Chinese Boutique HotelPosted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: The atmosphere and courtyards
Location: Located in old part of city near a few tourist attractions - Ping Jiang Street, Stone Lion Garden, Humble Administrator. Not far from railway station.
Hotel is very pleasant traditional Chinese setting and spacious. Rooms are modern and clean. Facilities include Spa, Swimming Pool, Hairdresser etc. Very relaxing atmosphere. Was given an upgrade to a suite!

High end hotel in SuzhouPosted Sep 30, 2013
Pros: We ate burgers and spaghetti at the cafe (both great). The breakfast buffet is also good. Most of it is Chinese food but I recommend the omelets!
Location: Humble Administrator's Garden, Lion Grove Garden, and Suzhou Museum.
My husband and I stayed for two nights at Scholars Hotel. It was a great environment (300 year old garden!) with a clean, comfortable room. The bed was softer than most and the bathtub was wonderful. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Since we wanted to relax, this was a good hotel choice. Not too busy and very quiet.

So beautiful, I was taking pictures of my roomPosted Sep 3, 2013
We reserved the double bed, mid-level price room and it had TWO bathrooms, one with a soaking tub, huge open shower, and beautiful red Asian bowl for a sink, the other a basic bathroom with toilet and sink. Everything looked new and clean. The hotel easy walking distance to the Humble Administrator's Garden and the canals. The staff were very helpful showing us where to go on the tourist maps and spoke good English. The only surprise was how high the prices for massage were at the spa. We went to Dragonfly instead which was a quick taxi to the other side of town near the lake. I wish we'd stayed at the hotel longer and will definitely stay there next time.

Great locationPosted Jul 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
Located right in the heart of Pingjiang historic cultural district of Suzhou. Within minutes of an excellent and inexpensive restaurant on the corner of Pingjiang and Daru as well as the I. M. Pei designed Suzhou Museum. Other cultural and historic sites are only a short taxi cab ride away. Hotel room is very quite. Minor misgiving is that there is a smoking odor that is likely built-in to virtually every hotel room in China given the prevalence of smokers. Great landscape on hotel grounds. Hotel room is a welcome respite from a busy day working. Bikes available for rent -- a great way to see back alleys and how natives actually live in Suzhou.

If only the AC workedPosted Jul 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was pretty, clean, and staffed with nice and helpful and bilingual people. The breakfasts were great. However we were there in summer and Suzhou is very hot. The air conditioning was not up to the task of making it possible to sleep comfortably. It was possible to walk to two of the world heritage site gardens easily, which was great. In cooler weather this would be about perfect, in summer it is really too warm.

Gardens and canals close byPosted Apr 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was lovely and the staff very keen to help. The room was modern and very comfortable, but there was a slight mustiness to it as if it had not been used for a while. The breakfast buffet was adequate. The canals and the main gardens are within a short walk.

A very nice mix between local and western, location is great (near the canals) but there is nothing much else close
