Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur
Ranked #17 of 349 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 April 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.

Stayed last week and found that the reviews of previous guests was spot on! Staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient, all what we expected and more. The Gym was very well equipped, and the pool was clean and inviting. Breakfast at the Souled out restaurant was decent enough and the location was perfect. Most places in the city were easily reachable by cab. A tip- do not use the budget taxis if you want to sit comfortably at the back- use the executive cabs instead. They cost double, but you ride in comfort! We will be back......

Room Tip: Choose a high floor with a view
