We stayed 4 nights in a "City View King's Room" at Shanghai SSAW Hotel mid August 2012.
Chosed this hotel because of its convenient location around Old Shanghai and also it's just a mere 5 minutes walk from Exit 4 of Yuyuan subway station. Thus it's also very accessible to other parts of Shanghai via subway.
The room is fully renovated, spacious and we especially love the bathroom - it is really big. There is a shower room as well as an "open" bath tub separating 2 basins.
Apart from the 2 bottles of mineral water provided everyday, canned and bottled drinks as well as a packet of biscuits is provided in the fridge. These are replenished everyday. There's also a capsule coffee machine with coffee provided. The buffet breakfast comes with plenty of fruits and a good variety.
The only confusion is that they make you sign yor credit card twice (once "as pre-authorisation") and the 2nd time (the actual one). The "pre-authorisation" was not presented for payment.
For the price, comfort and all conveniences, we'll definitely be back!
