This hotel is really well located near line 2 Jing An Temple. The rooms are a little bit old but clean, so it is ok for the price. The staff don t speak good english but is very helpfull. Maybe a good choice for a reasonnable budget.

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

We stayed here for 4 nights and were quite surprised at the size of our apartment. We had a kitchen, a couch and just loads of room! Bathroom was modern and clean. Just nice little touches like free water every day, free dvd hire (not that we used it!), a little welcome pack with fruit and our kitchen table set.... More

While World Union might not be the best option if you're looking for a place to crash for a few nights, it's a great place to stay for a couple weeks to a few months. The apartment (1bath/1bed/living room) we had was equipped with electric burners and a range, microwave, sink, and utensils. There was also plenty of furniture to... More

This is an amazingly convenient place to stay in Shanghai. At first, when I finally found the front entrance, I was full of trepidation as it is NOT a Hotel Lobby - rather a entrance to an office building. With the Reception on the 16th floor and in a corner "office", the illusion doesn't stop. But, the room was amazing... More
