“A nice hotel for extended stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This hotel offers suite rooms that are one and two-bedrooms. These include a full kitchen and washer/dryer. Located in close to restaurants and shops, the hotel is a great value! Rooms include at least one complementary breakfast buffet that offers both Chinese and western options. All hotel staff are attentive, polite and speak good English. Our only complaint is that the air conditioning was not effective and the area can be congested due to traffic.

The service apt is located just next to the Jiefangbei pedestrian street and about 10mins walk from Hongya Dong (food, pubs, souvenirs). Very convenient! The rooms are clean but could be a little noisy if there's any promotional event in any of the shopping centers nearby. Airconditioning is centrally controlled and could be a little hot in April (no cold air conditioning as it is spring, despite that the temperature outside is around 28 degrees). However, a cooling fan could be provided upon request.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river are quieter.

The 2 best things about this hotel are its location and the comforts of the room. It's located within walking distance to the Xiaoshenzi (line 1) and Linjiangmen (line 2) metro/light rail stations, as well as the Jiefangbei pedestrian area, malls with nice restaurants, and bars and more casual restaurants along the river. We also appreciated having a kitchenette in our studio room, and a separate, albeit small couch to watch TV on. It made it much more comfortable to hang out in and relax in the evenings.

Other pros: clean room, good water pressure in the shower, decent view, good service, western and Chinese breakfast buffet choices, and best of all, free and strong wi-fi in the lobby AND room. They also had HBO, National Geographic, TV5, and other great satellite TV channels.

The only 2 cons were that the hotel couldn't find our reservation made through hotels.com, which was a bit of a hassle, and that our non-smoking room smelled of smoke. It was faint, but when I woke up in the mornings I could smell smoke in my hair. And this is very minor but important for people who debate whether to bring their own shampoo/conditioner - the shampoo provided smelled nice but made my hair very dry.

Overall, we had a great stay at this hotel and would do so again if ever in Chongqing.

Room Tip: Book on their website to avoid possible confusion with the reservation

The service apartment is located at the cental business district where you can find food and shopping easily. If you are game on trying local food, it can be easily found downstairs. Carrefour is a mere 5 minutes' walk away plus you can get cheap stuff at distributor price at the wholesale stores at the building close to Carrefour. Do bargain for cheaper price though as bargaining is norm there. The apartment is clean and comfortable, making it like a temporary home. Great to be able to have our laundry done on our own, saved alot on that! Great place for the price!

Room Tip: If you are travelling with a partner, the one bedroom executive is a good choice, it's spacious...

Unfortunately we only stayed for one night, back In August.

We had a two-bedroom apartment for our family of four.

The apartment was huge and extremely clean. It was great to have a washing machine/dryer in our unit - we had saved our washing!!!!

The location was great, walking distance to down town, markets, supermarket etc.

We would love to return to Chongqing and spend more time here and would definitely return to Somerset Jiefangbei.

Just one thing to be aware of, the reception charges for local street maps.

Everything was excellent with the hotel. The room was big, clean and had even a small kitchen and washing machine. Breakfast was very good and the staff was very helpful and good in english. Even the location of the hotel was perfect, in the very center of downtown Chongqing.

All parts of our stay in SOmerset was good, very wellcome staff. Nice room, all worked as we wanted. But some small points: we had studio for couple, but only 1 breakfast in price, I dont understand why, but I had to every morning explaine to waiter that I have to pay also one more breakfast...Strange, typical for china dont ask why, it is so. Info about surroundings from reception was really not good, they offer us chinese map for extra charge and I gave them back it with laughing, because it made no sense. No tips for restaurants and no infos about city. We had a guide and it was good, but who think that reception would help him - no chance. Lets catch first white one and ask.
