Stayed here for business travel, 2 nights. This is a decent hotel with all you need when business travel, and you can tell it is a “designed” hotel. The lobby and the front pool was very nice, but they don’t have a swimming pool. If you stay with Superior room or Suite, then you will have a nice view direct to the canal. Otherwise, the room would probably have a view of rear house roof.
I can’t tell this is a hotel located “in the middle of nowhere” as 10RMB~17RMB on taxi will bring you to the very center of the WUXI city, but the thing is, there is no other restaurants/entertainment/fast food etc. in your walking distance except those in the hotel. The room itself is very cozy, and there is even a small library in the hotel where you can borrow the DVD free and enjoy in your own room. Though the amenities are not “top brands” as those 5 star fine hotels offers, still, the quality are quite acceptable. The staffs are quite helpful and nice, the room service is always prompt. Something should be improved is the breakfast, please do not use ONE tea bag in the pot for the entire breakfast, for everyone. Some leaf breakfast tea would be a good alternative option with no/slightly cost increase. And… Please prepare a toaster… Overall, it is a boutique hotel if you travel on business.
