“No AC in the night”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Stayed during summer, complaint that AC is not working during the night. After four day in the row complaint, the staff told that the hotel is saving money by stop the AC during the night, and he can not do anything about it.

The room is very nice decorated and clean. The bed is comfortable and big enough for two people to rest and making something they love. There is a refrigerator in the room and all foods and drinks are free. Very like it!! The gym and breakfast is also very good.

Probably the only sensible place to stay if you visit Tongji University.
Also it's very close to a metro station that takes you all the way to Hongqiao airport.
It might not compare so favourably with hotels in other big Asian cities but for a relatively obscure area of Shanghai I was pleasantly surprised (and I wasn't paying either).
Staff are helpful and speak English well enough. Breakfast has adequate western stuff (cereals, toast etc) and you won't go hungry. Room is well equipped and comfortable.
Downsides: The wifi keeps disconnecting, the bed is the stiffest I ever experienced and the traffic noise (e.g. supposedly banned use of horns by lorries) even at the highest floor gets through the single-glazed windows easily. So bring earplugs.
Never needed to try the aircon/heating.

I spent a week in Kingswell Hotel and I'm satysfied with everything. The hotel is conveniently located near metro station. It is clean, plenty of everything in the room, confortable bed.
The stuff speaks English well enough to understand, if there are unconveniences.
The breakfast is REALLY RICH. You can try Chinese food or opt for European variant.
The tea served is Lipton, though, so drink coffee in the morning =))) A special pleasure for me were the plates with different decoration in Chinese style.
I'm really happy, that I stayed at Kingswell hotel.

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.
