We stayed in this hotel for five nights and found it to be the perfect place to be based for visiting Shanghai. It is a short walk to People's Square, close to the Metro and close to good restaurants. The hotel however is poorly cleaned, poorly run and needs refurbishment but the price reflects the standard. A short stay would... More

We stayed for only one night pre-cruise. We were concerned by some of the previous reviews but found the hotel to be very good. We had no problems with cards under the door etc as previous reviewers had mentioned. Our room was spacious with a good view of the river. The room was clean with a comfortable queen bed. There...

I recommend this hotel for several reasons, very good price for the value, good location, clean room, nice staff at the front desk and also helpful with the luggage, queen beds, good air condition and hotel views.

This hotel is situated in a back lane and is a little hard to find. Do yourself a favour and get a copy of the directions in Chinese. The staff on the desk have limited English and to be honest I think they would rather not have to deal with non - Chinese speaking guests. The one shining light was... More

Booked a superior queen bed. The room is clean, modern and fairly spacious with a separate small area for the desk away from the bed. The bath room includes a bath tub outside the shower area. The bed is soft(!) unlike the typical Chinese hotel beds which are very hard. I really had good rest on the bed after 9... More

I booked this hotel for my pre and post cruise in Shanghai. On my 1st visit when checking in, I specifically heard the guy saying they are full and giving me a standard room. I kept insistently told him I booked a twin superior city view room but was ignored. Being tired from a early morning flight, I just accepted... More

So called 4 star hotel and it might live up to 3. Well received in the Reception, arriving quite late. Room was quite nice with all the expected facilities except minibar. TV with all the hundred of CCTV Chanel's and some English speaking channels. Found a free WiFi; not sure if it was hotel, but it was open. Breakfast was... More

What can I say for this hotel. It is drab, depressing and getting out the lift accidentally on the 1st floor left me with chills. It was like something from a horror story, dirty, dark, abandoned and spooky. Staff spoke no English, the room service promised was non existent, I spent 2 days sick in bed when my daughter attempted... More

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
