Good points: - Good location - Friendly staff - Breakfast is ok - It's clean Bad points: - WiFi is NOT free - The room looks a bit shabby and old Ok, for a short trip, but definitely not the best place.

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

Friendly, keen & biddable staff, but the overall experience is let down by the following: Wi-fi that you have to pay for separately, but which keeps on logging you off & is as slow as a tortoise moving backwards. As a result it was virtually impossible to send emails, A very tired & dated feel to the hotel throughout, Average... More

I spent 5 nights early April 2013 in this old hotel. It was my fifth time here and I never noticed a change while the hotel was aging. Breakfast is in the middle range of quality and quantity, room are not so confortable and clean for westerne standards. The only positive thing is the location in the centre. Never come... More

We wanted to stay the final night of our business trip is a good 4 star hotel in Shanghai close to our supplier. The price of the city hotel was good and the pictures of the room and facilities on booking.com looked great! This was not the case on arrival, the room and bath room was dated, small and there...
