I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I did not like the standard room which I booked online so I requested to upgrade when I was checking-in. The staff gave me a room on the 21st floor which was recently renovated with everything brand new. The WIFI worked all the time and the speed was descent. Get the upgraded rooms... More

Our group stayed in 8 rooms for several days. The location is good, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was wonderful. The WiFi was weak in the rooms, but strong in the lobby.

Pro's: Stayed on the 17th floor and the rooms where clean and has plenty of storage. Decent bed. Friendly service. Our room had a great view looking straight towards the Oriental Pearl Tower. Room was cleaned... More

I stayed there for 6 days in June 2011. It was ordered by our Chinese factory and therefore no one really understood what my problem was. The Hotel Stuff made an upgrade to the 20th floor with stunning view for the NEW city (when there is no fog – and most of the time there is fog) The location is... More

Pretty standard room in pretty standard area of Shanghai. Most fun feature of the hotel was the see-through bathrooms.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel during our biz trip in Feb '08 just before Chinese New Year. The staff were helpful but had to speak in their language. Toiletories refilled everyday with 2 bottles of distill water. There is a street of stalls just behind the hotel.

Our Travel Agent booked this hotel for us, as our preferred hotel was booked out. This is not a good hotel for international tourists. It is for Business Travellers only, mainly Chinese. Pros - Modern hotel, nice rooms, view towards the Bund Cons - The name claims it is "International", but it isn't, as reception & concierge staff only know... More

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
