Baolong Homelike Hotel Shanghai Henglong
Ranked #1,166 of 5,161 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed 25 June 2012

This hotel has some advantages: its cheap; its clean; it well located. The business room is quite large too and has broadband (through an ethernet cable).

But . . . the second room I stayed in was exceptionally smelly of fresh cigarette smoke from an adjoining room. Really unpleasant. Also, poor service let them down including slow check in and forgetting basics like toilet paper when cleaning the room!

Location is the only good thing about this Hotel. The rooms are smelly and most of them have no windows. The staff does not speak English at all and is really not helpful.

Room Tip: Even the expensive business rooms are tiny and smelly.

If you like lying awake on a piece of rock all night long with lost of noise, this is the place for you. I was originally booked into a room on the 5th floor. Right opposite my window was a notorious night club (Manhatten) which I knew pumped out loud music all night long. So I opted to change rooms. They only has one available on the first floor. Big mistake. The noise from the entrance, phone at reception, guest walking on wooden floors was unbearable. I had to utilize simplynoise.com to help me sleep. Check it out if you are in a similar situation. My room was dark and small, there was nothing on TV exept 60 Chinese channels. The matrass was so hard, when I first sat on it, I was convinced it was wooden. In order to help me get comforable, I had to use half the dovet underneath me. A good night's rest is the most important service a hotel provides. They did not do this. I even tried going home early, but no flights were available. Will not be back there again.

Room Tip: Warning: Do not stay on the ground floor

We liked this hotel but ended up switching because it was not what we needed for this particular trip. The location is great if you are into shopping - an easy walk to Nanjing Rd. Jing An is also very central, so everything is easy to get to. The hotel itself is very tastefully decorated with antique-style Chinese furnishings, making it a great taste of China and very warn and cosy. The service is pretty much non-existent, so keep that in mind. You aren't paying for it, so fair enough. For us, this was a work trip though and although we booked the business room, it was quite small and very dark (the whole cosy vibe does not involve much lighting). There was only just enough space for one person to use their computer, making work impossible for us, let alone two internet connections. Internet is very slow too. There is a window but it looks out onto a contruction site which is actually very noisy in the mornings and wakes you up bright and early. For us, this meant we felt a bit closed in and could only handle a few days of it before we needed more space to breathe. We ended up moving to a less central location to get the extra breathing room. Depending on your objectives though, this could very well do the job for you.

Oh yes - if you have any mobility issues you may have trouble accessing the rooms. There is an elevator but it does not circumvent the need to climb stairs with your luggage (with no help). Our room was also a very, very long way from the lift area.

Room Tip: If you can afford the business room I would advise it - the other rooms looked very, very small.

This was the 3rd time for me to return to the Baolong Homelike Hotel in Shanghai, or B-Hotel, as most people call it. If available, make sure you get a "Business Room". They are quite spaceous, separate shower room and toilette, large double sink area, adequate work table & area, free wired internet etc, and certainly got 2 large windows you actually can open. Well worth the extra few $$, considering that the B has already extremely afffordable room prices to begin with. They do offer a free breakfast. So try it out if you like. Maybe it's not for you. If you walk out and around the block, there are many shops and restaurants, which offer sandwiches, juice bars, and many more food items. A great place to go to is called THE SPOT. Excellent food, great variety. Good drinks and beers. You can order take out, if you want. Go out of the B an to the street. Turn LEFT, and walk a few minutes to the end of the road, where you'll hit a T-junction. THE SPOT is just opposite at the other side of the street. You can't miss it.
Worth to note here is the LOCATION of the B-Hotel !! It's just behind the glamerous Ritz Carlton. You in fact look at the Hotel when going up in the glass elevator at the B. You can access Nanjing Rd. in a few minutes, you got subway access within a few minutes walk as well. For me, and being there on business for a week or 10 days, this is where I will go back to. Can't find a "" better bang for the buck"" so to speak, and again, the location is a big added bonus.

Room Tip: ask for a "Business Room on the 3rd or 5th floor, if available

First off, i managed to get a very good rate through booking.com. Only at 239 RMB per night, which as it turned out was a wrong rate (apparently the hotel had increased its rates but the website hadn't). But i just so happened to be checking out with the person who appeared to be the manager, this wasn't a problem, though she did make a couple of phone calls to clarify the rate. AND it helps that i speak enough mandarin to steer my way out of such situations. So at such a price, i thought that the accommodation was quite a steal. Yes, the room was rather small (i might have been better off in the Ibis in the Old City in terms of size), the bathroom definitely flooded a fair bit after each shower, and my room did have that musty mix of wet wood and stale smoke smell. But at least it was a clean place, and they met my booking request for a room that is quiet and has a window (note not all rooms do). I liked that it was near enough to the bus terminal and metro stations from which you could get to/from the airport and hongqiao train station (to get those "gao" trains to hangzhou) because you are backpacking then it is but a short walk. also french concession area (luwan) is just a short 20 min walk away.

It's clean and cheap. My single standard on the first floor had no window. Maybe the rooms on the higher floors have windows? First floor very loud. Wooden floors in the hallway mean guests can hear everything. When the phone rings in the lobby, new guests arrive, someone comes in late --- can hear everything!! Very clean. Would stay again if needed but still looking for a cheap place to stay with a window.
