The hotel per se is nice, beautiful garden, nice lobby friendly staff, but almost no one could speak even basic English. Nice spa with nice swimming pool but open to the public (even with swimming lessons for local kids) and not directly connected with the hotel buildings. Plentiful breakfast, mostly with local food, and maybe a bit overcrowded. Very expensive... More

Yes, 8 milliion isn't exactly what we call a small city, but this hotel makes you believe that you have left the noise and bustle of those millions as it embraces you in the sounds of Chinese music, a quiet bubbling Koi pool, and rooms that are luxurious spas. Everything is quietly and tastefully arranged to give you the feeling... More

This hotel with ancient Chinese gardens with stones and pools and historical buildings is beautifully maintained and kept. Every part of the hotel and grounds is aesthetically well thought out and planned. The staff have tremendous pride in the hotel and this is reflected in the level of service. The lobby has a garden pool, and in the evenings enchanting... More

This hotel used to be a state official accommodation for high rank officers, because the low usage it has been renovated to accommodate general public. The building and garden are well maintained, many outdoor spaces and very quiet compare street side hotels. It is very close to the master of the Nets garden which is a classic one you must... More

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

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...
