I travel to China often, Shanghai in particular. The hugely discounted online prices attracted me to this hotel....there is a reason the prices are so discounted! Upon arrival at the hotel, it seemed like a very average hotel (definitely not a 4 star like it claims!) but pleasant enough. Front desk staff spoke little english, the first room they gave me had suffered a flood and smelled of damp and smoke (despite requesting a smoking room) - the second room i was given was small and the carpet was filthy, however, this seemed to typical of the hotel standard!
As an english speaking business traveller, the hotel does not meet needs - i tried 4 times to retrieve a fax that had been sent to me, being sent from front desk to concierge to business centre and back to front desk before I got it. Internet is free though...although not wireless.
Very few of the staff speak english and all are hugely incompetent in my experience.
I paid £45 per night which is great for Shanghai, however, in future i will pay the extra and stay somewhere hassle free!
