Quite good hotel, however relatively expensive measured against provided overall quality. No bigger complains however the detail count and for average 150€ per night w/o breakfast the interior of the room has to be w/o scratches on leather or any quick fix repair. The hotel is actually still a good choice offering a great breakfast, quick and friendly service, a...

Hotel location is very good, quite convenience, close to MRT and several shopping centers. However, as an international 5 stars hotel, the staffs only provide very basic service. I did not see any smiling at all when check in/out at front desk and leave my luggage at concierge.

Took 40 minutes to check in at 1130PM ! IN the Cafe I sat for 7 minutes and no service so left and went to KABB across the street for food the next day. Overall nice hotel and rooms, good location - nonexistent customer attitude by staff who are totally focused on anything but a customer.

I was here on business with colleagues. The room was clean and comfortable (remember to ask for a non-smoking room if you want one). The service was good and the language barrier that so often presents itself here was not too bad. The Pool and sauna facilities were very good and very welcome. The nearby Jing'an temple is well worth...

As mentioned, hotel is OK. Room is clean. Location is also OK, practical to go to the French concession. However, I'm writing this feedback because the taxi driver tried to scam me for the ride to the Airport. This taxi was waiting in front of the hotel and is probably well known by the concierge. To make things simple, the...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
