“No AC, otherwise great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This hotel had large, modern, stylish rooms (I could could lift the blinds from my bathroom if I wanted to look out to the ocean while I bathed), and an excellent breakfast buffet. I had no trouble communicating with the staff in English.
I would have given this hotel a "5" if they had only ben willing to turn the AC on. It wasn't hot outside (a nice upper 70's F) but this isolated high-rise really bakes in the sun, and the rooms were in the upper 80's during the day, lower 80's at night. There's a tiny (1 ft2) window you can open, but that's it. All the guests had their doors into the hall open during the day, because the rooms were sweltering. But at night, you have to close the door, and it's hard to sleep. The management repeatedly assured us that the AC had been fixed/turned on/would be fixed soon, but no luck in three days. I think the AC is simply turned off come October, and the guests can like it or lump it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

I set my expectation very low with this hotel. No English review so far here in tripadvisor and none is much written about the hotel aside from its official website. I honestly dont know what to expect from this hotel far far from downtown Shanghai.

The hotel is massive. It will give you the space you need and much much more. Our room was upgraded from a deluxe seaview room to a deluxe seaview suite due to high occupancy. The suite is much bigger than the whole 2nd floor of our apartment with floor to ceiling glass window. It has a walk thru closet, bath tub, separate toilet and bath, living room, working desk and the bedroom with a bonus day bed.

You will wake up to the unobstructed view of the Hangzhou Bay. If you love just lying in bed and enjoying the view, this is it for you.

There is free broadband internet in the room which is a big plus.

The breakfast can be better but good enough even for vegetarians. There are just so many guests at the time we were there.

A leisurely walk from the hotel is the City Beach and maple tree lined streets to the busy part of Xincheng Road.

The staff can all speak in English enough for you to understand and converse. They are all very helpful in all questions and request. We went to Jinshan via public transportation, it was far but not difficult to locate as it is widely known in the area. Hotel staff will call taxi for you and it will be metered with receipt once you alight.

I really fell inlove with Jinshan because of Royal Tulip on the Beach.

Room Tip: Get the seaview room, it is definitely worth it.
