“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Centrally located hotel. Have lot of restaurants with different type of foods. Morning breakfast has a wide variety of foods. Service is good. Room rates can be changed depend upon booking/occupancy. One problem for foreigners are most of the employees in the hotel including front desk can not speak English.

Room Tip: Try to book thru' Internet to get lower room rate. right hand side rooms have nice view.

As many hotels in China. Very far from The Bund and the smoke smell in the hotel is terrible.
By the way, this is a very serious problem in China. Smoking is free and all hotels have carpets.....and people smoke in the ailes or elevators.
Rooms are big, breakfast is reasonable, lobby is nice but English still rare in the hotels.

Reasonably priced. Hotel is good as a business stay and not for leasure. Service is not at par with international standards. Food quality and variety is OK. Located in a good locality. Good dining options.

Room Tip: Not necessary

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

We have booked early so we have got better rate. Room was very good, bed was not so soft . My colleague stayed in non-smoking room which was much better than mine . Bath room was better than smoking room. We have an excellent view of flyovers and skyscrapers. Breakfast has excellent choice of foods.
Only problem with staffs as most of them are very poor in English.
One can get English news paper from 1st floor (resurant for breakfast).

Room Tip: Book room early to get better offer..

This was the last hotel on our CITS tour of China and it left something to be desired. The two-tier lobby (of which they are VERY proud!) is nice but not useful when you need to go to breakfast on one floor and check out on the other floor.

The room was tired and the bathtub was dirty and moldy along the edges. The bathmat was so moldy I chose not to use it at all for fear of foot fungus - better to take my chances in the tub itself. The toilet did not flush consistently.

The beds were not as hard as some we had experienced, but the windows were pitiful - you could hear every honk and car drive by on the freeway outside the window 19 stories below.

The breakfast in the hotel restaurant did have lots of choice but tables were scarce some mornings.

The drive to the main sights was easy because of our tour guide and private driver, and they were only about 15-20 minutes away for the most part. There are a few local restaurants around if you are willing to walk 30 minutes to find them but the hotel does have several restaurants (we did not try these) if you don't want to venture out into the traffic.

It was an okay hotel, but we would stay elsewhere if we were to return to Shanghai.
