The hotel is near Nanjing Rd., the big shopping street, and People's Square. So, you can use it as a convenient base to sleep and shower before spending the day on the town. My room was a bit run-down, although not savagely so. The bathroom could have used a thorough scrubbing. I heard similar comments from other guests. On the... More

It's only a few minutes walk from the People's Square Metro station, and only a block away from People's Square, but it's located in a relatively quiet area. The hotel lobby looks like it could do a makeover, but it nevertheless looks okay. The rooms are pretty quiet, and the beds okay, but the smoking floors really reek of smoke... More

I came on a weekend visit to Shanghai during a three week study trip. The hotel is in a perfect location near the East Nanjing Road metro, so not far to walk with cases and good if you want to get to all the shops on Nanjing Road early. 3 of us shared a suite room and the other two... More

I live and work in the city, and stay here long-term due to it's proximity to my office. There are scores of places to eat & shop all within walking distance, and a major metro hub is just a half block away from the rear exit of the hotel. It isn't super luxurious, the staff isn't super friendly, the amenities... More

This hotel had an excellent location, only a couple of blocks from peoples square, and right near east nanjing road. Walking distance to the bund. It had a nice firm bed, staff spoke English, breakfast was ok- pretty good Chinese breakfast with a couple of western dishes (eggs, sausages, cereal, toast). We thought it was good value for money considering... More

Never book through clear trip as they are not directly handling & will advise all the human beings to never go this un civilised hotel, except the location priority, very old hotel & ridiculous staff & maintenance.
