“Excellent value”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I am at this hotel right now and echo previous reviews on very good value for money. I had the windowless room for £GBP 10 a night. Room is perfect for single person with not too much stuff. For two ppl recommend bigger room. Whilst it is near the metro there are too many changes to get to the attractions- Bund etc. the interchanges take too long! It's easier to get the taxi and doesn't cost very much more.

Staff are excellent, shop is 24 hours and well stocked. You get towels, free wifi. There are sockets fitting an assortment of plugs. Clothes Washing facilities, hair dryer (pay deposit). Kettle. No safe, fridge or TV. Beds and pillows are good.

Really happy. The floor could be cleaner but its only £10!

Returned to this hotel in July after stay in April to stay late night until early morning while waiting my train from Shanghai to Hangzhou. Clean room, comfortable bed, private hot-water shower and toilet, airconditioner. Here is still no breakfast, but convenient store offer some snacks.
Taxi from People's Square to hotel at midnight was 20 CNY only. During the day you can take a metro at Dabaishu station.
Like this hotel again. Will stay here more and more when in Shaghai. Deffinitely can recommend it for these who like comfirtable stay with cheap price. Probably, it's one and only such a hotel in the world, which offer such a good comfort for such a small money.

Room Tip: Choose interrioe (without window) room, if you need to stay overnight only. At night you no need win...

Spend here 4 nights in April 2012. I like this hotel so much, because for 10-15 dollars you get brandnew room with perfect bed and clean linen, in-suite toilet, shower cabine. All very clean and new. Standard room with no windowsm but for a little extra you can get bright room with window. Here is no breakfast at all and no cafe in this buildibg. But, again, for 10 dollars per room per night its Ok. Every room have free and hight-speed wi-fi. Ask receptionist for password. At every floor disiled water distributor available with cold and hot water. Every room, even standard have airconditioner. Here is a convenient store with some snacks, toiletries, and drinks. Here is nice lobby area with chairs and tables. Security officer present in the lobby 24h.
Actually, Chinese Security Service office is oposit this hotel, so this area is very secure all the day. Few fruits shops bearby, abd few stores with food and drinks works 24h at next street.
Metro station Dabaishu in about 800 m by walking around office quarter oposit this hotel. Check with maps before arrival.
Finalyn this hotel is very nice and good quality accommodation for these who on budget. High standards implemented by owner - Star Cruises.
