Shanghai is a huge city & it is very important for the visitor to choose the area or location beforehand so suit ones needs.
For those who want to be close to the BUND & to enjoy leisurely walks , East Nanjing pedestrian street and also looking for a feel of History will appreciate this hotel.
Our room on the 5th Floor, itself was huge ( almost double in size to other hotels), very clean & the beds very very comfortable. The bathroom too was big with a separate tub & shower area. All in all a very lovely room with hints of luxury and good for the total price of approx 550 RMB we paid but without breakfast.
The hotel is located in a quiet area just yards off the bund and the moment you walk on to the bridge & towards the Bund one is taken aback by the view. The walk on the Bund area which is the picture post card of the city and then on wards on to east Nanjing pedestrian street is a must do for any visitor to Shanghai and by that requirement the location of the hotel is very good.
The hotel itself is said to be built in 1846 AD (?) all with wooden flooring etc & the property is dotted with old photos which give you a feel of history & also what the bund looked like then.
The CON is that the closest metro station of East Nanjing is about a kilometer away & therefore for those wanting to use the metro frequently or majorly do shopping or are physically challenged it may be better stay elsewhere. Also one also has to climb 7/8 stairs to get to the lift from the lobby area.
