My husband and I have visited Shanghai twice in the last 1.5 years and both times were impressed with the value and location we received at this hotel. You get hot water, clean rooms, free internet, cable TV, comfortable/warm beds, free bottled water, and great customer service. The strange thing is that the bathroom is made of all glass, so if you are sharing a room with someone you aren't THAT close to, you need to draw the drape and stay on your side of the room. We didn't even have a door on our bathroom, so it is a very open feel.
The best part of this hotel is the location. It is situated a bit far from the Bund and the tourist attractions, but it's located across the street from the very easy to use train/subway system (we don't speak mandarin) and next to a lot of great/authentic Chinese food. Across the street from the hotel is a small mall, with 2 of our favorite restaurants, a Schezuan place on the top floor and a Yang's Fried Dumplings (must try) on the bottom basement floor. There's also a Happy Lemon in that mall if you like milk tea. On the right and left of the hotel within 1-2 blocks are lots of different dimsum style breakfast spots and bakeries. You will not go hungry.
On the corner there's a bank for you to exchange money (bring your passport), but be prepared for a line. If you are from the states and have Bank of America, you can go to a local China Construction bank and withdraw from the ATM with no fees.
Anyway, love this place and would highly recommend it! The price is also really reasonable!
