For the money with the size of the rom, it is definitely good value. The location is near West Lake (as its name implies). And it would be a good location to have a walk in the city centre. Not much variety of the breakfast, but since I was on the biz trip, it was OK. If I had been...

As a 4 star hotel, I thought Somerset should offer better service. When I book the room before my stay, I have already informed that we are celebrating our anniversary there and the booking staff actually noted on this. But in the end, there's nothing from the hotel that gave us the personal touch. Not even a nicely decorated room....

In looking for a different place to stay outside of my usual hotel, I decided on a serviced apartment. Having the option of cooking meals vs. eating out every night was appealing. A friend had stayed at Somerset a few years ago and provided a good recommendation. I also knew that I wanted to be in the Westlake area vs....

It reads "Welcome Home" on the business card of the Somerset West Lake, and for once, that is an accurate advert. I truly felt at home during my stay. I have stayed at several hotels in Vietnam, and this experience certainly was one of the best if not THE best. Rooms are spacious, and kept spotlessly clean, with a large...
