Very nice hotel...This was my first visit to Shanghai. My room was booked and my arrival time was also confirmed to the Hotel but when I reached at the Hotel, room was not available for me. They took 30 min to make my room ready. Balance everything perfect Nice food, good service nice ambiance.

I have stayed there several times during last few years and deterioration is visible. My recent room (especially bathroom) smelled bad (it may be because of the poor quality of local water...). And even my non-smoking room smelled like cigarettes. Other thing is most of the rooms do not have free wi-fi (it is available on the first floor).

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the last seven years and have to say I do like the place. I think value for money is good compared to the other players and you have to remember you are in Shanghai. For me the best bits are the nice clean comfy rooms and lovely beds. I sometimes work...

I have been waiting for 20 minutes at midnight to check in as the only front desk staff is a taking care a group of guests for their reservation problem.

As an Indian rarely do you find yourself helpless during travel to any part of the world. Considering that Indians are fluent in English, travel is not a difficult task. But not so in China. Not knowing Chinese can render you so immobile and helpless that buying a bottle of water is impossible. You need to be divinely blessed by... More

This was surprisingly a really nice hotel, especially for the cost. The room I had was on the 21st floor (non-smoking). It was a large room with a comfortable bed (king size) and desk. Japanese style toilets. There is a stocked small fridge in the room. Major disadvantage - there is no WIFI in the rooms. A wired connection is... More

The staff of the hotel were very english friendly and were very helpful, the room and bathroom were quite big but it was difficult to connect to the internet. The location is very convenient as it was in walking distance to the metro which connected to pudong airport.

The location was great, the rooms were massive, and the view was great as well from the room. I think we were on the 18th floor. Anyway, if you want a place to stay that is relatively convenient this would be the place.
