Frankly, if our company had not chosen this place we would have moved elsewhere in Shanghai. The rooms are musty and dated. Carpets need a deep clean. Breakfast is okay but the investment in amenities is lacking. The towels we received in our room were frayed and old.

There is plenty of hotels In Shanghai so so not choose this one! My husband and I stayed there for 5 days. The room is big enough but not clean at all.

You get what you pay for. We stayed during Summer and the Air conditioning struggled. Area is ok with nearby transport. No fridge in rooms. Nearby takeaways. Beds were comfortable. I would find somewhere different next time.

For the price the hotel was fine and I imagine it's handy for some as it's near both the bus and train stations.

We got a very high floor room. The room smells a bit at the beginning but after a few hours after the air con was on, it was fine. Breakfast was included in our room rate, there were plenty of buffet line with enough seats to accommodate the morning crowd.

Hotel is very big and very good. Rooms are nice and big. Its very near to the railway station and also Pudong airport is just 40 minutes drive during traffic hours.

I stayed here for June for 2 nights. The rooms are basic.. Could do with renovation.. A bit 'rough around the edges' with marks on walls, mould on shower curtains.. Marks to bedside tables. The location is fine if you don't mind walking a little to the metro(about 10-15 minute walk). The staff are fine, polite but not overly helpful.... More

Staff speaks good english, convenient eateries, shops, bus and train stations. Bathroom is clean and so are the rooms. Not your average US holiday inn however not a swanky one either, just a convenient clean place for a couple of nights stopover.
