“Recommended for the budget traveller.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

Well located. Near shops and restaurants. Walking distance to the Master of Nets Garden. Basic clean accommodation. Street outside the hotel was under repair and the open sewer made it a smelly walk back from the main road, but this is probably temporary.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2011

Good-sized rooms and everything worked. Passable breakfast buffet, though coffee tasteless. Staff have little English, but did best to help when questions arose. Some of the halls smelled a bit moldy, but this is a wet city so that may be unavoidable.

Walking distance of Master of the Nets Garden.

Hotel is average. Price is decent, so if budget is of priority, this is an option. Room is spacious, but rather basic furnishing. Hotel is not too new, so furnishing is a bit aged. I had mosquito problem in my room, which is rather annoying. Mattress is pretty hard, so depends on your preference.

Location though is pretty good. Long stretch of shops within walking distance. If you have some time, recommend a hair wash at salon on right hand side of main road. RMB15 for hair wash plus half an hour of head/back massage! Incredible value for money.

PS : If you are doing a Shanghai tour and covering Suzhou and Hangzhou, would highly recommend Crystal Orange Hotel in Hangzhou. I went both places. For an equivalent price, Crystal Orange is definitely a MUCH better hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2009

I stayed here one night with a tour group and it was the most luxurious place I stayed in in China. It was extremely modern, extremely friendly, HUGE HUGE rooms and overlooked a gorgeous picturesque water garden.

It's in a bit of a strange district with some odd shops ("100 happy foot massage" etc) but is in a great location in town to see lovely gardens and do canal tours.

I totally recommend it for the room's space and cleanliness. There was also a supermarket just around the corner on the "main" road.

We couldn't figure out, however, how to turn the a/c to heat and asked reception. They sent a maid around who talked very hard and fast in Chinese (we didn't speak a word!), flipped a few switches and buttons and went on her way leaving us gobsmacked. Her service was awesome though, and heat started pouring out!

I truly loved this hotel. The "Business Centre" however, was a small room with a single computer with the slowest internet access on the planet. The computer was also all in Chinese which made things interesting!! You could get wireless in your room if you could figure it out from the Chinglish instructions.
