This hotel very near to the metro station line 1. The area was very near to Nanjing walking street where you can walk and shopping there. And this area was neighborhood. Overall the service is great but noise level can't be avoided as their building renovate now. You will be shock someone outside your window chitchat because they were painting...

Breakfast very disappointing, little choice of western food and everything stone cold. Requested hotel book taxi to airport day prior to leaving which arrived ok however on getting into airport discovered they had...

I was really disappointed with this hotel. Housekeeping doesn't do a great job. We moved the chair in the room to find ripped up paper and a penny underneath; so use the slippers provided! Wifi is very slow. I'm really surprised at how high this hotel ranks. It doesn't deserve it.

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.

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...

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...
