This hotel has huge rooms and is very reasonably priced. The room had a beautiful bathroom of marble and not that we needed it in the hot and humid temperature outside but the toilet seat was heated The location is also great with easy walking to Nanjing Road for shopping and the Bund. Front of house staff very helpful

Central, in the Bund, a couple of hundred meters north of e Nanjing road. Staff friendly, room fairly nice. Higher level rooms might have really nice views, I stayed at 13th floor, which was noisewise a bit too close to the street. Internet: Reasonable I-net connection - you borrow some gear at the front desk. Cleaning: Could have been cleaner... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The located is ok. It is within walking distance to the Bund. The rooms were okay. The bed was a bit hard for my liking. The front desk staff were efficient, but not too friendly. The breakfast buffet was ok.

We arrived in the hotel around 11 am last Sunday and left our baggage in the 'so called concierge' as check in is still at 1 PM. there was only 1 trainee staff out in the lobby meanwhile she was handling quite a lot of people checking...

I stayed in this hotel a couple of months ago. Well, the location is very strategic. Its a walking distance to The Bund, East Nanjing Road Metro Station and East Najing Road. Most of the staff has a conversational level of English, so it was not that difficult. Well, the downside of this hotel, is when i made the bookings,... More

What I liked best about this hotel was how easy it was to get to East Nanjing Road and the Metro (about ten minutes - straight down Shandong North Road. When you see the Apple store you are there, Metro is under a mall across the street.) From the East Nanjing Road Metro you could easily get around the city.... More

Very few affordable hotels in Shanghai offer you a view of the skyline and it is really worth a try. Location is just a few minutes walk from E Nanjing Rd station, which is the closest station to the Bund. Good food are all lined along Ningbo Rd which is on the way to E Nanjing Rd. The night view...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in one of the superior rooms. The carpet was badly stained, the bed hard, bitten by random bugs, bathroom was spacious although the shower floor was dirty. Overall, the room was in need of a freshen up! Internet: We got a WiFi dongle from reception and it worked well. Location: Average. It... More

Not quite what the name implies about the location as it is at least 10 minutes walk to the bund. Older hotel with just size rooms. Do not ask for a bottle opener as you will get a short shift very quickly and told it will be sent up. Still waiting!!

Our stay was uneventful besides unfriendly and unhelpful staff and a crowded breakfast room. However, at check out we were confronted with a multitude of invented extra costs including mini-bar items, telephone costs and even costs for a towel, which according to hotel staff became too dirty by our use and we therefore had to pay for it. As we... More
