I live here for more than 2 years. It is a great place for business expats of short/medium term, single or couple... for families with small kids Somerset has other facilities around and more adapted for kids. This is an executive service apartment, calm, clean and safe... western style furniture... good ambience.
The location is perfect, right at downtown close to everything you need. The staff really makes your life easy and let you focus on your job. Ok... not all speak english but, after all, you are in China... great opportunity to learn Chinese ;-)
On top floor (36th), there are a new gym, a new restaurant (for breakfast only) and, a new nice living room... great view of the city of Tianjin while you do your workout.
The apartments are well equipped. You find all basic things you need. If you don't find, ask them because they may surprise you. It seems they will also remodel the old apartments. the new ones are really beautiful...wow...some Ascott's apartments don't have this level!!!
Of course, there are some cons: the TV system and internet are not so good but they are trying their best to improve the situation. Missing a swimming pool here but you can use a good one at Somerset Olympic.
I do recommend Somerset International... you will feel at home!!!
