I stayed here a little over a year ago and returned last week when passing through Shanghai. Must say that the place has gotten a bit run down, wallpaper was peeling and the hallways were dirty. It was still a good value. Some people have been put off by the advertising cards for sexual services that are slipped under the... More

In all fairness, this hotel is quite great value for money considering that it is 3 mins walk to Xinzha station, and it's one stop to People Square from there. There is really nothing much around the immediate vicinity but if you walk 30 mins you will get to Nanjing Road. The room - it had a modern look which... More

Negatives: - Rooms could have been cleaner. Few spots on the carpets and tiles. - Staff was helpful most of the time. On one instance they asked my 10Rmb service for speaking to someone on the phone for me, as they were talking in Mandarin and I only understood English. This was extremely shocking and unprofessional. -Views aren't the greatest.... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of the China Highlights tour package. It's located on a quiet back street. The room had an usual feature. The bathroom shower had a glass wall that can be viewed in from the bed room. For privacy, there was a blind you can access from the bed room side of the wall. Another... More

This hotel is really really nice! Its fairly new and it has all the modern amenities of any western style hotel. We had a room with 2 twin beds which were more like double. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was huge with a fantastic glass shower and giant sunflower shower head. After a long day... More

We stayed a week at this hotel and every night we had a handful of cards advertising prostitutes put under our door. The telephone had strange calls in the night and there were odd sounds in adjacent rooms. We complained about this to the hotel staff who showed no interest and did nothing. The towel shelf in the shower room... More

After needing a room shift due to a bad smell in the first, we generally enjoyed our stay at this well located hotel. Just off Xinzha road (look out for the sign just over bridge that diverts you to the hotel in a side street). Overlooks a tributary of the Huangpo river which can be viewed from one side of... More

This is an excellent small business hotel located near a tributary of the Huangpo River (can see it from my window) and a 15 minute walk to People's Square and Nanjing Road (the West end of it.) Thankfully, no tour bus groups were here, and the guests I saw were mostly Chinese. Excellent buffet breakfast. I was particularly impressed by... More

Great location to down town but far from the bund (30 mins, no metro stop near bund). The bed was very comfortable but the room, despite the heat blowing, was cold (bad insulation). The room was large, had a nice desk/office area (separate from the bedroom), the room also came with some nice coffee/teas. The bathroom, however, left much to... More
