I would like to bring a group of 17 grade 3/4 students to the Botanical Garden and stay overnight some place close by that can house 17 kids and 4 adults. Do you have any suggestions of places to stay and activities in the gardens? thanks

Too far to walk. At a guess I would say 35rmb in a taxi from Luohu Station.
Can I get here by subway?
