First of all, as far as I'm aware this hotel is now just referred to as East Asia Hotel, as all the adverts for it on Nanjing Road refer to it as such. As imaginable on Nanjing Road, this place is in an absolutely fantastic location - a 10 minute walk to the Bund and pretty central on Nanjing Road itself. People's Sq station is probably the nearer of the two (the other being East Nanjing Rd) for the metro but both are fairly close - another big plus.
The staff were a bit abrupt, but at the end of the day they did their job when needed - it was a little ironic that they were all wearing smiley face badges - particularly after we'd read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor! They did however let us check in early, which was a big plus as we'd just arrived from a pretty bad nights sleep on a train.
The room was clean, comfortable and an OK size. The only downside was that it was a bit noisy at night - the walls were rather thin.
For the money, this hotel is great value in a city where things are slowly getting more expensive (especially with the Expo being on at the time of writing). The location alone makes it a very good choice indeed.
