price for Deluxe room: USD $70 (around 450 RMB)
Location: In the middle of nowhere. surroundings are pretty dirty and underdeveloped. Nothing to do around the hotel. 8 minutes walk to subway, 50 RMB taxi to People's Square. When I stayed at the hotel (during Chinese New Year time) there were hardly any people at the hotel.
Service: adequate. Concierge looked like he hated his job, but was not rude. When you enter the hotel, the air freshener smells too strong. It kind of reminds me of the stuffy perfume of a old rich lady.
Room: clean, with a nice king sized bed and soft pillows. Bathroom had a shower and a bathtub that was separated. Bathtub is pretty small. It's hard to fit someone 180cm or above. I enjoyed the shower head, which was very large and comfortable. TV had a decent selection of both Chinese and English channels. Wifi was a bit slow. Took an hour to download a movie.
Pool: You need to bring your own swim cap, or you can buy one for 10 RMB. The attendant at the pool was very nice and helpful. Pool is a bit small, but the tiles lining the pool are a beautiful milky white that shines with light. Sauna room is small (there's 2 in the changing room of the pool). When I went to the hotel in the winter, the pool was heated to 28 degrees C, which was a bit too cold to lounge around. There was no jacuzzi.
Gym: Small gym, with a good view of the pool and of the outside. (gym and pool are on the 6th floor) They have all the machines you need. There's also a yoga room.
Spa: did not go to the spa. It was closed on the day of stay
Overall: Very good for the price. Would not recommend if first time in Shanghai traveling with limited time. Good for couples. Definitely a 4-star hotel.
