I have literally travelled the world and this is the best hotel I have ever stayed it. The location was perfect- very central (closest metro station is 5 minutes walk away). It was spotlessly clean and re-cleaned every day to a high standard. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room was gorgeous, it had so many beautiful features... More

We recently stayed here for three nights. The room was excellent, spacious, very clean, modern with a great bathroom. Breakfast selection was vast and the bar area was spacious with great service. Staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel is well located with a 15 minute walk to the Bund and shopping.

We spent 5 nights here in May and overall it was a great experience. It's located right on Nanjing Road which is a bustling pedestrian shopping street. We had booked online and were discussing on our 12 hr flight from North America that we would ask for a higher floor with a nice view and were pleased to find out... More

Love the location. Easy access (500-700m) to almost all metro lines (there are easily 14 metro lines in Shanghai). You can take Line 2 from Pudong airport (1.5hr journey, 8RMB) if you don't mind lugging your luggage 500 m to get to the hotel. Room is spacious and modern and breakfast spread is quite impressive. The lobby reeks of cigarette... More

We choose this hotel because we needed 3 single beds in 1 room. One parent and 2 adolescents just a weekend trip to Shanghai. The provided it very well, the roll-away-bed fitted in nicely and was a very good sleepable bed. No complaints or whatsoever about this hotel. Bathroom was great, good shower, even a separate bathtub and enough space... More

Located one street away from the shopping strip of Jiujang Road. Excellent location for shopping, walking to the Bund and also access to the Metro rail. A little dated in appearance, however our room was excellent. Great size, very modern with a big luxurious bathroom. All amenities you could possibly want are supplied. Air-conditioned but also had windows that opened.... More

We stayed for 3 nights prior to joining a conference in Pudong / Century Park area. This hotel is very well located - about 200m to nearest metro station, or a bit further to the man People's Square station. We taxied from the airport, approximately 50min. It's cheaper by metro (depending if you take that MagLev), but the metro does... More

Fantastic location for Nanjing Road shopping and 15 minute walk to Bund. Room was spacious and bed was huge, wider than it was long and amazing overhead shower. Complimentary bottles of water in room daily was appreciated.

Great business hotel and location is excellent just off Nanjing Road which is a shopping belt. Beware of touts though. Room is surprisingly comfortable and modern for a local hotel though the breakfast i feel is lacking. Lobby looks somewhat dated and mediocre and sparse. For a better experience, perhaps you can try the classier sister hotel - The Grand... More

Stayed for 3 nights on our first visit to Shanghai, in which we wanted to see the main city sights and relax. The hotel location is very good in terms of being walking distance to The Bund for skyline views, People's Square/Park, and is one street parallel to the Walking Street, so there is a lot available within a short...
