Due to some miscommunication, I had to find a hotel for a day while in Shanghai. Using cellphone (baidu app), just pick this hotel since its near the place I needs to be and also had deal ($76 per night). I booked at 8am and check in around 10am. It's a one bed room, very clean and western style. It's... More

Stayed here for 2 days in a single room. It seems they have just 2 single rooms (so we were told) in each floor. When we reached the room, realised the reason...its a long narrow room that won't fit a double bed!! Anyways the room was comfortable with a nice desk. The room had a old world feel because of...

The hotel is clean, comfortable and near the shopping mall and restaurants. It serves both Chinese and western breakfast. Since the weather is cool at night, the room temperature is preset and I cannot turn the temperature down. It can be rather warm at night since I enjoy colder weather. I usually turned off the temperature control and open the... More

Spent two nights here when we first arrived in Shanghai and I found it comfortable, clean and quiet. The breakfast at the main floor restaurant was a buffet for breakfast that included western and asian dishes including omelettes and fried eggs. Fresh fruit was available but limited. WiFi was not very fast but I was able to communicate on FaceTime... More

Convenient hotel not too far from Jin An (about 20 mn walk, bus nearby but expect a lot of traffic in the morning), good front desk service. The hotel is a bit old but the room was okay and comfortable. It is a pity the carpet was not so clean. I had a good single bed, quite large in fact.... More

Nice location, good price within budget. Best thing about the hotel is its breakfast-- very nice spread and according to international taste. The hotel also has a moderately priced spa. The tau I drivers finds it difficult to locate, so please carry the address n name in Chinese as well.

Stayed there as part of a group of about a 100. Very helpful staff, especially the concierge when it came to ordering taxis. Breakfast was amazing, and the rooms were great. Do not use the laundry service if you can, it was efficient but very expensive!

We were here with a tour group. It was located in a busy part of the city, near a shopping mall and lots of restaurants. You are within walking distance of the river. The staff are gracious and helpful. The rooms are clean, but nothing special. The beds are hard box springs with no mattress. The restaurant downstairs where they... More

We were a big group. Nobody did complain about rooms. Check in was easy and fast, as well as check out. Breakfast was abundant and plenty of options. Room clean and with a nice view. I will stay again with no hesitation.

the rooms are large and clean and offer all amenities you need. the noise level from outside though was too high due to traffic and construction work (like almost everywhere in China). To get to the main attractions of Shanghai, just take the taxi to Jing´An Temple and take the metro.
