Was not a luxury building but was very nice. The room was small but we were aware of that going in so that was fine. Felt safe. Location worked well for walking to metro and sights. Employees were very pleasant and helpful. Some other Americans were also staying here. Would stay here again. If your looking for a tours/concierge this... More

Considering the huge amount of choice one has when they visit Shanghai, I would highly recommend looking else where if terms of accommodation. First impressions were very good, the building itself is beautiful however, the good first impressions soon vanished after visiting my room. I am in the process of moving to another hotel so I'll make this short. Bad... More

I wanted a cheap hotel with a convenient Bund location -- and this definitely fit the bill. I paid around US$50 for my final night in Shanghai. The hotel is on a side street just off the Bund, and within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. There is a subway stop about five minutes away, too. The room was just... More

So many hotels I visit are the same. The same furniture, the same colour scheme. They are satisfactory but they are monotonous. This hotel breaks with that business hotel style. It is furnished in the 1930's Art Deco style throughout. This is very in keeping with the location, just of the Bund and Nanjing Road which were built during the... More

As other reviewers have said, it's a really tightly packed room with an even tighter packed bathroom! I had no window / natural light, so indeed it was dim, but I slept like a baby. It was kept spotlessly clean whilst I was there. I was travelling solo, so for me it was absolutely fine. Good location not far from... More

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days during my first solo trip to Shanghai. Room is quiet ok, but a bit dim for me. Bed is comfortable but the bathroom is small, feels like you are on the airplane's lavatory :D but it's fine for solo travelers like me. location is good too. it is about 10 mins away from... More

I stayed at deluxe room with window. The room is good but air condition doesn't cold. The temperature outside was better. The location of this hotel is good for walking to the Bund and Nanjing road. Near hotel has convenient stores and some of restaurants. Anyway it's difficult to find a taxi in this area. Talking about service, I felt... More

Stayed in the suite of this hotel for 6 nights during my 1 week visit to Shanghai and nearby cities. As the title says, this is basically an average hotel. Upside: - The only plus point of this hotel is the location. It's located just 3 mins walk to The Bund, 5 mins walk to the nearest entrance of East... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location, directly on the Bund downtown and very close to the main Nanjing road. Especially for the rate paid, it's hard to find something similar with this location. Of course, it is not a fancy hotel. The rooms are very basic with no windows and a small bathroom but if you are... More
