I stayed in both the standard double room and the single room. Both are very small and I found the single room to be better valued than the standard twin-sharing room. The shower-room in the single is a work of art in space management. I was there during the Shanghai Expo and as such, the price was on the high side. This is a budget hotel so don’t overpay to stay there. Breakfast was included but you would not miss much if you choose to skip it. The breakfast area could get very crowded and chaotic also.
The saving grace and the best aspect of this hotel is its location, almost next to the Da Shi Jie metro station (Line 8, Dark Blue). It is four stops from the Shanghai Train Station (including one transfer) and about 30 minutes from the Shanghai South Train Station. I also took the metro (not the magnetic train) to Shanghai Pudong Airport. The whole journey was about 90 minutes. It is a fairly straight forward trip and it is one of the cheaper ways to get there. The station is also within a few stops of the other major metro lines so it is very quick to transfer to them. Nearby, there are many diners around and they open till very late.
