Stayed here for a night part of our China Odyssey tour of Suzhou. From the outside the hotel facade is ok but inside and courtyard it is very well appointed and impressive. Check in & out is normal and we have found at most places that english is limited. Asked for non smoking room-extremely lucky if you ever get one!... More

As the name suggests, there are beautiful gardens here and the rooms are well appointed and very comfortable (including the bed), with wifi. Ask for a non-smoking room in the wing. The buffet breakfast is vast with a great choice of Chinese and basic Western choices. Recommended

Stayed here on a Wendy Wu tour. Lovely little place in a great location. Liked the gardens and the canal alongside the hotel. Plenty of places to stroll in the evening. Pity we could not have stayed another night. Would be happy to return as independent travellers.

Loved this place. Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful surroundings and a very smart bedroom. Location was great. Beds were a little hard but that's the Chinese way. Breakfast was chaotic and they need a designer to sort out the logistics of people movement but it wouldn't put me off. The Master of the Nets garden is nearby so you can... More

Every bit as lovely and well-situated as other reviews have indicated. Right in the center of the town, literally steps from the Master of the Nets garden and a RMN30 taxi ride from the Humble Administrators garden. A charming series of separate buildings within a gated, attractively-landscaped campus. Staff is friendly and willing to help – perhaps too willing (see... More

Non-smoking rooms were located in another building. If you have heavy luggage, a bell hop is available to help. Maybe it's the climate but the towels always feel slightly damp. There are free internet in the rooms with monitor and keyboard but we use our own netbook. Shower was separate from tub. It was in same area with toilet which... More

Garden Hotel is affordable for those on a budget wanting something more pleasant than just a hostel or cheap dive. Whilst it does not offer a pool; rooms are well placed and out of the way from the main road. The rooms, offering a couple of foreign channels including The BBC, are clean and beds are more than comfortable. The... More

My friend and I were doing an internship in Shanghai and decided to visit Suzhou for the weekend. After looking through countless of hotel reviews and comparing prices, we settled for this one... we definetely made the right choice! The rooms are affordable and comes with complementary breakfast. Our bedroom even had a view of the garden! Like most of... More
