“Nice local hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had nice rooms overlooking the bund, which looked beautiful at night with all the lights. The hotel has a nice local feel to it. And is right at the bund and soo close to teh yuyuan garden, and shopping. The food is good, but the restaurant staff hardly understands much english.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We got a great deal and I think we got excellent value for money. Big nice room with a plethora of amenities and included extras. Excellent location. Nice big chinese breakfast with delicus dumplings. The free internet and wide asortment of englich tv channels another plus.

However. The service at the hotel was horrific. We stayed one week and not once did any staff member smile at us. The englich skills of the receptionists where poor and they clearly demonstarted that they had better things to do then to help us. Also there was a few minor details in the room that should have been more promtly fixed.

The beds in the room where so hard that at first we thought it was a joke.

over all I would say that this is a good hotel and I do recomend you to stay there. If the hotel focused more on service and details this hotel could be great.

Room Tip: ask for a room with soft beds.

I stayed at this hotel last year during a short trip to Shanghai. All I could remember is the very very hard bed. I thought I was sleeping on a piece of plank wood or something. Other than that, the room is clean and quite spacious. The hotel is conveniently located near to metro station and within walking distance to tourist attractions such as The Bund and Yuyuan for shopping and sightseeing. Need to go down to lobby for wifi access. I would stay at other hotels if I ever visit Shanghai again.

The rooms were amazing, the view of the Bund was spectacular, breakfast was delicious...they offered a wide variety, but the staff was hit or miss on service. Mainly it was due to the lack of English speaking employees. I had dinner one night at the restuaurant, and it was really good, I had the bbq platter (goose, duck, pork, and chicken). Wifi was only available in the lobby, but each room had access to LAN.

This hotel is a great example of a chinese hotel. Good service, the price is very nice compared to back home in Canada.
They serve a western style breakfast which comes included in the hotel price.
Across the road is a cool area for shopping packed with tourists, a very nice garden area. Walking distance to the boardwalk that runs along the River Bund.

Whenever i am in Shanghai i stay at this hotel.
The front desk staff can speak English, so be very nice to them, as you will have many questions i am sure..haha

Room Tip: I like to get a suite, bigger rooms make a longer stay more enjoyable.

Excellent hotel near the Bund and Yuyuan Garden. From the lobby in the night it is possible to watch the great spectacle of lights from skyscrapers.
The breakfast is abundant and very good. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. Recommended.
