“Spacious rooms in a central location”
Reviewed August 2, 2010

We picked the Golden Tulip Ashar Suites after trying several other (cheaper) hotels that were fully booked.

We booked a Superior Suite because we wanted to have a refrigerator and free internet.
Our room was clean, comfortable and very spacious with a separate work area and bedroom. It even had a small kitchenette (microwave, hot plate and sink) but without any utensils/cookware.

Bathroom was clean. The drain in the sink was somewhat clogged.

After approaching the front desk to check in we were sent up to check in at the executive floor, which was nice. When it was time to check out however, we were asked to checkout at the front desk where the line was long and the process was agonizingly slow and disorganized, especially since we were in a bit of a rush to catch a train.

Overall it is hard to beat the location of this hotel right in the middle of the plush shopping district, restaurants, theater and near main subway lines.

We didn't try the breakfast (extra charge) but opted for the Starbucks that is attached to the building instead.

Beyond our expectations! We were travelling on a budget and the price of this hotel fit perfectly for us. We were so surprised when we first walked into the rooms (there is always that anticipation and worry of "Is the hotel nice or not"), pictures can be deceiving, but this hotel was awesome.

Great views of Shanghai, everything was modern, the bathroom was huge, we even had a mini kitchen area. It's also in a popular shopping district, you can immediately go shopping the minute you step outside. So fantastic for our first Shanghai experience!

Only negatives: The beds were like stone! A common thing in Asian hotels but these were particularly rock hard and very difficult to sleep on. We still managed sleep just fine and would definitely stay again, despite the hard beds. (Oh and no tub, which was kinda sad).

At around 550 RMB for a night at this location I don't complain much. Just 2 things I'd like to mention: 1) the windows are awful as they let in the street noise (15th floor and I heard every hoink of the cars on the road) as well as an uncomfortable airflow (though in a closed state). 2) there is no wifi and the use of cable-internet is 1RMB per minute. But the rooms are spacious and the showers are fine. The TV programs in English are limted to BBC and AXN.
But the location is very central and I did my free web-surfing at the nearby Element Fresh cafe (3-5 min by foot) which I can highly recommend.
