I am currently staying at Somerset Riverview Chengdu. The property is a great value! Seems centrally located for several good tourist spots. We have a very nice view from the 20th floor. Our room is very comfortable and clean with a small fully-functioning kitchen. Our housekeeper Gladys is so helpful and accomodating - she has been wonderful. The front desk staff have been very helpful as well. We have had breakfast every morning - good variety of choices for breakfast and good coffee. Don't hesitate to choose this place.
I like very much. The room are big and confortable. I love found a Washing machine in my room. The cleanliness of the room is also adequate.The breakfast is good. The location is very interesting because you can walk to many touristic places. It was good experience that I recommend.
We enjoyed our stay, mostly as a result of the helpful staff. They were always courteous and were able to answer our questions (at the check-in desk, on the first floor, shuttle drivers, and so on).
- Helpful, friendly staff
- Breakfast was quite good
- Room was large and comfortable
- Location was great - walkable to so many places in the city
- Great value for the price
- Full kitchenette included
- Peaceful, quiet hotel
- Slight musty scent to our room. It wasn't so off-putting that we had to change rooms, but it was present.
- Our washer did not include a dryer; this may seem a trivial con, but air drying in a musty room was a challenge - travelers who stay here for 1 day and intend on washing clothes may be challenged
We arrived late (after midnight) after 25 hours of traveling. So we were tired, we were pleasantly greeted by a lovely receptionist and were upgraded to a suite. We had a long sleep which meant that we arrived for breakfast 10 minutes before they stopped serving so there wasn’t a big selection left. The next morning we arrived early and there was a big choice. I can’t really comment on the standard as I only ever have croissants, fruit and yogurt all of which were available.
We had a pleasant coffee on our first day, in the lounge just of reception, in the afternoon but the tiramisu was a long time coming and when it did it was still partly frozen.
The hotel provides a comprehensive evening buffet. We were disappointed as the food, which was well prepared, was not hot.
The hotel is also within easy walking distance to the city centre.
We had a guide and car to take us to the Pandas, which are amazing.
An impressive looking hotel with good staff.
This gem in Chengdu is super good !
Location is excellent , within walking distance to the shopping streets and next to a river .
Room is large and very clean whilst bed / pillow are of good quality ( and a good night sleep !)
Breakfast is inclusive and the menu is different everyday so we are happy to taste new items over the 2 day stay .
Did not use the shuttle bus but it is available .
Cost is relatively cheap when compared to other large cities in China .
Take a look when you are planning your trip !!
