We stayed at this hotel for two nights while touring China. This hotel was nice but not exceptional. The lobby was nice but not opulent. The rooms were small but did have a kitchen if you should require one. The bathrooms were also small. The beds were comfortable enough. We had an outside door leading onto a quasi balcony but was locked as were the windows. The room seemed clean if somewhat drab.
As seems to be a common problem with Chinese hotels the toilet didn't work properly so we had maintenance come up and 'fix' it. After maintenance left it was pretty obvious that the toilet wasn't fixed so we resorted to the lobby toilets when required and put up with the stench of cigarette smoke.
The best thing about this hotel were the breakfast buffets which catered to the whole gamut of international tastes.
I might stay here again and I might not depending on prices and what other hotels are available. The location is not the best for Shanghai as it is a fair distance away from the sightseeing spots which means you are stuck in traffic a lot of the time
