Reviewed 15 October 2012

spaciuos and unfortunately worn down appartments. i don't think anybody would like to use the kitchen equipments...but to cool some drinks it is enough. the building is really elderly and for china that is an issue...it just doesn't feel really comfortable. bed chinese hard and big old tv...but, it is value for money when comparing other choices in that area.

Reviewed 25 November 2011

Stayed around 10 days in this service apartment. Location is actually good, next to Lousanguan Rd metro station, in metro line 2 in Shanghai. A lot of eateries around this service apartment. The room is quite spacious with a standard service apartment equipment like fridge, a sofa. No cooking utensils. The bed is very bad, it is very hard and not convenient. TV has international channel such as CNN and BBC but very bad reception. Free broadband internet. If you are a foreigner and do not speak Mandarin at all, it will be very difficult to stay in this hotel because the receptionists and the hotel staff do not speak English, only a little English and you will have language barriers speaking to them. If you do speak Mandarin, then this service apartment might be off interest, because it is value for money and the location is great, only if you don't mind sleeping in a hard bed.

The good part about the stay was the location, just above a metro station and very close to shops and restaurants. The rooms were clean and well appointed but very small. Cabel Tv included BBC in English and the room also had free wired internet.

The room was quite small and the arm chair was wedged between the bed and the bathroom door so the door would only open partially. If we wanted to open it fully, we had to move the arm chair to the centre of the room. This was an issue as we had a small baby with us and free access to the bathroom was needed. When asked for another room, we were told that it wasnt available.

Also, the main reason we had booked a service apartment instead of a hotel room was due to access to kitchen. I am a vegetarian and wanted to cook in case I did not find anything appropriate to eat outside. Also with a small baby, I needed a hob to sterlize his bottles and also to make some baby food for him. The room had a functional fridge and a kettle but the hob was disconnected. It took us a while to get our message accross to the hotel staff that we neeed the hob or in case that wasnt possible, at least a microwave. We were told that due to health and safety issues, they could not provode us anything. It was really disappointing for us as we needed to sterilize bottles and if we had to stay in a hotel room we could have chosen any other location closer to Nanjing road.

The hotel staff didnt spaek any English and most of our communication was by drawing on a piece of paper or finding someone on the street who could speak English and write a message in Chinese that we could show the hotel staff.

The beds were extremely hard and all mornings we woke up with a back ache
