“Poor location, poor service and in need of serious refurbishment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Incidentally the photo shown is not of this hotel. The hotel itself looks more like a brothel than a hotel. The location is appalling, there is absolutely nothing around the hotel. You need a taxi to go anywhere and that is if the taxi want to take you back...

My room was huge, well appointed and clean but there are traces of a serious water leak near the window.

Staff have a very limited knowledge of English

We have stayed in this hotel already last year & beacuse its close to the expo fair and also because all other good hotels were booked, we decided to give one more try also this year. Bad choice, the only what is ok about this hotel are rooms (size, furnishing) all the rest would rate as 1 or no star at all! Location is in the middle of nowhere, the personell barely comprehend any English! The restaurant is closed, so if you get hungry in the evening you must take a taxi to get to down town. The breakfast is one of the worsest i have seen, if you are local chineese you will survive, but for rest of us there is no choice!!! Overall for this money you can get much better hotels in the area!

We would give a 5star to the room alone - our room was super big and the bathroom was almost same size of the room! The room itself is amazing. Reception is very small and staff don't speak much English. The location of the hotel is probably the only downturn. If you are not having any business or work related to Expo, then you will far from everywhere else. Apart from the location, hotel itself is pretty good. Didn't try the food but the hotel doesn't seem to offer much. The ground floor is not very welcoming as it is not big enough. we loved the furniture and room decoration. It was one of the best deluxe rooms ever. Hope to see the area regenerating, so it would become easier to catch taxis in future.

Despite being in my 50's I have never felt strongly enough to complain in writing about anything so that should give an indication as to how bad this place was during my 4 day stay last week. The following are just a few lowlights
1/ Total power outage in my room once a day for 3 days which meant 3 trips to reception and 3 trips back to the room to meet the maintenance guy who 'fixed' it each time.
2/ Whilst in the middle of my last morning's breakfast i was told (loudly) to stop eating and come to reception and pay cash for it even though they'd swiped my credit card and taken a deposit that had a long way to go before being used up.
3/ Whilst sitting at the bar, the waiter thought it was funny to throw various items from a distance in to a bin that was right in front of me. I walked away after he walked up to the bin, made a loud nasal snorting sound and spat in to the bin.

Room Tip: Don't go

I stayed here for 4 days last month. very good spacious rooms. the service is very good. Need to improve serivce in the restaurant. we had no issue in finding the hotel. the best thing to do is get some one in the airport (there is a row of desks manned by very helpful staff just after clearing customs) to write the name of the hotel in a piece of paper in big letters !. We used this paper instead of the printed hotel address and had no problem. sometimes taxies are reluctant to take us there from the expo as it is very close to the venue. I would recommend this place for those who come to shanghai expo.

Locationwise it is located kind of in the middle of nowhere, by the side of a major road, finding taxi is not so easy even with assistance from the hotel staff, which is kind of required since cab drivers will speak zero english.
The rooms are absolutely amazing, one of the best I have ever stayed at. Bathroom is so big I didn't even find the bathtub until day 2 of my stay.
There is a seven-eleven type store behind the hotel, ask the staff how to get there (at night they walked with me there as you have to pass quite a shady alley), otherwise there is absolutely nothing nearby.

The room is extraordinary excellent. Good design, big space, romantic atmosphere. Say the truth, it really fits for the lovers!

The service is just so so, front desk need more passion. If you are expecting night life, pls take a taxi because there's no bar, restaurant etc nearby(It is said there is a Sauna in this hotel especially for man~~but Im not sure ). And as said, the south side of the building face a big road and may a lit bit nosiy(I don't care).

Summary I will consider it again if price is reasonable for valentine or wedding anniversary.
