"Excellent location and amenities"
The building is located 5 mins walk away from the Post Office, so we still get the quietness we needed to sleep, yet close enough to walk to all the tourist spots. The gym and pool in the hotel are excellent, very clean and are opened till late so you can use even at late hours. The Staff were very friendly, offering us tips to travel around the city because we were there for the Lunar New Years so majority of the stores were closed. Enjoyed the hotel and would highly recommend it.
"We made a return visit (and extended our first)"
We have now stayed in this apartment hotel twice. The first time was in late 2014 when we booked in for 3 days. We extended several times and ended up staying 10 days, including New Year's Eve. They were very good about shuffling things so we could stay in the same room So, two years later, we booked there again for a week in January 2017. The only snag with our first stay was that we did not have a balcony. You need to book at least a 1 bedroom premier suite to get a balcony. That is what we did, and they supplied balcony chairs immediately when we asked. The cafe downstairs, where breakfast is served, had changed operator since our previous stay. This was a good change. It is now a Japanese restaurant, though they have all types of breakfast. They also deliver food to the apartments (not sure if this includes breakfast). We used this service, and the food was good. The apartments are used by people on extended business stays, as well as tourists. They are in District 1, but not in the central area. This is not a problem. It is a few blocks from the Cathedral and the Post Office. The other main sights are a bit further, but still walkable (and we are seniors). There are plenty of restaurants around, as long as you walk in the right direction :-). As others have said, taxis are cheap. The apartment was fully equipped - including a washing machine and an umbrella!!! There was no dishwasher, but the maid service was excellent, and included washing dishes. They supplied soap powder for the washing machine. The electric plugs in the kitchen were UK style, but the others looked like they would handle North America, European and Australian plugs. The wifi works well, though not round all of the swimming pool. The only - and extremely minor - problem we had was that we did not get the "welcome basket" we were entitled to with our booking until 2 days later and asking twice. Practically, I suggest going to the Ascott site and joining their customer club before making a booking, rather than using one of the normal booking agencies. The prices are competitive, and you may (we did) get a good electronic coupon for a subsequent stay at an Ascott property. Hopefully we will get another one following this stay. We have spent, in total, more nights in this hotel than in any other for quite a long time. That is the best recommendation.
Large and spacious suite with all the amenities we needed. Staff was helpful with our queries and helpded us with directions. The mini mart besides the reception was also well stocked and items were reasonably priced. Multiple Indian restuarants located within a 1.5 km radius
"Awesome location and friendly staff"
Stayed in Somerset twice in my visit to Saigon. The hotel location is close to everything. The staff are very friendly. The room are clean and spacious.I will definitely stay with Somerset again when I go back in HCMC
"Perfect for families"
Excellent choice for families. We stayed here both at the beginning and the end of our trip. Location is walking distance to D1 and the apartment clean and spacious. We found breakfast to be perfectly adequate with a choice of a main as well as buffet choices. Supermarket on premises well stocked and very handy. Internet strong. Pool area nice but could do with a few more lounges. Good solid choice and value for money in D1. Recommended.
