“No Hot Water for Shower!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

Just my luck that this has happened to me again! See my previous review! There is no hot water supply since I arrived in this in-the-middle-of nowhere hotel!

I have to resort to showering in the gym and swimming pool shower rooms on the two nights that I was there - although it was March in Shanghai but the temperature was still below 10 deg.C!
I made a quick check-out by the second day morning!

Apart from that, the room was quite large, clean and acceptable.
TV programs are crap - they must fix the antenna - the signal was intermittent - back to the stone age.

Breakfast selection was below average.

It's big and empty - i feel like I am the only person staying there...

Room Tip: Stay here if you are on business trip and your client or local office is nearby - otherwise avoid at...

If you don't like crowds or people, this is the place for you. It is a VERY nice hotel and nice golf course, but the place is a ghost town. The only people that stay here are Chemical business travelers for the SCIP.. This means it is nearly empty. The rooms are SUPER NICE, large and clean. Shower is great. Nice tub and room refrigerator. Views of the course are good- if you can see thru the smog. I have spent about 10-15 nights here and slept well every night. There is a very quiet sitting area down stairs for a drink after work that has free wifi. No wifi in the rooms, only wired. The breakfast (only time I ate there) was average. After several days there in a row, the staff will know your face along with the few guest at breakfast. It is kind of sad that this nice of a hotel is not busier.

We went to Sino Bay for the solar eclipse, and the hotel was booked full with tour groups for the event.
Since we were members, we got a free upgrade to a HUGE executive suite, with a spectacular panoramic window facing the golf course.
Staff went out of their way to accommodate every wish of the eclipse watchers. They carried charis out to the parking, cold water and snacks was for sale outside during the eclipse. And then rain started to fall, staff holding umbrellas escorted guests with cameras. Much appreciated!
Large indoor play area for kids - free of charge. Large circular domed swimming pool - free, but you must wear swim cap! Bring your own, or buy on location for 40RMB or so (we didn't).
The restaurant was lavist, but slightly overpriced. The hotel is in the middle of an industrial area, so no other food or shopping options at all within walking distance.
Cabled internet was free but patchy, lots of dropouts during a thunderstorm at night. Satellite TV also lost the signal because of the bad weather.
No public transport whatsoever nearby. The only way to reach the hotel is by taxi. If you're on a budget, you could take a bus to Jinshan and taxi from there.
Going back to Shanghai, note that local Jinshan taxis are not allowed to enter the Shanghai city limits, but will drop you at the South Railway Station, where you have to shift to another cab. Pretty annoying if you have a baby and lots of luggage, but I can't blame the hotel for that.
