Experiencing the east building! The room has the inconvenience of three steps from bedroom and bathroom that results very dangerous during night without lights . The rest of the room was very satisfactory . Wide window facing a small pagoda was very pleasant. Comfortable bed and overall services are sufficient standards . I did not practice the " too Chinese... More

You get what you pay for - this room is very small - both by square foot and vertically - I had to duck to get into the bathroom and also to enter into the room. The bed was even harder than the typical Chinese bed. Only saving grace was the location - close to metro and close to theatre

This hotel located about 12 minutes walk from the nearest metro station(Jian Temple). Stayed in the annex building behind the main tower - about 70 meters. No connecting roofed walkway. The room was considerably comfortable but the window is facing someone's kitchen - just a mere 2 meters away. The breakfast was quite lavish but not for guest who not... More

I have had a 2-night stay on 17 and 18 June 2013 at CNY590 per night with breakfast - the booking was done by my business contact in Shanghai. Good points: 1. It is safe. 2. The room is quite big and comfortable (for a couple although am alone) and reasonably well cleaned. 3. The bed and pillow are comfortable.... More

To start with, the location is pretty darn good. Everything else is poor to average. The room feels crowed and is old. The bathroom roof is very low, if you are taller then 6 foot, DO NOT stay here. The hotel is barely above motel 168 standard. I do not see how it can claim to be a four star... More

Hotel is has poor amenities. Our group met at the lobby bar for drinks 1st night before dinner and they did not even have enough cold beers (we were the only group in the bar!) There is no proper restaurant - breakfast is in a function hall with buffet table along the side. All dining tables are for 8 persons... More

Yan'an Hotel is not one of the finest hotels in Shanghai - but it is a good alternative for those on a budget. The public areas are lovely, and the hotel is clean - but the rooms are small, air conditioning can't keep up on hot days, and quality of service is variable. English is hit or miss. Breakfast buffet... More

Yan'an hotel is on a very main street, so it was always convenient to get taxis even on those chilly winter days and nights. The reception desk is decently helpful, and some even speak a little English. They organised booking us taxis and calling the airports to find out which one we were meant to be going to, to fly...

I stayed in the hotel for 7 nights. It was comfortable and room service was good enough. Restaurant has a room service too, if you want to have your food at your room. But it closes at 10 o'clock. The hotel is closer to Shanghai Exhibition center /old one/ and locates in central part of Shanghai.
