Reviews for this place (now called the Greenland Jiulong) seem very variable, but it was the first hotel on our Travelsphere tour and we were expecting much worse. The room was spacious, well furnished and clean and the bed wasn't too hard. Very well located too, an easy walk to the Bund - although if you turn right out of the hotel you'll soon encounter the seedier side of Shanghai with ladies plying their trade.
Breakfast was OK, a reasonable Western style buffet. Did get a bit ripped off for the drinks at the welcome buffet on the evening of arrival, though, by far the most expensive beers of the whole trip.
The hotel struggles a bit for lifts - there are only three fairly small lifts, and as the hotel is a tower it can take a very long time for one to arrive.
All in all we were pleasantly surprised, we'd expected something far more basic and seedy.
