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).

Check the room before you check in. The desk tried to foist off a windowless room on 3rd floor with a king and a cot...we were supposed to get a standard (twins) and an extra bed. The windows were blocked off with opaque plexiglass to obscure the fact that there was a dump just outside...literally. We refused these rooms, and they put us and our friends on the 13th and 14th floors, which were tolerably above the construction fray surrounding the place and the dump.
Most important about location: Cabs refused to take us there. On two occasions, I refused to get out of a cab, so he took me and two young girls there, but on 3 other occasions, they simply refused to go there...most likely because it is completely surrounded by construction projects as city gets ready for next year's World Fair.
Place left a bad taste because of staff's antics.
Have to pay 35Yuan ($5) a day fro internet.

Reviewed 28 April 2009

We were booked here for four nights in mid-April. There was an open sewer line next to the hotel, and the windows were not soundproof so sleeping with earplugs was the only way to drown out the traffic noise. It's in the middle of a construction zone and the immediate neighborhood didn't leave me safe walking home at night unless I was with a large group of people.
The room was large but dirty- the walls were smudged, the carpet stained. Bathroom towels and bathmat had large holes and were fraying. The pot provided to boilwater had rusty coils. Bed were hard as rock slabs.
Breakfast buffet was adequate. The front desk could not give us two room keys. Internet cost money to have access in the room and didn't always work. There was a free business center with internet access on four computers.
In a word, don't be fooled by location- go someplace else.
