Howard Johnson Garden Plaza Yixing

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

came here for a work-event.. very cold outside and snowing and all public places in hotel (lobby, corridors etc) unheated - freezing! in addition to that, terrible staff, no bar, no roomservice and the checkin staff asleep under a duvet behind the counter and unwilling to get up to check us in. pretty much a normal china hotel experience, but you'd think an international brand would do a little bit better.

was a pleasant journey in Yixing Howard Johnson quiet lobby with nice staff Like to sit at the lobby bar for a cup of cappuccino room Service need more choices overall was comfortable

it was a pleasant journey to Howard Johnson Yixing Plaza nice staff nice Service seamless check in and check out beautiful unique set up in the room like a home away from home hope to come.back.again

Superior rooms are wonderful,staff and service was just perfect,the pepole on the staff always remember me and take special care of me.

Amazing attentiveness and customer service.friendly staff, speaking English. Very Large rooms and huge bed. Gym is bit small w limited equipment. Ok breakfast, limited choices for vegan with celiac. Chef really made great effort for dinner menu.

When I say Crazy Chinese, I say it with love. This Hotel offers a little western getaway in a city full of crazy. Generally speaking, most westerners to the town will be business folks so don't need to stay all day but if you happen to just want to kick around the hotel there is a pool and gym that are clean and well maintained. Plenty of free wifi and the lobby is lovely to sit and people watch whilst grabbing a pot of tea. You can hire cars and organise drivers from here too with ease. A safe area to walk around and close to many Yixing attractions. Dont be afraid to go for a 10 minute walk, you'll find parks and tiny eateries serving up local foods, generally noodles and dumplings in this area. You'll generally pay about $100us a night which is steep for hotels in the area but if you want ease free then this is one of about 3 in the town to go for. Sensational buffet with every thing on offer hot and fresh, World cuisines and tonnes of choice.

Hotel is kind of old, and the location is not great, there's not much around, 5 min walk to a local store if you want to get a bottle of water or beer. OK breakfast, big indoor pool and gym; friendly staff but amateur service. Overall, it's not bad, you get what you pay for.

As with all Chinese hotels check in was both chaotic and confusing. But the property was very nice, clean and well kept. Rooms were very spacious with decent wifi. Restaurant had great meals and staff were very friendly. I would definitely return if the opportunity were to arise.

Amazing hotel.Clean rooms.GYM and swimming pool.Reasonable price.Good breakfast options.I still like to visit Yixing and now stay at Howard Johnson Garden Plaza for Pleasure.

I stayed in Yixing for 2Days and Howard Johnson hotel leave me very happy experience ! There is a live band in lobby lounge. A forest garden is close to hotel! Highly recommend!
