The hotel was booked through our travel agency and we have been worried a bit due to the tripadvisor rating. Finally we have to say that the hotel is ok for one or two nights. It is located about 10 minutes walking from the beautiful old town. Check-in was fast but staff was not that customer oriented. The room was...

The Riverside Hotel (where's the river, by the way?) is not clean, but it is noisy, dark and dank. It's in a back section of Suzhou not conducive to exploring. The parking lot is problematic. The only thing in its favor is easy in-room wifi. I stayed there as part of a tour and did appreciate the wifi when compared...

We at first were excited about staying at the Riverside hotel. Our room had a nice hardwood floor and a weird (but charming) tiny 'study' with a chair and bookshelf. However, we were very unhappy with our stay. The staff couldn't speak english, and wouldn't get a taxi for us the next day -- they insisted we walk to the...

“The new building (opposite reception) has an elevator, so it is easier for you to take the baggage to the different floors. The older style building has no elevator so one has to walk up the stairs with the baggage (no porter).”
