This is a great 4star hotel in a fantastic location - 2min from Yu Yuan metro station ( intersection of 2 lines ), 5min from Yu Gardens, 15min from the Bund. Direct access to Hongqiao Airport and train station ( do take a 30min G train trip to Suzhou to see the Humble Administrator's Garden - it's fantastic! ).
We stayed in the King Executive City View room the 11th floor and it was beautiful with great views towards Pudong in the east and city centre to the north ( Renmin Rd ). It was very nicely furnished, with huge soft bed, separate sofa/sitting and desk area, free wi-fi, free minibar with soft drinks and cookies, espresso coffee maker, bathrobes, slippers and a very nice strong rain/dual shower in the bathroom ( plus a circular bath ). Breakfast was included in the rate and it was very good with excellent choice of both western and chinese food. The breakfast room is a bit small but very elegant and there is a nice terrace outside where you can eat as well. The lobby is small but classy and the check-in/out was smooth and non-problematic.
If I ever visit Shanghai again, I will definitely consider staying at SSAW again. It's was a great experience.
