Perhaps some of the earlier reviews have been coated with a bit too much sugar. Asset doesn't have much going for it, but also, doesn't have much going against it. its a small hotel on wanping road, in the southern part of the city, far away from the downtown area of shanghai. Hence, we're talking of 30 to 45 minutes commuting everyday, up and down. this isn't too bad a deal if you're a tourist willing to take the metro or the bus, as thats the best way to see the city, but hey, this point doesn't directly be awarded to the hotel, its just one of those ancillary things.
Anyway, the breakfast is bleak, but at least its there, unlike a lot of other places in china.
the staff is helpful, although they sometimes don't understand what you're saying, and still say yes, later to screw up.
To summarise, asset is an average hotel situated far from the main attractions of the city. Choose this hotel if you're on a tight budget, otherwise look for something else which may cost a little more, but is closer to where the action is.More
