It's very convenient for Tongji University and the Metro and you can get to a lot of useful places without changing lines. Room is quiet and well equipped, but the internet is excruciating slow; my China Unicom 3G phone was much faster, plus the connection kept dropping. Bed is very hard; if you find a quilt in the cupboard that... More

Room was quite spacious considering hotel rooms are generally small in Shanghai. Staff provided little service. In fact, after staying there for almost a whole week, my family and I were discussing in the hallway about our daily plans when one of the male staff approached us very rudely and questioned our reason for being there. We told him we... More

Breakfast is good and extensive. Not too expensive for Shanghai, but also not that cheap at the same time for what you get. The internet is extremely slow and the staff does not always understands English, which might be expected in a four star hotel. Staff is also walking around as if they are at a funeral sometimes. Rooms are... More

Beautiful locality located close to the tongji university metro station and Tongji School of Economics and Management, only drawback is the lack of communication regarding the wine placed in the room which people might confuse as part of free minibar usage but it is not as clear message is not given in the note that consumption of wine is chargeable....they...

Yes, it's not on the Bund, but it is extremely convenient if you are visiting or working at Tongji University. Just a few steps from the Shanghai Metro, you are just a few stops away from all the key locations in Shanghai without the expense. Although it may take 1-1/2 hours, it is only 7 RMB to ride the Metro... More

A very mid-tier hotel that is not going anywhere fast. Serves guests to Tongji and without the University might not make it. Rooms very basic and bed quite hard. Staff levels lower and tring to not make mistakes versus provide high quality service. Half the quests speak German. Breakfast is fine of ok quality - they do try. Lots of... More

This is a great hotel to stay in if you need to be near the University. I am posting this message because some of the previous messages said the internet connection was not very good. I had internet in room 916 and it worked fine. There was a blue internet cable in the desk that I could plug in, so... More

My wife and I just spent 3 weeks here while I worked at Tongji University. Compared to the other hotels bordering the campus, this one is by far the best. Wifi is slow, but better than at the competition. The staff are very helpful, the breakfast is fine (quite a bit of choice, but it does not vary) and the... More

This is a very nice hotel if you want to stay away from downtown and close to Tangji University. There is a subway station very close and it's easy to go around the city. Breakfast has a lot of options and there is always someone around speaking English. The problem is the internet connection at the rooms. I stayed at... More

It's a lovely place satisfying all basic needs. Not extremely far form central Shanghai, yet not in a downtown either. The rooms are large. And a little noisy. I struggled with sleep. The food was quite ok and stuff was lovely. Terrible wifi.
