The hotel is located close by to the Metro stop "Chuansha", this stop is the 5th stop from Pudong International Airport and takes around 15-20 minutes. I highly recommend the metro from the airport because I got quoted 300 RMB by taxi (which also takes around 20 minutes) where as the metro was 4 RMB. Once you come out of the metro you should see the building and its about 5 minute walk but there are plenty of taxi's outside if you need assistance with luggage.
Around the hotel there is a small shopping mall which lots of different shops including grocery computer and clothes shops. There various chinese restaurants and some american fast food restaurants such Mc Donalds and Papa John.
To get to downtown on the metro to say Peoples Squares takes about an hour but is on the same line. They do i believe offer a free shuttle but when i called at the airport there was at least an hour wait and apparently it takes 40 minutes, so metro is a lot quicker.
The room is actually quite large and has all comfort amenities such as a large flat screen TV, a good desk with comfortable chair, a mini couch and table and the bathroom has both a bath and Shower. The internet is only cable not wifi which is a bit annoying as the cable is rather short.The room was on the 12th floor and offered a decent view from the glass to floor windows. There are plenty of mirrors and very good lighting options including dimmer switches. The king size bed was the highlight of the hotel, it was extremely comfortable soft and large and slept very well. All in all the room decor was dark and relaxing but nothing special, it had good cupboard space and the curtains are able to completely block out all light from outside enabling sleep during the day. The bathroom was airy and with the bath had typical window to room with electronic shutters, the shower was very good with rain shower above and small detached one, all very clean. There was plenty of amount of amenities but not branded and not partially special. The TV is good size but is limited for english speaking channels (MSN, HBO & CNN only). All in all room was very clean, spacious and comfortable.
The hotel has three restaurants, a bar and spa gym area. Only used the main one for breakfast and had room service. Room service was adequate, ordered club sandwich which arrived in less than 20 minutes (1.30am), it tasted good but was simply presented but at 60RMB it was ok. Breakfast was ok, plenty of asian options, western options include chicken sausage, bacon, egg, waffles, pancakes and beans. All presented buffet style. The food was again adequate with plenty of bread and pastry options. There was also a salad bar but a limited amount of fruit and some of the meats was left uncovered. Bread though was very fresh and service was ok, staff fairly welcoming and offer to get hot drinks, food was replenished quickly and plates were cleared frequently.
Didn't visit the bar or other restaurants but did see the area's and looked ok. Visited the gym and spa area but didnt use, the gym was quite good with modern equipment and clean. The Spa offers massage but found it a bit expensive so didnt use. (Massages around 400 RMB for an hour). The general decor is modern but somewhat tacky.
Staff were in general ok but not the most helpful. The front desk whom were the only staff that spoke good English were fairly quick in check-in and check-out but with questions such as transfer and time to downtown was instructed to speak to concierge. Concierge spoke very little English and so was not so helpful.
Overall the hotel was fine and good for the price 700 RMB with breakfast. The location is ok if you need to be close to PVG airport but not so great to get to downtown area.
