“good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

As Motel 168's are franchise operations you never quite know what to expect from this budget chain, however this one is OK.

Staff speak little English but as it is off the tourist route you should not expect more.

The room was small but clean and comfortable, the shower was good but the idea of a tall window between the shower and the bedroom was a little odd. Aircon was very powerful and internet connection good.

Rooms can be a little noisy as this is on a main road and the location is not good for many things.

To work the lift you need to swipe your key card, it is a pity that this was not explained as the notice in the lift is only in Chinese.

I stayed in this hotel on April 7, 2013 due to its close proximity to Century Avenue Line 2 Metro. However while checking out on April 8 I got stuck in Shanghai traffic & could check out by 1.30 pm. The reception staff charged me 50% of 1 day tariff for my 1.30 hrs. delay in checking out & also he did not issue me the receipt for this 50% amount. As I had to catch my flight, I could not stay there to insist for the receipt.

Being at the airport this was the ideal place to stay due to a early morning flight. The staff cannot speak English and the front desk service was really very bad. There was no sugar or coffee so this really isn't a coffee table for western visitors, clearly only for Asians, its a huge disappointed for me as thinking a huge international airport hotel would cater for English speaking people on a visit. The holding deposit was not return in 24 hours and has cost me double for this room and phone calls, don't pay on your card you wont get the money back easily. Pay cash and get cash back.

To star with, the reception staff need to re train in customer service. They need to smile and no doubt to act in a poltie manner.

The room. Absolutly filty. the green carpet did not look green anymore it looked more
like black carpet. The coffee table was far outdated and filty. The bathroom ? the shower head was falling apart , Around the shower cubical it needed not a clean but a spring clean with stron cleaning agents to remove the scum sround. it was filty all around.
Dust and dirt under the bed. ( I moved the bed to collect an item I droped on the filty carpet and could not beleive the filth under the bed.
I have taken picture of waht I have described above. This is an unhealthy place to stay not even for 30 minutes. The hotel is too busy turning around people with no regards to their wellbeing . The breakfast. RMB it was cheap and nasty. Could not eat it.
