I stayed at the Somerset International, No. 75 Nanjing Rd, Heping District in Tianjin, in a one bedroom apartment for a week. Maria Zhang and the girls on reception were absolutely amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they would give me directions, write it in Chinese to show the taxi driver and always with a smile. The two ladies in the breakfast room (who didn't speak a word of English) would greet me like a long lost friend at breakfast and make sure there was watermelon there for me - always with huge smiles. Lisa who cleaned the room every day was lovely and, again, nothing was too much trouble. I even got to know the mail man in the basement! When I left the girls at reception bought me a present and all came out to wave goodbye. I felt so special and sad to leave. It was a great place to stay and I would go back in a heartbeat!
