For those considering staying at this hotel it is key to understand what you can expect and what you should not from the choice. What you can expect: good midrange quality of accommodation (low-end 4-star in my personal judgment), a prime location in town with convenient access to transportation and a nice view over the city. What you should not expect - as you won't get: the luxury associated with hotels of its rank.
The hotel is definitely very generous in promoting themselves as a 5-star (friends from Shanghai advice me this was the top place in town in the early 90s, unfortunately no much upgrade work seems to having been carried out since) thought the fact rates are up to ~20% lower than 5-star options in same area hints the hotel has something to give to its contemporary competitors.
Being familiar with the city, the location and the property, we booked this hotel with good understanding of what to expect and the hotel just delivered on the expectations: for the reasonable price that we paid, we got good resting, a nice view over the city and a perfect location for a leisure day in town. We would return to this place as it matches our travel standards and we feel recommending it as long as you understand the strengths and the limitations of the place.
