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

the hotel is well located in the center, with the subway station to/from the Pudong Airport being about 15 minutes away, good views, very rich and varied breakfast, helpful staff at the counter, free umbrellas on a rainy day, close to the Nanjing Street with shops and restaurants

I wasn't impressed with this hotel. The room was adequate at best. There is no free wifi available, you have to pay for it. The front desk were not particularly friendly or helpful. Overall there is a lot of room for improvement and I would suggest using a different hotel.

The room was clean, calm and big. Guests in this hotel were mainly chinese and if you like a good chinese breakfast, this is a place I can recommend The breakfast buffet also included a good choice for everybody. The standard was good for what we paid for. We would come again.

I chose this hotel because it was just 5 minutes walking from Exhibition Center in Yan’An road. The room I stayed was very old and need a deep clean and fix drawers which was almost falling apart. I wouldn’t mind all this if at least the staff service were good which unfortunately the word “service” don’t even apply.The English speaking... More

Be aware when you book a regular room, they charge you extra for the gym, the pool and even the Internet! Very old fashioned. Rooms are a bit smelly due to the carpet on the floor. And breakfast is really insufficient! Location is okay and beds are soft, but I will go elsewhere next time.

I have stayed here a number of times. The place is on Shanxi road. Near Nanjing road, Jing'an Temple and Xindianti. The place is central with easy access to most places. I have stayed here 4 times in the past 6 yrs and not once the stay has been disappointing. However I should also mention that there is nothing new... 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.
