We got suckered into the 9th floor as it was the highest floor available which we wanted for the view over the Bund, however the reality of the uncomfortable beds only struck at bedtime which was an unfortunate experience which we got the hotel to remedy in the morning by moving us to the 8th floor. For views of the... More

This hotel looks better on the Internet than in reality. The rooms themselves are ok but the bathrooms are very much in need of an update. Surprisingly language was a real issue and whilst we didn't expect great English, communicating with staff was very difficult. Wifi only available in lobby and not great. Sat in bar area as at least... More

The hotel has a great location. I had a great view onto the skyscrapers to the Pudong side. The hotel room was more or less clean. Wifi was only in the lobby available! The saddest thing on this hotel is the service/friendliness of the hotel employee. All persons at the reception where very unfriendly, not helpful and had a lack... More

for a trip of 3 or 4 days is a good option. However there is no wifi in the rooms and the front desk staff services are very poor. The rooms are big enough, but they don't clean them well. i would rather go to another hotel in the area even paying a little bit more.

We stayed 1 night in April 2015. Reception was pleasant and quick. The room however felt very dated with decor looking decidedly out of fashion with mismatching fittings and old faded fabrics. It was clean and is well located but the lack of wifi was too much to bear. We didn't sample any food here. Personally I would search for... More

I stayed at this hotel for six incredibly uncomfortable nights. The hotel is has-been luxury property in desperate need of a complete makeover. The property is old and poorly maintained. Traveling on a budget, I opted for one of their more affordable rooms--a big mistake! The room was windowless, however, nonetheless, there were tons of flying bugs in the room... More

I am staying in room 407 of this hotel while writing the review. I have booked an executive suite which is the second most expensive room category. I asked for the highest floor of this 10+ floors building. The hotel describes itself on booking.com: "Spacious suite features internet access, fax machine and panoramic views of the Huangpu River." Price around... More

Generally happy with the hotel, our room, executive suit on top floor was large, clean with what has to be one of the best views of Po Dong and the Bund. Didn't like the 1970's wallpaper or waterbed and the bathroom was a little grubby! Hotel Staff have difficulty communicating to customers, when we arrived and presented our booking we... More

What better location than just off the Bund, with a view of Pudong's futuristic buildings on the left hand side, and the nineteenth century imposing buildings of the Bund on the right! A great buffet breakfast with that kind of view makes the day start off in the best of moods and energised for the whole day! Walking distance from... More

Where to start? Management at this hotel are asleep at the wheel. Forget about continuous improvement they seem to specialise in take it or leave it. The staff are poorly trained, with little English and poor attitudes. The check-in staff were the worse, take it or leave it, with attitude. I think they preferred that you leave. The Spa on...
