“Cleanest washroom in my China trip so far”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

This hotel had the cleanest washroom on my budget trip through China so far. A bit far from things but was decent for a 1 night stay. The rooms were OK didn't spend much time in it. The staff was friendly and check-in/out was convenient.

Although a little hard to find this little hotel is first rate. No services but the rooms are clean comfortable and convenient. Five minutes walk to the Nanjing Metro stop and about 10 minutes walk to the Bund. Best value in Shanghai close to the Bund. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Friendly staff (spoke good English) and good coffee. Great dumpling place just a few minutes walk from the hotel.

I read the reviews and thought this would be a good budget place to go, but after trekking on the subway and walking there following their awful directions, I saw a dump in a dump neighborhood, with a not much better lobby. I didn't even venture to see a room. Now, those rooms may be nice, but I felt that the overall location (dicey), wasn't worth the monetary savings. There are much better places for comparable price elsewhere in Shanghai and Pudong. Remember, if you pay a little more but are located close to a subway station, you can go anywhere faster and safer. So spend another $10 and be safe and sleep in a nice hotel!

The entrance is down a dark, deserted alley past a micro street market. My stomach turned as I walked down and thought, this might be the type of place where I would wake up in an ice bath, missing a kidney, now lost to the organ market. Alas, relief was just around the corner, where a pinkish glow emanated from the neon-lit entrance with automatic sliding glass doors - just like in the pictures!

No one harassed me along the way and it was a mere 5 minute walk from the East Nanjing metro station of Line 2. 10 minutes from the Bund. Being a showpiece city for China, Shanghai is generally safe for a solo traveller "as long as you stay away from dark alleys," according to the innkeeper. Fish Inn's alley must be an exception or there must be darker alleys out there.

I like the split-level nature of the rooms. It kept the dust and dirt from the hallway or living room from scurrying into the upper level where the bed was located. The bedroom had a floral wall mural and flat-screen TV with 3 channels. A small window looked out into a small residential alley with laundry hanging out to dry. I didn't see any bedbugs or evidence thereof. There was no safe.

The salad bowl sized and shaped sink in the bathroom was a nice touch and reflects the trend in contemporary asian hotel interior design. The toilets are western style. The shower stall has both a handheld head and a rain showerhead. The hot water supply was immediate and consistent. The towels were small, stained and shabby but washed.

The carpets in the hallways were ragged. Elevator was slow but a staircase was nearby. WiFi worked consistently on the 2nd floor but don't expect blazing speed. Emails and chat messages are sent with a lag as the government checks my data packets for suspicious destinations or politically sensitive content.

English-speaking concierges made my stay a breeze. They were willing to write down directions in Chinese for the taxi drivers and point me to a blind massage parlor.

Watch your step on your way out the front door. The slight raised foyer tripped me every time I went out!

Room Tip: 2nd floor has more consistent WiFi than upper floors

On arrival we were so happy to receive such a warm welcome and presented with helpful staff. It had a good location close to the Metro (approx 10 min walk)- 3 streets north from metro station. We had many attractions 10 min walk to the Bund and Nanjing Rd. The room was clean and tidy and provided good value for money.

Many local restaurants in the area, and the staff helped us choose wisely. Yang's Dried dumplings was literally around the corner and had great noodles and dumplings.

We were allowed to check in early, which we greatly appreciated. Candice provided great email instructions re how to arrive from airport, and was extremely helpful during our stay- to organise trains and trips. We are very appreciative.

Free wifi in rooms and lobby. Also had internet linked laptop down at reception that was great.
Highly recommended.

We stayed at Fish Inn for 5 nights. It is in a quiet and convenient location, walking distance to the bund, shopping areas and a metro station. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. It was the first good night's sleep we got in our trip to China. The WiFi didn't really work on the 3rd floor but other than that everything was perfect and it was a great value.

Helpful staff, good location close to the Metro and many attractions 10 min walk to the Bund and Nanjing Rd. The room was clean and tidy and provided good value for money.

Many local restaurants in the area, in 4 days we didnt have bad meal (22 -48 Yuen per meal & 12 for beer) many restaurants refused to accept tips.

We went to see the ERA acrobats (200 a ticket & 6 yuen on the metro) - The show was absolutely amazing!! We turned up at 19:15 for a 19:30 show ( Tuesday) there werent many tickets left...

Room Tip: We were in a suite (205) not much of a view but extremely quiet. Good wi-fi connection as well.
