“Nice but warm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Very nice hotel, but could not get the room cooled down. Rooms are air-conditioned to Chinese standards so we had difficulty getting comfortable. The beds have comforter type sheets rather than thin sheets like in the US, so it was rather warm for sleeping. Hotel is very clean, buffet style breakfast was great with a big selection. We were with a Gate1-Travel tour, so we didn't experience the check-in process, it was done for us. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay except for the air-conditioning in the room.

Lovely room - clean, very comfortable bed, quality fitments and linens. Bathroom/shower had view into bedroom which could be easily closed off with electronic blind - great feature - and overhead shower as well as wall fitment. Close to 2 railway stations/undergrounds giving easy access to almost everywhere.

Breakfast buffet catered for all tastes - plenty of choices including omelettes etc cooked to order and crispy as well as not so well cooked bacon, but we were not keen on the sausages.Fruit juices were a bit bland which also made the Pina Colada a bit tasteless but they ask for feedback and are keen to improve which is always a good sign.

Dinner menu good but two nights on our 5 night stay was enough. Staff very helpful.

Definitely recommended.

This is a very nice hotel, the room is spacious with nice bathroom. The rooms generally have 2 queen size beds and a desk. You can get free WiFi if you haggle with the desk manager or it is available in the lobby. I suggest you haggle. When we went breakfast was included and the buffet had lots to choose from. Fresh eggs weren't available at the time, may have been a bird flu problem at the time though.
Staff are very friendly and the service in the lobby bar is quite good, make sure you tip and they look after you.
We went earlier than June 2013, around April.

I had a great experience at this hotel. Very clean rooms and the staff was great! The breakfast was huge with all kinds of options. Very close to my office, but also close to the train station if you wanted to get out of the city.

I stayed in this hotel from 12-14 May 2014. The hotel location is very very good as it is very close to a Metro Station which is not too far from the main tourist attractions. The room was excellent and the service was fabulous too. Its a good place for tourists to stay. The breakfast had lots of variety and staff was very friendly.

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Maybe not too close to the CBD area in Pudong, but definitely very close to areas like Nanjing Road...

Nearby metro station ( 5 min walk ) gets you easily to all the great Shanghai sights and activities. The Jade Buddha and shopping alleys are a walk away from the hotel.Staff are courteous and determined to solve any issues that arise. Try to upgrade for the executive lounge on the 30th floor - views are great and the complimentary food and drinks help you unwind after a busy day sightseeing.
