“It has its pros and cons...”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Good Points:

1. The rooms are fairly spacious, bathroom was nice and clean.
2. Hotel is located next door to a shopping mall of which you could find a variety of restaurants to eat from including McDonald's, KFC, Starbucks for coffee, etc.
2. The shops are brand name outlets but quite quite pricy.

Weak Points:
1. Its located about an hour away from the airport (not sure of the name but there are two airports in Shanghai). The hotel does not provide shuttle service to/from the airport. The taxi driver could not speaking English and so it was a challenge to get to the Hotel.
2. The breakfast was average, would prefer to eat somewhere else.
3. The staff at reception has a difficult time understanding English. Seriously!
4. For three consecutive nights, I tried ordering a simple dish with chicken to my room. It seems that the hotel always 'ran out of chicken'.

Overall, I would come again, only if I really need to be in this area of Shanghai.

Spent 5 nights at the New Century, and find it hard to fault! It IS hard to get the temperature in the room down below 70C, but on the plus side, I didn't have my usual air conditioning respiratory "issue"! The complementary breakfast offered a good variety of western options, I felt safe walking around the lake and to the near by Starbucks, although crossing the street requires timing! Met local Shanghai friends for dinner in one of the private rooms, and had a wonderful meal, with attentive service.

I went couple of times in this hotel for business purpose. It's good when you've business to do in the area. It's probably the best in that surrounding. The hotel is attached to a a kind of mall where it's possible to eat at a much affordable price. Their Japanese restaurant is good, the spa is ok and the rooms comfortable.

I've spent one night at this hotel for the second time.
I chose this hotel as it was recommended by the company that hosted me , and indeed it was good.
Although the location is actually outside of Shanghai , but it was good for me as I had to visit a company in this location ( 10 min. with taxi ).
Overall the hotel is very nice, the stuff are nice and friendly.

The room was large and clean, the beds are very comfortable, and inside the room there was another desk for the laptop. The internet was included , and it worked very well.
The breakfast at the hotel was very good with many choices.
Close to the hotel there is a shopping center with many restaurants, Starbucks, and other coffee shops.

The rooms are relatively spacious, but the decor is tired and the furnishings are becoming worn out. The bed was too hard and the chairs uncomfortable. The room was also too warm with no AC available. We stayed here because of its proximity to a business visit, but it is far from Shanghai city center. Look elsewhere unless you need to be in this area.

This hotel is beautiful, a great place to stay for holidays or a business trip. Rooms at .10th level already very nice design. Breakfast good. Many dinner options, in hotel or in the connected shopping mall. There you will also find a La Oliva restaurant with italian food. I couldn't find anything negative. Would be nice to stay more in the inner city instead of this place (Songjan), but for this price of 80-100 euro per night you get an excellent deal.
