There are two "Garden hotels" in Suzhou as far as I know, but the Chinese names are different. This one means "The house outside the garden hotel", and it is located on Liuyuan (Lingering Garden) road. I had a suite, which was newly furnished, and extremely comfortable. The price was very reasonable. Absolutely no complaints with the room. The main... More

Quiet peaceful, low rise hotel set around a water garden. Access to the accommodation was along a covered walkway through the centre of the garden. The room was spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds and pillows, There is a good size bathroom with shower over the bath and large vanity top to place vanity bag and personal items.

The hotel consists of lowrise buildings around garden courtyards with pools, tastefully lit at night. The lobby is spacious and the reception staff friendly and helpful. My room was a little smaller than usual, but had everything needed, including comfortable beds and TV with BBC world service. Room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The window opened for ventilation. Free WiFi... More

Hotel is aiming probably for the local chinese business people and foreigners. I stayed there during my 2 week holiday travelling around China. After various quite simplistic accomodations it was nice to arrive to the hotel where you can flush the toilet paper, the floors have carpeting in the room, you have soaps, towels, hairdryer etc. for the same amount...

This is a pretty hotel, traditional in style, with a nice walk through garden area.... not a place to linger, no seats, but creates a nice ambience. The restaurant menu is local, a cuisine that may not suit everyone. Be on time for breakfast, it is cleared away more than promptly. The hotel is within walking distance of the touristy... More

This is quite a distinctive hotel environment with rooms arranged around attractive pond and garden areas. The lobby and bar areas were well organised and breakfast was good. The hotel is well positioned and quite near a busy shopping area. The room was a standard 3 star Chinese accommodation.

We were only here for one night as part of a tour group. The rooms are average for this type of hotel, with free internet in room. The grounds live up to the hotel's name - such a pretty setting of gardens and ponds. The canal is right outside the back of the hotel, handy for our organised boat trip,... More

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel with a group from my college. This was the nicest hotel we had stayed at for our duration in China. My room was in the building opposite of the lobby.I did not have to go up an elevator but though a great garden/pond. It was beautiful and a great place to hang out... More
