I paid over 1000 RMB per night for 2 nights at the New World. I was recommended to stay there, as it was walking distance from the location of my business meetings. The hotel was under renovation, so access was poor. In addition, my rate did not include WiFi (free only in the lobby) and breakfast was also not included. For Shanghai suburb standards, the bathroom size was small. In-room amenities were ok. Security was good (I left behind a package at the lobby, and it had been retrieved and safely stored. After identification, it was handed back to me when I discovered it was missing and went looking for it). Couple of coffee shops (including Starbucks) round the corner, and a large mall (attached to the Renaissance Hotel) within 10 min walking distance. Hotel on top of the MRT station, in case you wanted to take public transport. For a lower price, I could have stayed at other 4 star chains closeby for lesser - with breakfast & wifi included.
