiFi fall out once in a while ; aircon goes automically on when you enter despite shutting down the system before you leave. But overall it was a nice experience worth the money. Last nice remark: the outdoor swimming pool on the rooftop. You have to try this. Or enjoy the big Jacuzzi next to it while you enjoy the view.

Somerset Ampang is ideally located in the city centre of KL. The Petronas Towers and the KLCC complex is just a 15mns walk away. There is also a MRT station 5mns away (Ampang Park station). The apartment we booked was nice and convenient: washing / drying machine, fridge & kitchen, bathtub and shower, living room, separate room that comes along with a dressing, iron table, bath robes, flat screens and DVD players, etc... Great swimming pool on the roof top, where you find also a small lounge and a fitness. Breakfast is to be taken next door on ground floor. This was the only disappointment of the stay: the breakfast was quite poor in terms of choice and quality. All in all we still found the Somerset to be a good option for the city, with the services you can expect from a good range hotel, but at a much lower price (we only paid around 90€ per night).

I'll just start off by saying that I've stayed at A LOT of hotels and serviced apartments but this is by far my favourite hotel. I stayed in the 1 Bedroom Premier and it was much larger than I expected. It was very clean, modern and the bathtub had a great view. It had a separate study room which we didn't use and a fairly large walk-in-wardrobe. It's only about a 5 minute walk to an MRT station which was really convenient. Check in and check out were quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend :)

Booked a 3 bedroom premier.

This is my first visit to an Ascott Group Serviced Apartment. Having stayed in several 5 star hotels before, this service apartment is top notched for its service. We were warmly welcomed. There were also checks within 15 mins from moving into the unit to check if all is well. The rooms are well kept and modern. Being a service apartment, having a washing machine and dryer is highly beneficial. The unit was rather large and had nice views of the city. The frequent shuttle services to key places in downtime was helpful. The only qualm is the slight distance away from the mrt lines, but getting a taxi is easy. The experience would make me select an Ascott Group stay if it has a presence in the city I would be staying.

I love the swimming pool. Its at the roof top with a nice view of KL's skyline.
