The last time I visited this hotel was in early 2009 and found it perfectly acceptable. Back then, the rooms were clean and everything just seemed OK. Not great, but okay. Price wise, it was good back then and given its location, which is 10 mins walk from Xintiandi, was perfect for my objectives.
Fast forward to 2013. I visited this hotel again thinking that I was pretty much going to see the same thing. A decent hotel in a convenient location that charges the right price.
This is what Chinese management can do to do property. I think the property had received no maintenance since my last visit and everything began to fall apart. The rooms look dirty and the bathroom even more so. Towels I was given looked more grey than white and had holes in them. Carpet looked black to me and I was concerned if the sheets were clean.
I asked for a King bed and they gave me more than that. They had 2 standards put together and so it was impossible to sleep in the middle. Wow!
Front desk staff looked unprofessional. What uniform?????
Location stays the same and that deserves one star, as for the price. I will not go back to this hotel unless I am broke.
