Stayed at this hotel 5 days in early Dec 2012. We had prebooked including buffet breakfast. Upon arrival the front desk clerk did not speak any english. Began to charge more for the room than what we had already had confirmed previously. We argued and showed our confirmed reservation so she relented. The breakfast 'deal' we had ordered was 15 yuan per day for 2 people (7.50 each). This was a discount special for online booking. Instead she charged us 30 yuan per day for 1 breakfast ticket - only good for one person. The sign on the wall behind her stated the charge for buffet breakfast was 22 yuan! Hard to understand what exactly went on except to know for certain that we were overcharged for a not very good breakfast.
Also - no free internet is available in rooms. Only wifi is in lobby of this hotel alone. No wifi in rooms. The internet in lobby is for max time of 15 minutes!
As for location - it is not near the Oriental Pearl tower et cetera as stated in the advertising.
It is one block from the Dongming metro station. Easy to access downtown Shanghai in 20 - 25 minutes and about 1 hour from Shanghai Pudong airport by metro.
BEWARE! - the metro stops running at 22:57.
