Despite others reviews, my friends and I had a great time here. Breakfast spread is great, there's a lot of variety. We had 2 rooms for 2 nights, and this is one of the cleaner hotels we've stayed at. The gardens throughout the hotel are beautiful, however it's just down the road from the Lingering Gardens. Also it was raining... More

We have been stolen from our room, the hotel its ok, breakfast also ok, most of the staff doesnt speak english but nice. The BIG problem was that someone took an earset(300€ one) from our room. When reporting at the reception they told us, a nice young lady, that they would check on cctv, after five minutes we've been told... More

Despite reading many contradicting reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try this place. They have 3 different categorie rooms. They are all fairly tired and drab looking. Some of the standard rooms have sort of a garden view, but the Windows don't open and they get very stuffy. The next categorie room is a little bigger, but are all overlooking... More

Loved my two day stay at Garden Hotel. My room was very quiet, comfortable, spacious and clean. Appreciated the extra touches like bathrobe and slippers. The hotel is about a 4 minute walk to Lingering Garden and 15 minute walk to entrance of old town Suzhou (and a Starbucks). There are a couple shops down the block on Liuyuan Road... More

This hotel had a picturesque koi pond and multiple gardens. The rooms were nice enough and the bath was a nice surprise. Breakfast was fantastic with so many options and the staff were lovely and helpful. The only downfall was the dated rooms and below-average air con which struggled to keep our room cool.

Initially a good hotel room on the fourth floor until the air conditioning was activated. This filled the room with a fine particulate haze in seconds and had to be abaondoned as it threatend to trigger an asthmatic attack. Changed to another room on the third floor and this seemed fine but after 15 minutes of low speed air con... More

Room was average, outdated and not perfectly clean. We stayed In the second building. The breakfast served big Variety of Food but it was very... More

I liked this hotel, very nice layout with a quaint courtyard water garden are in the middle. The room was nice and clean although I did spot a splatted mosquito on the wall. The bed was a little hard but still comfortable. The bar in the Lobby are was a disaster. The "Barman" if you could call him that, was... More

This Suzhou Garden hotel is excellent. The rooms are large enough, the shower is good, the beda are fine. The breakfast has lots of choice, although breakfast starts at 7.00 am, which I find late (6.30 am would be better if you have or want to leave at 7.30 am). The staff is friendly and speaks sufficient English. I can... More

We stayed here with an organised tour on Chinese New Year. The gardens are lovely, filled with water features, fish and bridges. The rooms were spacious as was the bathroom WiFi was excellent in the room at no extra cost, however our corridor and room smelt like a drain, which was a shame. Unfortunately they do not cater very well... More
