It is not of great luxury but the prices a quite low .
So what You expect?
It is near to the town center and most of the rooms are far away from the Zhuhui Road, so not noisy.
the restaurant opposite of the hotel belongs not to this and is not recomended, but by short walk can go to shijuan jie where has good restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not in the annex

I stayed at this hotel on a work trip with a large group of my colleagues. We stayed in the 'annex building' next to the large hotel, which I heard is alot worse.

Customer Service
Plain RUDE and bad. B.A.D. Some of the rooms had bad smell in them and when I asked the reception to change rooms for affected parties, she basically said no. I had to push very hard to get them a better room.

Rooms
Some rooms had good airconditioning, others, like mine, had ZILCH.
I rang up housekeeping, they came up and tried not to fix it basically. They also tried to get me to accept the airconditioning as it was : blowing out air.
Then they asked me where I was from; Singapore. Then they asked, aren't Singaporeans scared of cold weather?
What has this got to do with airconditioning?!
My colleague asked for a fan in his room to help with the aircon - they didn't bring one to him. They also lied to us and told us there were no rooms available in the hotel for us to switch to. I knew this was untrue as I had just to settle our group booking that evening.

BED
the mattresses are as hard as planks. I had a very bad sore back and shoulders. I switched hotels after two nights because I wasn't getting any proper rest.


Breakfast
If you aren't a local, don't. basically it's porridge with some other ingredients. No coffee, no tea. only soya bean drink watered down. Even the porridge, you have to slurp from the bowl. no spoon. no napkins.

yes, this place is cheap and clean. if you are on a dire budget, go for it. but if you expect 3 star and above,better off staying at the Bamboo grove hotel, just down the street.

Room Tip: just don't stay here.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a group tour, and everyone on the tour hated the place and complained about it to the tour company. We were housed in an annex across the parking lot. That building had a sickening chemical smell - cleaning fluid, bug spray? - that was nauseating. Given that this is China, that odor was a concern. Opening the window did little to alleviate the odor.

This hotel has OK rooms but with the usual problem of having to wait an age for the hot water to arrive. The breakfast was OK. However, we arrived late and the Chinese restaurant opposite the hotel closed at 9pm leaving us to walk into town to eat which was OK when you're in a group but not if you're a lone lady or not very good at walking. The hotel does have a nice garden area has you might expect it to have in Suzhou.
