Reviewed 18 January 2014

This hotel is really well located near line 2 Jing An Temple.
The rooms are a little bit old but clean, so it is ok for the price.
The staff don t speak good english but is very helpfull.
Maybe a good choice for a reasonnable budget.

Room Tip: good location

I have been staying in 2013 several times for several weeks in the world union serviced apartments
+ great location near Jing'an temple on metro line 2 ( direct to both airports) and many nice restaurants around
+ excellent value for money for the large space, room, kitchen, sleeping and incl. wifi
+ very helpfull service From the reception on 13 floor as Well as the daily room service
- some apartments need some renovations, towels (daily refreshed) are sometimes heavily used and mattresses are Chinese hard,
+/- in summer it can be hot on the sunny side and in winter cold on the other side

It is a good value for money choice in the center of Shanghai

Room Tip: It is always very full, sold out every night, so no ways to be too picky on the room... In winter be...

This studios would be a great place, if they just decide to clean it and change things full of stains - the carpet in the corridor, you don't even understand what was the original color.
It's China, get used to it: a Skyscraper with luxury decoration, after 5 or 10 years is like a building for poor people in a suburban area of Calcutta, if the owner doesn't want to spend one dollar in maintenance. Mattresses are hard (chinese standard), sheets very old.
The view is great, but the windows are really dirty. For almost 90 USD (the upgrade, not the basic studio - this is my advice, I tried both), that's what you get. Mind the mould in the shower, too!

We stayed here for two weeks, while visiting Shanghai. It's in an excellent location, just a few minutes walk from the Metro station, large shopping mall and many shops, restaurants and bars. the facilities were a little worn and dated, but very clean and the staff were very helpful. There's a free "wash and dry" laundry service, with ironing and dry-cleaning also available. The only drawbacks were that the washing machine and air-con only had instructions in Chinese.
The room was very spacious, with a small kitchen and a dining table/desk with stationary provided, should you require it.
I would highly recommend it as either a base for exploring or if there on business. Great value for money.

The only thing I dont like is the AC for heating, we were in shanghai during the Chinese new year, it was cold, but the AC in the room seems not working well, hope they could change to central heating system.

But there are so many things I like about this hotel.
*The price, its hard to find a hotel like this in this very central location, it is literally right across the road of Jing'an Temple and 2 metro stations; and the Metro Line 2 can get to both airport (Pu'dong and Hong'qiao), and also the train station! I really recommend to take the metro rather than taxi, it only cost 7 RMB to Pudong airport, compared 200 RMB by taxi...
If you carry a heavy luggage, take the Jing'an temple station(line 2) exit 3 ( maybe, kinda forgot), the one to the JiuGuang Mall(久光百货),there are escalators.

Taxi drivers dont know about this hotel, because it is more like a local run service apartment, there are actually 3 service apartments in the building, the reception for World Union Cosmo is at floor 16.

*The location, perfect!!!!! line 2 and line 7 is less than 5 min walk, and there are two great (but expensive) malls near by, JiuGuang(久光百货) and Rui'ou (芮欧百货),I like to go to Rui'ou mall, their B2 level is food court, so many yummy foods there, including my fav fried dumpling Xiao Yang Sheng Jian (小杨生煎)。

and yes you have to pay a 100 RMB for room key deposit, if you lost it, they will charge you 50 RMB.

every room has a simple kitchen and also washer and drier.

I would totally stay again at this service apartment if they keep the price and quality.

We had an apartment on the 19th floor and found out how central to all our needs that it was and via the tube and busses could go everywhere we wanted and when our feet were sore of a night just across the street was a foot massage place that we both enjoyed ordered an inhouse breakfast for 1 and started us for the day and we picked up local food as we tripped around , we found the girls at reception were fantastic and a couple of tv problems which we did all by ourselves were fixed in minutes , they even had a sewing kit to repair a hem .
as our flights were not until night we left our bags there and collected them on the way to the airport, yes the apartment was a little tired , but we only wanted it for sleeping so next time we are in Shanghai we know where we will be staying .

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room and on the south side we think .
