I stayed in this hotel with my parents from Sept 10 to Sept 17, 2011. Initially we only booked the first three nights (got a promotion discount when I booked it) but eventually we decided to stay in this hotel for the remaining four nights. The hotel is excellent, and we love the fact that the metro is just a stone-throw from the hotel (really really close to the hotel, let me emphasize). The best thing about the hotel is that all the stuff were so friendly! They were very helpful, and my parents and I kept telling each other that it must be the training department that did such a good job in training their people to make us feel so welcome. The contrast is so apparent when we visited some high end restaurants in Shanghai - those waiters and waitresses had bad attitude! But not in this hotel - the stuff always gave us big smile and they speak good English!
The only complaint that I have is the neighborhood - it is close to the Bund, but not in the Bund. The surronding neighborhood is a bit doggy. We could not find a decent restaurant within walking distance. However, the front desk did point us to nice restaurants in the neighborhood and the cab ride only took 5 minutes. Anyway, dining out is not a problem because we always were out and about.
I would recommend this hotel - very comfortable beds, and nice bathroom! Internet is not free which is a shame, but we can use the computers for free in the back of the lobby, which was good enough since we were not in the room most of the time.
