Honestly this was the worst of all the hotels I stayed in during my trip to China. Dirty carpets, the bathroom was compelety see thru, and we had to beg for TP. Really was an ugly stay and left after one nite. Would not recommend this hotel specially if with family

Little hard to locate hotel as it is actually in an alley, but once located, check in was smooth and we were escorted to our rooms. When we arrived at our rooms, one had a glass door on the bathroom with no privacy afforded. This room was occupied by 2 men and not appropriate at all. Ours looked a lot... More

Amazing location: just a short walk to the Bund (perfect for nightlife, all good clubs are in walking distance) and to the next subway station/shopping street East Nanjing Road. You can even walk to the famous tourist attraction Yuyuan garden in 20-25 minutes if you like to walk. There are 2 small supermarkets right in front of the hotel to... More

The room safe was not bolted down and could easily be carried from the room. Mosquitoes were always in room. Maybe from the air conditioning outlet. The shower floor leaked into the main bathroom area leaving pools of water. In-room wifi was intermittent. It seems China has no national standards on hotel rooms. The result is a mish mash where...

It's near the Bund and there's 2 convenience store in front. That's what I like about the hotel. What I don't like: the carpet in the room was dirty. The room is ordinary. The first night there was no aircon just air coming out. The second day the wifi in the whole hotel was off until the morning. There's breakfast... More

This hotel has a good location close to the Bund, close to Nanjing road and not far from subway. Badly spoken english at reception but friendly and helpful. I think rooms and public areas should be more clean for sure.

Only a short walk to the Bund and some busy shopping streets. The staff were also very freindly and helpful, but when the wheels of your suit case make a sticky sound when going down the corriodor it doesn't bode well. The carpet in my room was disgustingly filthy, and the general feel of it gave the impression not much... More

The hotel is very well priced and great value for money. The rooms are great size and clean. The breakfast is okay but no great but great for a china standard, Very close to the bund which is a real plus. I would stay here again.

This hotel has a good location close to the Bund, close to Nanjing road, and is about a 10 min walk from the East Nanjing subway stop. The lobby looks quite nice and fancy. We spent a bit more money and booked a business double room, but it was nowhere as nice as the lobby. Overall it was ok, but... More
