“Decent place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

usual story : acme residence/service apartments had to hv been very nice when hit the market after completion. Then due a mixture of poor care and extra average materials (furniture + tiles in the bathroom+kitchen and especially in the entrance hall), it seems to be there since 30 years.........i spent there 20 days. Service was good + staff gentle. Room was clean. the airmchairs were stained....room was spacious
breakfast (terrible) not to be consumed apart from the yougurt which is sealed.
15 mins walking to lujiazui, 2 mins walking to subway station. "interesting" pubs/clubs opposite the gate.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2011

The service staff of this serviced apartment is the only bright part of this stay. The Front Desk Manager (James) and the staff who attended to me immediately when I had problems with my room - these were the only highlights of my stay.

The breakfast is horrible, unless you like cold fried eggs and cold yangzhou fried rice with green vegetables turning yellow.

The place is so old and run down that I had to restart the water heater each time I turned OFF the water after a shower. The fuse blew when I had the A/C, the TV, the Water Heater and a hot water boiler on at the same time. Isn't this what you're supposed to be able to do in most places?? The bed is so old that it creaks every time you turn in bed. The A/C is so dirty that the room seems like it is fogged up with smog when you turn it on.

I don't recommend any business travelers to stay at this place, unless you want a close taxi ride to Lujiazui Road.

Room Tip: try the Eton Hotel instead!?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2010

Just came back from Shanghai. Stayed at this hotel for 3 days. I had 2 rooms apartment and it was very good. Large living room and nice bedroom. Everything was clean. The only one minus is that they don't have a restaurant. You should order your breakfast before 1 am and they will bring it to your apartment. And choice was not very good... Boiled or fried eggs, bread, jam, coffee or milk, yoghurt, watermelon or melon and some chinese food i could not eat at all. But there are many different cafes outside so you can have your breakfast somewhere else.
