Property is located adjacent to the Shanghai rail station and several metro lines, but, for better or worse, is quite a ways from the Bund or touristy areas. The area is marked by busy roads, lots of fast food restaurants but not much in the way of shopping or full service restaurants. Rates are moderate, probably given the location. Lobby is large and well lit, rooms reasonably sized and furnished, and housekeeping did a good job. Room had a tv, desk, safe, and minibar with complimentary tea and instant coffee. Bed was comfortable and bedroom lighting was good. Bathroom was a bit of a tight squeeze, but had a tub. The wall between the bathroom and bedroom was glass with imbedded venetian blinds, which wouldn't completely block light from the bathroom coming into the bedroom at night. Also, task lighting in the bathroom was terrible for shaving or applying makeup. The outside bedroom window was small; fortunately, there were inner- and outer-windows which did a good job in keeping out noise. Hallways had low ceilings and hard walls, so door noise from neighboring rooms would ricochet down the hall late at night. Breakfast buffet in third floor restaurant was very good with a wide variety of choices, including egg/omelet station. Xi's Garden restaurant on the second floor is probably one of the better restaurants in the area and is quite reasonably priced. All in all, the hotel is a good value.
