The only good thing about this place is the location. its a short 4 minute walk to NANJING Lu Market. That's it. Besides, the hotel apparently is a very very old property with absolute lack of will on part of management to change anything. The rooms are furnished with old run down shabby furniture. Air conditioner was not working at... More

Wu Gong hotel is a nice clean hotel in a very safe location. The rooms are large & modern. Breakfast is a large spread but doesnt vary too much everyday. Nanjing road which I read is the "Las Vegas" of Shanghai is about 10 mins walk. Its a nice place to be during the day but at night full of... More

Great location, and although there were some expected communication issues the service at the hotel is pretty good. The only real downfall of this hotel, and it's a a big downfall, is the need to refresh the rooms. The carpet in the room I was in had me fearing to remove my shoes, besides the large holes burnt into the... More

Old building but recently renovated rooms. Breakfast included and it is the same food everyday. It is located in the educational supplies and bookstore district of Shanghai. 3 blocks from the Nanjing Pedestrian Street. There are 2 convenient stores in the area, 1 across the hotel, and another one just around the corner. Internet is slow, but it is free... More

The room rate is reasonable. The location of the hotel is good, room condition is reasonably good in relation to the room rate. Breakfast is nice and provide sufficient choices if one is not too choosy. The only thing i found is the staffs at the reception counter are generally lack friendly and helpful, not very responsive to my questions... More

The location of this hotel is excellent: next to Shanghai Book city, 2 blocks south of Nanjing Donglu (the main shopping street) and easy transport access. For the price we paid at 398 RMB for a double, it was really good value for money. Get a room facing away Fuzhou Lu so that you don't get the traffic noise from... More

We found this hotel to be very comfortable. We had a high up room (8th floor) in the back, looking out over traditional low, tiled roofs which was interesting. The room and bathroom very clean. nice large picture window. special filtered water in the bathroom for drinking as well as the ubiquitous kettle, cups and free tea. There was also... More
