Using a booking agent (local) I was offered this hotel and because of the fair price, I confirmed the booking. No regrets whatsoever.
The location is perfect, very close to Yu garden (a must see) and nearby the Bund (another must).
Reception was friendly and quick. The staff from doorman to waiter, to cleaner, all very friendly.
The room was nice and comfortable, good in size with a nice free standing bath tub as well as shower. That was separated by a glass wall from the bedroom section, where there also was a convenient desk and small couch/table. The bed was good, even as the linen.
Breakfast was good too, enough variation in cold and warm. Seen the many meetings outside the hotel, I actually have not used the restaurants in the hotel. Had once room service and that meal was good too.
When I need to make a remark, or actually two, it would be that the internet signal was not very strong for wireless. That could be improved. The other was that, when I had to leave for 2 nights Beijing, and returned, the whole checking-in procedure needed to be repeated again. One did not use any of the previous recorded data. But that happened to me in more places.
I certainly would use this hotel again (when next also an offer applies :-)
