Where to stay in Suzhou

The range of accommodations available in Suzhou reflects the diversity of architectural styles and historical periods on display throughout the city. Crossed by countless canals, the city's most atmospheric accommodations lie close to the knotted waterways, with modest guesthouses and hotels on the lesser waterways, and more luxurious options located in the more scenic canal areas. A wealth of modern development has left the city dotted with high-rise hotels, with the tall tower blocks offering rooms with an abundance of extra facilities and views over the city.
