I chose this hotel since it was a bit inexpensive compared with other hotels in Shanghai. Of course, that meant sacrificing other services and comforts that goes with a higher price. One main selling point of the hotel for me was the location. It was near major tourist spots and a short walk to the Yu Yuan Metro Station. There is a FamilyMart convenience store right beside the hotel and many small shops selling noodles and milk tea. Exit through Exit 4 of the Yu Yuan Metro then go straight ahead, cross the street and you’ll find the hotel to your left. WiFi connection was good, even inside the room. Generally, the room was clean but small. It hardly had enough space to put my luggage in. The hallway smelled like cigarettes and the carpet looked quite old. I was on the third floor so I could hear the noise from outside.
The staff were friendly, although did not speak English that well. But they do make an effort to really understand you. Given the prices of other hotels in Shanghai, this hotel is worth considering. The location, connectivity, and service are satisfactory, but the room size and smell of cigarettes might be a turn off. I recommend staying at this hotel only if you are on a tight budget going to Shanghai.
