I was taking my son to a competition and decided to stay in a hotel close to the venue. I am a frequent traveler to Shanghai but never stayed anywhere in the Hongkou area because it is just far away from the normal business districts of Pudong and Huangpu. My impression of this hotel is really bland and nothing to shout about. The staffs go about their business just like a person doing their daily job. No smiles. Nothing exciting. The decor is bland. Nothing to write about. The breakfast is not up to par for a 5-star hotel like this. In a word: very forgettable. If you are a business traveller looking for a hotel to sleep in that has clean and comfortable beds then that is fine. If you are looking for a wow factor and ambience you will be hard pressed to find it. The location is also a bit far from the Hongkou Football Stadium and Lu Xun Park which is where everything is happening. It takes 10 mins by taxi to even get to Hongkou Stadium.
