“It's okay if you're only looking for a bed to sleep in”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2011

Not a nice hotel, cheap quality, it's okay if you're only need a bed for a night or 2.
Free internet in room but very slow(not wireless), convenient stores around, right above a subway station(line 8), 5 min walk to Starbucks.

We went here for business with an official delegation.
Location is rather convenient, near lines 3 & 8.
Breakfast is OK.
The rooms aren't very clean (the floor) but beds are top.
It is impossible to enlightened the room properly !
Internet connexion is also bad, and the staff cannot deliver messages or communicate in english : no maps of the town, no maps of the underground...

The one good thing about this hotel is that it is situated directly above Exit no.2 of Hongkou Football Stadium station of Line 8. You're within 4 stops of People's Square, the central area of Shanghai. Breakfast is actually pretty good and is included every morning. The free wired internet is also a bonus. However, you need to watch how you use the toilet paper since it can run out before the end of the day. I did notice a few cockroaches roaming around though not many. The use of English is very limited at this hotel as well. With regards to the Fitness room, it's pretty shabby and open only 2 hrs in the morning and 2 in the evening. This is more like a 3 star hotel then a 4 star. However, what we paid was a great deal compared to other hotels. It is also near the Sichan shopping district. Currently, there is construction of a hotel and mall across the street so you may hear construction throughout the day. I would recommend it if you get a great deal on this hotel. (under $100 incl tx)

This hotel has seen better days. Its far from the center, a bit sketchy at night and it is not the cleanest. No wireless near, breakfast included but tough to find some decent western options. It is attached to a subway which makes things convenient but attracts interesting people at night. In shanghai you can do better.

+ pretty cheap for a 4*
+ nice view from the room, especially at night (stadium looks very cool)
+ underground station (Hongkou Football Stadium) is just across the corner
+ nice breakfast

- far from center (4-5 stops by underground or 20 minutes cab ride)
- small rooms, small bathroom
- they charge for wi-fi
