“More than we expected”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

Very good location - Right in front of People's Square plus the next corned is Pedestrian Nanjing Road East.

We arrived in Shanghai around 12:30am and we were able to checked in as a receptionist waited for us -- made a reservation in Booking dot com.

We really liked the Edwardian style of the building, we picked this hotel specifically to experience that and it was not a let down. Dimly lit halls with intricate colorful reliefs on the ceiling.

The halls though had this musky smell, but it did not bother me. The rooms we had were really pleasing -- we expected less since we are paying a very cheap price but it did not compromise. Comfy beds, clean bathrooms and complimentary drinks.

We ate breakfast in Radisson which is next door, since one of my companion wanted a larger choice of food in the buffet.

It's not a top hotel but it's better than any hotel you'll be paying for the same price.

Room Tip: Book a month early in booking sites -- they're real!

excellent location- right next to metro, bus stop, and the main station for the big bus tour. china-sss bus tour also comes here. across the street form peoples square and east nanjing street. rooms were nice, classic. they turn off their central AC at night, so even if you have your room AC control set to cool, it still gives out hot air. i don't know whether this is a curiosity of all china hotels, because i encountered the same in beijing and even on the sleeper train!!!!

Room Tip: ask for non-smoking if don't smoke

Reviewed 10 April 2011

I try to stay optimistic and positive about budget hotels, but this was just gross. We switched rooms twice and they all smelled like ashtrays, the staff was not very friendly, the coffee tasted like dirt (literally), and I wouldn't risk eating here unless I was trapped and my survival depended on it. They wouldn't bring us tp and our clothes came back looking dirtier than when we sent them. You get what you pay for and in this case you pay for location and a place to leave your stuff. I'd stay by the Bund or the French Concession next time.

Room Tip: avoid this hotel if you want a nice room
