    Superb

    A very pleasant hotel with a large room. Staff were friendly all over the hotel.

    The hotel is near one of the Suzhou gardens but at least 10 mins by taxi from anywhere else of interest. Taxis were rather hard to come by near the hotel.

    There are at least 2 hotels with the same name in Suzhou. This is not the one with the 5 star rating. The location is good as the famous Lingering Gardens is just 50m across the road. For the price we paid on the deluxe room, it's good value. The room is clean and with free wired internet. The complimentary breakfast is average. The reception staff is helpful as they purchase train tickets for us (with service charge) and the tour guide recommended was good.

    There are condoms, sex oil etc inside the bathroom for sale. It's ok with us but may not be suitable for family with young kids.

    Superb

    The canal area but we asked a number of hotel staff how to get there (I forget the entire name of the canal/shopping area Seven something) but could never get the same answer so a taxi driver finally knew where it was. The concierge should be a little more knowledgeable about their city. The western breakfast was great. My daughter has been in china the entire year and breakfast cereal is what she has missed the most. I think she cleaned you out of that the two mornings we were there! Beautiful setting. Walking distance to the Lingering Garden was nice also.

    Designed with a Chinese-styled garden, the hotel provides a classic ancient Chinese settings, compatible with the scenic spots in the city. Yet the hotel needs some kind of refurbishment, and the carpets inside the rooms are not very clean, but suprisingly, I can sleep well with no mosquito attack, thanks to a tiny electronic device. And I don't find anything less than necessary, so given the price, this can be ranked as a satisfactory experience.

    Very good help of staff of hotel to find your way in town and in contacting my last hotel where I accidentally left my credit card. Very high language abilities of staff.

    I suppose i stayed here because of other's comments.. which i now dont quite agree. Its not bad considering the price paid.. but its certainly not like one guy who "violently recommends it" .. thats deliberate exageration. Its interesting in that the theme is chinese and not yr western decor. this is suzhou afterall. The garden in the centre is nice.. but we got a room without a view... there are rooms with floor to ceiling windows.. just not ours. And we supposedly had a deluxe higher grade room. There were condoms and sex oil and stuff in the room for purchase.. so not sure you would bring children here.. and got us thinking what category of hotel this was.

    The staff are friendly. The courtyard is nicely done up.

    The carpet in the room looks dirty with several stains mark.

    Beautiful hotel, plenty of smaal shops nearby. Reasonable non-chinese breakfast options

    Location, far out centre Suzhou and taxi drivers do not tend to take you during rush hour

    The photo of the hotel and room they took is exactly the same as what it is, and staff are helpful.

    We ordered an executive room, and the requirement is quiet, but the wedding at ball room is too noisy that we could hear it even in the corridor.

    Services and facilities are fair. Hotel has garden in classic chinese style. Near lingering garden

    For a hotel billed itself as 4 stars, it is more like 3 star. Room is not so clean. Only one lady at the reception can speak little English so if you needs their assistance when the that lady is not there, you are on your own

    Very good

    Thought it was a great hotel until I went to check out and found that I had paid double. Once to Booking & the other at the hotel. Booking as of yet have to return my email.

    Great Hotel

    Very good value for money

    I have booked 2 rooms. One for me and one for my PhD student. We had a spare day between Nanjing and Hangzhou and decided to visit Suzhou. Unfortunately they reserved only one room... In our case it was not so critical but usually such jokes can be terrible.

    Good hotel beds wet a little hard ,and rooms were good

    Hard beds , the hotel was very busy with tour groups and conferences,which detracted from a quiet stay.

    I stayed Garden hotel for one night with my friend. location is good(in 10mins by cab from Suzhou station) hotel staffs are very friendly! and chinese classic garden which is inside of hotel is fantastic!!!! I like there very much!!

    Superb

    The service is impeccable! The staff spoke English, open the doors for you, take your wet umbrellas - in short, they made you feel that as their guest, you are important to them! The breakfast spread was also VERY good. My man, being German, enjoyed the choice of an English breakfast & ate wholeheartedly there! The hotel has a very nice setting of an ancient garden which gives a very peaceful environment. You will be able to find many facilities around the hotel - Banks, small eateries (which i don't recommend as the kitchens there is VERY dirty. Better eat in the hotel), supermarkets & even the lingering garden which is a tourist spot in Suzhou... all within a stone's throwaway.

    No complains. We have enjoyed our stay in this hotel completely.
