We took 2 rooms for 6 nights, arriving at 2.00am we booked the rooms for the day before so that they would be ready and available for our immediate use on arrival. Our stay has been ok, but not amazing. The internet is too sketchy to make a Skype phone call on, it only works in the bathroom and next... More

I'm writing this opinion while I'm laying on the bed of room 2207, both (bed and room) spacious and cozy. Bedroom and living room are neither huge nor small (but they have one TV each!), but more than enough for a tourist trip, what it means no much time on the room. Bathroom has tube and shower. We arrived late,... More

My business partner have chosen the hotel for affordable price and first impression was not great, too much heavy gold colored stuff everywhere and queue to check in. When I opened the room, some positive feeling came back, as space inside was big, clean and with nice bed. Everything worked properly except internet connection. Nothing to complain about sleep quality,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Centrally Situated and overlooking the Shopping Precinct. Rooms were large and very clean. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and had a good understanding of the English Language. Restaurant was very good with excellent choice of foods. Only downside was, the indoor driving range was broken. Sept`13 RMB 630 per night I purposely stayed high... More

I was here for two nights (unfortunately), and my stay at this hotel couldn't have been better. First, I need to give a shoutout to Chris (at least that's the name I was given at the front desk) who checked us in and took care of us. He was able to upgrade our rooms and was able to put us... More

Couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Just off Nanjing road, 1/2 block to No 2 metro. Great service, large room -- super quiet (couldn't hear any noise from hallway, other rooms or streets below). Will definitely stay there again and would have no hesitation to recommend to others.

I was there for about 5 days. The lobby is grand, the room luxurious and the food was great. Very good service. The location was great for touring. The bed was very comfortable. I felt that they gave you a lot of value for the money.

I am a huge Starwood property fan, but the price and the value here are incomparable. A very western atmosphere and cordial staff made this my second visit, in the same room a deal maker for future visits to Shanghai. Used an online service to book the room from the plane and was met with welcome by name at the... More

Our first impression of our first room 1407 - a corner suite with 3 huge windows was WOW what a fabulous room! However once we had settled in and started to unwind after the ten hour flight from London we found that it was simply impossible to ignore the constant noise of the horns from the cars, buses and lorries...

As others have said, this is a very nice hotel. It is as 'central' as it's name suggests. We had a very nice executive room and had the evening buffet, which was great ( and also inexpensive). The staff were all excellent.
