Stayed here for 3 nights, my 5th/6th stay over the last 5 years. Under new ownership and you can certainly tell... The staff are relatively unengaging and not particularly friendly. Food quality has slipped too, I was always able to rely on the decent quality breakfast here but the staff are very slow, dont offer coffee or tea refils unless... More

The hotel is quite central...5 to 10 minutes walk from a nice area where the subway station is (West Nanjing Road station). It's 2 stations from Xintiandi and about 20 minutes from the Bund by metro. The hotel is a little weird as it is also called "Acme". They are selling rooms for residential condos (serivced apartments). There is no... More

There is nothing what I can really complaint about except the breakfast, which is totally pathetic and pretty bad( thankfully there is a Starbucks around the corner). The rooms are huge, bathrooms are small, beds are kingsize and nice, but somehow there is nothing to really brag about and the whole atmosphere wasn t very inviting. Location is good and... More

The location of the hotel is great, rooms are ok but that is basically the good thing about it. But the AC in the room cannot be adjusted. You can either chose to sleep in a fridge or turn it off. Hygiene is not very good, found a big bunch of hair in one of the towels. When I reported... More

HoJo? You sure? Well, don't let its name gives you the halo effect of that kind of impression. Go in, check in, and stay. Then only you will realise, the halo will have to go. The room were very well designed and decorated. Very good bed and comfortable. Room service is great. Not going to comment on the food as... More

Stayed here in Shanghai for business/leisure visit. The hotel itself was very clean and luxurious. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable regarding the local area. Room temperatures could be more easily controllable. The thermostat in the room did not appear to work properly. Great vertical iron though! Breakfast was great and offered both traditional Chinese and American options. The spa up... More

This hotel made me realize how powerful old perceptions can be. I was expecting a budget hotel and was pleasantly surprised. Nice location for my work, quiet, solid breakfast and overall much more snazy than I expected.
