Well located and comfortable
Posted Dec 1, 2011
We stayed 2 nights at Suzhou Garden View Hotel in early November 2011. The hotel is more traditional in style than the other hotels we had in China. There is a very nice garden in the inner courtyard where we enjoyed our morning coffee.This is an ideal place to relax or check your email. There is wifi in the lobby and in the garden. The room was OK; it was comfortable enough, even though not very large. We prefer tile floors (or any hard surface), but the rug was clean, so it was not really an inconvenience. Our room was clean and the hotel seemed well maintained. Breakfast was included; there was a good variety and the food was good, but not outstanding.
The hotel is very well located, in the heart of downtown. Master of the Nets Garden, the Silk Museum, the Pagoda and the Humble Administrator Garden, all interesting sites to visit, are all within walking distance. The shopping district is on the next street; there is a Buddhist temple in the shopping area where Chinese go to pray and burn incense; this was a memorable experience for us. Lots of restaurants nearby also.
We would not hesitate to go back to this hotel.
