why not 5 green dots? My driver took ages to find..we drove round the block so many times I forgot.. put some larger signs up...I understand "rough LUX" design but this was taking it to the next level.. I have stayed at it's brother hotel in London last month and wanted to see what its owners had come up with in China.. Guys London is small, Shanghai is huge..
I was here for three days. Once past the intial "where is the hotel" I loved the industial chic and warehouse feel inside and not a health and safety sign in sight (what a joy). My room was resonable in size and the design-classic furniture was amazing.. (Where did the sofas come from? if only the staff knew).. Once settled the whole thing is surprisingly warm and comfotable.. the dance steps printed onto the floor are interesting after a few glasses of wine.
I dined in No.1 on two evenings and suggest Jason Atherton open the same concept in London, it would be packed.....I found myself talking to Shanghai fashionistas and design boffins with thick specs at the long refectory tables...
If you have a extra few pennies in your budget, spend it here, forget the big chains and just go for it, you will not be disapointed!! I will be back..
