We stayed here for four nights. The hotel is well appointed and comfortable and most of the staff were helpful and welcoming. However, the staff behind reception, including those to do with accounts and money exchange were abrupt and unfriendly on the whole. A lesson in manners would not go amiss with most of them. For example, I presented some... More

We loved the excitement of Shanghai with its modern buildings contrasted with the classical ones. The hotel was out of the city centre so unless you ate in the hotel, which we chose not to do, the only choice was very basic restaurants who spoke little English. We found this fun, but it's not for everyone. Our room was on... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of 23 day tour of China. Had a room on 21st floor which was clean and comfortable with a spacious bathroom. Good selection of international and asian food for breakfast. Staff were helpful and the hotel was not busy.

We stayed here as part of our tour of China. Nice room and a good buffet breakfast. Would have used the pool if we had time! Easy to use free wifi in bedroom. Pity we had quite a lot of rain while in Shanghai.

We had booked an executive room and it certainly was a lot bigger and nicer than we expected. There was a foyer with the closets, a living room with a big sofa and a nice desk as well as a good sized tv, a king sized bed and nightstands partially separated from the living room and a marble bathroom bigger...

We stayed at this Hotel as part of a 13 day tour of China. It was the last hotel of our trip. We were not really impressed with this hotel. I spoke to the manager after a problem with them charging my credit card 3 times in the bar/cafe area for the same meal. He was not at all helpful,... More

Stayed there for business, room is clean and with this room rate, it's fair deal. Breakfast is average, do have western food, but Chinese taste. Location is not convenient if you wanna go for sightseeing. Nevertheless taxi fare is low in Shanghai. Entered the breakfast room, but surprised being told my room rate does not cover breakfast, paid RMB 120... More

We stayed here as part of a China tour. Our room, and bathroom was nice. Both the room and bathroom were off a good size and very clean. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The public areas are modern and decorated to a good standard. The location was also good as it was only a 10-15 minute walk to the bund.
