I've been coming here since 2013 on business trips. Usually I stay for 10 days to 2 weeks. Last time it was 5 weeks. In total I've stayed here for around 12 times. This hotel is close to the factory and people here are friendly and helpful. I will continue to come here during my future trips.

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... More

Had booked a two bed room appartment for our family stay in Suzhou. Unfortunately we have been very disappointed. This place is fare behind other companies offering serviced appartments like Fraser. Rooms are small, humidity has left marks at the wall paper. Badly maintained. Staff with problems handling bigger amount of guests. Not worth the money!

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... More
