This is a strange hotel. It's comfortable in that the bed in nice, the bath is nice, the view we had looked out over a nice little Chinese style garden. Nice. It is a resort set up with lots of buildings sprawling across the property. Not ideal for me, especially when my key suddenly stopped working and I couldn't get... More

Nice and comfortable hotel with garden inside. Personnel is very professional and helpful. There is always somebody speaking English well. Located very close to Suzhou attractions - in walking distance to Lingering Garden and Jiezhuanglv Temple as well as Shantang Street (bit longer walk). It is also very close to the shopping center with supermarket.There is bus stop with tourist... More

Hotel is close to Lingering Gardens but far to most other attractions. Breakfast was good but only Chinese. Staff speaks English but some of them should be more oriented to customer. We asked them to arrange a taxi at 4 am to the airport because we had an early morning flight, they said OK. Then I double checked it and... More

(Not had yet) But some annoyances. The AC is not working. Its 25c in the room. When we complained we were told its still cold outside so... More

Despite others reviews, my friends and I had a great time here. Breakfast spread is great, there's a lot of variety. We had 2 rooms for 2 nights, and this is one of the cleaner hotels we've stayed at. The gardens throughout the hotel are beautiful, however it's just down the road from the Lingering Gardens. Also it was raining... More

We have been stolen from our room, the hotel its ok, breakfast also ok, most of the staff doesnt speak english but nice. The BIG problem was that someone took an earset(300€ one) from our room. When reporting at the reception they told us, a nice young lady, that they would check on cctv, after five minutes we've been told... More

Despite reading many contradicting reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try this place. They have 3 different categorie rooms. They are all fairly tired and drab looking. Some of the standard rooms have sort of a garden view, but the Windows don't open and they get very stuffy. The next categorie room is a little bigger, but are all overlooking... More

Loved my two day stay at Garden Hotel. My room was very quiet, comfortable, spacious and clean. Appreciated the extra touches like bathrobe and slippers. The hotel is about a 4 minute walk to Lingering Garden and 15 minute walk to entrance of old town Suzhou (and a Starbucks). There are a couple shops down the block on Liuyuan Road... More

This hotel had a picturesque koi pond and multiple gardens. The rooms were nice enough and the bath was a nice surprise. Breakfast was fantastic with so many options and the staff were lovely and helpful. The only downfall was the dated rooms and below-average air con which struggled to keep our room cool.

Initially a good hotel room on the fourth floor until the air conditioning was activated. This filled the room with a fine particulate haze in seconds and had to be abaondoned as it threatend to trigger an asthmatic attack. Changed to another room on the third floor and this seemed fine but after 15 minutes of low speed air con... More
