I found this hotel on the net and booked it mainly due to the location, right in the middle of Tibet Rd (Xizang South Rd), which is less then 5 minutes stroll to Hua Hai Rd and another 5 minutes on straight up the road to Peoples Sq.
Rooms are moderate and look like any Ramada hotel you would find anywhere, the hotel is managed my the same people as the Ramada in HK, so fits the mould.
The hotel might indicate it's 'international', but comes across more Chinese, hard beds, only a couple of non smoking floors, thousands of Chinese cable channels but just a few English language ones.
Rooms are in reasonable condition, carpets a bit worn but furnishings new. Corridors are dark with wood panelling and carpets appear worn.
The location steals the show for me, so close to everything, nice little antique shopping street across the road, Yu gardens and Xintiandi are walking distance.
I booked with the hotel and rates for a single room were around $70AUD, cheaper than the much nicer Howard Johnson Hua Hai Rd, with a location on par.
