4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were in Suzhou in early April and originally I was looking at the Bamboo Groove hotel as I had stayed there previously. The Bamboo Groove was fully booked and in looking at the map of Suzhou, the Garden Hotel was just around the corner and very near the Master of the Nets garden. The room I booked was classified...

Good location, clean and complete with all the essentials. Set in lovely gardens, with a cute footbridge and coy filled pond. Rooms are average but clean and comfortable. A four star hotel that is expanding and improving. The breakfast buffet caters more toward the local market - BYO cereal. The title says it all.

We booked this room based on a couple of pictures and a great price off of a booking website. The pictures did not even come close to what we actually got. It turns out that our room was a two story suite with large windows and skylights that could be opened to let in plenty of sunlight. Downstairs we had... More

To be fair the title of my review says it all in a nutshell. The value of the room from using Booking.com was great, so part of the reason for the 4 stars rather than just 3 from me is just that - it's a good place to come if you're on a budget but have no interest in cheap... More

A very spread out hotel, but we stayed in the main building which was convenient. Our room was spacious, but had no view; flat screen TV, bathroom with tub/shower, supposedly “non-smoking” but the room had ash trays and matches (however, no lingering smell of smoke). The bed was very hard, even though we asked for additional padding. Breakfast was very... More

Of historical significance and apparently been around for almost 100 years, they claim to be a 5 star hotel, with the stars plastered everywhere, including the toiletries. we stayed here for 1 night Check-in was fine and this place has rooms spread over several buildings in the compound. Mine was pretty far in block 8 Thankfully the rooms don't feel... More

Our first sight of the place left us breathless... it was truly a wholesome china experience but with modern ammenities. yes, the room rates are a bit expensive for a room of that size and sure they can improve on maintaining the place (i.e. the ponds)... but the overall experience is just magnificent... from the deco, cleanliness, service, ammenities, location,...

My friend and I stayed here last month and the only thing good about it was the gardens! Beds were as hard as operating tables; service poor, hardly anyone spoke English. We ordered white wine; they brought red! We asked for soy sauce; they brought us some tissues!! The hotel Was in the middle of nowhere! The only other places... More

Stayed at this hotel last year and wasn't disappointed. The entrance lobby was beautiful and the room very comfortable. I thought this hotel was excellent value for money. Would definitely stay again.

I loved absolutely everything about this hotel - it was one of those hotels where attention to detail shows from the minute you walk in. From the light, pleasant scent wafting through the lobby, to the old Suzhou architectural details of the buildings, to the qin (traditional Chinese instrument) player in the evening... almost everything was perfect. The old part... More
