    Superb

    Very comfortable beds, wonderful shower, and very accomodating staff. Central location allowed us to walk to all the local gardens. Amazing food street only 5 minutes away. And the hotel's outlandish decor actually can make the experience quite refreshing.

    Superb

    The rooms was very big. Very good, clean and modern compared to other hotels I tried in China for same price.

    The hotel staff spoke a poor english, and they could not help us in the matter of questions for how to get to the sight seeing we wanted to do, because of bad knowledge or bad english.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Very friendly staff with good command of English, very nicely acquipped rooms and soft beds. Very quiet in spite of being in the middle of the city.

    Some difficulty to get a taxi directily to the hotel. The restaurant can be slow.

    Very good

    Location. It's near the centre of Suzhou, but it's quiet

    The buffet breakfast was not up to 4-star standard,despite being expensive (compared to other hotels in China). The decor is weird. The bathroom is tiled in black, and is separated from the main room by a see-through glass partition. Air-conditioning did not work in the bedroom. This was in October, so the management probably decided to switch it off, but the room did get unpleasantly warm. The staff was not very knowledgeable and mostly had very limited English. For any complicated request, you have to explain to them in Mandarin.

    For the price, best chinese hotels I ever stayed in. Don't miss the wonderfull breakfast buffet!!! Location in middle of Suzhou, close to bus stops of the main Suzhou north-south bus lines.

    Very good

    Hotel Soul is a modern hotel with big, comfortable rooms right in the center of Suzhou, on walking distance of inportant sights and still pretty close to the railway station.

    The staff of the hotel did not really help with questions that were beyond the direct scope of the hotel, such as questions about trips to make or making a reservation for a taxi. According to our reservation breakfast would cost an additional Y 49,00 but they actually asked Y 68,00.

    It is a very comfortable hotel with a good breakfast spread. It's excellent value for money.

    The decor is a little kitsch, but it is definitely is clean so it doesn't matter.

    Fabulous

    - Nice, original design (although some people might not like the trendy style) - Very central location

    - Where exactly is the "juice bar"??? - Empty minibar - One of the basin's taps didn't work.

    Exclusive

    The hotel staff was very nice. In the begining they gave us a room and when we got there there were 4 people fixing the AC, so my husband went to the reception and they upgraded us to a suit and gave us 2 double breakfasts! It was a really big room and we liked our stay there very much. All of the reception staff knew very good English and where nice and helpful. The location is amazing. right at the main street, close to the shopping area and to a lot of restaurents.It is a walking distance from most of the gardens. The breakfast was very nice and the food was fresh.

    The decoration was a bit weird, though my jusband liked it.

    Superb

    Staff speaks great english. The soul theme is very obvious throughout the hotel!

    Taking a taxi requires a quite a walk since the hotel is right on the business street. The same is true if you try to take a taxi back to the hotel, since they tend to drop you on the other end of the business street instead of driving you to the front door of the hotel. This was particularly annoying during the typhoon...
