CHECK-IN: The whole process took quite fast. My company secretary booked this hotel for RMB488 per night.
ROOM: Above average for a 3-star hotel. Have all the amenities you needed. Disposable slipper, shoe shine, tooth brush, cotton bud, etc. Towels are clean. No complimentary bottled water but there is a water dispenser in the room. Overall, 4 out 5 for the room cleanliness.
INTERNET: No complimentary internet. They charge RMB50/24 hours. However, you can walk to the nearest internet cafe next door for RMB4 an hour. They allow you to use your own laptop.
LOCATION: Not too central. Located in Pudong, convenient for those who wants access to New Shanghai International Expo Center which is why I was there for anyway. There are MacDonalds, Pizza Hut, Noshinoya, etc 100meters away from the hotel. Intercontinental Pudong is right opposite the hotel.
BREAKFAST: Not included with the room and cost RMB38/person which I think it is a rip-off.
1) There are construction works going on nearby, right in front of the hotel. The first night was a nightmare. Need earplugs to sleep. I check out and switched to Pudong Shangri-La on the third day (although I am supposed to stay here for 5 days).
2) SPA: Avoid it. It is a [--] brothel. I walked in and asked about the massage and prices. Instead of getting a response, I was directed to the shower area. Took shower, put on robe supplied by the spa and was directed to a room with a few foot-reflexology-looking chairs and a big plasma TV with no massage bed. I told the waiter who brought me drinks that I want body massage not foot reflexology. He do not seems to understand much English and a minute later the manager appeared and asked if it is my first time there. I said yes and he explained that the spa offers no massage service only SEX. I was ready to storm the hell out of that place and he keep insisting that I try their service. After attempting a few times, the manager finally gave up. I put back my own clothes and was all ready to leave that place. I was asked to pay RMB100 for the bloody shower which no one tells me that it cost RMB100. I put on a good show of arguement in the spa entrance which might have scared other guests away. So I finally throw a RMB50 bill and walk out of that place.
The hotel room is okay. The so called 'spa' makes me feel so disgusted that I have decided not to return to this hotel again.
