We arrived in the late morning from Pudong airport. Keen to experience the Maglev with our son., this meant getting the metro to Jin Ang metro station. Unfortunately our arrival in Shanghai city centre coincided with a torrential downpour. The correct exit is number 5 which is closest to the hotel but we did not know this on our arrival... More

Stayed here in June 2014 for six nights as part of a business trip. Agree with an earlier review that it has the feel of a place a little past its best. The decor feels dated and there was a strange odour that pervades many parts of the hotel, particularly the lifts. This is almost certainly due to the fact... More

Stayed here for 6 nights recently on business trip. Our first choice place was fully booked but this still came recommended so I was expecting a lot more. The location is good, short taxi ride to most place and close to a subway station, but the hotel itself was disappointing. The rooms were dated, and although breakfast starts at 6am,... More

I've stayed at the Kuala Lumpur branch where the rooms are far more updated and the device more sincere and solicitous, especially to the disabled. Maid service wins the day for them but not the front desk service. Check in staff might need retraining in KL for decorous service. Concierge is helpful.

I have stayed here twice now on my own while travelling on business, good location, clean and tidy, staff friendly, although reception can seem to get busy, great spa which is good value and just been refurbished, breakfast is buffet style and of a good standard, great as a base.

Hotel is in a great location and has a bank conveniently located next door. The breakfast buffet had a great selection of both Western and Chinese options. However, the seating arrangement was limited and all 3 mornings we struggled to find a table. The rooms were adequate size, very clean, and had nice bathrooms and a shower with good water... More
