The location of this hotel is great .this hotel is located in city center and in East Nanging road .
The hotel is a bout 5 minutes to metro station and also the big bus station is in beside of this hotel.
Breakfast in this hotel was complete specially fresh carrots juice .
I suggest that don't buy anything from person in Nanging road .the HAN market is in west Nanging road which is a good location for buying souvenir .you can buy all things with 20% price which they say to you.
I will come back to this hotel again

This hotel is located at walking distance from Nanjing Lu pedestrian Street and People´s Square so you can easily move from here to the main attractions in Shanghái. The staff is very kind and most of them speak good english. The food at the restaurant is very good, you can choose either western or chinese options. The rooms are clean and spacious. The rates are reasonable to the level of the place. I have no complaints whatsoever so I highly recommend this hotel if you are going to Shanghái either for business or pleasure.

Stayed here for two nights before joining a Viking Cruise tour. Paid for an Executive room and on arrival found the Executive suite was being renovated. However we were given normal buffet breakfasts plus afternoon tea and "happy hour" in the main bar. It was hard to find out what this included as English was not widely understood/spoken by staff but we were pleased to find it was free drink and snacks between 6 and 8. The room was very comfortable and well appointed although AC was not great. Location is ideal for a tourist, although it appears to be more a business hotel, ten minutes to the Bund, shops very close and all the main tourist places. One incident that did bring our score down was the sight of three men clearly taking prostitutes into the hotel and being approached on the steps from the road outside the main entrance by a local man asking if they wanted more girls! Without that I would gave given 5 stars.

Room Tip: Executive rooms on 23rd floor worth the extra

Room was smelly and hot (no control of temp). Lamps did not work. Mattress hard. Pillows good though. Hot water faucet for sink did not work. Worst though was that I got my doorbell rung at 11:15 pm. NO I did not want a "massage". So security not so great. Do not stay here, do not trust ratings.

It was a rather pleasant hotel to stay in located very closely to The Bund.
The pool was small but empty and the sauna was never busy too. Also helped that the gym and swimming pool facilities stayed open very late!
Rooms were very clean. It was however slightly scary seeing some plug sockets coming off the wall in my room!
The only challenge was the staff speaking very little English!

A fantastic hotel in the nicest area!
Very luxurious with an amazing lobby!
I've stayed here a couple of times and I love it here. It can not be more central. Hotel staff is kind and very helpful and everyone speaks english.
Breakfast is fantastic!
Only thing that bothered me is that, they reserve more than double the amount of what the whole stay will cost on the credit card! This means that on a ten day stay, they reserve up to 2/3 of the available credit on some credit cards. This might be normal in this high class hotel, but it is still quite much.
All in all, it is a fantastic hotel with nice rooms and a great business or VIP lounge.
