We booked a "4-star" room for an admittedly low rate. When we arrived at the front desk, we were greeted by a formal clerk in fluent English who told us the use of wifi would cost us an extra 60RMB per day. We decided to at least stay for 1 night (we had reserved for 4 nights). But when we... More

This is a cheap and cheerful hotel not too far from the tourist mecca of Xin Tian Di in Shanghai. Its unpretentious and extremely good value. Rooms clean, comfortable but a bit on the small side. Its not a 5-star but it doesn't pretend to be and instead of paying a fortune at a higher star hotel this is an... More

It's not a luxury hotel. Bear that in Mind. However, after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and couple of other sites - I had some serious doubts about keeping my booking here. I still went, and I guess I was pleasantly surprised because I went in expecting the worst? It's a nice clean check in area - VERY pleasant and... More

With rising costs of hotels in Shanghai, the City Hotel Shanghai brings value for money. Well-located at close to Nanjing Road, it is pleasant to walk around there in the evenings. The rooms are good and food is delicious, albeit rather expensive. The staff speak English and cleanliness is good.

I booked this hotel because check online and it looked alright. I was just planning to stay 3 nights. The location is great but my room is old and the carpet is very dirty and in the corner it has huge pee stains. It s quite gross. The room is connected by a locked door to the room next door... More

Excellent location. Just next to yan'an road. A very good business hotel. They got my tickets done, courier, messages, luggage storage, vault service. And a nice coffee shop too. Will recommend it to anybody travelling on business and staying in this area

City hotel was an adequate space that served my needs for the one night that I stayed there. Centrally located, the hotel is within walking distance to the subway, making getting around the city easy and convenient. My friends and I arrived early after an overnight train from Beijing so were unable to check in. The hotel concierge kindly let... More

This is my first time at this hotel and it is a real disappointment! The minute you walked thru to the lobby, there is a smell like sewer backup! The check in process was slow - all manual and they went thru our passports like a fine tooth comb. The rooms were small and there was a smell in the... More

The hotel overall is quite old, and lobby is quite small. It is my second time booking this hotel. Although I booked from online travel agency but they did not have my record. They charge the internet fee which is weird for a four star hotel and also the gym. From last time it, the room was okay. This time... More
