We liked this hotel but ended up switching because it was not what we needed for this particular trip. The location is great if you are into shopping - an easy walk to Nanjing Rd. Jing An is also very central, so everything is easy to get to. The hotel itself is very tastefully decorated with antique-style Chinese furnishings, making it a great taste of China and very warn and cosy. The service is pretty much non-existent, so keep that in mind. You aren't paying for it, so fair enough. For us, this was a work trip though and although we booked the business room, it was quite small and very dark (the whole cosy vibe does not involve much lighting). There was only just enough space for one person to use their computer, making work impossible for us, let alone two internet connections. Internet is very slow too. There is a window but it looks out onto a contruction site which is actually very noisy in the mornings and wakes you up bright and early. For us, this meant we felt a bit closed in and could only handle a few days of it before we needed more space to breathe. We ended up moving to a less central location to get the extra breathing room. Depending on your objectives though, this could very well do the job for you.
Oh yes - if you have any mobility issues you may have trouble accessing the rooms. There is an elevator but it does not circumvent the need to climb stairs with your luggage (with no help). Our room was also a very, very long way from the lift area.
