“Average Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

I spent three nights at the Kingswell for business in Shanghai. I found the hotel average in terms of ambiance, service, room quality, food quality. The only problems encountered was water not draining in the tub. Would I stay here again for business? Yes as the value ($100 per night) was reasonable and it was a few blocks from work.

This hotel is very clean and the breakfast is great. Rude receptionist but when I wrote that in a review form they manager send me a apology email...so i think that's ok. After trying many hotels around China..i recomand this hotel wich is perfect for a good night sleep after walking around in Shanghai. Also, it have a great location next to a metro station on a direct line to city centre.

Room Tip: The rooms not have much of a view.

Spacious room and very close to the metro station Tongji university (2 minute walk).
Breakfast is ok but nothing special.
Only front desk staff speak English.
The fitness room looks outdated.

Wifi does not work properly.

Nice, clean, modern room with good space. The obligatory hard-as-rock mattress was better than some of the others we had in other places. The front desk staff was really nice and could speak English, and the rest of the staff was friendly and helped us take care of a few odds and ends like getting a Chinese sim card for our phone and sending a package. The Western Breakfast wasn't very Western, but it was pretty good. The subway line 10 is very convenient to this location.

Would definitely stay here again.

All beds in China are apparently hard as a rock, so I can't fault Days Hotel for the hard mattress. But it was a very clean hotel, service was good, the hotel food was good, and it is very close to Tongji University and the Metro station. My room was very large, very comfortable. There was a good bit of construction noise outside, but that seems to be the norm in Shanghai.

Downside: high speed internet was not very reliable, and it was not wireless.

I stayed in this hotel while attending a conference at Tongji University. Having read the reviews here I was prepared for a disappointing experience, however that was not the case at all. The hotel is smart, clean and staff have been friendly, and the decor seems to be fresh. The 4 star rating is appropriate and what one would expect of China. (I've stayed in other hotels in Shanghai, Beijing, Wuhan, Hangzhou and Nanjing). I stayed in a single room on floor 6. Location-wise it is brilliant for Tongji University, and while there are limited shopping/eating experiences nearby the Metro line 10 is a very short walk away on Siping Road. The comments below about it being marooned in a wasteland of construction are also not true, not now. The pace of development in Shanghai is such that one cannot rely on reports like this, and buildings appear and disappear. This has been especially the case this year with the EXPO.

My father stayed here for two nights in Nov 2009. On the second day, I drove there to take my father to a hospital nearby for a medical check. I was considering to extend for another night, so I wanted to make a quick park-n-extend.

Their security guard created so many request on my parking. I was in a hurry and muttered that it was a waste of my time. That security guard put his face against mine and shouted at me. He even invited me to make complaint on him. I was shocked. I asked their duty manager to deal with this matter and requested an apology. The security guard evaded into their office and never refused to come out again. The duty manager failed to give any acceptable explanation on this matter.

I will never recommend this hotel. That is not a security guard. I think it is not secure dealing with them anyway.

The security guard is Sammy Zhu and the duty manager Andy Qian.
