“Convenient & comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2007

Stayed in their 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment on the 16th floor. Very convenient location (near the road tunnel that cars use to get accross to Pudong), 10 mins from Nanjing East Road, 15 mins from People's Square, 15 mins to the Bund, 15 mins to the Yu Yuan Gardens.
First day, it was a little dusty but once we settled, everything looked ok. Only issues we had were that the heater was not working too well (too hot or too cold randomly, probably the heating system is old) & that the breakfast was too continental, too much eggs ... unless one opts for the local version which is pretty bland when it is compared to most dishes in Shanghai.
A little bit of walk to the nearest Metro (Henan Rd) but definately a colourful place to stay. Definately for holiday makers looking for the local taste of things. If you are expecting 5 star service, location and amneties, then, this would not be the place for you. For their rates, definately good value.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2006

I am an expat living an hour and a half away from Shanghai and when my parents came to visit they wanted to stay in Shanghai for a few days.

This hotel looked absolutely beautiful on the website - and maybe some of the rooms are like that, but the one my parents stayed in was definitely not. It was all nasty, cheap wood furniture, a tiny little room. It did have a kitchenette, but with nothing in it! It looked directly out on a construction zone where work started at 6 am and went until about 10pm at night.

If I could use one word to describe it, it would be CHEAP. I am mostly disgruntled because the rooms on the website looked so nice, but were not that way in reality. Would not recommend at all.
