The hotel is quite old, under renovation. The position is excellent just one block from west nanjing road and walking distance from west nanjing subway station. Use to have a budget price. The room is a bit dated but is clean without smoke smell.

Sure the hotel is run down... if you don't speak Chinese it will be frustrating... 1/2 the elevators never work... fixtures in the room are either missing or falling apart...however; what do you expect for less than $100 USD per night and you still get the basic toiletries and kitchenette...plus you are living within steps of a 6 star neighborhood...

Agree with the many reviewers – this hotel claims 4 stars but it’s practically just 3 by international standards. See it that way, then everything makes sense. Right, the ventilation was not good. The air was stale but not unbearable. True that cleanliness of the room was less than perfect but overall acceptable. I stayed in a “suite” with a... More

Except the location, I cannot find any good reason to stay in this hotel. The hotel is extremely poorly managed and I would not recommend to anyone nor come back myself (even for the good location sake). It is NOT a 4/5 star as it claims - it is max 2/3 star in Chinese (not international) standard. If you plan... More

This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in our entire life It used to be okay 2 years ago....but the hotel has become so run-down and dirty now. Upon opening the door, the odor is stale and unbearable. It felt dirty already. There were nuts/debris on the floor inside a supposedly clean room when we arrived. We changed... More

This a China rated 4 star, so that means at most 3 star in western ratings. However, this is great value hotel for this area of Shanghai £50 a night, you cant fall off. It's a little dated inside but the rooms are a good size and clean. Stayed here 5 or 6 times over the last few years, my... More

Visited this location in the spring of 2013 and found it less than stellar. Stayed here again on a recent trip and things had not changed much. The staff is friendly and the location is great. The rooms need significant changes and the carpets are filthy in all the rooms and the hallways. The beds are hard as a rock.... More

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.
