Booked Suite. Place seems quiet, in the middle of nowhere really. Suites are spacious and quite cheap too. Rooms are modern, clean and equipped with all what you need if you have couple of days to waste. It is difficult for me to appraise Chinese food - I have no point of reference you see. Western grub is luckily also...

Stayed here for one night. It's about 15 minutes from the metro which is an easy walk. The location of the hotel is fine and the area seems safe but there is a security guard at the door of the hotel 24/7 anyway. Room is great though the higher floors have a much better view (the hotel has 23 floors)....

The interior of this hotel is great. The rooms are very clean and quiet. The breakfast buffet is very nice, very eclectic. The issue, as others have stated before, is the location. Taxiing into the city will run you over $30 USD one way, and taking the subway is maybe 60 minutes+ to the city centre (including walking time to...

This hotel was well appointed but relatively far from downtown. The room was very comfortable and very clean. At $60 + tax a night (booked on Agoda) it was good value for money. Breakfast was good but the coffee shop nothing special.

This is a well used hotel, because lots of tour groups use this hotel. That does not mean the front desk service was good. But I do appreciate the lady that cleaned our room walked an extra mile to help me fix my shoe, and didn’t look for any tips. Location of the hotel is in a residential area. It...

Nice hotel, kind staff. Breakfast could be much better. Really far away from downtown Shanghai, there was a mistake with the reservation and my company booked this hotel instead than the howard johnson in downtown shanghai. You need at least one hour by metro to reach the financial district, and you need a taxi to reach the closest metro station....

Our group stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a 7 days China tour. Non of the air conditioners in our rooms were working. The temperature inside the rooms were 27 to 29'C, very uncomfortable. Request to non smoking room and deodorizing the smoking odor were not honored. The bed sheets have holes on it. There was...

Room #2109: The bathroom has opaque glass for one wall that turns clear when electricity is on, but it didn't work. Anyone using the bathroom can be seen by others in the bedroom. Contacted the front desk and showed the problem to a housekeeper, still took 2 hours before we got another room. Avoid it. Room #2108: My father got...
