good hotel moderately priced but below the 5* rated hotels in china.
rooms are spacious and comfortable.
breakfast selection could be better for european taste.
the obvious weakness is lack of wifi in hotel lobby.
good location - close to Pudong.
shopping mall just right in front of hotel.

I´ve been at this hotel on a business trip for four nights. The staff was really friendly, spoke a god english. They even made it possible for me that although my room was not prepared yet (I arrived at 9am) I received the keys to another room to take a shower and switched the rooms in the evening.
The breakfast is ok but more asian than western style.
You should really try the restaurants for Bejing duck or a good steak and pizza at the italian restaurant.

Room Tip: the higher the floor the better is the view of the skyline

I have been at this hotel before and in my mind it needs renovating and upgrading. Got a very small room which I changed the next day. They sell this as a 5 star hotel and I dont agree - far from it. Location is good for business. However, next time in Shanghani I will check in on a different hotel.

I stayed as part of a holiday rather than a business trip and chose this hotel due to location.
Overall the hotel was good - a lot cheaper than the usual suspects (Hilton etc) but I suspect the standard was as good. I'd recommend upgrading to the breakfast rate on check in - the range is good and it is a good deal.
I stayed over Christmas and was welcome by a line up of festive characters on Christmas Eve which was great fun! The concierge was very helpful in overcoming our transport challenges too.
