Booked through Agoda for about RMB150 per night, and the place was good value, especially considering Suzhou seemed quite expensive for accommodation.
My expectations were just to have a clean, warm room with a comfortable bed and decent shower - and it had all of these, plus good free wifi connection as well. To put the review in perspective, the alternatives I considered were private rooms in decent hostels but not 4* hotels.
Location is excellent, walking distance to the central tourist sights (Guanqian Street, Pingjiang Road, Humble Administrators Garden etc).
When I first arrived, the room had quite a strong smell of smoke but they moved me to another room no problem (which was actually at the back of the hotel, with no traffic noise - worth asking for as it sounds like some of the other rooms can be a bit noisy). Staff were also pretty friendly, although seemed to speak limited English.
