Where do I start - there is no English traveler information such as Metro maps or tours. The reception staff speak very little English. The Internet pc is in Chinese and I couldn't work out the control panel menu to find the correct panel to change the language. Of my six day stay I had maybe three days of hot... More

We were shocked to see how dirty the bathroom was, especially the shower stall, it had lots of hair, grime, tiles seemed to have never been cleaned. (Changed room once, we were given a bigger room, but condition was about the same.) Same condition around sink faucets. Dirt and dust everywhere else. Shower didn't work properly, with no consistency in... More

Booked through hotels.com, seemed an ok option for the price. Stayed for 3 nights. Rooms were clean and fine. Overall hotel could you some more cleaning. Breakfast doesn't have much too offer, but we booked it upfront as a part of package so we tried to eat some dumplings and toasts. Staff is ok. The best thing was location- close... More

At $25 a room (we booked through Hotels.com), you cannot beat this hotel for its location. Only 5 minutes walk and you're at the Nanjing East metro station on Nanjing Road. But don't expect too much at that price. The hotel's common areas need a bit of Pledge and some elbow grease - you can write your name in the... More

The best point is the location. The hotel was on renovation in that time. The workers and materials movement used the same access way (elevator & stairs) with us. A lot of dust. The breakfast is very simple, don't hope too much. Fortunately, we spent a lot of time outside the hotel, just came back in the midnight for sleeping.... More

To find the hotel which is next to the Suzhou Creek: After my group tour of China, I stayed 2 extra nights in Shanghai and decided to go to a cheaper hotel as the one with the tour was expensive and faraway. I booked Lakeside Holiday Inn via Hotel Club so thought it should be reliable. So I checked out... More

We stayed in this hotel because of its distance from the underground and price and we got what we wanted. The hotel is situated facing the river and was difficult to find at first. Close by are some nice little shops and locals who cook on the street for you. It was a good base to see all that we... More
