I should have trusted the recent reviews rather personal experiences of 3, 4, and 5 years ago; when at the time this hotel was slightly dog eared but clean and excellent value. Now it's a shambles, dirty, smelly the worst hotel experience I've ever had at any star of Hotel. Every facet of the room other than the bedding, was... More

Agree with the many reviewers – this hotel claims 4 stars but it’s practically just 3 by international standards. See it that way, then everything makes sense. Right, the ventilation was not good. The air was stale but not unbearable. True that cleanliness of the room was less than perfect but overall acceptable. I stayed in a “suite” with a... More

Except the location, I cannot find any good reason to stay in this hotel. The hotel is extremely poorly managed and I would not recommend to anyone nor come back myself (even for the good location sake). It is NOT a 4/5 star as it claims - it is max 2/3 star in Chinese (not international) standard. If you plan... More

This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in our entire life It used to be okay 2 years ago....but the hotel has become so run-down and dirty now. Upon opening the door, the odor is stale and unbearable. It felt dirty already. There were nuts/debris on the floor inside a supposedly clean room when we arrived. We changed... More

This a China rated 4 star, so that means at most 3 star in western ratings. However, this is great value hotel for this area of Shanghai £50 a night, you cant fall off. It's a little dated inside but the rooms are a good size and clean. Stayed here 5 or 6 times over the last few years, my... More

it has been one year since my last night at golden tulip, and i can tell you the few changes were not for better. the hotel is complete outdated. for your idea, it is still with tube TV's. so for sure you can find better options not far and for descent prices as well. the best part of the hotel...

Visited this location in the spring of 2013 and found it less than stellar. Stayed here again on a recent trip and things had not changed much. The staff is friendly and the location is great. The rooms need significant changes and the carpets are filthy in all the rooms and the hallways. The beds are hard as a rock.... More

I don't even know where to start from... The smell in the whole hotel, corridors, rooms, lifts is so disgusting, like old fried food. After a few minutes all your clothes, hair and body stinks like fried food. Rooms are very old and disgustingly dirty, I could not take off my shoes. There were stains on the carpets everywhere (I...

This place is in desperate need of renovations, so it's a good thing they are undergoing some right now. We had a suite, and while it was spacious, the room was very worn out. Carpet, tiling and paint can all be updated. The beds are also insanely hard, so if you are not used to sleeping on firm mattresses, be... More

I stayed here because it is very close to Meilongzhen Plaza, where I needed to do my US visa interview. Even not considering that, it is a superb location surrounded by lots of shopping malls and restaurants. Also it is cheap, comparable to some local mass Chinese hotel chains. But, but this is a cheap place -- old elevator, very... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
