“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We enjoyed this hotel very much. The room was lovely and the breakfast was very good with chinese and american breakfast to choose from. There was a shopping centre right there so there was stores and restaurants close. We were on the 9th floor so the view was great especially at night. The only problem we had was the elevator was really slow and sometimes didn't stop at our floor. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great location near a large shopping precinct. A large, well appointed room with nice bathroom but the manager pre-sets the air conditioner to 26 degrees and as the days were 37-40 deg, this setting was too hot to be comfortable. Especially as it is nice to have respite from the heat when sleeping. The bed and breakfast were all good but there was no WiFi in the room, only in the lobby.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but the road side is very busy with traffic although noise is not a problem.

Hearing that I was reserved for the Howard Johnson hotel in China. I remembered back when I was a child staying at the drive up motels with restaurants attached to them. Is it the same in China?

This new Howard Johnson is far from that. It is a high end very tall Hotel with some of the best rooms ive stayed in China.

First the Good -- The hotel is very modern with large rooms with glass walls that look straight out. That means people can look in, but they do have blinds to close. The bathrooms were very large featuring bathtub and shower with two shower heads. Free breakfast was featured in our rate and it was very good with a large selection of breakfast foods for guest from around the world.

Now the sort of not so good -- The hotel is located in the SIP, in a quiet part of the SIP. Yes there are restaurants and stores about 2 blocks walk away, but the area is tame when compared to hotels in the old town of Suzhou were the city is alive with things to do. Other little issues I had was with the carpet in the rooms. It is a off white that shows dirt and foot paths which could create a bad first impression. I also noticed hair that was not vacuumed up at the edge of the bed.

If you like the Christmas season this hotel is for you. Being August the Christmas / Seasonal Greetings decorations were still up.

Negatives aside I would stay there again. Some would say my negative of the hotel being quiet is a good thing, and they may be right. But its worth a look if you are staying in the SIP.

Overall nice hotel but nothing stands out. Big rooms - had a receiving area apart from the bedroom itself. Usual ameneties. Weak wifi in the room, though you can ask for LAN cable from staff for your laptop. Strong wifi in the lobby.

Rooms were kept clean. Hotel breakfast was quite good, varied spread. Staff were generally helpful. Good choice if you have business in the industrial park, but if visiting the old town, you might want to check other hotels closer to city center.

Pros: Big space, clean and comfortable rooms. We booked online and they upgraded us to a lakeview room. The Jinji Lake is great to walk around at night - a ten minute walk there, and then there are nice canals, lit up restaurants, a good mix of Western, Chinese and Japanese/Korean. I also liked that they have some sort of deal with a taxi company, such that it was always easy to get a cab. The concierge was helpful, too, and helped us plan our trip to Tongli.

Cons: We came at Chinese New Year and there was some kind of tuangou discount, and checkin was VERY chaotic - people jumping lines, not very systematic, basically my mild version of Chinese hell.
The rooms are spacious and took a VERY long time to heat up.
A little bit far from central Suzhou if you want to go to the tourist sites.

This Hotel-appartment is really expensive if you just drop down to get a room. Better to book by internet in any case.
The evening buffet is mainly done for Chinese, and the chef has very little experience of occidental cuisine.
In fact, I really wander why they propose occidetal cuisine, as only the soup in nearly occidental, everything else is a poor copy .
I will advise to go early if you want to eat, but do not be scare of the noise and very poor dining education of chinese customers.
The price is far over the average, éèà Rmb for a bad buffet, without drink.
Beside this the ladies doing the service are dedicated, and if you ask they will help you a lot. Their english is enough to understand and some of them have experience in Italian restaurant.
The hotel is correct, but cleaning is really of the fastest speed I have ever seen. So, do not look too much in detail, mainly if you have to stay for few days or weeks.
For long terme stay, better to bargain for hotel and buffet price including breakfast, in this case the bargain could be aceptable.
Beside this 2 TV in the room, airconditionner are working, water is not drinkable but they should provide bottle everyday.
The only very good point will be the acces easy, the parking which is really big and clean and with correct light. The taxi could be call by the consierge at any time.
Location is ten minutes by foor to Ligondi, and 15 mn from other commercial areas by taxi.
Railway stationSIP, 20 minutes.
In week-end do not expect to sleep in morning or early evening, the building is from 1995 quality, poor noise insulation( general in China) and chinese family never educate their kids, so could be very noisy.
Apart of this they have a swimming pool, just to relax is OK, do not expect to swim for 1 km, mainly if you are tall.
Enjoy your stay.

I would stay away from this hotel, the only way you can get hot water is to ring reception and then house-keeping will come to your room stand on the furniture to get out of the window to switch the heater on. Seems this is normal dfor Suzhou HOJO. Do not stay here unless you like cold showers!
