Excellent location. Hotel is located right on Century Square in city centre. Easy walk to Nanjing pedestrian street shops & 10 min walk to The Bund. Hotel is very secure. The room we had was quiet and adequate for a short stay. Bed had a very hard mattress - not particularly comfortable. Good access to wifi. Staff very friendly and... More

This hotel is located right across the street from the nanjing walking road. It is a 5 minute walk to peoples square subway station. This subway station is well connected to multiple lines. It was my first trip to Shanghai and this hotel was a great choice with regards to location. Apart from that it ia a decent 4 star... More

First we love the security of this hotel. You need to scan you room key when using elevator in order to go to the floor you stay. Staffs at business center are so friendly and helpful. Also hotel's location is very convenient. There is a very nice food court & restaurants close by on the second & third floor of... More

Excellent location right on Century Square in city centre. Close to Nanjing pedestrian street shops & 10 min walk to The Bund. Hotel entrance and lobby is very grand, rooms are a bit dated but very good with good size bed & large bathroom. Need to update their signage & room brochure as the lift (elevator) & brochure advertise happy... More

I was here last February 2015 with my family. We got the suite which was quite big. It had a separate living room with TV. Had a nice view as well. Should haved gotten a regular room instead as it was more than enough for me, my wife and our little kid. The hotel is located near the shopping distinct... More

The staff were nice and helpful and the room was lovely. The suite comprised of two rooms the main bedroom with bath and a separate sitting room with a sofa minibar and its own TV. Having paid a very reasonable rate for the room I definitely wasn't expecting such luxury!! The hotel room overlooked the very popular Nanjing Road area

It's located near the Bund and Nanjing pedestrian road with a lot of shops, restaurants and fast foods. Food variety specially breakfast is quite limited. The front desk people are not helpful enough. Rooms are clean and spacious.

I stayed for two nights. Its located on Nanjing Rd. Very very touristy. Be Careful of the street vendors that offer you anything from fake Rolexes to massages. The day staff spoke decent english but the night spoke almost none. The hotel is a little old and need to be renovated. Ive been to Shanghai a couple of times and... More

This 5 star hotel (stars in china don't seem to compare to star rating elsewhere!) is in a good location with plenty of shops and restaurants and pedestrian area nearby. The hotel is not new, but kept in decent condition. The rooms and lobby are reasonably nice, and they have a usable (15m) swimming pool (though rather shallow on one),... More

Stayed in the HJ in the bund last week and found the staff very helpful but none have really good english. Best to get the hotel staff to call you a taxi as they seem to be able to get the best ones. Hotel needs a cash injection but it is not dirty or tardy. Great location, quiet rooms and... More
