Been traveling every year for 12 years in China and always looking for a good hotel at a reasonable rate and found one in Shanghai. My wife is Chinese and go to visit family every year and always do side trips. Generally, I have found Chinese hotels for a vacationing traveler less maintained and short on what services you tend to expect than what you find in USA unless you want to pay and stay at high priced hotels. Yea, this one passed on every area of concern. Room rate was reasonable (much cheaper and better rooms than staying on the Bund), was very clean and décor was very nice and maintained. Service by staff was excellent. Free breakfast was the best of all the hotels I have stay when traveling in China. Location was only a 3.50 cab ride to the Bund (a must see) and or an easy to take bus ride (.35) 2 yuan cost (Bus number 71) at a stop one block east on Yan An Rd away. Be sure to have 1 Yuan coins for payment. Walked around the area and found very good restaurants, old historic buildings and most importantly a safe feeling on the streets even at 1:00am.
