After flying half-way round the world it was extremely unsettling to think that I had to spend three nights in this deplorable, decrepit hotel. The first thing one notices is the business card (this must be the "business" part of the hotel's name) for a hooker, then the basket of condoms on the desk. The ceiling was peeling off, the rug made the supplied slippers make perfect sense, the light quality in the bathroom made shaving a very dangerous venture, and the shower needed to be so quick or the over-runninng water would flood the floor. The bed made my kitchen floor at home seem not a bad option for a night's sleep. All in all, this was a horrible hotel and not the sort of first impression I should think that China wants to make to foreigners.

I don`t want to be negative ,but after flying all the way to China from the States, checking into our room at this place was a supreme disappointment. The floors hadn`t been vacuumed in I don`t how long, The bathroom reeked of urine and the ceiling over the shower stall was moldy and sagging. We asked for a new room and the new one was marginally better. Hooker call cards were scattered about, I think when they say Business Hotel, the`re talking about the sex trade. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else to stay.

This hotel needs a vast improvement in staff service and facilities before it can truely be called a "business hotel". The staff were bordering on rude on all interactions I had with them. I have stayed at about 20 hotels of similar price in China and this was by far the worst, even considering the language barrier. The electronic passes for the room are very slim and flimsy, they will break very easy. Clearly this is a design fault, but if you break it you will forfeit 30 yuan in deposit. Also they did not have any facilities for guests such ad a bottle opener. While this may seem petty it is an example of how poorly set up this "business hotel" is. I do not believe even a Chinese business person would accept such a poor quality hotel, especially in Shanghai.

Definitely do not stay at this hotel!

Our bathroom is dirty - when we checked in, there were stains on the toilet seat (broken) that we had to clean ourselves and the shower tray is mouldy.

The room is dated - nothing like the photos. The king-sized bed is as hard as any other hotels in China but we still slept well. This morning at 9am, a lady knocked on our door so that she could empty our rubbish bin (we were not impressed! Surely she could have changed it a bit later rather than waking us up) and when we came back to our room tonight, the room had not been cleaned and no fresh towels (note: all towels looked worn out and often had holes in them). However, there was no problem when we asked for fresh ones and they brought them to our room quite quickly.

The free broadband internet is slow but workable but you'll need to pay a 20RMB deposit for the cable! Also, the kettle looked so dirty that we didn't dare to use it.

But overall, this hotel is cheap for Shanghai and had availability during expo and the Oct 1 National Day. It's 5mins walk from the Chifeng Rd metro station. But we would look elsewhere next time if we were back in Shanghai.
