Stayed here 1 week on business. Great location, best thing is everything from bund to fake showrooms selling NIKE are accessible by foot. Though the area is a pretty touristy with overwhelming touts, the hotel is perfectly located.

Great location, took us 45mims from the airport, easy access to key attractions, nice rooms, buffet breakfast was ok with a good balance of East and west options. Would stay again. Better hotels around but this is a good balance of location, quality and value for money

This is a nice clean hotel right in the shopping district. Good cooperative & friendly staff Just need to be careful of people offering massages just as you come out of the hotel. Too much offers for ladies for sex and massage.

We loved our stay here. Close to the walking street and about a 15 minute walk to the Bund. Our room overlooked the street and at night the lights were lovely. The room was big and the bathroom had lots of extras. The buffet breakfast was plentiful good free wifi.
