I stayed in Jin Jiang for 4 nights and I am very satisfied with the experience. Location is at the edge of French concession, in which I was nto particularly interested but the intersection of two metro lines is nearby and it is a very short ride to the Bund or People's square, for example. The Cathay Garden building is nice and the rooms are very spacious, there is enough of space for rest and work, you have complimetary tea bags, tea pot, cups and kettle to make the tea. Bathroom is kept clean and has both shower and a bathtub.
Wifi internet comes for an extra charge of 900 RMB per day. Drinks int he lobby are also overpriced, prices are not displayed so it is better to check in advance if you want to order anything there.
I arrived aroyund 9 am in the mornign and the check in is at 2pm, but they arranged a room for me at 10 pm, which was great, especially after 12 hours flight.
Warning: I was placed in the non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor. There signs everywhere on this floor (5th) that non-smoking rules have to be strictly observed. When I asked the reception staff is it possible to move to a smoking room they said: we will just bring you an ashtray in the room. Was not a problem for me, but beware: if you ask for a non-smoking room you can end up in a 'non-smoking room' which will stink of smoke. In my experience, it is a problem with most of hotels in China.
Breakfast buffet included in the room price is lavish and has many choices of european, chinese, japanese and even indian food. You also get a big coffee or teapot at your table.
In general, very standard high quality hotel. Not cheap, but worth the price.
