An excellent choice for the extended stay in Suzhou.
powerfish_2000Melbourne, Australia | Nov 4, 2015 | Trip type: Business
The Somerset hotel is an excellent choice for an extended stay in the Suzhou New District (SND).The reason that you will be in this part of China is most likely business. The hotel and location will amply suit this purpose.
The accommodation is a cross between a hotel and serviced apartments. Like a hotel, a good breakfast is provided daily to suit both eastern and western tastes. The lobby is small but ample with a push button coffee machine for those waiting. The gold chrome plated shoe polishing machine is situated near the entrance, I used it daily mainly for the thrills.
There are three lifts from the lobby to the rooms. The wait is usually quite minimal. If you are lucky enough to have a car, there is underground parking, accessible via the lifts.
The rooms have separate lounge, kitchen and bathroom provide the feeling of an area much larger suite at a much higher rate. A good sized TV in both the lounge room and bedroom. The rooms are well decorated with good, comfortable furniture. Although I did not cook with the electric stove or use the microwave, nor did I utilise the full sized fridge/ freezer, I did however make the most of the washing machine with the included drying function.
There is a prompt laundry service ideal for turning those shirts and slacks around quickly. The bathroom is shower over bath with in room toilet. The toilet comes with an interesting bidet attachment.
The hotel reception is helpful and friendly. The breakfast area is opened as a basic bar in the evenings. Beers and wine only available at excellent prices, served with a smile and a bowl of peanuts. Just what is needed after a long day in the office, a few minutes to unwind and decipher the day’s events with a cold one in hand.
The hotel is situated at the rear of a mid to high end multistorey shopping mall called Emerald City. There are plenty of dining options at reasonable pricing. There are two food hall areas within the mall (one at B1-parking level and one on the 2nd floor). Outdoors, there are better eating options with a range from modern Chinese, Japanese, Hot Pot, Pizza Hut with Asian and Western food options, theme restaurants and for those fearing living away from home, a 24 hour KFC. Many of these restaurants are suitable to conduct business type dinners with good sized tables and all serving beer and wine.
Taxi's are readily available at the front of the mall. The hotel makes arrangements quickly upon requirement.
An excellent supermarket is on the ground floor stocking all the essentials and more. If you smoke or like some drinks, this is well catered for. If you need to pack light, after arrival pick up your personal items there. I usually picked up fruit every second day for lunch. It is open until around 9pm.
During my stay, a new development directly in front of the hotel was being constructed. Last evening the construction barricades were removed to reveal a new shopping precinct yet to be tenanted. I have to say, it looked impressive. I have attached a photo of this. I look forward to returning to this hotel early next year to see the changes as this new precinct is filled.
Overview- A very comfortable and pleasurable place to put your head down to which I will be returning.
Great location and service
MaxYanDaddySuzhou, China | Oct 14, 2015 | Trip type: Business
Have been staying here for work in the past few months and I have stayed at other Somerset properties as well. If you need to be in the new district Suzhou, the location and convenience can't be beat. The hotel itself is inside a Mall, so dining options and shopping are plenty, there's a grocery store inside the mall as well if you want to cook yourself. Transportation is nice as well as there are taxis constantly waiting at the mall and there’s a bus stop directly in front. The mall just finished building additions such a movie theater and international brand names such as Papa Johns, H&M and GAP. The hotel rooms are a bit older but its clean and feel homely, the staff is very helpful and friendly and they will help go out of their way for your needs. Location, convenience and service is top priority for me. For the money this apartment style hotel can’t be beat. I would recommend this hotel for business travelers and for long terms stays.
Hotel and Apartment Complex; within shopping mall
Biggles18Biggleswade, United Kingdom | Oct 7, 2015 | Trip type: Business
Emerald City is a shopping mall in the new business district above which sits the Somerset residence, a complex of apartments, where a proportion are let on a hotel (nightly rate) basis. Rooms are set up with kitchen/lounge area (including washing machine and powder) and bedroom section. Self catering is a possibility but a range of eateries exist in the mall including Pizza Hut and Starbucks if you've had enough of eastern cuisine! It's about a £4 taxi ride to the central shopping area and Humble Administrators Garden. Hanshan Temple is a 10min taxi ride at most.
Great place, great location
Danny_ChinaSuzhou, China | May 11, 2015 | Trip type: Business
I stayed at Somerset Emerald City and had a great time! The staff were very attentive and helpful. The room was comfortable and spotless. The location in Emerald City Mall means there are plenty of dining options, and you're close enough to a subway stop to access all of Suzhou easily, without having to stay right in the thick of it.
Define your needs! Hotel or Flat
Skipper-Oldortmund | Mar 29, 2015 | Trip type: Business
Somerset Hotel is not a pure hotel, here you get a nice 2 room apartment; equiped with a washing machine and a kitchen.
I choose it always for staying over a weekend, this offers me, beside the hotel's breakfast, more freedom to prepare some food for my own "European" taste. All required food can be bought in the shopping mall next to the hotel.
Although a hell of civil works are ongoing in the neighbourhood since 1 year, I found a very familiar welcome and enjoyed the stay, as I had done several times before.
