one of the advantages i got from this hotel was its proximity to my business venue - that's it. the place itself is tucked in a narrow alley, a short walking distance from the main street so there's no worry about noise because there are several bars lined along the street. i like the small garden outside the place where you can hang out or have coffee in the morning. the lobby is quite dark which makes it a lot smaller than it already is. there are a few tables which can sit around 10 people max so breakfast can be a bit of a riot. i do like to take my breakfast leisurely so i was not very pleased with this. the only consolation to this is the food itself leaves much to be desired. better to have coffee and buns at the nearby Starbucks in Shanghai Convention.
as expected with any other establishment in China, the staff can hardly understand or speak English which can be very frustrating at times. my colleagues and i spent almost half an hour checking in and the same when we checked out. my room on the 3rd level was pretty comfortable in terms of sleep quality. there are no windows so the room smells a bit musky. nothing a linen spray cannot fix. toilets are clean enough so that's a plus. all in all i would probably try another hotel next time i go to shanghai. one can get a better deal for the price. this was a one time deal for me.
