“Beautiful rooms and great location”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

This hotel is ideally located from the main shopping street and we found that almost all cab ride ended up costing 14 RMB (a couple dollars). We discovered that Uber was available in Shanghai, so we just ended up calling a private car with our app. It was worth the extra fee, since we often had a hard time getting cabs to stop for us. I believe the metro station is short trek, but we never ended up using mass transit.

Rooms are very nice, clean, and huge with blackout curtains.

There is basically no concierge, so don't arrive expecting the staff to help you book anything. They are nice and try to be helpful, but they're not concierges. There is also no room service.

Water was shut off midstay on my floor and we were moved to another room. This was frustrating and ended up going to front desk, since the luggage cart they promised never arrived.

I would definitely stay here again during my next visit to Shanghai.

Dirty air co. Dusty rooms.
If you played Bioshock then you might like the decor and feel - if not you won't.
Air conditionings a pain - in smoggy city's it's important and when not cleaned it adds to the misery.
Nice staff and cool rooms but ultimately not great. Won't stay again.

A city hotel in a great location (close to Huai Hai Rd, Xintiandi & right next to Fuxing Pk), this boutique hotel is at first charming & decked out in an east meets west style. Its fairly new yet shows signs of wear & tear (wood panelling peeling, bathroom tiles cracking). The hotel is dark & after a while, the mood lighting & fishtanks outside each room seems a little kitschy. Check in was smooth, staff were friendly (some limited English) - you definitely get more out of them if you speak Mandarin. Service although not lacking is efficient but definitely not 5 star standard (no automatic greeting or smiles, bell boys are fiddling with their mobile phones in the lobby). But when you do ask for assistance or help, they are on hand & willing. We were upgraded to a corner room which is larger & had 2 outlooks (one outlook overlooking Fuxing park was refreshing). The blinds were difficult to adjust and very dusty.

The room is large but I found the switches confusing & locating the masterswitch to turn of all lights at bedtime was quite a task. I liked their bedside clock which had a mechanism that projected the time in red light on the ceiling so you could tell the time while lying on the bed & looking up. The bathroom is large but found the water pressure for the shower weak. The toiletries were Locitane. No pool facilities but a small often unused gym. Breakfast is not good. Limited selection & unappetizing. Not your typical 5 star international hotel offering. As I was staying a week, I stopped eating there after the 3rd day. Staff were efficient and helpful when you approached them but overall were indifferent in their attitude.

If you are looking for a business hotel in a convenient location - this hotel is a good option. But I wouldnt stay here unless there was a special promotion (which on this trip - I booked a promotion deal via Travelzoo). Overall I had a pleasant stay - this hotel has the potential to be great but misses the mark.

Awesome hotel in a great location. The hotel is nicely tucked away from the bustling street yet within walking distance to the Huaihai shopping belt. You can walk along the quiet, shading and picturesque Nanchang Road, and discover the many exquisite shops and cafe.

The hotel reception staff are very friendly and helpful, and they speak English. On our arrival, we were surprised that they upgraded our (business) deluxe room to a business suite! (I suspect it's because I'm staying for a night and they have a spare room). The suite is on its top-most 7 floor and it has a awesome panoramic view of the old French concession residences from our super-king size bed. The toilet is as large as the bedroom and there's a small kitchenette (with sink and microwave) along the doorway corridor.

Definitely a great hotel for couples and travelers who would love the quiet and scenic surroundings of the hotel, and within walking distance to Huaihai luxury goods shopping belt, scenic Nanchang Road, Fuxing Park and the XinTiandi (restaurants and cafes).

Family of 4 stayed here in a studio suite for 4 nights.
The hotel is very arty and the rooms are big and very well fitted out. The location within the French concession is fantastic and the current ongoing renovations are hardly noticeable
The only issues here come down to the level of staff service.
Eg room booked for family a 4 only had one bed in it. After discussing with staff got an extra trundle bed and made up a day bed. Initially wanted RMB300 a night but waived this after discussion.
Receptionist tried to overly complicate our airport check in by suggesting emailing details to her. First gave wrong hotel email address and then was unable to process check-in. If she had listened to her customer, who knew what they were doing, it would have saved an hour of holiday time and a lot of angst.
Concierge invariably gave a general impression of a "can't do" attitude. Ie do it yourself. This was unexpected in a hotel of this price.
Overall a lovely hotel with great location but kinks in customer service need ironing out.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights during June 2013 and where very surprised about this beautiful "design" style hotel at these prices. We where upgraded to a suite which was huge, I thing the bathroom alone was approx 40 square meters! Nicely situated next to Fuxing Park and only 100m from one of the main shopping districts of Shanghai! Unfortunately te restaurant was being rebuilt during our stay, so I can not share any comments on the restaurant, but if the quality is in expectation with the actual hotel I am convinced that you will enjoy your stay @ this "boutique/design" hotel

Room Tip: Corner suites are huge, I think about 90 square meters in total

Firstly do not be put off by the current hotel reception area which is small, it’s while the front of the hotel is being renovated. Due to delayed flights I arrived at 5am but the even then the check in was quick and simple.
This is probably one of the biggest rooms I have ever had in a hotel. On top of that, the bathroom was even bigger. Lovely rain fall shower and a big bath which can be a jacuzzi also. There is also a fish tank outside your room!
The bedroom is spacious with a big TV at the end of the bed and on the reverse side there is a selection of bottled spirits. There is an enclosed balcony with a long settee to lie on. But what really made this room different was the office area. There was a big desk, good WiFi access, a desk draw filled with all those little accessories, but to top it all there was also a printer!
Location wise it’s a short 5 minute walk to the restaurants and bars in Xintiandi. If you are a European guy on your own walking around this area in the evening you will be approached, so be aware.
I did not use the bar at night but did get breakfast. Good selection, but leave yourself time because its cooked to order and not quick. The waiters will push their French toast which is extremely good, but filling so don’t have with other food as well.
Only slight negative is that the rooms are quite dark, even with all the lights on.
