I recommend you book a hotelroom before you go to the hotel because when the staff see you are not chinese the prices usually goes high. Use a service like this one>>>. You usually are free to cancel the order if your plans changes. I found out that it coule be diffcult to find hotels where the staff where able to understand or speak english in wuxi. I have found a couple and are showing them on this page>>>
Green inn is a hotel that got nice rooms, beds and breakfast. But they do not understand or speak english so you need a friend to help you here. You could also use an applictaion like iTranslate when you get the wifi. I tell you some more about the hotel here>>>
A night picture on motel 168. It could be hard to find sometimes because it got a lot of trees in front of it.
On every hotel I visited I found waterboiler, water and powerplugs. You could buy a bowl of noodels on a supermarket and boil here but why not try the excellent breakfast you'll get for 20 yuan on most places? I show you some pictures here>>>
