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

Set amongst lovely gardens incorporating board walks and koi pools. The rooms can be a long walk from reception, but all under cover. The lift is small and slow, but it beats the stairs.Rooms are large and comfortable. The lingering Garden is a short stroll, and a little further you find Pedestrian Street, full of restaurants and variety stores. There... More

My wife and I only stayed one night as part of our Wendy Wu tour. As compared to some of the other hotels we stayed in during our 21 days in China, the Garden Hotel was pretty good. The room was alright but had a (background) lingering smell of tobacco smoke even though it was supposed to be non-smoking. The... More

It's a nice hotel to stay. The location is convenient quite convenient as it's quite nearby to some of the sight seeing venues. The hotel staff is very friendly. Though they can't really speak much English but they can at least understand a few basic English words. They managed to accommodate to my request as my friend wrongly booked the... More

The hotel is very nice with a classical Suzhou gardens style. Very beautiful. The staff is very helpful and take care of their guests. The rooms however were very small and let's say mostly functional (bed, TV, bathroom, wifi). A bit dusty and old style too. The rooms are good to sleep in but not to hang around during the... More

Stayed 1 night at the garden hotel in Suzhou. The room was well located to the lingering garden and the k mall is nearby which is useful. We had one of the newly refurbished rooms which was clean and spacious with a good bathroom and fancy toilet. The only complaint about the room is that the walls must be thin... More

the hotel is right across from one of the famous gardens of Suzhou. It's also within walking distance (30min) to one of the cool night markets in Suzhou. The night market is definitely worth visiting. The bedrooms were fine and the usual hard beds for china standard

The location of this hotel was great, and within walking distance to the K-Mall. It is also close to tourist attractions (that is why we chose this hotel). Just like to name of the hotel, its layout is pretty with rock gardens and fish ponds around the hotel. We enjoyed walking to the main lobby as it was so pretty.... More

Decent rooms for a good price Good restaurant on site Smoky (not unusual in China but if you're a non-smoker the constant odor of smoke gets annoying) Pretty public areas with gardens and close to the Lingering Gardens, but not very close to much else in terms of Suzhou sites and not very accessible via metro. Taxis and buses can... More
