Located 100 mts from Jing'an temple subway station this was an ideal base for our 4 day holiday in Shanghai. Staff speak fluent English and the concierge was very helpful in planning our daily outings. Can buy China Mobile SIM card from Concierge at 100 RMB but this card will allow you to make calls within China although no restriction on receiving International calls/text messages.
Good free wifi in the room and speed was adequate for browsing & email. Rooms were clean and the toilet was large and well planned out. Eating choices close to the hotel abound with a food court in the subway station as well as the shopping plaza opposite. Exchange rates at the hotel are better than what you get from outside and no hidden commission. Taxi ride to Pudong airport is 45 minutes and cost 250RMB. Subway has direct connection to both Pudong & Honqqiao airport although the ride from Pudong is 90 minutes hence would not advocate this after a long flight. Hongqqiao railway station also has a direct connection thru subway from where we took the bullet train to Beijing. Room service was excellent and fast and so was the housekeeping. Situated at the corner of West Nanjing road access to shops is easy. You can go to the Bund by subway and get off at East Nanjing Road and walk about 7 minutes. Subway connects you throughout Shanghai and we never took a cab ride anywhere.
Shanghai subway was great with maps and announcements in English so navigating and reaching your destination is a breeze. Overall a great holiday and comfortable stay at the hotel.
