Company had booked this hotel for our two weeks in Shanghai. The hotel is extremely far from the Pudong airport, which i believe could be said for most of the hotels in Shanghai. The experience was bad partly due to ongoing construction on the street in front. The construction would go on till late at night. It was also not... More

+the hotel amenities are nice and well-kept. +there is one boy from concierge, who is very good. +subway station nearby. however, receptionists are very rude, and i was double charged for the same room. When I had spent arguing with them for 1 hour, they reconsidered and returned back my money. Instead of apologizing, the front office manager was arrogant.... More

Stayed here twice within the span of 2 weeks. The only issue I faced to start with was its distance from Airport (Pudong). Its really very far and if you are taking taxi during day time then expect not less then 200 RMB and 250 RMB at night. Although with 3 interchanges you can get to the Metro Station Guilin... More

However the hotel Is starting to look a little tired, but is clean and well managed. I found it to be reasonably priced. The breakfast was very good, but... More

And this is very bad for travellers checking in late in the evening. Breakfast room is open only until 9.30am. So if are not an ealry morning person, you will... More

This Hotel is a typical Chinese style Hotel. Large rooms, fully equiped, free Wlan, mainly Chinese guests. Room is acceptable clean, breakfast good. Location also not too bad - not too far from Hongqiao Airport, not too far from City center. Subwat Station is just around the corner, therfore all places in Shanghai conveniently to reach.

Great Hotel. The rooms are very nice and functional. Some nice amenities with the room including complimentary snacks and fruit. Free WIFI available in the rooms (you have to ask for a router though) and the breakfast buffet was extraordinary! Would definitely stay there again. The only caveat is that the hotel is far from the downtown area but a... More

I should really keep this hotel a a secret, but they offer excellent rooms, nice service at a good price. The location may not be the best, but there is everything within walking distance. Staff is very friendly and rooms are nice and clean.

4 star standard. Quiet room and comfortable bed. Really the place to stay for business in the West side of Shanghai. Plenty small restaurants around at 30/50 RMB but also more high end ones. Staff at the Babylon cafe very friendly. 30 minutes by metro to the Bund.

Decent business hotel. Got upgraded to a suite since they ran out of single rooms. Wasn't gonna complaint. Suite is nice, spacious, beds are comfortable. Though no wireless in the room, the cable internet connection was sufficient. Generally surrounding area was bare / basic as not a tourist location. Babylon Cafe for breakfast had a nice spread, Chaopinji Chinese restaurant... More
