“Best location hotel”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

Visited shanghai on may 2012. Did not have to spend 300 or so cny for airport transport to city from terminal 2 of hongqia airport. Just took the subway for 5 cny and got off the yuyuan station and walk for 100-150 meters to this great hotel.wow what savings .the hotel is also around 300 meters from the yuyuan gardens a major tourist must go, no need to take taxi to move around city just take subway and save on transport cost while going around this great city.highly recomend staying in this hotel. The service is also great they try to please guests in anyway they can . Food is also great ,but restaurant staff could do better in serving the food of the menu (the only minus )of this hotel

The newly renovated hotel was a pleasure to be in! It's located in walking distance of the main attractions like Yu Yuan Garden, the Bund or People's Square. Staff was very friendly and attentive, rooms clean and spaceous and the beds the perfect fit of stiff, but not to hard! The breakfast is a perfect deal and weather permitting it's even possible to dine out on the balcony. The free minibar (with soft drinks) rounds up the very positive impression. Was staying there for at an introducional rate - a great deal!

Do not go by the external facade-it hides a very good city boutique hotel!
It is very conveniently located-within a walking distance of the famous Bund,very close to the subway and cabs are always parked outside the hotel.
The lobby and reception area are very good and provide internet facilities.
The rooms are spacious ,well arranged and comfortable.The bed is a bit too soft and could have done with a firm pillow.Washrooms are well provided and clean with a large tub.
There is a coffee brewing machine and safe provided.
The breakfast area is well laid out but the breakfast spread is limited.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and quite a few can speak English.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a suite, for reason unknown to us!Try your luck!

One moment I arrived at the hotel and saw its exterior, I cast doubt on my selection as it looks a bit rundown. But once I entered the hotel lobby, I was very impressed with its beautiful design at the lobby. The guest room is very well-appointed including Italian coffee brewing machine, rain shower and an open view of the city center. The bed is very comfortable with crispy clean liens ( due to environmental reason, the hotel only changes the linens every tree dys unless you make special request).
Mr Ju from the concierge desk was extremely helpful in helping me with the directions for my visit to the heritage homes. Jason from the front desk impressed me with his ability to help you in every aspect during my stay and his ability in handling multiple inquiries at the sae time.
My only negative remark I have is the remark on its introduction on the web about relaxing at its spa when it is yet being built.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the city center view

This hotel is near the subway station and near yuyuan garden. The service is fine but the restaurant staff needs improvement,such as proper way to serve the food of the menu.aside from that minor flow ,this hotel I will go back to on my next visit.

Most of the reviewers agree that the location was good but may I remind you that their bed linen was exceptional. After a long day of walking, a good shower with plenty of hot water, a drink in hand, sit on the wide window sill admiring the lit up buildings of the city and then into a comfortable bed and cool, crisp bed linens, a good night's rest is ensured.
The wooden floor was a welcoming change to stained carpets. The room was very cosy and clean. The downside was the extra slim and small wardrobes. You have to hang your clothes at a titled angle.
The water features outside the breakfast room windows were very soothing. Alternatively you could go onto the terrace to admire the city buildings as you breakfast in leisure. The spread was good with decent choices which have been arranged neatly and orderly. We enjoyed our breakfast there.
The staff were very helpful land pleasant. Every time I go in and out of the hotel there's always a couple of taxi waiting outside although you could walk 15 minutes to the main shopping area for meals or to explore the old Shanghai streets which we did and would recommend.
We stayed in 4 hotels 5 different rooms in 4 cities/towns and reckoned that this is the best of the lot.

Room Tip: go for a higher floor, the noon smoking rooms are on the 16 and 17/f
