This hotel had a lot of good things about it. Two things got it two stars.
First, we requested a room with one bed. I went to Shanghia with my wife. We arrived at the hotel and all they had left was doubles. Even worse, the double rooms had small beds. Maybe a full, there was no way my wife and I could comfortably share a bed. Kinda puts a damper on the trip. I asked every night for the three nights we stayed at the hotel- never an open room with just one bed. I think it was because we booked as part of a group of 10 rooms and our group rate just wasn't enough money for us to get the bigger bed. Frustrating. Our group booking clearly stated we requested one bed.
The second reason for the low rating is less important. The rooms were a bit dated and so were the toilets. The TV's were updated and so was the décor but the night stand looked like it was from the '60s and the toilet had more buttons than the TV, kinda weird (Maybe it's a Japanese thing, that is the brand of this hotel chain.). The rest of the hotel was very nice and very up to date.
Breakfast was huge and really good. Make sure to book it as part of your stay. It's not that expensive to add onto the stay but it is expensive to just pay out of pocket day of. There was food from every part of Asia and all sorts of American and European breakfast foods.
180 RMB for a Taxi to the international Airport. Not bad at all. Super close to two different subway stations with different trains. You can quickly get anywhere.
