“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I would like to say that this is one of the best places that my wife and I have stayed in since I have we have been in China and believe me we have traveled all over China . The room or should i say apartment is excellent value for money at $89 a night with every possible amenity close at hand. As for the the the staff they are very helpful and make you feel at home but lack a good level of English. The Building is located quite central with Starbucks just next door I would recommend this hotel for its value for money, great service and location

My husband and I have stayed there twice this year. Convenient location with cozy and clean apartments. Staff there are very friendly and helpful, from Front Office, House Keeping to Breakfast Club Lounge, everyone greets guests with a hearty smile. Delicious continental breakfast is served at Club Lounge, Ms Ginger Liu impressed us with her warm hospitality.

We have tried many 5-star-hotels in Tianjin in the past 10 years, Somerset Int'l Tianjin is most excellent property and we will definitely go there again for our future visits in Tianjin.

I just stayed one night. Nice room. Location hard to say it was good. Very few places to eat, the area is dull and not much life. Maybe that's just Tianjin.
Would not stay this hotel again. Maybe Hotel Nikko would have been more suitable as its near to malls etc

Hi Colin, we are happy that you enjoyed the room in our property but sorry to hear your disappointment about the location being not lively enough. For the eateries, it is our regret that we were not given the opportunity to inform you. There are quite a number of eateries behind the property, which are all situated in the 5th Avenue (one of Tianjin's tourist attractions) and also some in the mall at Xiao Bai Lou, which is approximately 5 minutes walk away. However, we appreciate your patroange and sincerely hope to see you again. Thank you,

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!

This hotel is conveniently located in the heart of CBD Tianjin and close to tourist attractions Wudadao. If you are visiting Tianjin for shopping, there malls and walks are all in the vicinity. The apartments are in a high rise office building and you can conviently find banks, a bar and starbucks right below. The staffs are welcoming and the apartments are huge and clean. The cleaners are helpful and the service crews for the breakfast are always with smiles.

My husband and I stayed at the Somerset for 7 nights and had a great time.
The location of this building is great. It’s about a 15min walk to the shopping district. The building is right on one of the busiest streets in Tianjin, so expect to hear some traffic noise.
We stayed in the one bedroom suite located on the 33rd floor. The view of the city from our room was absolutely fantastic.
There is a convinience store and a Starbucks right inside the Somerset building. Easy access to Starbucks made our jetlagged mornings a lot more tolerable.

Our room was spacious and fairly new looking, with plenty of built in storage space and closets. The bathroom was a good size. The deep soaking tub was a nice bonus after our 14hr flight. The full size kitchen comes with appliances, cookware, and utensils. They came in handy when we got tired of eating out during our stay.
The breakfast buffet had both western and Asian style food to choose from, but you do have to show up a bit early to take advantage of the better ones before they run out.

Some of the downsides:
Constant traffic noise from 7am to 11pm.
The hotel would not turn on the air conditioner before May 1st during our stay. It got fairly hot near the end of April, and we didn't want to open the windows on days where the air quality was poor.
As it is a Serviced Apartment, they did not have some of the typical hotel amenities such as spa, restaurant, or pool.

Overall, the hotel is excellent for its value, especially if you are looking for a "home away from home" experience.
