This is a huge busy hotel, very centrally located, close to simply everywhere. It sits in the busy nanjing road, and right next to people's square, green spacious area with some cafe's and a subway station. beautiful place!
We had some expectations, some were met, some were not! We arrived in a very busy time, summer season, plus expo was on. Thus the hotel had probably many visitors to entertain. We informed the hotel that we were on our honeymoon, we expected some special considerations, there wasn't.
We booked a grand deluxe, on the 36th floor, overlooking the bund. The view was breath-taking! The rooms are highly trendy.. nice to look at, but can get a wee bit impractical. Lifts were a headache, we have to take two different lifts to get to our room on the 36th foor. I think it's how the lay out of the hotel is. Plus, It's quite a busy hotel, I didn't particularly enjoy bumping into people from all walks of life in the 2 lift journey to and from my room.
The internet charge is ridiculous, who charges for internet in today's time? quite a disappointment! Fortunately, there is a costa just outside the hotel with free wi-fi.
Breakfast area was HUGE. The buffet was massive, good but not excellent. We were disappointed the fruit section was not well maintained. Fruits were not always cut, you needed to call someone. My husband once wanted some pineapple displayed but uncut, the reply was "I don't know where the person is, do you want pineapple juice instead?"
Staff were of great help!
For the size of the hotel and the number of guests, I think the management are doing a pretty good job.
