Peaceful hotel in an Ideal location

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Really enjoyed my recent visit. A very peaceful, Chinese style hotel ideally located near to many of Surzhou's top tourist attractions. The rooms are large and well serviced. Excellent value for money. The staff are friendly and helpful, but struggle a little with English

Great location but unacceptable service

Posted Mar 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Location is fantastic. Pingjiang Lu is just at door's step. Rooms are big and well designed. Faultless hardware. Regrettably, hotel is let down by bad service. Given a room under maintenance on check in and had to make 2 calls and waited for 20 minutes before someone came to assist. Food and service in cafe was atrocious. Breakfast, though, was a different story. Great variety and good food. Stay here for the location. Just don't expect any kind of service.

Smell in the room

Posted Mar 9, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: No one wants to live in room with smells that may cause health problems. Use better materials which reach international standards.
I booked the hotel for three nights for my parents. According to their feedback, there was smell in the room. The staff assign them another room on the first floor which is so humid and cold that thay had to change room again. I was really disappointed to know that the hotel is not as good as I thought according to the reviews here. One thing good to mention that is the location is good, where is close to the tourist venues in the center of old city.

The historic area of Suzhou. Gardens, PinJiang Rd, and zoo all within walking distance. Enjoyed walking around and just taking in the sights and smells. You won't find a better location. If you need Starbucks and McDonald's nearby, this is not the place for you. Take a stroll through the Garden's and PinJiang Rd. Grab some street food and visit the many boutique shops. Of all the cities I've travelled in China, this was by far my most enjoyable stay. The hotel really made this trip enjoyable.

Very aesthetically refined hotel, lovely garden, all in keeping with the Suzhou literatti and garden tradition. Very conveniently located by Suzhou Museum and easy walking to many gardens.

Great Place for historical Suzhou

Posted Nov 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is a modern interpretation of the traditional Suzhou architecture. Well maintained and right next to the historical district and within walking distance to the Suzhou Museum designed by I.M. Pei. Enjoyed my stay.

Good tourist location

Right near canals, old streets and famous garden estates, this is a relaxed and comfortable hotel with good facilities and helpful staff. Large room, balcony, all mod cons including a printer in the room. Lovely gardens.
