Sayed four nights in Somerset Emerald City SuZhou. It is positioned as "Serviced Appartments" rather than a hotel, but the main difference is a kitchenette. For those who need it - it's definitely an advantage. It is quite well equipped. Other than this it's a reasonably clean and combortable hotel room. The breakfast is below average but I never left...

The location was good, conveniently near to a shopping mall with good access to super market, bakery shop ,fashion stores and etc. The hotel staff were courteous and helpful. The most memorable one was the helpfulness of the front desk staff.... More

This service and accommodations are excellent. The Somerset by American standards is a cross between an apartment, efficiency, and a hotel. All the conveniences of home (laundry, stove, cookware, dishes, toiletries, refrigerator, freezer, etc.) with the additional benefit of having a world class hotel staff. BTW contrary to another review below the laundry is a combination washer/dryer, but if that's... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Somerset. Although the hotel is not located in downtown Suzhou, it is attached to the Emerald City Mall giving access to shopping and dining options.
