To get to the hotel take the Maglev train from Pudong Airport (PVG) to Longyang Road Station. At Longyang Road Station transfer to subway line 2 and get off at East Nanjing Road Station. When you exit East Nanjing Road Station make a right, heading east, until you reach Jiangxi Road. Head north on Jiangxi road until you reach Dianchi Road. Make a right on Dianchi Road to go east toward the hotel. You should see it after a couple blocks. (It's behind the very large Peace Hotel) This is about a ten minute walk.
I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend, mom, and brother (2 rooms for the four of us).
I absolutely loved the bathrooms because they were clean, modern, and had great showers but the bathroom's door was transparent so that may be a problem for some guests. We had basic rooms (the cheapest) and they were a fair size with large beds. The rooms have no windows but if you're only in the hotel to sleep and gone for the most part this shouldn't really be a problem.
The interior decoration of the hotel is vintage, funky, and kind of has a 1970's feel to it.
The location of the hotel is excellent because it's a 5 minute walk to the Bund, is close to the subway, and is close to the famous East Nanjing Road.
The staff has moderate English skills and is generally friendly and helpful.
This is not a luxury hotel if that is what you're looking for but it's cute, basic, and great if you're on a budget. I recommend it for students, couples, and quick travelers.
The hotel offers free wi-fi, free tea bags, free local phone service, free TV, and free bottled water.
The only complaint I have about the hotel is the humidity in the rooms. My mum and brother were in a room on the second floor and the AC seemed to work fine in their room so humidity wasn't really a problem for them but for my boyfriend and I it was. We had a room on the 4th floor and the humidity was bothersome there because the AC seemed to loose strength at certain times during the night which would make the room somewhat humid. It wasn't horrible but it has the potential to interrupt your sleep on really hot/humid days.
