Somerset Hotel, Miri

Somerset Hotel is located at Jalan Kwang Tung in the heart of Miri city. It is located near to the Miri Pujut Road.

Somerset Hotel do not have a basement parking but it has ample of parking spaces at its compound. The location of this hotel is ideal as it is just a walking distance to the 2 largest shopping centre of the city, Imperial Mall and Bintang Megamall. Canada Hill is just located behind this hotel for those who fancy to tackle the hill.

The lobby is spacious and the staff are courteous. Newspaper is not provided to the room so guest need to come down here to read newspaper which is available at the lobby area.

The room rate here is quite reasonable at RM99 per night. Breakfast is not provided but that is not an issue as it is quite easy to find food nearby. All the guest rooms are secured by Vingcard which is quite portable and one will no need to deposit the key each time they went out.

The corridor leading to the guest room. The corridor is rather narrow and not air conditioned (although a split unit air conditioner was spotted here)

The guest room size is reasonably spacious. Most importantly, it is clean. The pillow is rather flat and I definitely need some time to get use to it.

The room view is just simply breathtaking with Yu Lan Plaza and Wisma Pelita Tunku as the backdrop. The city can be simply explored on foot from here.

I have an issue with their coffee and making facilities. Note the sugar packaging. It is basically packaged in a plastic bag! There is no spoon and only 1 plastic stir is provided.

Overall, it is still a decent hotel and the room rate is very reasonable. I will surely be back again in the future.

Quite a nice hotel and reasonably priced although I prfer one which provides breakfast.

So you just pour the sugar from the plastic bag into the cup? Have to make sure you don't pour too much! : )

Actually, for the sugar case, its settle for long time already...its just becuase at that time the sugar is out of stock,and its only happen for 1 week only, and after that we had used the proper sugar packet. Thank you.
