Good hotel, nice and helpful staff, and they do speak English which is valuable and important in China. Clean rooms, decent size, good internet/wife (you need to pay for it). Only downside is no breakfast included. In overall I would recommend it.

I have been staying in this hotel for 7 years, for maybe 3 trips per year, and it needs a few tweaks. Compared to top hotels the staff on reception are pretty poor, and generally quite rude. Elsewhere in the hotel however, the staff are pretty good and attentive, particularly in the lobby bar. Prices are reasonable, general Shanghai prices... More

I have been here more than 3 times. Good hotel. Nice location. Rooms are clean. Beautiful view if you are going to get a room on higher floors. Be aware of many massage girls sneaking to the lobby at night.

Do not stay in this hotel more than one day. It´s not cheap, it´s far away of everywhere in Shanghai, but OK for HongQiao airport and HongQiao train station. One night is OK, but it´s really noisy during the day time, as there is a big road right in front of it. The bathroom in the rooms is so small... More

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago and remember it didn't overly impress or disappoint me. That still holds true. The rooms show aging, especially the bathrooms. The carpet in my room also seemed due for replacement. All staff encounters were reasonably pleasant. I didn't try any of the restaurants or bars so cannot comment on them. The... More
