The apartment is in the middle of town. Very spacious and clean. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The furnishings are good too. My husband and I enjoyed our stay there very much. Will definitely go back if we go back to Chengdu. The breakfast was good but can be improved a little

No complaints about the Somerset - this is a very good no frills economic choice well located in downtown Chengdu.

The hotel is located right on the river - very picturesque. Subway...
