Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).End of dialog content

눉The room I was assigned had an ac unit that dripped loudly the whole night. When I woke up in the morning , I found my bag that was sitting on the counter, completely drenched (ruining important documents) and there was a puddle on the counter and floor. When I explained this to the staff, they nodded like they already knew that was an issue. It was also a little difficult to find the entrance to the hotel. I was able to find it with the help of some locals by showing them the address. Even though booking.com says they take credit cards, they don’t! This was an issue as it ate into my cash reserve ,and when I went to a local bank to use the atm, the machine kept my card!
눇The hotel is right next to all the action! It’s situated right next to the canal where you can take a boat ride. It’s also relatively near the metro ( about a stop away from the station where you can take a 30 min bullet train to shanghai and back) and a popular street market. There is a cafe attached to the property that is open to outside patrons and hotel guests. The staff was very nice and accommodating. You’ll be greeted by Chow Chow the dog and a beautiful grey cat.

눉There was no payment by card. There was no breakfast, even though on booking it was mentioned that it is availabe for additional price. May be we just asked in such a way that the stuff did not understand us. Poor flush in the toilet.
눇Very close to the metro station and located in a very spectaculous touristic street. Normal shower, sophisticated toilet panel. Friendly staff and very-very cosy inner yard. It was fantastic with flowers and small trees, you could see the stars and have a romantic evening in that quiet place. Also there were two big and very friendly dogs and a an elegant cat.

눉First of all the rooms are quite shabby. But it does not matter a lot. what I did hate was the dog. I am allergic - so I am not fond of them. But this one is really hateful. It barks at night. On our night there it started barking at 4:30 in the morning in single barks. Every half a minute or every minute. untill 5 o'clock. You can imagine it was impossible to sleep at all. Our room was on the 1st floor. with windows overlooking the terrace. With people sitting there talking till late in the evening it was not hard to sleep as well. There was a table with an ash-tray on it. when someone does smoke - all the smoke goes into the room. And as for the staff... They are not there during the night, only the dog. I asked the girl to call me a taxi early in the morning. She refused, afraid that the driver will call her so early in the morning. Told me there were buses. I asked her to check if they run at 6 o'clock. she made me wait for 40 minutes for it (it took her 2 minutes to look in her phone), she even washed the dishes with me waiting for her!!! and the information she gave me was wrong: she said they start at 5, but they start at 6 from terminal station. If I was not lucky just stopping the taxi in the sterrt, I would have been late for my train. So the experience is totally bad. will never stay there again.
눇The location is great: near the metro station, very close to the railway station, the main tourist street is just there. There is a nice terrace inside the hostel

눉The bed was very hard...even by Chinese standards! The main reception area smelled horrendous...like wet dog and dampness. Though advertised as there being an option for breakfast, the bar/easting area was largely unkept and no-one was around to help us. We ate across the street and a delicious noodle place. I wouldn't really want to eat there anyway, given the smell.
눇Great location close to subway and Shantang Street. The room was small but had everything we needed.

눉The hostel is cheap so don't expect any frills. It's as basic as it gets. The exterior looks pleasant but inside - it's run down, paint chipping, water damage on the walls, it could use some renovations. The bedroom is okay - I stayed in a 4 person bunk bed room, there are lockers but I noticed some of them are broken, there's aircon, pillow, bedsheets, duvet and shower slippers that I didn't dare touch! The bed was really hard, I may as well have been sleeping on the floor!
눇Super cheap hostel and well located. It's one tube stop from Suzhou railway station and really easy to find once you get out of the metro station. Internet was superb! Works well in the room and is super fast! The bathrooms and toilets are clean but bring your own toilet paper in case theirs runs out!
