Self-Catering Apartments

Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur features a restaurant, fitness facilities and a rooftop pool with city skyline views. It is just a 5-minute walk from Ampang Park LTR Station, while concierge service and staff can assist with childcare and laundry needs.We enjoyed a warm welcome upon our arrival, check-in was swift. Our stay was originally for 4 nights but we extended it for one more before moving on to Langkawi. We were happy to hear that we are upgraded to B. The hotel was full so we made the last day’s booking through internet thinking that we would either be asked to move to another room or pay more. Neither of the two happened and this was highly appreciated. We remained in our upgraded room with no extras.We were shown to our spotlessly clean apartment on the 10th floor and the cabin boy demonstrated the use of the different facilities. The room was spacious, very comfy with a stunning view. Signature touches make the guest feel right at home and this is how we felt from the moment we stepped through.The location of Somerset Ampang was super! A 5-minute walk would take us to the metro station and one stop from here to the city centre and the Suria -Malaysia’s premium shopping centre, located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers. Our apartment featured state-of-the-art amenities including a flat-screen TV, DVD player and iPod dock, as well as free Wi-Fi connection.

The staff was a bunch of professionals, warm and friendly and always on hand to help with their local knowledge. They helped us choose some nice cultural and lifestyle activities which otherwise we might have missed.


A well-lit bathroom with view with more amenities than expected

After each day’s active cultural tour we felt at ease and longed to ‘return home’. We could relax within the privacy of our own living space and enjoy the modern and innovative business -broadband internet services that were provided. We had a card daily with the name of the person who was responsible for the room’s cleaning in case we needed any extras, and we were daily provided with a newspaper.

The fully equipped kitchen proved handy. The dining area and living room had an extra flat screen TV and in general, all these facilities plus the exceptional service, made the difference. Everything was perfect with attention to detail, making us feel like home.

We could have our breakfast down at the small restaurant next to the hotel, after showing our vouchers of course. Breakfast was fine and the people of the restaurant were nice. Lunch was also fine –not to mention that there was a ‘take away’ and we could order anything from our apartment. I also need to mention that after dining in the room we had all dishes washed the next day.

Swimming Pool

The rooftop ‘infinity’ pool of Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur is a great place to hang out, as well as the Jacuzzi and gym. We would love to swim at the terrace swimming pool late afternoon when we would return from our busy day’s sight-seeing outing.


We could have stayed longer here at the Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur if we had the time. The stay was fantastic and each time we were returning from our tour we felt like we were going home. I can easily recommend this fantastic property in Kuala Lumpur.
