I stayed at this hotel with my wife and 14 year old son before and after taking a cruise in July 2012. The hotel is just outside the central area of Shanghai, but is two minutes’ walk from the Hailun Road metro station, which gives easy (and cheap) access to all the downtown locations while keeping the hotel price very reasonable.
The hotel is modern and clean, with a large airy lobby. The rooms are a good size, with good facilities and the bathroom had both shower and bathtub, all nicely designed and fitted. The room was spotless and serviced regularly, with clean towels, toiletries and tea/coffee. Wireless internet was available free.
We booked an executive room, which gave access to the excellent club lounge, where a good breakfast buffet and evening snacks and drinks are available on a complimentary basis.
The feature that really made a difference was the service and friendliness of the staff in the club lounge. In particular, Nitin and Paul spent some time talking to us about our plans, and gave helpful advice and really made us welcome, but all the staff there were very friendly and attentive.
I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Shanghai, and would definitely stay there again.
