I came on a weekend visit to Shanghai during a three week study trip. The hotel is in a perfect location near the East Nanjing Road metro, so not far to walk with cases and good if you want to get to all the shops on Nanjing Road early. 3 of us shared a suite room and the other two in our group shared a standard room (no window). I was very impressed by the suite, we were given some free gifts (bookmark, fruit, fruit peeler) as we had used booking.com to book the room. The living room was spacious and whole suite was clean and nicely presented. The television only has one English channel, the CCTV News channel but that wasn't a problem for us. The view from the window of the suite was quite good. There was free wifi in the room, but this was sporadic and took a while to load things. When we went to see the other room it was down a dark and dingy corridor and the room was just as dark, but it had all the basic amenities so there was nothing to complain about. Plenty of places to eat nearby and a nice café in the hotel lobby too, again as we had booked with booking.com we received vouchers for a breakfast meal deal, a choice of bread, meat eggs and drink for 35RMB if I remember correctly, and the food was delicious! The only problem that we had with the hotel is on the last day, the receptionists refused to let us keep our cases in the luggage room whilst we went around Shanghai, because of the "police". This was resolved by the friendly concierges, who eventually sorted the problem out and let us leave our cases there. When we returned they helped us with the luggage and sorted out a taxi for us to Hongqiao train station. If I am in Shanghai again I would stay here as it is good value for what you get.
