Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2014 with a friend and the only thing you can get by staying in this hotel is Location. thats about it. tourism spots are in walking distance : Yu garden, the Bund, Nanjing Road ( too close to get there by car or taxi, but yet it was also quite a long walk! so make sure you have enough energy to walk or have big breakfast before out for sight seeing. my suggestion to go cheap sightseeing is by going to People's Square ( you can take metro from a 3 mnts walking metro station nearby hotel) and take sight seeing bus ( ticket is 40 yuan) which will take you around the city, much cheaper compare if you take taxi. this bus will pass by all the tourist spot where you can get off or better just sit back and enjoy the view from the bus :)
speaking of breakfast, no breakfast provided, but mini mart can be found only few steps from hotel. they don't provide spoon in the room which made me use a plastic fork i got from instant noodles to stir my tea or coffee ( oh they only give you complimentary tea, no coffee) and they also won't wash/replace your glass. so please be happy to do it by yourself. they will only clean your room upon request.
i didn't have problem with sleeping, becoz of too tired of walking i guess, but might want consider rooms in high level ( i was staying in 4th floor). room was small but descent, low ceiling, shower hot & cold water ok. staff not friendly, they won't bother to smile or greet you.
i must share this one pretty scary experience, not to discredit the hotel but hope if only they read my review it will be as an input for them to improve their service. One morning me & my friend were woke up by a noise came from the door, turn out someone was trying to enter our room, perhaps he/she got the wrong room, we weren't sure. however, that person coerced the door but couldn't made it in as the door was luckily locked from inside. i called out the operator and tell them what happened, the respond i got was only OK. i don't know whether they sent someone upstairs to check or not, but finally that person stopped trying to go in and left. maybe he/she just realize that it was the wrong room? i dont know...
