This hotel is located just in front of Nanjing Street and within 5 to 10 mins walk to a street full of restaurant selling Muslim food. Really fantastic! Check in was fast and hassle free. Key card control elevator. Standard size room with tea coffee making facilities. The coffee sucks though but there's a Starbucks at the lobby of the... More

We have twice stayed here and been happy each time. After an initial confusion was sorted as I arrived a day before my husband & the booking agent had failed to explain this and my credit card was not the one first used, our stay was happy and comfortable. Not 5 star but a competent and well priced 4 star... More

Whether on business or vacation, the highlight that the hotel offers is the location compared to the price it charges. It's well worth it. The Bund is in walkable distance, as well as People's Square and Huai Hai Rd. From popular to select shopping, as well as many important tourist attractions and museums are close. Add comfortable and clean rooms,... More

The location is very strategic. Just opposite to the Nanjing road where you can see amazing scenery from the hotel window every night. The meals in the restaurant are also fabulous and features many local delicacies.

The hotel is advertised as a five star hotel. Chinese five star but definitely not on international standards and thats one of the reasons why the hotel gets a "poor" rating. Its an average four star hotel, in my opinion. Let's start with the positives. The location is great, near the Bund and Nanjing Street for shopping. The room we... More

Great location for The Bund, Nanjing Road, Century Square. As in 10-15 minute stroll to The Bund, a couple of minutes to CenturySquare and Nanjing Road shopping. Big, smart, busy hotel. Plenty of international travellers. I'd be very happy to stay here again, and almost certainly will if I'm back in Shanghai, as I have no reason to look elsewhere.... More

Great location and professional service expected from this hotel. Suites are beautifully presented with comfortable beds making this for a great nights sleep. Suits a larger groups very well with easy access to all main attractions.would highly suggest this hotel for any first time visit to Shanghai.

GOOD 1.Location if you like downtown/shopping areas. 2,big rooms/big bath 3.good wifi/staff is helpful. 4.near to main city attractions/best bars/clubs. BAD 1.too many sex workers around hotel at night (typical in that area i guess). 2.breakfast buffet is so so nothing great. 3.hotel might consider refurbishing floor carpets in galley. overall one of the good options in downtown.
