“Beware...”
Reviewed 30 January 2009

A group of us stayed for two nights in December when it was very cold outside and inside the hotel--7 degrees Centigrade. Upon calling the front desk they told me that they do not have heat. Turns out they turned off their heat because their occupancy level was low. They offered us extra blankets which meant you had to stay in bed and wake up to the frigid cold in the morning. This shows that they do not care about our comfort, just their pocketbooks. This is suppose to be a 4 Star hotel, however, I felt we received the service of a 2 Star hotel. Beware, they may turn off their AC in the summer.

Stayed 4 nights whilst at meetings at Tongji University (very close-by). An excellent hotel for this (business) purpose. Not well-located for normal tourism, or access to Shanghai centre. The hotel has good Chinese and Western restaurants, and there are others nearby.
The executive room was comfortable and clean (but the hot water took a few minutes to arrive at the taps!).

Reviewed 23 November 2008

This hotel was booked for us, as part of accomodations for a conference. We were pleasantly surprised, as we didn't know what to expect. It is very similar to an American hotel in terms of room size, cleanliness and services. Though the staff didn't speak alot of English, it was sufficient to address our many questions we had about tourism, meals, check in/out etc. The concierge hailed a taxi for us daily, and told the driver, in Chinese, where we wanted to go. Only thing to know is that the hotel is not near downtown, nor a subway, so taxi is the way to travel. The meal was a Western & Chinese combo buffet. Varied daily. Fine, not incredible, but did the trick. We'd stay here again.
