“A miserable experience.”
Reviewed 27 December 2012 via mobile

Despite the raves about the bed, it was way too soft and really only works for people who sleep on the side.

The most unbearable part was the air conditioning which despite being on the lowest setting spews such hot air it's enough to perspire in winter. Also despite being on a non smoking floor, the central aircon continues to send smoke filled hot air into our room making it difficult for an asthmatic.

Sleeping with the window open to get past the smoke problem was no option either because of noise from the traffic nearby.

Reviewed 3 November 2011

Stayed there three nights in October. Agreed with previous posters

Pros -Good Value, Excellent tasting brekfast which was included, Clean, Newish rooms, Close to New Shopping mall/grocery store

Cons - No doors between the room and bathroom. Only glass doors for toilet and another for shower.

BEWARE Only thing that ruined the stay for me was getting my deposit ($100 cdn) back. When I checked out, the hotelimmediately had someone to check on the room and told me my deposit wouldnt be charged. When I returned back to Canada I saw on my credit card statement they charged me anyways. Called them three times and each time they give me run around excuse that "front office" is processing and will take a month. I am now dealing with VISA to get my deposit back.

The hotel is not close to any subway station. Having said that, taxi in Shanghai is so cheap that we seldom had to use the subway. The hotel room was clean and not too small. There are no doors between the room and the bath therefore it saves up even more space. It is quiet at night. Also appreciate the helpful staff. I would say this is good value for money. You may also want to check out the food stalls downstairs at night.

I didn't see a review of this hotel when I booked it and it looked nice in the pictures. The rooms are newer but are small. There is an elevator and the staff are very friendly. The prices are fantastic compared to traditional hotels in the city. The location is up and coming and near a shopping arcade. I found a nearby cafe with fast internet. The hotel internet is slow. There are no English channels on the T.V. but it does offer modern amenities. The entry is beautiful and it made for a good short stay in Shanghai. It is near public transportation although I took Taxi's for the majority of my travel in Shanghai.
