“Fantastic views, really nice pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

This was our third time in KL and after staying in Bukit Bintang the previous times we wanted to have a change of scenery. Somerset was a good choice: our apartment had fantastic views from the living room, bedroom and bathroom (!) and the pool area was fabulous - although some shade would have made it even better since it was really hot. The gym was smallish as usual but had great views as well and the AC was a bliss. WiFi worked great. The location was OK, we could take a morning run to the park at Petronas towers and the Ampang Park train station was close. The only downside was the breakfast served in the restaurant in the same building; it was very basic, with eggs and toast and pastries and some hot Asian dishes - but I'm sure it depends totally on what you like to eat. The staff in both the restaurant and in the reception area was extremely friendly and helpful - the only grumpy one being the guy who checked us in. It was also super great with a washing machine that doubles as a dryer!

Amazing one night stay at Somerset Anyang Kuala Lumpur - staying in a one bedroom apartment (was very appreciative of the upgrade from the studio room!).

The room is spacious with a well equipped kitchen and great bathroom. The point of difference is a washer/dryer in the room, which is very helpful.

Rooftop pool and gym was a treat and a great view of KL.

Recommendation if you are travelling with bags to not try to use public transport, the walk is relatively short to Ampang Park train station, however is quite challenging to navigate with a bag. Uber from KL Sentral probably better option.

Amazing views, amazing room and the rooftop pool was lovely. Staff were extremely helpful and all the added extras you get in your room really make for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend - great value for money

Recently stayed for 2 nights, apartments are a 15 minute walk from twin towers. Couldn't fault the apartments for cleanliness and facilities were very good. Cafe next door was fine for breakfast which was included, nothing fancy but adequate continental choices. . Apartment had a washer/dryer which was great as we had been travelling for a week and had another 2 weeks holiday. So gave us opportunity to wash and dry clothes, they even provided sachets of washing powder! Would Stay here again, great views of the city was an added bonus from our apartment on 21st floor. Pool& gym facilities on 22nd floor, pool was great with amazing 360 degree views of the city.
A few tips for KL - book the Petronas towers in advance, we arrived on the Tuesday and walked up to the towers expecting to Go up that day - it was fully booked for both the Tuesday & Wednesday. We booked on line for Thursday morning at 9.15 am as we were on a flight out early afternoon, it was great just 4 of us on the tour. Takes about an hour hour from start to finish as you are only allowed a set amount of time on the bridge and at the top of the towers, more than adequate for photos.
KL towers ( 2 towers in KL both definitely worth visiting) was excellent we did this at night and the views are spectacular, Tip take the free shuttle bus from where the first security guard is, it's a long steep walk!
The Hop on Hop off bus is a good way to see everything, but pick your time traffic in KL is very heavy in peak tmes and can take a long time.
Don't bother with bird park, it's dreadful, we cut our visit short as the birds were in cages that felt to small and they didn't look very healthy.
Butterfly park was small and we enjoyed seeing all the different types.
Taxi's were cheap and metered, so no problems. We got a taxi to the airport, allow plenty of time
We should have done a bit more research on eating out and would recommend that you do that. I'm gluten intolerant so makes life a bit more difficult. Enjoyed KL but not on my list for a return trip.
