Well, dont expect too much from the property when it comes to rooms...they are old and need renovation however the best part of staying there is location, it is simply perfect: close to many dining outlets, famous Jingan temple, luxurious shopping. It is easy to travel around the city from this property too. So, if you are ready for 2-3... More

This hotel is very well located, close to the metro station Jing'an Temple (Line 2, the line that goes from Hongqiao Airport to Pudong Airport). The rooms are a little bit old but large and clean, with modern bathrooms, free mineral water every day. The bed was comfortable and the staff is very helpful, although they don’t really speak good... More

This studios would be a great place, if they just decide to clean it and change things full of stains - the carpet in the corridor, you don't even understand what was the original color. It's China, get used to it: a Skyscraper with luxury decoration, after 5 or 10 years is like a building for poor people in a... More

We stayed here for two weeks, while visiting Shanghai. It's in an excellent location, just a few minutes walk from the Metro station, large shopping mall and many shops, restaurants and bars. the facilities were a little worn and dated, but very clean and the staff were very helpful. There's a free "wash and dry" laundry service, with ironing and... More
