The Garden Hotel, as the name suggests, is contained within a garden compound. The hotel buildings are scattered around a rectangular area which was formerly a private estate and still contains several pre-revolution villas. Our room was tastefully decorated and spacious, although as luck would have it, it was the furthest room from the elevator in our low-rise 3 storey... More

We found the room too dark especially the bathroom,dark slate floor and tiles gave a cold feel.There was not a master switch and the last night I couldn't switch one of the small lights off... More

The Garden Hotel has lovely grounds and is well situated in town. Our room was big (I think it was called the family room) with 2 bedrooms, 2 bath. It was great that my son got his own room. Good bathroom, and a sitting room to put your make-up on. The only negative were the beds (both of them) were... More

Walking into the hotel from Daichengqiao Road you cannot fail to be impressed by the hotel's sense of style : but that's where it seems to end! As some one once expressed it to me "all hardware, no software!" - perhaps 4 stars of hardware, barely more than 2 stars of software! The receptionist was surly ( perhaps we were... More

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
