“Not worth the convenience (even if your office is nearby)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

I mistakenly stayed here since it was near my office. I moved after one night. Even our locally based staff do not use this hotel when they come to Shanghai from other cities in China.

Staff is friendly, English capability varies by member but not dependable. Rate was very reasonable but location was too far away from the city to be used as a base for exploring Shanghai. (I hear it is not too far for site of Future site of Disneyland). Facilities are very tired. The bathroom and linens were clean. The mini-bar fridge was missing from my room. There were Mosquitos in my room (but also a device for killing them). I was in a regular room and it smelled like smoke. They apparently do have a non-smoking floor but was booked while I was there. The bed appeared clean but was rock hard. Escort service introduction cards were slipped under the door of the room my colleague was in. This makes one worry about security.
I moved to a hotel about 30 minutes away (halfway to the downtown area). Overall, not worth the convenience.

If you are here for meeting, stay here for the convenience (or at the Howard Johnson about 1 mile away). Otherwise, if you like a decent room that has some class or character, forget it!

The meeting rooms are beautiful; the lobby is shoddy; there are a few shops in the complex that are useful.

Only go if you have to!

Stayed here for 4 days during Dec 2011. Rooms were neat and well furnished. Bathrooms were clean. Breakfast spread was elaborate. The only drawback is that it is a bit far from Shanghai city centre. However, there are shops, banks and restaurants nearby.

This Riverfront Business Hotel is good and nice! The price performance is really acceptable and incl. Internet access and Breakfast it is a nice location to stay in Shanghai. The Hotel is within a small center incl. Restaurant, Bank etc. but there is not much around and especially at night everything is closed (only the Hotel is open of course). The Breakfast can be taken in the next door's Restaurant (it's included) and the dishes are Chinese but really nice with a lot of selections.

Hi all!
I have spent one week in this hotel, it is fantastic.
Brand New Hotel
Everything is new
Clean, good buffets,
Lovely stay and the price is very low
Big rooms, big lobby, very few guests.
The only disadvantage is that it is faaaar away from the down town or anything.

It costs 70 yuan by taxi to the downtown

But for a luxirious stay, with low cost, this is your choice.

Excellent for bussiness travellers.
