our first experience of Chinese hotels and our room had a definite whiff of cigarettes, even though it was a non-smoking room, plus something else, less definable but not pleasant. However once the air-con was at the desired level and we'd got more-or-less settled in the smells became less apparent. It was also possible to open the window a small... More

Generally ok. Like the location and hence had 2 extensions. But I had bad experiences with their service. Was locked out from my rooms during the evening for my 1st extension even though reception had processed my request. 2nd extension (back from other city), one of the assigned room was apparently used by their other customer (with welcome food &...

Peak hours and too many traffic, especially those (electric cycles) motorcycles travelling at high speed very recklessly along those roads within the hotel surroundings, guests be extra careful when crossing roads, esp. in the evening under the dim traffic lightings.

This was the first hotel that we stayed at when we arrived in China. Shanghai was the first stop on our 16 day Gate 1 tour. The hotel lobby was large and lovely. The majority of the staff were non -English speaking, even so, they could always find a staff member to help you who spoke and understood English. Once... More

This hotel is in a very good location, close to two food marts, many small restaurants, and has pretty easy access to the subway. The rooms are very clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. I stayed here four nights and really enjoyed it. It seems busy when you walk about, but it's really not that bad. Just leave the... More

Stayed here for just a night in the executive floor. All worked pretty well. Didn't have time due to business to explore the facilities. Had lunch in the dining room which was pretty average and staff not very helpful.

Located in the French Concession. Many quaint little shops nearby make for nice strolls and interesting dining. Full service wifi and and great breakfasts make this a nice location for a stay in Shanghai.

We stayed here through our tourGate 1. This hotel was the one that was lower quality among the 3 we used in China. Staff is too busy. The do not exchange money after 1000pm until 700 am. Rooms are small and uncomfortable. Breakfast was yucky. I was surprise a company such as Gate 1 used this hotel.

After reading so many negative comments about this hotel on Trip Advisor I was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was during our stay. My husband and I thought the rooms were quite lovely if not the largest we experienced during our tour of China. The bathroom was large and clean. The linens were new and bath sheets rather than...

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour. I would deem it about a 2 or possibly 3 star by U.S. standards. Of the three hotels we stayed at during the tour, this was the most run-down. Rooms were adequate. Everything is clean, but everything is also old. The faucet head in the bathtub shot off, spewing water... More
