My friend and I spent 7 nights in one of the apartments of this building. The reception was actually at the 16th floor, where one of the rooms was actually used as an office. The people there spoke quite a nice English (... for Chinese standards....) and we were able to communicate without any problems. The room we rented was... More

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

The only thing I dont like is the AC for heating, we were in shanghai during the Chinese new year, it was cold, but the AC in the room seems not working well, hope they could change to central heating system. But there are so many things I like about this hotel. *The price, its hard to find a hotel... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
