The rooms are not very clean and quite old. Unfortunately, the bathroom has a big window and the roller blind doesn't help a lot. They offer free WIFI which worked well. The breakfast is good with a big choice of Chinese food.

I have stayed luckily just one night in this hotel, which is about 30 min drive from Hongqiao and 60 min from Pudong airport away. You can reach the most things like Bund or inner city within 15 minutes drive and the cab cost is about 20 RMB for each destination, what is quite cheap. The surrounding there is very... More

I liked other New century hotels elsewhere in the past as well as the central location, thinking this will be a good choice. Regret it the moment my taxi stopped at the entrance. Where shall I start? Good points are location, location, and location. This location is also a disadvantage. What a neighbourhood, it feels like a bombing site (the... More

Most rooms are smoking rooms. The neighborhood isn't the greatest but not un-safe. Actually a fairly central location with short and cheap taxi rides to everywhere in the city. If you do not speak mandarin the hotel can not communicate with you for any service. Breakfast buffet is not so great but dinner is better. Room trim had mold and... More

We have just returned from the hayes & jarvis 'treasures of china' tour. We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and found it to be a very comfortable hotel, clean and with excellent customer service. The location initially concerned us upon arrival because the surrounding Streets have a 'shanty town' feel to them. However, we quickly realised that this... More

The plus points, all of the staff whilst their English was limited were helpful and tried their hardest. Nothing was a problem for them. Just next to the hotel was a small grocery store where you could purchase reasonable priced drinks and snacks for your room or the following days excursions. Taxis in Shanghai are very cheap, you can travel... More

Decent hotel. Nice, big rooms. Good breakfast. Some downsides through. The rooms are not completely soundproof and there were some disturbances due to road work going on downstairs (I was on the 19th floor). The air conditioning in my room did not work properly throughout my stay despite 3 complaints (1 on each day). I don't know if anyone actually... More
