There are quite a few local restaurants around this hotel, which makes it convenient for business people to eat after work and go back to hotel. There is also a nice cafe opposite the hotel which is pretty decent. It is also near the Bund, which is about 10-15 mins drive away. I don't really know the exact location of... More

The hotel were booked by our business partner as they held their dinner there. Meetings were conducted in their ballroom. We basically spent about 4 days in the hotel and glad to report that during the 4 days, room was properly kept and we were pretty much left to our own devices. We barely noticed the chambermaid etc, they either... More

The hotel was in a pretty good position,definitely 4 star. We started the day with a good western style buffet breakfast. The room had wi-fi, safe, a good size bathroom and a lovely comfortable bed. The only downside was that our room was next to the stairs where the night maintenance men were. We were often woken by music and... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the start of our tour, location is good in relation to city sights, rooms are well appointed and better than we were expecting, good western breakfast available. Drinks in the hotel bar are on the high side but cheaper than a bar just around the corner from the hotel reception. Mini market... More

Reception staff spoke no English and are a bit impatient with non-Chinese speaking guests to the point of arrogance. Was charged 2000 yuan deposit for the minibar which is excessive, considering the sparse contents. Breakfast is ok, a mix of Chinese and western. There is a currency exchange machine in the lobby, handy because the branch of the bank down... More

Very nice rooms and quite spacious. Good buffet breakfast. Had a little trouble as not many employees understood English very well but they tried! Location a ways from Bund but subway not too far away.

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
