“LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This Hotel is in a very good location , In the Heart of the City , Close to all shopping areas , Nanjing Road , Peoples square , Yuan Garden , Oriental pearl Tower , everyting thing is just 10 -15 minutes drive.

Metro line connectivity is good , the nearest Metro station is just 200 meters away .

But Hotel is not that great , Old Property , Not a good breakfast .

But for the price say $ 55 it was a deal for two people with Breakfast

Room Tip: Don`t take the rooms without window , you will feel suffocated , also pls ensure that the room is o...

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past 3 years.The hotel location is excellent. Just a few blocks from People Square and one block from East Nanjing Road, the very popular shopping and walking street.Walking distance to the bund is less than 10 minutes. Rooms are comfortable and clean Most of the staff spoke at least some English. Breakfast was above average of similar Chinese Hotels, incl. some western dishes (eggs, sausages, toast, etc.). Overall fairly good value for money, especially considering the great location. I sure can recommend that hotel for any traveler looking for a 3 to 4 star hotel in the center of Shanghai!

Room Tip: If you want a cheap, but still comfortable room, use one without a window. More than half of the ro...

This hotel had an excellent location, only a couple of blocks from peoples square, and right near east nanjing road. Walking distance to the bund. It had a nice firm bed, staff spoke English, breakfast was ok- pretty good Chinese breakfast with a couple of western dishes (eggs, sausages, cereal, toast). We thought it was good value for money considering the location. Room was clean and did not smell. Make sure you ask for a non smoking room. Only negatives- lifts were a bit slow, and you could hear people in the hallways, although we never heard anyone in the rooms next door to us. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking when you get there.

Never book through clear trip as they are not directly handling & will advise all the human beings to never go this un civilised hotel, except the location priority, very old hotel & ridiculous staff & maintenance.

Reviewed 4 December 2013

Compared to other hotels of similar price in Shanghai I would say this one is definitely not worth the money. The room was very dark (the window faced onto a high-rising concrete hole letting in no natural light) and the lights were insufficient, making it seem like it was night all the time.
The room also felt damp, it was quite old, the bathroom just wasn't quite as nice and modern as I would have expected.
I was also rather annoyed that the cleaning staff insisted on coming in even when we put the "do not disturb" sign on the door. One time we were in the room sleeping and were woken by someone trying to come into the room. I would have been very scared if I were alone. Other times we left the Do Not Disturb sign on the door, and were angry to see that while we had been out someone had been in the room, having clearly ignored the sign again.

On the up side, it is very central, being one minute (if that) away from the main shopping street, but thats about the only good thing about it.
