Traveler Inn Gusu Hotel

Reviewed 19 October 2013

This hotel has large rooms with a bar fridge. The dinner at the restaurant was very nice and had cheap white wine (38 yuan - white wine is hard to find in China). The carpet in the rooms was very dirty with stains on it and the bathroom door was very hard to slide shut. One of the bathroom towels had a big hole in the middle but this was replaced immediately once staff were notified.

I stayed here as a part of a guided group tour with Geckos Adventures. My hotel room was modern and spacious compared with other hotels on my tour. Great airconditioning and even a small bar fridge (the first i saw in China). Free wi-fi only available in the lobby area, not in my room.

I paid 38 yuan for breakfast at 8 am. All Chinese food that was cold as they don't keep it heated. Save your money and buy fresh and hot dumpling on the street instead. Or maybe get to breakfast as soon as they open.

Bus 501 nearby takes you within a 10 minute walk to the Humble Administrator's Garden and the Silk Museum. The last stop will get you to the night markets in the ancient section on town.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Traveler Inn Gusu Hotel as a part of a guided tour in early April 2013. It was a pleasant surprise! The room was clean, the bathroom quite modern, good location. The hotel offered a Chinese style buffet breakfast for 20 yuan. Good choice for Suzhou.

I was only there for two nights but the room was spacious, if a bit shabby and the hot water was patchy. It had a fridge which I didn't use so can't comment on but was quiet and clean and has wifi and the public areas are very clean and modern.

Breakfast was plentiful and varied, with both Euro and Chinese dishes, although they were a bit slow in replacing empty serving dishes.There's also a lot of tour groups using the hotel so breakfast can either be peaceful or extremely crowded with no seats and most of the food gone.

The location is very good and despite everything I've said, I'd certainly put it on a short list when considering Suzhao. Asking for a smoking room put me right up the back of the hotel, There's even a dividing line where the nice decor in the hall finishes and turns shabby and then there's what looks like the rooms used as a backup. It's only aesthetics though but if you're paying full price (which I wasn't) then I'd suggest you ask them for something nicer as my room looked absolutely nothing like the pictures, it was a lot shabbier and the walls were painted an interesting shade of green.

Room Tip: try and get one of the more modern rooms, they look lovely.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a guided tour. The hotel boasted a gym and a lake, both of whcih were very well hidden as I was unable to find them. At the side was a cleared area that looked as if it was about to be re-developed. I was there 1 night and found it in a convenient location for shops. It is a 2 storey building; my room was spacious and clean with a kettle, a hairdryer and the shower was brilliant, The staff spoke no English at all. Breakfast was awful with no cold drinks; the food was put in un-heated containers so was mainly stone cold. We were sent in a different room from the locals to 'enjoy' our cold breakfast

My wife and I spent a night here in mid April 2012 while on an Intrepid Tour in China. The hotel was average and met the 3 star category. It was reasonably clean. Had free wifi. A good buffet breakfast. The rooms were larger then I expected. The beds were firm and comfortable. Our room was at the back and was quiet. The staff's proficiency in english appeared to be limited but I felt they tried their best to accommodate our needs. I had to make a call to housekeeping for another roll of toilet people and before I put the phone down, there was a staff at our door. The location was good for a short walk to Guanqian St for shopping and restaurants. It was well located to tour the Master of the Nets Garden. For a night or two, it wouldn't be bad.

Stayed as part of a medical tour around China. Arrive to find a leaking hotel with bed linen covering the floors to soak up the water. Got in to standard twin room to find mould on the ceiling and in the bathroom, mosqauitos squashed on the walls all over, dirty bed linen, stains on the floor, burns in the pillows, leaking air con, very uncomfortable bed (floor would have been better), no internet connection.
Put up with this over night however got to breakfast to find the standard very poor would be an understatement! Did not even consider eating it! The buffest breakfast was next to a dirty tank of eels, frogs etc- very hygenic!
Location is poor in middle of no where.

Room Tip: Don't book here!!
