Change is in the air at Hotel Soul


Suzhou, China, January 20, 2017 / - Hotel Soul, Suzhou's first designer boutique hotel, is delighted to announce that change is in the air. From the opening of a brand new set of executive suites, to the launch of a number of new food and beverage promotions at Bar Soul, Hotel Soul is set to introduce a number of exciting developments that will elevate guests' stay to an extra level of luxury during their time in Suzhou.

After nine-months of careful planning and creative design work, Hotel Soul is proud to showcase a collection of four brand new executive suites for the discerning luxury traveller to choose from. In keeping with Hotel Soul's philosophy of juxtaposing elements of modern and traditional China, these suites take their cue from the design concept of a traditional Suzhou mansion, albeit with a contemporary twist. Paying homage to historic Chinese architecture, the suites mirror the layout of the traditional classic ‘siheyuan' by incorporating a separate living area, sleeping quarters and bathroom in the generously-sized 55 square metre space. In addition, bright jade green feature walls in the living room, and muted earthy toned themed bedrooms prove a subtle yet stylish way to bring a taste of the beautiful gardens of Suzhou straight to your suite, mimicking the effect of the ‘siheyuan's' typical courtyard space. To complete the space a few secret surprise design details feature amongst the suite's corridors to ensure an opulent, garden-inspired living concept at every turn.

Modern elements of the equation feature in the overall environmentally-friendly design of the suites; flexible application of LED lights and large windows (with excellent views of the distinctive traditional rooftops which define the old city district's skyline) work to enhance energy efficiency, giving the suites with abundant natural light. A further update which takes the design into 2017 is the array of modern luxuries the suites have to offer. An indulgent bathtub, complete with a stock of exclusive toiletries from British luxury brand Gilchrist & Soames, allows guests to enjoy an optimum wellness experience. Meanwhile, luxury hospitality services and amenities, such as complimentary 24-hour Wi-Fi connection, a Nespresso coffee machine, and complimentary use of the mini bar, are sure to make every guests' stay at Hotel Soul truly extraordinary.

In celebration of the launch of these new executive suites, Hotel Soul has designed an exclusive Business Traveller Package* promotion starting from only RMB1,888. From now until 30 March 2017, not only will guests enjoy a one-night stay in an executive suite, but a selection of VIP privileges will also be available for their use. These privileges include personal hotel pickup service, late check-out, and a selection of complimentary offerings (including use of the Meeting Room, dining vouchers, one hour of free-flow at Bar Soul, and a classic French-themed Afternoon Tea Set at Brasserie 101) to make guests feel like they are fully at home at Hotel Soul.

Over at Bar Soul, Hotel Soul's edgy resident watering hole, change comes in the form of two exciting new food and beverage promotions. Riding on the European-themed design of the bar, Bar Soul is excited to take its guests on a gastronomical tour of Spain with a traditional Tapas Delights Set** (RMB98). The set includes a selection of classic tapas dishes, including the Spanish tortilla, marinated olives, garlic shrimp, and prosciutto with cheddar cheese. Make like the Spanish and pair these Mediterranean delicacies with a glass of sweet and fruity Sangria (also included in the set) – it's the perfect way to relax after a long and exhausting journey. In addition, don't miss out on Bar Soul's exclusive Happy Hour deals**, available between 5pm and 8pm daily and featuring buy-one-get-one-free on selected wines, beers and cocktails, followed by live band performances every Thursday to Saturday, for a perfect evening of relaxed fun.

The new executive suites and food and beverage promotions at Hotel Soul have been designed to offer guests the ultimate luxury VIP experience. For more information please visit Please contact (86) 512 6777 0777 or [email protected] for bookings and enquiries.

*The Business Traveller Package is available upon prior reservation only and available from now until 30 March 2017 (subject to blackout dates).

29-year-old Australian social entrepreneur and founder of Koala Hill, Kyle Williams has a passion for China that started at a young age when he began learning Mandarin.

"I've always had an affinity with China's people and its culture, and this connection has lead me to wanting to share one of the best parts of Australia with them.

"Clean air is such an important part of staying healthy, and our aim is to provide relief to people living in areas with poor air quality. In fact, customers have already reported that the products have helped and they love them.

"I am humbled by the support our products have received in our first week, and now we're trying our best to keep up with demand," Mr Williams said.

"With all our air certified to Australian Standards and processed at our modern facility in South Australia's pristine eucalypt forest, we are the Ferrari of fresh air."

White Paper: Giving Face on Facebook – Managing a Winning Facebook Strategy From China


Shanghai, China, January 5, 2017 / - There are more Chinese users on Facebook than there are citizens of over 170 countries around the world. There were 52.87 million Chinese users on Facebook in 2016, and the number is forecast to grow to 54.39 by the end of 2017, according to figures from Statista (Digital Market Outlook).

With this growth comes opportunities, and Facebook has been reaping rewards in China since the middle of 2014 when it first announced the opening of an office to handle advertising from Chinese customers. As Facebook’s advertising clients increase, more Chinese businesses will want to know how to effectively utilize Facebook to reach customers outside the Middle Kingdom.

Press release distribution and media data company China Newswire has published its latest White Paper "Giving Face on Facebook – Managing a Winning Facebook Strategy" to help Chinese enterprises understand the high-level methods used to employ a profitable Facebook strategy.

“With a face towards the West for future growth, more Chinese companies want to use Facebook as a social media tool for communication and brand exposure,” says Danny Levinson, CEO of Shanghai-based China Newswire. “Many Chinese companies rely on buyers outside of China, so it’s important Chinese businesses understand and utilize their social media tools effectively to generate good return on their investments.” 

China already has its own social networks and social messaging platforms such as WeChat and Weibo, but Facebook gives Chinese businesses access to important markets outside the Middle Kingdom. Sourcing, manufacturing, and hospitality businesses inside China all rely on Western customers to build the Chinese economy.

The free Chinese-language white paper titled "Giving Face on Facebook – Managing a Winning Facebook Strategy" is available for download at
