We loved this inn. Spent three nights. We had the best meals of our entire China trip. The staff was pleasant and several spoke good English. We walked the village and drifted down the river on bamboo raft. Still have great memories of this inn.

It's probably best to enlist the help of a tuktuk driver (albeit of questionable legality, since he gets you in without an official tourist entry/attractions ticket) to lead you from Xitang Bus Station to Secret Garden - our man drove us a short way into the scenic area, then walked us through his house(!) and 15 minutes' worth of bewildering...

We arrived today. We caught the bus from South Shanghai Bus Station as buses leave every half hour. If you go straight to the information desk they will help you as they speak great English! Bus took 1 hr and then a tuk tuk driver took us to our hotel. We gave him 100 cyn and our tickets at the...

Previous trips to China's quaint water-villages were day-trips, but this time at Xitang (西塘) we wanted to experience an overnight stay. We started by searching for inns along the canal-margins which would give us a water-view, but finding one in Xitang with a total of 6 rooms for our group of friends was a big problem. Finally, Secret Garden---exactly 6...

My friends and I spent one day in Xitang and boarded in this little inn, each room furnished differently. Our transport drove us right to the back door where we could unload the luggage. The young ladies manning the inn were all helpful and pleasant. At such a reasonable rate, I found the stay comfortable enough.

From the Xitang corridor you have to walk for a few yards (meters) in a very narrow alley. At the end of the alley, you'll see the entrance to the hotel. You can't miss it. The receptionist could speak a little bit of English. She was extremely sweet and she apologized probably a million time for her English, that was...

Interesting little guest house with 8 rooms (big for Xitang) in the heart of the old water town. None of the staff speaks English but with a smattering of very basic Chinese we got by. The staff went out of their way though to assist. We called the hotel from the station and someone came on a scooter to meet...
