When considering whether to stay here, I had some concerns. 1) Would the hotel, way off in China, recognize my prepaid reservation through hotels.com? 2) Would the room be a tiny, uncomfortable cell? 3) Would the bathroom be down the hall and shared? 4) Would there be air conditioning?
Other reviews made me worry that staff spoke no English and the bed would be a wooden board. Well I should not have worried. I loved this place. Staff spoke English and my reservation popped right up. (They did take a credit card impression as a deposit, which was voided on checkout)
The room was fantastic: huge king bed, not hard at all. (Whoever complains about hard beds must sleep on a water bed at home. I found it comfortable.) Huge (personal) bathroom with a nice shower. Air conditioning worked great. After a long day of walking around Shanghai and sweating, this place was a paradise.
Wifi worked great. There was a computer already in the room; not sure if all rooms have them. Minor issue: the window looked out at a wall. No view. In the hallway hung some nice art. Elevator slow, but never a long wait. Long line at checkout if you try to do that at 9 am. I asked for 12 p.m. checkout, which they granted easily, and had no line.
I did not eat at the restaurant, but didn't like what I saw on the menu for breakfast. (I walked down the street a bit and found vendors cooking some good scallion pancakes with eggs.) Note: Hotel is off the street. You have to walk down an alley to reach the building. Not a problem though.
