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

Lobby area is very grand and modern. Hotel stuff is quite nice. There is a family mart right across the street great for grabbing essentials. It was about a 10 minute walk to the rail station/subway. It is a little hidden from Main Street's but not too big of a problem. Our room was on the 14th floor. The common... More

Non descript hotel with spacious and clean room. Location was a little off but it was expected given that the room rate is slightly lower than those closer to the train stations. It is a 30-min walk to Tianzhi Fang. There is a convenience store just across the road and not a lot of food & beverage options around the... More

This was a very standard hotel, and I would recommend it to those who are going to be out and about all day and just want a comfy bed to sleep in at the end of a long day. The hotel location is great, with convenient stores and restaurants right across the street (and a beautiful mansion!). Downtown is also... 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.
