Reviewed October 27, 2013

This hotel is fantastic and located in a very good place. It is just a three minute walk to nanjing pedestrian road. The rooms are really nice as are the amenities. The breakfast buffet is very good as well. A little on the pricey side but there are deals.

I stayed here with family earlier this year and quite liked it. It is centrally located to downtown restaurants and shops. The rooms were spacious and the lobby was also very impressive. There is a good view from the rooms of the city.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful rooms, large soaker bathtubs in standard rooms, comfortable beds. The food here was average, good, not exceptional. There is a beautiful park across the street for relaxing or going for a walk. Very picturesque

Usually stay at another hotel when in Shanghai but decided to give this a try. Well worth it. Location is good and only a short metro ride from airport. Front desk staff spoke excellent English; rooms very clean and beds were comfortable. Did not have any issue with wifi in the room. Had a drink in the bar on the 2nd floor along with an excellent hamburger, however prices were high. Starbucks located on the premises.
One street over from pedestrian street and from our room we had an excellent view of pedestrian street. Fitness centre and sauna were great and very clean.
Will stay again

Room Tip: ask for a room higher up overlooking pedestrian street for a good view of the city lights at night.

Great location near the Bund, but most taxi drivers don't know it so get a card from front desk or a staff member to write the name in Chinese to show them. Can't fault the breakfast buffet and staff were helpful. Internet was troublesome and slow.

Stayed for business and did not stay too much in the hotel. Breakfast very good, service very attentive with decent English and even smiles. Location is everything and shopping is just around the corner. But now I understand, why so many Chinese like to shop overseas.

Internet was not that great, In the evenings it may get a little difficult to get a taxi and some of the bell staff could show a little more effort to help with this request. Some "funny" guys in front of the hotel, asking for some "wild" services, which is a little bad for this nice hotel.

Overall a very good stay. Safe, clean, functional.

Really liked this place! Just next to the fancy Nanjing road. Nice personel and very good breakfast. A little bit to much airconditioning in the lobby, but the rest ist just perfect. Clean rooms and good beds. Big room with fast internet....
