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

Although we stayed only a night, the whole setting was truly amazing.....we feel like we were in a typical chinese establishment with a truly modern touch. In short we were 'lost' in the past with a pleasant feel. The furnishing of the whole place including the rooms were something extraordinary and high standard. The service right from the check in...

Great entrance, artistic ancient Chinese style lobby, nice garden, very friendly and very attentive and helpful staff. Very good location too, in walking distance to a nice canal and some parks/gardens. But it didn't deliver the fancy boutique feeling you'd get when looking at their website. The rooms were clean and all, but it felt all a bit dark and... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as it was rated 5 star. Our first impression of this hotel was that even though it was meant to be authentic it did look a bit run down. The breakfasts were adequate with more leaning towards Asian visitors but we could get reasonable food. The problems started when we realised that... More

This hotel is situated about twenty yards from the the tourist are of the canals with lovely shops and bars to visit. You will walk past a shop where they are cooking in the street and a long queue of chinese people are always waiting for their food - so we had to see what the fuss was about -... More

This hotel has beautiful well equipped rooms but lacks the sophistication that one would expect to go with them! Our room had a coffee machine but no coffee or milk. The book of Services lists a 'Celebrity Lounge with signature cocktails' but when we asked at reception we were directed to a small area by the breakfast cafe where we... More

We only spent one night at the Scholars and first impression was of a beautiful and elegant looking hotel. Good location and with great character. The room wasn't ready when we arrived so we had breakfast at their restaurant. There was confusion as to where breakfast was actually being served and after a few staff went backwards and forwards we... More
