          Stayed 1 night in May 2019

          Average stay. Nothing special apart from great location!”

          Pros: 1. Location is probably the best part of this hotel, in a close walking distance to Jie Fang Bei and Hong Ya Dong. There are a lot of food options and subways are also in a close distance. Cons: 1. We disliked breakfast. It’s just average Chinese breakfast with not so good selections. For vacation, we probably consider other 4-5 star hotels around this price for better breakfast options. 2. Our flight is at 2am in the morning so we asked for half a day extension to check out at 11pm and pay extra because we thought half a day extension would mean extending checkout time to 12 hours longer. However, the hotel only offers half a day extension if you check out at 6pm (so technically only a few hours extension but being charged at half a day rate). We ended up paying for the whole night, which we don’t mind much, but we definitely are not impressed with the hotel. 2. We booked for studio room but got upgraded to the one-bedroom type with proper kitchen on the first night. We did not like our one-bedroom type. The room looks aged. There’s an old bathtub but not shower room (which we prefer shower room unless the bathtub is nice). The washing machine looked dirty and we didn’t dare washing our clothes. However, on the last night, we moved to the studio room on the 23rd floor (because we had a separate booking after failing to extend for half a day and ending up paying for full night). We must say the studio room on the 23rd floor is sooooooo much better. The room looks new and clean. It’s the Japanese toilet (with a lot of buttons) and there’s a proper shower room, clean and modern. The washing machine looks well maintained and clean. The view is also amazing. We can see the Jie Fang Bei Square and walk way from the room. We would strongly recommend the studio premier on the high floor instead of one bedroom (and we do regret getting upgraded during the first night as we truly dislike the one bedroom type).

          Can Be Better”

          We almost missed catching our Cruise for the Yangtze River trip. We collected our luggage from the hotel around 5:50 pm and waited to catch a taxi outside the hotel for almost an hour. After about 20 minutes wait we sensed we would be in trouble to catch the Cruise before 7 pm and went back to the hotel to seek help from the staff. Help they did by sending one of their staff to flag down passing by taxis together with us. For the next 40 minutes or so none of the passing-by taxis, even those with clear empty car signs, did not stop for us !!! The hotel staff told us that it happen in this manner almost everyday ! At our desperate request, the staff called aDidi car for us, by then it was almost 7pm ! Suggestion to the hotel is that it should Inform guests who will be going for the Yangtze River Cruise about this situation at peak hours and arrange alternative transports as a standard service instead of letting its guests going through the agony of possibly missing to catch the Cru

          Couldn't have picked a better place to stay”

          Located centrally in the downtown shopping area of Jiefangbei and only a short walk to one of the main tourist spots of Hongyadong and also to where the rivers meet. The rooms are small apartments with all the facilities one could want and are serviced daily. Admittedly I was upgraded, so for the RMB600 per night I paid, it was the best value for money I've had in awhile. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and the ease of getting around town on foot. The staff spoke good English and couldn't have been more helpful, which was extremely fortunate in a city where overall, little English is spoken and I needed help with taxis and getting to the correct destination on my departure. Would for sure recommend this place.

          Great Hotel in an Excellent Location..”

          Good: Great hotel in a busy location with great service and clean comfortable beds. There are many shops and restaurants close by and the Metro is less than a 3 minute walk away. Many attractions are within easy reach and buses will get further out so long as you can understand the timetables. Bad: Unless the room includes breakfast don’t bother paying for it as there are loadsa places to eat nearby. The only complaint about the room and bathroom is that they are slightly cluttered.

          Great location, excellent staff, amazing value”

          It could be that I just got a good price, but the value of this room was excellent. It's more like a studio apartment than a hotel room, with full fridge, cooking facilities and even a washing machine (not that I used any of them). Rooms were spotless and staff very friendly. The location was excellent, just a few minutes walk to either the Times Square area and Hongyadong (take a walk across Quianshimen Bridge for great views), and with a metro station also very close by. Definitely recommended.

          Ideal Location, Great Property and Helpful Staff”

          Our 5 nights stay at the Somerset JieFangBei is nothing short of amazing. We booked the 1 bedroom apartments which had awesome view of the river, mountain and highways. The rooms are big and cleaned. TV reception and wifi reception is good. Staff can understand English and mostly helpful. One staff readily offered to use her wipay account to help us book our excess baggage with WestAir. Only complain is the bedroom pillows were too soft for our liking. Breakfast is simple which can be further improved with regular replenishment. The hotel is very centrally located near XiaoShiZhi station (line 3) just under 5mins walk. Carrefour supermarket is near the train station. Many surrounding local food stalls, one bakery and banks. HongYa cave is 2 mins walk from the side entrance. JieFangBei is a short stroll away and so is the beautiful cultural centre. You can also take a 7 min walk to the rope tram (30 yuan return) to take in the city views. As we found the trains overly crowded, we mostly took the public bus (2 yuan flat rate). Take bus no 105, across from the hotel to the Chong Qing North railway station to go to Wulong County and 181 to the 3 gorges museum, both is less than 30 mins ride. A fun alternative to see the city on the bus. The Bayi famous food street is also walking distance. We enjoyed our stay at the Somerset and highly recommend for visitors to try it!
