“Ok for a short stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times on my way through Shanghai for business at found it to be good value for money. The staff do their best to accommodate English and there is a western Resturant as well as a Chinese Resturant in the hotel which both provide adequate meals. The beds are traditionally Chinese hardness but othrenthenthat the rooms are of good size and clean. Xian tan di a great dinning area along with many other options are only aprox $10 USD away by cab.

Stayed November 2011, traveled on business

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

Stayed here because it was close to a conference in local university.

My poor rating is based on the following.

Poor english spoken by all staff.

Dirty carpet in room.

Dirty bath in room.

Expensive food and coffee in bar.

A great deal of noise from nearby road junction and train line.

Rude reception staff.

The good points????

It was clean overall

Room size reasonable

Cheap chinese restaurants nearby.

As for local eateries? There a few across the road and we tried three of them. Compared to England they are very cheap. But the menus are very chinese i.e. food not to western palette. The one we do recommend is the one with the word 'summer' on the sign. The proprietor was very helpful and friendly. he spoke no english but did have good sign language skills. You cook your own food at the table in a big steam pot. a bit like a fondue.

This hotel offered me a great price, a great location (very close to Metro), free internet, obliging staff, a full size room, and zero real problems. I will definitely stay there again if their rate remains so competetive.
The in-room safe was too small for my laptop. There's not much in the immediate neighbourhood, although the canals are interesting and one Metro station away is a giant shopping mall. Also, there is a huge development under construction next to the Metro.

The location of the hotel is on a crowded street with much noise and the near by area is not so clean but however once insde the hotel it is quite clean and comfortable.The service was decent with reasonable good staff. The rooms were small with good hygiene. The rooms had the basic amenities with fairly good room service. The food was good but the space was less as it was very crowded in the breakfast area which was jusy situated next to the lobby which made it very noisy.

It was terribel- from the food to the bed to the service! Front desk didn't speak any English and were very rude at best for the 110 of us! Terrible location in a dumpy area of city, shops were far away, rooms run down and dirty including the bed, carpets even worse! There are much more well known Hotels to chose from, would never stay here again.

Service was good. Room good, but carpet was dirty and shabby. Location is good for Hangqiao airport, but a little far from downtown, but the subway is just 1/2 block from hotel. TV channels were just in Chinese. Breakfast had a good variety of foods. Bed was the standard Chinese hard variety. But the price is right.
