I stayed here for one night last week when I knew I'd be in town too late to be able to make the train back home to Jiangsu. I wasn't expecting much, just a typical 3 star lodging, centrally located. The standard rooms were all sold out so I booked the "Business Queen Room" and it was immense, way more... More

I stayed at Jinchen Hotel due to the fact it is conveniently located, close to Metro, shopping areas, public transport and restaurants and bars. HOTEL This is a 3 Star hotel so do not complaint, and do not expect facilities of a 5 Star hotel. ROOM My standard room was so tiny, about 20sqm or less. Bed was clean and... More

My secretary booked this hotel so I can visit the downtown Shanghai and avoid traffic. The only good thing about this hotel was location and mabe clean bed. Other than that, this hotel is terrible.

I have stayed in this hotel each time I come to Shanghai - about 4 times per year - for the last 4 years. The rooms are generally reasonably clean although some need to be redecorated. Best rooms are on the 7th (top) floor - no smoking rooms. Free wifi available. Breakfast buffet quite good. The location is top! Close... More

This hotel was recommended by a Shanghai business associate. He booked a standard room for me at 698RMB. I could not believe when I opened room 608: Dark, dirty carpets (blood stain?), chair wedged between the bed and the window, overlooking the view of the 15 foot satellite dish. Air conditioner did not work. TV had jumping horizontal lines. The... More

We stayed for 6 nights at the Jinchen Hotel on Huaihai Rd. in the French Concession area, which is fairly centrally located and well accessible to most of the places you'll probably be headed. It's about a 5 minute walk from the closest station (South Shaanxi Rd) and surrounded by nothing but shopping and restaurants, including a highly rated Peking... More

The staff at this hotel was very friendly and accommodating to us while we were there, They serve a fine breakfast buffet with western and eastern style food and, best of all for me, free coffee refills! This made my day. Location is great on a major road in the French Concession. We walked a few blocks to the subway... More

We spent 4 nights in this hotel, and thought it was good value for the money. The location is really excellent, in the French Concessions area, with plenty of nice stores, restaurants, close to the action yet not too touristy, with a local flavor which we appreciated. The hotel is not too big (only 7 floors), which we liked too,... More

The Jinchen hotel in Shanghai is a nice property with a location that is only about one block from a metro stop. The hotel is on Huaihai road, which is a popular shopping area in the French Concession, but even though my room faced the road, I heard very little street noise. The room was not large, but fine for... More

The hotel is located in a decent location in the French Concession. Its right on the main street of Hauihai Zhonglu. The location of the hotel is great. Right next door is a Mcdonalds, which is great for a late night snack (open till 12am). And next to Mcdonalds is a Watsons for all your other needs (Drinks, snacks, toiletries).... More
