“Excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Excellent location just a few minutes walk to The Bund, Nanjing Shopping, YuYuan Old Town, Peoples Square etc.
Executive room was very large with own lounge area. Great views of the river and Pudong skyline from the higher floors. Large corner bath and power shower located in large bathroom. Bed comfortable. Breakfast - not the greatest choice but choice of Chinese and Western foods available.
Free internet in rooms, but it is a wired connection, not wi-fi! Portable wi-fi routers can be bought locally for about £10- £15.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views

We were very happy with this hotel with its location, great views and beautiful suite. Right outside is an interesting neighborhood with lots of small shops and street life,then just a short walk away is the famous Bund area of Shanghai. The room was large, well appointed, very quiet, with a very comfortable bed and a great shower. Served on the 31st floor, breakfast was excellent with amazing views of the city. There is also a bar and restaurant on the 31st floor for enjoying the neon at night. The staff was friendly, patient and efficient and all spoke workable English.

Our only negative experience was with the "gym" which was located in a low-ceiling hotel room-sized space with 6 machines, three of which were broken.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

We stayed for 3 nights in a business suite and had a good price with Expedia including buffet breakfast and free wifi in the room. We were very pleased with the spacious bedroom and separate lounge area, both with TV's. The king size bed was comfortable and the room was very clean and well maintained. The buffet breakfast was adequate with plenty to choose from.
The reception staff were very busy, but gave an acceptable level of service.
We liked the location, walking distance to the Bund, People's Square and the Nanjing Road East Station.

We chose this hotel based on price and once again were delighted with the value for money. Just a couple of blocks from the Bund and main shopping area it proved to be a very central location. The views were delightful especially at night and the room was very generous with a separate lounge area off the bedroom. Totally recommend.

Room Tip: Non smoking a plus

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We stayed 3 nights (Executive Business suite/ 25th floor/Bund view – very impressive) in this hotel. Ground floor reception staff directed us to the executive lounge at level 31 for the check-in (as our reservation was for a business suite). Most of the staff could speak adequate English and some of them did their job as they are behind a railway ticket counter.

The suite was spacious and well furnished. The bathroom was equipped with a shower unit (with hydro massage jets) outside the bathtub. The bathtub is far too big for the bathroom. It looks to me that some areas in the room are not properly maintained/cleaned for sometime, especially bathroom.

If possible avoid having anything at the restaurant in the 31st floor. It looks like no maintenance work done for sometime. We had one meal (dinner) on the night we arrived Shanghai but never again. I can’t understand why the management is not taking some efforts to refurbish this place and offer some decent food. Also I have to mention that the restaurant staffs were more interested about watching TV than serving the guests.

Wired Internet and breakfast (buffet) was included in our room rate. There were lots of dishes but nothing (except the fruits) is worth mentioning.

The reception staff told us that the free Wi-Fi is available in the lobby area. You need to have a login username/password. I got at least 2 sets of usernames/passwords but none of them worked correctly. Room internet connection was fine (as it was wired but also required a username/password).

Hotel location is great as you are close distance to Bund, Peoples Square and Nanjing road. The view at night is really amazing.

Room Tip: High floor rooms facing bund have great views

This is our second stay at this hotel and we love it.

It is 5 minutes walk to Nanjing east station. We booked city view room this time where our room is on the 20th floor and also facing the harbor.

Breakfast is great, a variety of food which is plenty to choose from. Table is limited so come early.

Checked in in on the 31st floor, check out in on ground floor. There is cable Internet in room. Bed is hard, however relative to the many hotels that we stayed in China, it is the best one. So no complain there.

Most room is huge, separate lounge and bedroom. There are 2 TVs in the room, however the TVs are analog which is my only complaint.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor and harbor view

It is an average hotel but location is great, nice clean room. We stay in 25th floor with band view and suitable price for the service
It is just short walk from hotel to Nanjin Road which is only a good shopping pace in Shanghai. The breakfast served from 6 to 10 am with buffet and Chinese food. Language is a big problem considering the hotel status few staff shall be these to speak foreign languages especially English. Language is a big hardly you will find anyone from their staff could understand English
