I had an excellent time staying at Soochow 1779. The staff members do not speak English, but they will readily use translation apps to communicate with you--and if you speak Mandarin, they will be incredibly helpful. The breakfasts are fantastic; every day, different Suzhou specialities (mostly different kinds of dumplings and buns) are served with congee, pickles, and fruit. The rooms are well maintained, though the building is, indeed, 240 years old, and sound is transferred fairly easily between rooms and between the courtyard and the rooms. The staff will happily provide a list of recommended local restaurants, performance venues, etc. Of the many places I have stayed in China, this was perhaps the best experience--uniquely Suzhou, a bit premodern, but very pleasant. N.B.: The hotel cannot be directly reached by car; it is about 100m away from a main street through a small alley. The staff will try to call you with the hotel's precise location and door code the day before you arrive.

這是有2百多年的建築,保養非常得宜,故此坐落位置有點隱秘。一到民宿,接待員便熱情的招待,講解此建築的歷史,金主辦民宿的目的,附近遊玩好去處。整個民宿由進門一刻以至房間,都保留著原有的味道,我很是喜歡!從沒想過只從電視見到的宅院,如今竟整個呈現眼前,我還能親身入住!房間內接近所有家品都是木製,裝飾吊燈及壁畫都別出心裁!浴室內的用品亦很貼心! 這民宿真的很讚,真的想多住幾天!

①立地 獅子林、平江路まで歩いて数分の利便性の高い、歴史的な地区です。 ただし、蘇州駅からはバスに乗る必要があり、最寄りのバス停からのアクセスについても、初めての方には難しいと思われます(直前にホテルから行き方について中国語でメールが届いていたようですが、確認できませんでした)。 ②建物 建物は築240年の歴史的な建造物であり、そこに滞在するだけで貴重な経験を得ることができました。また、室内の設備等は最新のものが用いられており清潔感があり、インテリアデザインもセンスがよく、非常に快適でした。 ③ホスピタリティ スタッフの方の言語は、基本的に中国語のみですが、日本人の我々に対して、翻訳アプリを用いて、丁寧にコミュニケーションをとってくれました。 オススメのレストランや蘇州の観光地の周り方等、ガイドブックにない現地ならではのアドバイスをもらい、限られた時間で有意義に観光ができました。 また、朝食は、蘇州の特産が使われたメニューで、大変満足できました(ただし、8時からなので、若干前倒ししていただけるとありがたかったです)。
