I had a large, one-bedroom suite with a guest bath and small terraces off both the bedroom and the living room. The rooms were huge, comfortable, and nicely decorated and there was a full-sized desk in the foyer area. But I don't think the carpeting had been vacuumed in quite a few days and the decor was beginning to look... More

Location: great location right near the pedestrian street. Easy walking distance to many great restaurants, gardens and the Su Zhou museum. Room: though billed as a 4-5 star hotel, the room quality suggests it is around a 3.5 star at best. The rooms are a bit outdated, and worn. There was a faint smell of cigarette smoke throughout the corridors.... More

The location is what makes this hotel worth considering. Right in the middle of the pingjiang district and nearby many of the historic sights. Rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The bathrooms have an unusual and not very practical layout, but are also clean and well maintained. Don't fall for the pretty pictures of the pool and gym on... More

The hotel is located in the northeast corner of the city, close to the Suzhou Museum, the Humble Administrator's Garden and Pingjiang Road. While the surrounding neighborhood is fairly busy, the hotel is a serene cluster of buildings with a "half garden" of its own. Our room was spacious and well-appointed; my wife's friend (who was travelling with us) had... More

So, there is much to like about this hotel. Pros: * The location is fantastic -- right off the delightful Pingjiang street with it's wealth of shops and street dumplings, and a 15 min walk from the Humble Administrator's Garden & 10 min from Lion's Gate Garden.. * The rooms are nicely appointed. Each room includes a (presumably "scholarly") scroll... More

The Scholars Hotel is ideally located for many of the tourist sites around Suzhou. A very comfortable hotel with helpful staff. We were lucky enough to get a room upgrade. Nice, clean, comfortable and the breakfast was pretty good too. The hotel is also set in some lovely grounds that are worth having a look around.

There is a lot to like about this comfortable, calm, peaceful hotel. Firstly it is located right slap bang in the centre of old Suzhou, on the junction of a quiet(ish) road and a canal, within very easy walking distance of nearly all the main sites, museums etc. on the tourist trail...It would make no sense to stay at a...

Having decided to stay there to celebrate my 30 years old birthday, i kinda was expecting a lot and they definitely delivered. The hotel is gorgeous, the room/suite spacious and nicely furnished, the bed very comfortable. As for the location, it is obviously perfect, 3 minutes away from humble administrator. The restaurant is really delicious and the private dining option... More

The Scholar made us feel comfortable from the first moment. Very friendly staff, competent reception, warm athmosphere with books, calligraphy, paintings. Rooms quite modern, but comfortable and a great breakfast ( just the service concerning breakfast could be improved).

The hotel is within walking distance to the gardens and the city centre. The service was great and the room was nice. I only stayed there for one night and the only downside was that I didn't quite like the bathroom. The plan of the room was not what you'd usually expect. The shower and toilet were placed at different... More
