I work in Suzhou (usual working hours in the week). I'd be happy to share with you my experience in the wonderful city of Suzhou, and I'm always glad to meet new people. so I hope to see you soon in Suzhou!
You'll have access to the whole apartment (kitchen, washing machine, sofa, wifi...etc). I'll give you the keys of the apt.
Interaction with Guests
I'm usually in the apt in the evening and during the week-end. If I have time, I enjoy sharing dinner or a drink with my guests. If you arrive in the week, I won't be able to give you the keys before 6pm (as I'm working in the day).
The apt is located at the entrance of the SND district (Suzhou New District). It belongs to a residence next to a very lively street with lot a restaurants, a university, small shops and a Shopping Mall 10mn by foot (RT Mart).
The subway is 100m walk from my door.
There is a public bus stop in front of my residence.
Other Things to Note
The appartment is on the 4th floor, with no lift.
I'll give you a spare key when you arrive so you're totally free of your movements (although I won't be able to give you the keys before 6pm in the week). Thank you to not smoke in the apt. The district is mostly chinese, keep in mind the cultural differences. Thank you!
I have to say it was refreshing to stay with Victor and I hope he’s able to continue to host in the future… and maybe that one day I can convince him and his lovely girlfriend to make a visit to DC. They were beyond generous and all the recommendations he gave me led to a fabulous trip exploring the city. He went out of his way to send me helpful links and detailed recommendations and even treated me and my traveling companion to a wonderful meal (which was going above and beyond). I hope he’ll update me with his new address so I can send him a care package from the states. The place was clean, orderly, he offered to let us do wash, and the bed was the most comfortable I slept in the 17 days I spent exploring China. Thanks again Victor!
The apartment is as described. It's situated near a subway stop and numerous bus lines, which is a big plus. The bed was big and comfortable and the bedroom window was overlooking a quiet residential lane. The communication with Victor was good despite the fact that he was several time zones away in France. I also appreciate the restaurant recommendations he provided as well as the ability to use his washing machine. I highly recommend him to any future travellers.
非常友善的房东。 一个法国人，对苏州的了解居然比我一个中国人（海外旅居）还多， 给了不少好的建议和帮助。感谢Victor 及他的中国女朋友Ling对我的真诚接待。
I enjoyed very friendly welcome from Victor. We shared very rich and interesting discussions concerning Suzhou, China and life in general. Victor has also been very friendly and of very effective support concerning practical issues as well.
Et pour ceux pour qui le français est quand même plus simple que l'anglais et le chinois, Victor les comprendra jusque dans leurs émotions les plus enfouies ...
I warmly recommend him and his service. Thanks, Victor, for the excellent moments we spent together.
Victor and Lin are excellent hosts. They are very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and accommodating. Our trip was much more wonderful with their advice and we are so lucky to have chosen to stay with them. Their home is described accurately. It is a very short walk to the subway. The room is very nice and we really appreciated being able to use their washing machine.
Thank you for everything!
Victor is a really helpfull host. Unfortunately we don't spent a lot of times with him but we share a meal. the room is very comfortable and close to the subway.
Victor was a great, friendly, knowledgeable host, we went out to eat and drink a few times, even a party! The location is also very close to the metro and generally easy to get around.
I'm working in Suzhou for a french company established in the New District (SND). If not working, there are many chances that you'll find me in a Starbucks studying Chinese, planing the next climbing trip, or maybe reading some exciting news about open source software.
Airbnb is a great way to get closer to a city, and whatever you're looking for, I'll do my best to help you find it ;)
