This is a no-fuss hotel. Efficient and straight forward. If you look for a place where you are received with a friendly smile, accommodating, a kind welcome, this is clearly not the hotel to stay. Location is right in the center of the old town, rooms are spacious. During our stay, 95% of the guests were Chinese and the breakfast... More

Nice room, big, and they have already set the air condition for you so it's nice and cool when you arrive. Friendly staff but they don't really speak English. They were not able to help with any information regarding tourist attractions and trips because of the language. The food at the hotel restaurants are over prized and not worth your... More

This hotel is close to many tourism attractions and has free shuttle bus to a few spots. It's about 40 minutes drive to Suzhou Railway North Station (not Suzhou Railway Station) and many taxi drivers know the place which makes it easier to find the hotel. We had a pleasant stay there. The Internet is fast, the breakfast has a... More

Stayed here for 4 days for a little midweek away. The location is absolutely perfect, just one street away from (what looked like) a main shopping street. It was easy to find taxi's (called by the staff) and busses (a bit further walking) to go anywhere. The staff was friendly and spoke quite good English. They were very willing to... More

I stayed here for three nights and I was very satisfied. I chose the hotel because of the design and the location and I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is just a few meters away from Suzhou's main shopping street and all sights can be reached on foot, too. I walked to the Humble Administrator's Garden with a detour via Pingjiang... More
