The rooms were nice with English channels and other stuff. Don't recommend you to ask for help from the staff. I asked for a bag, they didn't even understand. Couldn't ask for any help for directions or traveling anywhere. When I had a problem all they did is talked together in Chinese and laughed at me. No manners at all.... More

Everything was spot on, world class and absolutely clean rooms at a decent price. Short distance to Walmart and KFC. Friendly stuff. Forex machine in the lobby. Breakfast was a little monotonous but edible and at least included cereal. They give you a hotel details card which you can give cab drivers to return you to hotel. Wifi functional and... More

Its a good hotel and the services are also excellent. Only thing that I think to be improved is to take care off restaurant menu. Hotel management should really take care of muslim guests and arrange for some halal food there in breakfast menu.

1) They put smokers on non-smoking floors. They smoked in hallways and elevators. Smokes came to my room underneath the door. Staff saw them and did nothing to remind them not to smoke in non-smoking areas. 2) The dining room is too small for the large number of tourists coming through the hotel. Each morning people were fighting for food,... More

Hotel staff was friendly and price was good this is why I gave 2 stars, otherwise I'd given 1 star. 1. Hotel is not clean at all, including rooms and breakfast area. 2. Breakfast is only attractive to Chinese people I guess, because I don't like to eat pork buns or rice in the morning. There wasn't any options. I... More

I stayed for a night on a business trip. Compared to other international hotel brands in Shanghai, this is an excellent value. It's reasonably located, about 45 minutes to Shanghai Hongqiao airport. I wil stay again.

This is a clean and fairly new hotel. We stayed as part of a large group and actually stayed on two separate occasions one week apart (so the hotel was organized by someone else). We arrived ahead of the main group and were quickly checked in (the ability of some of the front desk to speak and understand English varied,... More
