This is my second time at this hotel, the first was three years ago and it has definitely deteriorated. The carpets in my room very stained and even very dirty to say the least, you would not dare walk barefoot on them! The breakfast is definitely not the bargain of the month and is extremely limited. The only good thing... More

good location (Metro line 2 taking to airport within 5-10 minutes walking distance), very comfortable rooms, nice and friendly staff ; I needed to prolong my stay and I have highly appreciated the suggestion of the front desk personal to do it online as the cost was significantly lower (I booked all on C-trip). It's definitely worth it to spend... More

First of all, this is NOT a 4 stars hotel. It is 2-3 stars, at the very best. Second, I didn't know that one can book no-window room in a 4 stars hotel on hotels.com, I think hotels.com should certainly stop selling this on their website. The price wasn't cheap by Shanghai's standard and I was made to pay an... More

I'm usually the type of person who doesn't say anything if I don't have anything good to say. However, this needs to be said to help future travelers. Beware of this hotel! It's insanely outdated, the room decor is old, stained rugs, stained chairs, bathroom is tinier than any bathroom I've ever saw. The sink practically reaches the shower from... More

I booked via Booking.com and was offered the same price for all rooms! I picked a suite with riverside view. Check in was very easy and the glass lift was excellent. Awesome views especially at night. Our suite was 14th floor and I can recommend that. The decor was a bit old and shabby but the staff were very helpful... More

I didn't mind the less than perfect rug and the few stains of my toilet floor because of the superb location of the hotel. It was close to Bund, Nanjing Street market, metro stations, ferry point and host of local restaurants and international chains like McDonald, KFC and Subway. I can't forget the morning walk up to Bund followed by... More

I stayed at a very beautiful 1 bedroom apartment with views, but only because I demanded and paid for the views. Some rooms were facing brick walls. Service was unfriendly. Food very ordinary. Close proximity to Bund, Yuan Gardens, City and Xintianti. Easy access to underground trains and restaurants.No much street lighting at night time in this surroundings.

Renovations were underway and the walls, furniture and facade clearly needed some attention but all of the seemingly visible flaws of this hotel made the stay here that much more pleasant. It had a certain genuineness to it. The food was great, location suited our purposes and the staff was friendly. The WiFi didn't work for us but channel surfing... More

Note the fine print in your booking that adds a 15% service charge. We totally missed this. They also request to pay a deposit of 2,500 yuan for a double room!! We instead gave our credit cards as we would have had to convert more dollars into Yuan simply to pay this absurd deposit. Hotel is good, clean - and... More
