Having stayed here over Christmas 2012, we were very pleased with the value for money we got at Asset. The cab driver took us straight to the door, and even though the hotel is in second row behind some apartment blocks, it was a big sign telling us we'd arrived at the right address.
The aforementioned buildings do not look very nice, so it is a pleasant surprise to see that the hotel itself is in a nice building behind the others.
Room 310 was perfect for two people - reverse AC-system kept the room warm, the shower was hot and the room clean. Some smell of smoke in the hallway, but we weren't bothered by any inside the room. Wifi is a hassle - only one person can be logged in at the time.
Breakfast is very chinese - a challenge to get used to for westerners. Max 10 minutes walk to the closest Metro station (Dong'an Road), makes this location quite central even though it's fairly far away from the city center's core (the metro system is fantastic and very cheap, so you'll be in the centre in no-time).
Friendly staff, but only one who speaks english. She was very helpful though, lent us umbrellas one day and booked circus tickets for us via telephone the next.
All in all - this is a budget winner, and you get great value for money. But be prepared to use the metro a lot.
