I got off the train in Shanghai without a hotel reservation, but was planning to pop into a cafe to check the internet for a hotel when a nice old lady offered to find me a room.

Well, I ended up with this hotel.

The walls look like they are covered with grime, footprints, and dried fluids of unknown origin. The carpet smells like carpet shampoo or Chinese white liquor. I have yet to shower.

When I called to ask for another room, I was told they are all like that.

Impossible to get a refund, because I paid the "nice" old lady at the train station rather than the hotel itself.

2 lessons learned; never return to this hotel and don't use hotels offered at the train station.

2. Good cheap food nearby the hotel area. For Muslims, there's even a Chinese Muslim restaurant (halal) that serves great beef noodle (10 yuan) & other noodle & rice dishes just opposite the main entrance of the hotel.

3. Most of the front service staff speak english. They even help you write the chinese character from english translation (for easy navigation because most Shanghainese don't understand english).

4. Rooms are clean though a little bit dusty. Beddings & towels are changed everyday. Toilet is clean.


Bad:
1. The street (alley) going to the hotel is not that pleasant. (But it's just a few walks before you find...
