Stayed in City Hotel Shanghai for one night. Location is very good, though Metro a bit far away. Service during check-in/check-out good. Executive rooms are very good, but the Executive lounge is a joke, not worth spending the extra money. Decor in hotel is a bit dated. Breakfast was kinda poor, as there were not enough tables avaliable and had... More

We stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights whilst visiting Shanghai. The location of the hotel was great and not too far from the subway. We could walk from the hotel to the subway in about 15 mins. There are lots of restaurants and places to buy food from small corner stores. The breakfast at the hotel was... More

Due to my train being late, I had to check in around 2am, and was able to do so with no problem. Because I was so late in I asked about a late check out and they had no problem allowing me to check out at 2pm, which was perfect for me. The bed was hard but reasonably for Chinese.... More

Good price and quite convenient. Though need to walk a bit to Shaanxi South Road station. However along the way there are quite a number of cafes. Hotel is a bit old. Stayed in Deluxe room. Room size was acceptable. Breakfast buffet was still not too bad. The biggest problem we faced was the hair dryer - very old and... More

Good price, good location. Close to eateries and the bus stop. Subway station is a couple blocks down. The room is average, needs updating, at least some repair. Nothing crazy just worn out. The breakfast was good, plenty to choose from. They will make you custom omlete. The front desk was very helpful and spoke English. Felt safe around the... More

Rooms: The rooms are simple, not recently updated. The first room we had was on a smoking floor, the next room smelled of mildew, and finally we ended up in a decent room. The air conditioning is not very strong, so all rooms feel a bit damp. They did not have a full bed available, so my wife and I... More

First time staying at this hotel but not the area. Firstly this area is pretty safe with lots of people around. There are many places to eat, several main roads with lots of shops and metro stations near by. The hotel is fairly average based on others in the area, but I did get a good price on line. The...

The hotel was very basic, but nice. A large, quiet room with great black out curtains. The hotel overall was very quiet. The breakfast was decent. It was a close walk to shopping and restaurants. The staff were helpful. My only advice is to avoid the spa that is connected to it. It smelled terribly of old smoke, and they... More

Staff is NOT service minded or helpful. Specially in restaurant and in business center. Breakfast buffet was disaster, all the time something was missing and staff did not react. Rooms are boring and old style. Also the location is not that good.

We stayed here for a week. The hotel is basic, actually a bit dated and has a faint smell of 90s. The standard was nothing like what was shown on the web picture. So we upgraded and it was ok. The bed is rock hard, i could feel the wire of the spring on my back. We tried to ask... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
