Had only one night in Suzhou and took a chance on this hotel. I wasn't disappointed. I arrived on an early train from Nanjing about 8:30 in the morning, and the staff had a room ready and let me check in immediately. I had reserved a 'business double" and received a 4th floor room with a double bed and a free computer with fast internet. Which was fabulous, since I didn't bring my laptop on this trip. The room itself was small but bit enough to hold the bed, desk, an open hanging/shelf area for clothing, and a chair. The bathroom was large enough and had a nice shower (no tub). The wall/door separating bedroom and bathroom was completely transparent glass, so perhaps this works best for a solo traveller. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well, and the air conditioning was nice and cool. Everything was spotlessly clean.
I did hear a little bit of noise (loud conversation, TV) from the room next door for about an hour one evening, but that was it.
Location was quite good--Renmin Lu is the main street of central Suzhou, and a major shopping and restaurant area is only about a 10 minute walk south. I was also able to walk to the Humble Administrators' Garden in 25 minutes. The Silk Museum and the large pagoda are about 15 minute walk away. Most of the other Gardens like Master of the Nets--a quick and inexpensive taxi ride.
