This hotel is worth 5 stars in many ways- excellent location, comfy and modern design, a full set of toiletries, a good choice of breakfast etc. It's right opposite the JingAn Temple metro station, and a short walk away from the restaurant area at the former French Concession.
However, I have to deduct two stars due to two things-
1. Very weak in-room wifi. Perhaps it's just my room, but wifi should be essential in a brand new 5 star boutique hotel in the middle of China's metropolis. There's no excuse for the weak or even absent signals.
2. Half-empty bath gel- this is very gross. Only after I put some of the shower gel on my body that I realize it's originally half-empty. It was out first night at the hotel and we have not touched the shower gel at all. The only explanation is that the housekeeper mistook the used gel as a new one. VERY UNHYGIENIC especially when Shanghai is under the threat of avian flu H7N9.
