“Crawling with cockroaches and stinking worse than a sewer!,”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

A disaster after such a wondeful trip. We were three families with children and we had booked three apartments. One with "superior river view" and two were superior rooms. We were on a 17 day trip of Japan and China. Shanghai was our last leg before returning to Australia. All our hotel stays on the trip was simply great until we came to Shanghai. This place was a shocker, the apartments were hard to find as it is behind another set of dirty apartments. We had to go to a room at level 12 to collect the keys .This room at level is an indication of things to come. The less said the better about this " check in" place. The corridors of each level are filthy. Two of our apartments were on one level and the third on a different level. Except for one room the other two was not ready even though we checked in at 4.00 p.m. The room which was ready had a putrid smell. I had to run away to throw up. When the other apartments were ready, one did not have heating or hot water. In the other one the shower head fell when we turned the tape. The suposedly cleaned rooms were filthy. There was dirt and hair every where. The place is crawling with cockroaches. One family in our group asked for a different apartment and we we're told no other apartment was available till the next day, so my friends went and stayed at the Broadway Mansion hotel across the street. I am about to ring Agoda.com to see whether we can get a refund for this room. We, the other two families perserved because we were too tired and also we were not sure whether we will ever get refunds if we walked out. However this persverance bought us more misery as everyday was a turn for the worse . I can keep going on and on about our problems but I rather conserve my energy and go for some meditation. But to everyone out there I say this please avoid this place, this is the best advice you will ever get from a stranger. Avoid, avoid and avoid at all cost.

We booked a family room which has reasonable space for a family of four, a very good value of money for the travel budget. Room was clean but not luxury. The location was very quite good with a few minutes to the Bund. We loved the small kitchen and washer. The old town attractions are within 5 minutes drive. Try this inspiring serviced apartment !

The apartments are very spacious, have a beautiful view over a part of the bund, you get clean towels every day, little kitchen with not a lot of stuff, very fast wifi and a good bed! There is no swimmingpool available at the moment. They told us it's open next year. During the night you need to enter through the hotel entrance.

WE loved our apartment right next to a local food street with many delicious things to eat. We could walk to the subway line 10, which was a clean and modern station. The building did have old carpet and occasional musty smell, but the apartment was very nice and the view was wonderful. We had one with a sleeping loft and it was great. The windows were a bit dirty, though. Shanghai was thrilling for us!
