A great place to start a trip to China. Wonderful location, right in the heart of authentic Shanghai with not a shopping mall in sight, nor many annoying tourists.
Amenities were efficient and unintimidating to Westerners, though the shower was up to no good.
Great restaurant across the road: do try the BBQ pigeon, and the jellyfish is a must. Stay away from the hand held devices or the steamed halogen tongue.
Staff were friendly, though a little concerned about the violent bank robber whose most wanted poster leered menacingly at reception. The air con worked well too, and the water was warm.
