Suzhou Pingjiang Lodge is converted from an ancient complex of houses in Si-jin style, a traditional Chinese architecture that contains different compounds of courtyards and rooms to form a main axle. It was once the Residence of the Fang Family in the Ming Dynasty. Constructed in the old Suzhou style in the middle era of the Ming Dynasty, the Main Hall of Pingjiang Lodge has a history of more than 450 years and it is the oldest part of the complex.
It has been inherited for 7 generations. The gold-gilded pattern on the rooftop can still be barely seen. The Lodge preserves fine detail, delicacy, and beauty in Chinese architectural style. Here, you can experience the typical landscape and classical aura of Suzhou.
Located in the Suzhou Pingjiang District, Pingjiang Lodge allows easy access to different sightseeing spots such as classical gardens and former residences of ancient celebrities. This Suzhou hotel is a five-minute walk from Guanqian Pedestrian Street and a five-minute drive from Humble Administrator's Garden and Suzhou Museum. It takes about 1.5 hours drive to Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, 2hours to Shanghai Pudong airport, and 3hours to Hangzhou and Nanjing respectively.
