The hotel is well located and right next to MTR station. Although the decor is a bit old fashion, but well maintained. But one thing I need to compliant about is the hotel entrance filled with escort agents. They will follow you whenever you go, and whatever you said, and put a card full of naked women about two inches... More

There are some great things about the hotel: the location, right next to East Nanjing metro station so you never need a cab, plenty of dining and shopping options nearby, walking distance to the Bund. I chose an upper-level suite so I had access to the club lounge on the top floor. This was nice for wine and appetizers in... More

I stayed in a standard room and there ample space, a large shower etc. The hotel is very functional, the breakfast options seemed to go on... More

Excellent room and shower facilities. Quiet, very clean, very helpful staff, great location, secure for a woman on her own. One hiccup is that not all staff are good in English, and you can get by unless it is something specific. I, for example, ordered "French Toast" for breakfast, off the menu, and was provided with three skinny pieces of... More
