“Adequate for my needs”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

The one good thing about this hotel is that it is situated directly above Exit no.2 of Hongkou Football Stadium station of Line 8. You're within 4 stops of People's Square, the central area of Shanghai. Breakfast is actually pretty good and is included every morning. The free wired internet is also a bonus. However, you need to watch how you use the toilet paper since it can run out before the end of the day. I did notice a few cockroaches roaming around though not many. The use of English is very limited at this hotel as well. With regards to the Fitness room, it's pretty shabby and open only 2 hrs in the morning and 2 in the evening. This is more like a 3 star hotel then a 4 star. However, what we paid was a great deal compared to other hotels. It is also near the Sichan shopping district. Currently, there is construction of a hotel and mall across the street so you may hear construction throughout the day. I would recommend it if you get a great deal on this hotel. (under $100 incl tx)

This hotel has seen better days. Its far from the center, a bit sketchy at night and it is not the cleanest. No wireless near, breakfast included but tough to find some decent western options. It is attached to a subway which makes things convenient but attracts interesting people at night. In shanghai you can do better.
