The hotel is located in a very quiet neighborhood which has a good size mall right next to it. The room is very comfortable but they didn't turn on the A/C in the room while the temp. outside was in the low 70's (F). I found out that this is a very common problem in a lot of hotels in China. The breakfast buffet was good but I wish that they have a counter to serve noodles with soup. The Reception and the Concierge are very friendly and helpful. One night I couldn't locate my room card when I returned to my room so I went to the front desk and ask for another room card and the receptionist was very gracious to give me an extra room card without asking any questions. When we check-out of the hotel and took a taxi to the MagLev Station to catch the MagLev train to Pudong Shanghai International Airport, the taxi ride costs about 25 RMB during the morning heavy traffic hour. It was so convenient and quick to get into the airport terminal.
The nice thing about this hotel is that there is a mall right next to it and it has over 20 different restaurants which you can eat lunch/dinner. Most of the prices were not expensive at all. I would recommend this hotel to those who are considering of visiting Shanghai.
