Great views from a great hotel, complete with a number of restaurants of different styles to ensure everyone can be happy. Rooms are spacious, and service was good given we were in the back blocks of China. Food was also good, making for a great relaxing experience in this historic part of town.

This is a lovely hotel, but for us it it too far out of the way. You must catch a taxi as you cannot walk anywhere. The beds and room service was great although I think the breakfast was only average by top hotel standards.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tongli Lakeview Hotel was launched in 2004, which proudly presents the Jiangnan Chinese Garden spirit in its 100,000 square meters venue. The main structure of the hotel is putting a few crucial concepts: The shape of jade and the structure of Hakka earth building complex. The colors of the architecture are mixed with Suzghou garden culture and Shanghai Mansion. Hotel presents a collection of rare Chinese stone, antique and precious cultural heritage. Hotel is not only equipped with state-of-the-art facilities but also offers guests a tranquil Chinese cultural elegant atmosphere. The hotel has been rated as a "Golden leaf green travel hotel" by Chinese National Tourism Administration. Which means it holds a belief of sustainability, green production, green consumption and green service. Many "Golden leaf" hotels in China have already used these green concepts. However, Tongli Lakeview Hotel has done much more than that. As strolling in the yard, you will also see old trees saved by gardeners, old parts of Suzhou house, and ancient paving stone with hundreds of years history. These precious heritages from different dynasties and varied places have found their new lives here and will live with our descendants for more centuries. Architecture Design The main structure of the hotel is designed by Architecture World from Taiwan. Using a few crucial concepts: The shape of jade and the structure of Hakka earth building complex. The colors of the architecture mixed the Jiangnan garden culture with Shanghai Mansion. Shape - Jade Tongli's history can be dated back to 6000 years ago. During mid 1970s, there was the "Song-ze Culture", which was famous for its jade-ware. Tongli has been an abundant and rich society since then. Hotel is using the shape of jade jue (half-circle shaped are jade artefacts) as the design concept of the hotel. It offers you to indulge into the vibe of traveling back to the ancient time. Structure - Hakka earth building complex The structure design of the hotel is originally derived from Hakka earth building complex, using core concepts of: The central axis, yard design and aisle design, and putting all the concepts together to create a beautiful and modern building. Hotel's first project was putting the main building of the rooms, using the circle structure - inner circle as public area, outer circle as accommodation. The public area includes the lobby, restaurants, well-being centre, boutiques, gallery, meeting rooms, etc. The second project is using the squared earth building complex. Hakka earth building complex of Fujian province has already became world cultural heritage, it is one of the most characteristic housing styles of China and of the world. Nowadays, we know very little about this authentic way of living, the hotel is bringing this concept to its design to provide guests this authentic living style experience. Color - White wall, Gray tile and Coral brick As you traveling in Jiangnan, you will always be drawn into the elegant combination of the white wall/gray tile architectures. Buildings in Jiangnan has always using this minimalism spirit to create harmony with the nature, which resonate the concept of Chinese garden planning philosophy. The outlook of Tongli Lakeview Hotel is using these two minimalism colors but also using a special-made kiln burned bricks to create a similar looking of ancient Shanghai mansions. This combination brings a visual freshness to guests staying at the hotel. ... more   less
