Myself and my wife stayed at Dongding Hotel 2 times in April - May 2013, 5 nights in total. Of course, this is a not 4 star hotel. 2,5 or 3 stars, no more. But you must understand that "stars" in Europe and "stars" in Asia are very different things ))

- Location is good, about 700 meters from Xizang Road South metro station, exit 1, Line 8 - just 4 stops to People's Square.You can get in minutes to everywhere.
- Big room, en-suite facilities.
- Staff is very friendly - but no English ))

- Don't expect English in the hotel, even at the reception - no maps, no advices, no understanding. If you are limited in time, do everything in advance, especially check out. Nobody understands what you say.
- 200 yuan deposit in cash only, refundable.
- Our room was non-smoking, but when we checked in, we had strong smell of tobaco in the room. This is wide-spread in China.
- We had problems with water in the toilet. More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two days during a short stay in shanghai. I would say it was a pleasant stay.

Don't expect it to be glamourous, actually on the outside it isn't much of a looker, slightly tired with s very local feel. The reception gave decent service - as in they were somewhat useful, although if you asked them to make external calls, they will claim their phone can only call within the hotel.

The room was surprisingly big, definitely a lot nicer than their common areas. It was nicely decorated and clean, although don't expect much of a view.

The location of this hotel is alright. You won't be able to walk to any of the tourist attractions but it isn't too far away from the subway, and catching a cab isn't hard.

If you don't mind it being slightly far away from the attractions, but a good value place to stay, than Dongding does the trick.
