Great hotel in a fantastic location. A 1min walk to the subway station and a 10min walk to the bund river boulevard. Also close to some lovely bakeries which is sometimes necessary if like me you find it difficult to handle the Chinese breakfast being noodles or burger like buns filled with meat. The staff in the hotel reception speak... More

I just stayed at the Narada for seven nights and I must add my voice to the chorus of praise expressed by many, but not all, for this hotel. I could not be happier with my choice. The location is superb. It is just a few hundred yards away from the subway and a 10 to 15 minute walk to... More

Spent 2 night last week (10/29, 30, 2014). It is now referred to as Narada Boutique Hotel YuYuan Garden. It is well run, modest in size with excellent staff from the front desk, to dining room, to housekeeping. I arrived early and they could accommodate me immediately. What a nice change. After 14 days across China, this was the most... More

I booked a family room 3 months before our checked in date and fully paid at the time of booking. We arrive at the hotel at noon and told the family room is occupied, as the official checkin time is 2pm, the staff told us that it was an "upgraded" so we didn't insist. Instead of getting a family room... More

SSAW is a a good hotel for its price....its neat and the staff is friendly.....location is good too....but something was missing.....maybe the luxury of 5 star hotels....sometimes 3-4 star hotels are so well maintained and designed...that you don't miss the luxury of 5 stars.....this is the only thing they lacked i feel....They have changed its name to Narada Boutique hotel...
