“This place is a dump. Stay away!!”
Reviewed 26 September 2010

I have travelled extensively in Asia so know what to expect . This place is awful. The staff are rude. The beds are hard as rock and the breakfast is inedible. They wouldn't even mind my bags for 2 hours. Find somewhere else!!!!

The room was comfortable but as in my last review the room wreaked of nicotine and they also didn't provide bottled drinking water.

  • Liked — It's location near shopping malls and The Bund.
  • Disliked — Room wreaked of nicotine.

My friends and I saw the hotel in the internet and booked online. We arrived at 12mn at Pudong Airport. We took the cab from there to the hotel which caused 200 yuan. The cab drivers had a hard time finding it. From the main street, you still need to go inside a small street to get to the hotel. The receptionists do not speak English at all. But they tried so much to communicate with us and to be as accommodating as possible despite the language barrier. We found the rooms very nice for the price we paid. (Hint: The room rates are cheaper if you book it online vs if you are a walk-in client.) It was quite cold though. I think there is no centralized heater and we were there in January. There were thick blankets but we found this out only the next day as it were kept in the cabinet and we did not check when we arrived. The location is very nice. You can walk to the Bund and Yu Yuan Gardens. Though it is quite difficult to get a cab to bring you to the hotel once you go farther (e.g. Oriental TV Tower, etc). Its also difficult to get a cab from your hotel to go to other places. We almost did not make it to our train ride to Beijing.

  • Liked — The location - it is walking distance to the Bund and Yu Yuan Gardens; Very affordable
  • Disliked — Difficult to take a cab to and from the hotel

This hotel is charming. The only problem was the bed was the hardest one we had on our whole trip. We got an extra comforter to help a little but it was sooo hard. The hotel does not have internet either. The staff were very friendly and the location cannot be beat. It is just off the Bund. We went for the deluxe room for $33 a night. This price for a hotel in Shanghai is amazing. We had foot massages every night for just over $5.00 and beers from the fridge in the lobby were 62 cents.

  • Liked — The location and the price
  • Disliked — The bed was rock hard
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring a pad to sleep on and this is perfect for the budget minded traveler.
