Good location for seeing the sights and boating on the canals. Lovely gardens, classic style and all the modern amenities. Quiet atmosphere. The hotel offers an excellent buffet breakfast suitable to all tastes. The executive floor rooms are especially nice with private balconies.

Hard to get a better location if you want to stroll along the canals of Suzhou and visit some of the best gardens (like The Humble Administrator's). A few yards from a canal and opening off a bustling but characterful road of infinite small shops, the Scholars Hotel is built in traditional Chinese style, with a small "willow pattern" formal...

We were happy with and helped a lot by an English speaking font desk Young Man, Peter, (he even gave us his phone number if we needed and help). When we arrived the bath tub had not been cleaned, a few lights were burnt out, and the save would not lock, but Peter made sure that those problems were taken... More

My parents, My husband and I visited Suzhou in April 2014. We stayed in Scholars Hotel for two days. Overall it is an alright experience. We love the appearance, building style of this hotel. It shows the beauty of Chinese traditional building style. This is unique comparing to other hotels we stayed in during the Spring trip. We also favour... More

If you go to Suzhou, it's really best to stay in the centre of the old town, not in one of the flashy new hotels by Jinji lake. This hotel is decorated in a traditional Chinese style and blends in perfectly with the surroundings. It's luxurious but not fussy. I had the cheapest room, about 600 RMB / 100 USD,... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful authentic Chinese decor hotel. The service is excellent and the staff are very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. There are a lot of choices in the breakfast and food is good. There is also a restaurant, teahouse and coffee shop. There are beautiful gardens and it is very relaxing to sit or drink... More

The location is really fantastic: 5-7 minutes by taxi from the railway station (if the traffic jams are not so big) and short walking distance from the main gardens, museums and shipping areas of this wonderful city, and the most picturesque canal is just around the corner! The rooms are very much different (the building was not an hotel originally),... More

My GF and I have lived in China for one year. I travel a lot here and stay in a lot of Chinese (non-global chain) establishments. This was the best local hotel I've stayed at in China... For the service, location, and value. Huge, spacious rooms, comfortable lobby, and helpful service from all the staff, including where to sightsee, etc.... More

We had two nights at the Scholars hotel and were very happy. The hotel had lovely authentic Chinese decor and gardens and rooms were very comfortable and with everything you need. The staff were friendly, breakfast was good and it's in a good location. It was a few minute walk to Pingjian Road, a lovely little canal street with little... More

The stay at this hotel was average.....for the money we spent, it should have delivered more. When we opened the door to our room, the first thing we noticed that the cleanliness was substandard, with the cutlery still dirty. Not a good start. We rang service and a lovely lady explained that the cleaning was contracted out.....so....and they moved us... More
