This is an amazingly convenient place to stay in Shanghai. At first, when I finally found the front entrance, I was full of trepidation as it is NOT a Hotel Lobby - rather a entrance to an office building. With the Reception on the 16th floor and in a corner "office", the illusion doesn't stop. But, the room was amazing - clean and comfortable, although the bathroom was just a tad too small. But, the room was prepared beautifully, with the table set up and a nice bowl of fruit and snacks - a great touch! It is a serviced apartment complete with kitchenette. It overlooks Jingan Temple, but to get there is a slight issue, as the entrance is on YuYuan Branch Road - not Wulumuqi. From the Jingan Temple subway station, take Exit 1. The excalator will take you to the corner of Huashan and Nanjing. From there turn right up Huashan and turn left at the intersection (200 meters up) and stay on the left footpath as YuYuan Road veers to the left and going straight will take you along YuYuan Branch Road. You will see the apartment building directly ahead of you and you can take the ramp off the footpath. I love it and will return to it!

Room Tip: It is not a Hotel, so don't expect the Gym, restaurants or concierge. But location is fantastic!

Good value for money compared to some of the hotels in this area of town. The basic studio apartment option is currently less than 350 RMB per night and depending on what side of the building you are in, you can have a wonderful view of Shanghai at night time as the living room has 'panoramic' style windows. Apartments seem to contain all the necessary items such as a microwave, cooking utensils etc. Interestingly enough they also come with a washing machine fitted.

The location is ideal - less than 5 minutes walk from Jing'an metro station (line 2) and situated in a nice little community that has a few restaurants and bars nearby. The only slight criticism is that on the 8th floor facing West Nanjing Road you can hear the music from the nearby MGM disco during the night.

The staff in the office are very friendly and speak english.

Internet access is free.

Room Tip: 15th floor is your best bet for a great view of Shanghai

Although I normally wouldn't have even known about this hotel or considered one so far down the list on TripAdvisor, the language school where my daughter was studying recommended it and it turned out to be a good option. I may not recommend it for a short term stay but if you want a convenient place to park yourself for a month or two while studying or doing business that requires you to stay in Shanghai for awhile, I think it is a good option and I probably would stay here again for that. The location is super convenient to everything.

The staff on the 13th floor takes care of your needs, taxis, translations etc and the women who service the apartment every other day wash any dishes that are in your sink and also do your laundry for you on a washer in the bathroom.

I do want to comment on the state of the rooms as they have been mentioned frequently. They are definitely tired and yes, in need of renovation. There was indeed some paint peeling on the ceiling and the plumbing leaked on occasion. If I were in a hotel I wouldnt stand for it. But in general all systems were adequate and my room was always clean and this was more like your own apartment with cooking facilities and someone to clean it for you. There is also free internet access and inexpensive food options directly outside.

Tip 1- if you are staying for the month you should ask for the monthly rate that is about 30% less than the lowest published nightly rate. You need to pay for utilities separately if you do that but it still represented a good net savings. .
Tip 2 - I usually went to a luxury hotel like the Puli, Ritz or Marriott for a glass of wine when I felt the need for a respite from the "functionality" of this hotel. Never order coffee at one of them - for some reason it costs more than a beer or glass of wine in china.

Room Tip: I found that having a room on the 13th floor near the management office was helpful

A functional apartment near to metro station and upmarket shopping area in Shanghai. Daily housekeeping without meals. Highfloor with some view of the city. For the price you pay it is well worth the money and budget stay in Shanghai. Most imporatant you have free wired highspeed internet through LAN.

Very good location. Five minutes walk (or less) to Jing An station on underground train line #2. From there, I took connecting train to Shanghai Train Station, Hong Qiao Train Station and also Hong Qiao Airport. Around the Jing An area there are many local and western eateries. I haven't found a grocery supermarket but I bumped into overseas travelers in this service apartment who came into the lift with some groceries. I supposed that can't be too far away.

The room is basically clean. Internet connection was good. Plenty of DVDs collection for spending a night in. I like the neighborhood too coz it's not too commercialized and the old trees lining up along the road made it felt very old-Shanghai.

I certainly recommend this place.
