5 minutes walk from metro station, cheap price may be suitable for budget travelers. There was wifi in room. However, the frustrating shower, poor hygiene and bad staff attitude would definitely ruin your trip. The toilets did not flush very well.The shower was too weak, and very difficult to tune water temperature because it was either too hot or too... More

After some messing around with a booking at another hotel we were guided to the Lakeside Holiday Inn. The location is good with The Bund and Nanjing Road within easy walking distance, but the corridors could do with a good clean. The corridor carpet on the third floor was filthy and had a musty smell. The rooms were clean and... More

Located right next to the motorway and beside an underpass, this has no lakeside view at all, although it is next to some water way. We suspect our floor was recently renovated so our floor had a thin layer of dust and a view of neighbouring buildings. Breakfast was very local Chinese- thin water congee with pickles, pumpkin, soya sauce... More

we stay only for one night at this hotel, and everything is standard. Nothing special and nothing worst. Located only for 3 block from Nanjing shoping area, about 10-15 minutes walking from exit Metro station at Henderson Mall. Not to hard to find this place, just follow the direction and you'll be found easily. They are located just front of... More

Where do I start - there is no English traveler information such as Metro maps or tours. The reception staff speak very little English. The Internet pc is in Chinese and I couldn't work out the control panel menu to find the correct panel to change the language. Of my six day stay I had maybe three days of hot... More

We were shocked to see how dirty the bathroom was, especially the shower stall, it had lots of hair, grime, tiles seemed to have never been cleaned. (Changed room once, we were given a bigger room, but condition was about the same.) Same condition around sink faucets. Dirt and dust everywhere else. Shower didn't work properly, with no consistency in... More

At $25 a room (we booked through Hotels.com), you cannot beat this hotel for its location. Only 5 minutes walk and you're at the Nanjing East metro station on Nanjing Road. But don't expect too much at that price. The hotel's common areas need a bit of Pledge and some elbow grease - you can write your name in the... More
