I was totally wowed by the brand! First of all, this hotel targets itself at 4 Stars - no extravaganza about the service, just real, practical and welcoming staff.
The lobby and room are chic and eclectic which you can never tell from merely the outside of the building. I could stay in the room for the whole day! It's cozy and comfy. The gym was just magnificent - running on the treadmill with a panoramic view of the other side of the Bund? You'd end up exercising your fore-arms and biceps from taking shots of the views. No jokes.
Location wise is good and bad. Good: it's on the Bund - one of the historical parts of Shanghai, great view to the financial district (the Oriental Pearl Tower); Bad: it's at the end of the Bund, which is not quite reachable by public transports other than taxis. The hotel is located right at the corner of the modern side and broken down side of Shanghai. My suggestions: grab a cab or just walk along the Bund!
I am officially in love with this hotel and the brand!
