This hotel is difficult to find but the entrance is just around the corner from Renmin Road in Yong'an Road. The Reception is located on the 8th floor with rooms above this. Not many reception staff speak english but we got by and they were helpful. Great location just across the road from the entrance to the Yuyang Gardens area and easy walk to the Bund. The room was spacious and quiet without any road noise or other guests. However, the beds are like rocks. The bathroom is small but adequate. A 500CNY charge to our credit card for the mini bar when we checked in. You also need to request a power plug adapter as they have different pin points.
We ate in the "International" restaurant and the service was non existent. Staff in the restaurant speak little or no english and usually ignore you unless you get their attention. Its messy and at times dirty with food on tables and the floor. Seating is wherever you like and sometimes you can lose you table if you go to the buffet breakfast together. The staff clear the plates only when you leave and they sometimes reset the tables but you have to get your own tea and coffee with limited milk available. Food was just ok and it was the same buffet breakfast every day.
The accommodation was cheap for the location and is was safe and clean. Good value for limited spend.
