While World Union might not be the best option if you're looking for a place to crash for a few nights, it's a great place to stay for a couple weeks to a few months. The apartment (1bath/1bed/living room) we had was equipped with electric burners and a range, microwave, sink, and utensils. There was also plenty of furniture to spread out on, and a washer in the room for convenience. It's right between Nanjing Xi lu and Beijing Xi lu, surrounded by a plethora of dining options from low-to-high end. You can get to Jing An Temple metro station without crossing any streets using their underpass on Huashan Lu. It's in a great, relatively high-end neighborhood and I think we'll be staying here again next time.
Only problems - beds are definitely not as comfy as we were used to, and some of the furniture/utilities were old and showed it.More
