Unpleasant front desk staff. Because we had a special rate they eliminated the free breakfast. Wifi difficult to get on. Concierge was the nice person there. Limited the number of towels we had. Everything we asked about was difficult. At 1:30 pm, restaurant was empty. Looked like no one had been there.

I must have stayed on the not yet refurbished floor. Look I dont care what the lobby looked like with its big chairs. After a late night flight all I want is a good comfortable bed and I must say this was the worse and hardest bed I slept on in all China, Management did their best with room attendant... More

We stayed one weekend, then returned two weeks later, this hotel is close to The Bund, Old Shanghai, and the silk market. The rooms have great amenities, are very clean and quiet. We had room service for one meal, it was quick, tasty, and a great price.

The hotel and rooms are really nice and clean. Wifi works well. Good location. Only a short walk to the bund promenade. The beds are ridiculous though.. It's like sleeping on wooden boards and the aircon is really noisey. Wouldn't stay here again.

I don't understand why people complain about lack of English is a non english speaking country. The staffs English was limited but I didn't have any problems. The room was nice and clean. I stayed in a deluxe room and it was huge. The location is great. Less than 10 minutes walk from the back side of the hotel is... More

Great location. Nice view of Bund. Excellent overall. Breakfast ok for price. No bar to speak of. Drinks got delivered to lounge area. On river front so two minutes waslk to Bund. Not any atmosphere. City Hotel. We had two rooms. Fine. Toiletries and robes provided. Adequate for price. Very near old town. and Bund.

It is in walking distance to yu garden and shopping district. It is really cheap i have shared the room with my friend and just paid 180 dollars total. Breakfast was ok , they could have done better. It is good for couples, budget travelers and singles

The location is excellent, because in five minutes walk brings you The Bund The treatment is very correct but the receptionists at night do not understand about English. In the morning we managed train tickets to Beijing and were all very friendly. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious with very comfortable beds, very clean bathroom and full of character. From...

Walk across the road and you are on the Bund. You can stroll along the river front and view the amazing skyline on the far side. The hotel has enormous leather seats in the foyer, the rooms are a good size. You will not have a good view of the river despite the hotel name. Breakfast is good but not... More
