The rooms themselves, although maybe tired in decor, aren't bad. The rooms are big, the bed comfy, the bathroom satisfactory and Chinese TV is amusing to say the least. Getting to them, and using the hotel, is a nightmare. I know its a visitors responsibility to learn the language but not a word of English was spoken at the hotel.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and found the hotel to be spotlessly clean, with lovely rooms and en-suites. We were quite high up which gave a fantastic view of Shanghai, but had the added advantage of being quite a way from the road with the relentless honking and beeping of horns, so we slept very well. There was a... More

I liked this place, and stayed there 5 times. Good staff, money exchange available at any time, nice restaurant ( dollar shop) on the 20th floor. They are close to the railway station and I always use it when leaving Shanghai by train. I could compare this hotel with other in the neighborhood and this one is much better

We stayed in this hotel with my friends (6 persons). We booked quite expensive rooms. After spending a couple of hours in a room we began to freeze. We tried to switch on air-conditioning for heating. Nothing happened. We contacted the front desk and asked for heaters. They didn't have heaters and told us that the air conditioner will not...

This is the filthiest, stinkiest hotel I have ever stayed in. I was forced to stay two nights because of the group I was with. They were the most miserable nights I have ever had in a hotel. The place is incredibly dirty, disgusting, and it reeks of urine and smoke. Please don't waste your money and a good night's... More

We were booked into this hotel by our travel / tour company out of Canada. We had requested a triple room as it was my husband, adult daughter and I that were travelling on a budget. We had also stipulated nothing more expensive than a three star hotel. When we were shown our room, it contained two single beds but... More

I last stayed at this hotel in late 2007, so I was interested to visit again in September 2009. The hotel is quite cheap, its rooms clean and reasonably comfortable and the hotel is well located. However, having now travelled further in China, I can't in all honesty recommend it to travellers. Its a bit tired looking inside, although the... More
