Small room. Comfy bed with good sleeps. Cleanliness excellent except for the shower floor which little black. Doesn't looks like a hotel at first glance- the entrance looks more like a motel. However, the lobby (level 2) looks classics decent. Had comfy 4 nights. Will be one of the choice again if I back to shanghai.

I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights, and it did exactly what we wanted it to. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and had all the amenities you would need.

I s very surprised with the hotel. Large rooms with all the amenities you need. Clean space, with large washroom, sitting area, desk and comfortable beds. Hotel lobby is very smoky but that is par for the course in Sanghai. Very pleased with the room and the service.

We love the location : around the corner from the metro and a big shopping area, as well as being right in front of the People's square and the Concert Hall. It was our third hotel on that tour and it was the softest, most comfortable bed with a wonderful welcoming room. I hope it's our choice for every visit.

My 3rd time in this hotel. Great location and interior. This stay however, the room has an absolutely terrible sewage smell. Opening the window only made it worse. Huge let down! Also the internet is quite spotty. If the smell is removed tomorrow, would be back in a heartbeat!
