Magnificent Hotel, Xizang Road South is an excellent location. Very close to Yuyuan Gardens, People square for line 8 & 1 metro, Nanjing road, Bund and the ferry to the pearl tower (2 yuan). The main problem was construction works that went on all night due to road extension. This is beyond the control of the hotel. Please ensure that your room does not face Zixang Road as it is too noisy. I could not sleep for most nights due to noise from Xizang Road and I felt tired throughout my stay at this hotel.
I hated people phoning our room with offers for massage after midnight. I had to complain to reception to stop the calls. The reception was very helpful given their limited command of the English language. They went out of their way to help. Breakfast was horrible. Thank goodness I had taken my own shredded wheat, so I just used their milk. If you like noddles, rice porridge and cabbage for breakfast, welcome aboard! The fruit juice was just coloured water. Not a single fresh fruit was served and yet water melons only cost 1 yuan in the market. The restaurant is closed at 3:pm, which surprised us, we ate out everyday. The internet on 3rd floor is ok. The gym equipment is very old, we never bothered. The bed was so hard, my hips still hurt after 2 weeks. Residents around the hotel were very friendly and always said hello. Do not use the drinks in the fridge. Water is 8 yuan and yet costs 1.50 in the shops. The bathroom has a shower - no bath. It was kept very clean and the water very warm (hot water turns off after 15 minutes of continous us).
