Very good location for walking to historic shopping and park. Dirty, smelly rooms with stains on carpet, mold in tub, horrible smells, musty smoky and just old. Changed rooms and finally changed hotels. Do not stay here at all. Beds feel like concrete.

Built in 514 BC, Suzhou is an ancient city with 2500 years’ history, located in the center of Yangtze Delta. The unique characteristics of the past are still retained in present-day Suzhou. It is renowned for the classic gardens, canals, silks, lakes, operas, legends and museums… The Gloria Piazza Hotel is well located, and we enjoyed our business stay. We... More

Checked in and the foyer is lovely. The rooms however are dirty and run down. There is a constant noise of traffic. The bathroom is terrible, all the fittings are run down and things like the plug and switch from the bath to shower were broken. It's not situated in the nicer part of Suzhou.

This hotel is old. There is greenish dark carpet everywhere and it smells. The rooms are fairly big but the mattress is as hard as the carpet floor itself. I can't stay there again and only did so because a business partner got me a booking there. Even the rate of 350RMB++ is not worth it especially with so many... More

The hotel was in a good location once we had worked out the 'quick' route through Old Town into the centre of Suzhou shopping area. The staff were really helpful. It is very popular with Chinese people, and the two shops seem very good value for money. We found that the hotel is a little tired and could do with... More

Hotel is located just two blocks from the new (and only) subway line. Staff works very hard to attend to guests. Lobby is clean. Elevator is sparkling. I had a standard room. Hall carpet is shows traffic stains. Television has CNN, BBC, CCTV English and many Chinese channels. Beds comfortable with nice white comforter. BIG FLUFFY WHITE towels. Rubber no-slip... More

The hotel is close to the main shopping plaza, restaurants, bars and clubs, only a Y10 taxi ride or 10min walk. Reception spoke GREAT english and they were very helpful. The room was clean and a good size. There is a well equipped gym and spa. The only down side, the aircon wouldn't turn off of heat to cool, so... More

Our mid-size US tour group of 27 adults departed Shanghai & this was our first overnight SZ stay after a busy multi-day schedule, checking in after dinner with a long bus ride - not the original hotel booked but an equivalent, NOT really. The concensus of the group while en route on the bus is that this is a 2... More

I was staying here with a tour group, so the hotel was included in the tour package. In overall, it's quite nice hotel. Room was clean and quite spacious, but the mattress was hard. They have gym on the hotel. Breakfast was adequate, and I think it was much better than other hotels we stayed in our China tour. About... More
