We stayed here as part of a Peregrine tour. Location is ok, breakfast is awful, only a couple of staff speak English and communicating with them without our guide was very tricky. The rooms present fine but really need a good clean. I would recommend staying a little closer to the bund in a slightly higher standard if budget allows.

We stayed in a superior queen room here and the room was huge. Lovely big shower and bath, toiletries and fluffy towels. It is very close to shops and restaurants which is very convenient. There is also a small local convenience store opposite the hotel. Breakfast is nice and even some things for western people.

A prompt reception team to assist. vending machines for food and drinks in lobby besides an exchange ATM machine. Convenience Stores opposite to the Hotel and 5 mins walk to some good restaurants.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel. Our room was nice, spacious, had a mini fridge, complimentary water, and a great shower. Front desk spoke enough English for us Westerners to get by. Also, a very short walk to People's Square and Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street (shopping). Would definitely come back.

I stayed only 1 night at Kingtown. It's on the red line and within a quick metro ride to the city center. The location is good, however, don't expect any high-end shopping or restaurants within walking distance. While the room was quite small, it was reasonably clean. There was a lot of noise though especially at night. My room was... More

We arrived at our hotel and quickly got our room key, surprisingly the receptionist could speak good English and was friendly enough. As soon as we opened the door (Room 411) the smell of damp and mould hit us - the walls of the room were mouldy, flaking and badly repaired. The roof was cracked and mouldy and the entire... More

We're a couple from NZ who have been living in China for a couple of years. This place is great if you want a central location, quick walk to Subway station, short walk to Nanjing Road shopping/Bund areas. The breakfast was adequate - had bacon, eggs, plus Chinese dishes. It's a little hidden off the main road and we walked... More

I stayed here for a night, got a double room on the 3rd floor. The lifts were playing up, so ended up having to take the service staircase, which was covered in piles of dirty sheets, on arriving in the corridor to my room I had to pick my way through another huge pile of dirty sheets (this was at...
