The hotel was located near to the songjiang nanjing mrt station, which was a mrt interchange, making it very convenient. There was also a 24 hour convenience store just beside. Service was excellent! Their English was fair but we had no problems communicating. I also noticed that many of the staff were fluent in Japanese, and that there were quite...

This is a decidedly 3-star hotel, a mix of Spartan/budget with quirky/cool. Some of the basics are OK, but the execution is a bit uneven. The hotel seems to be trying too hard to project a “cool”, creative vibe --- check out some of the oddball room features, and likewise the elaborately decorated corridors with bird murals and artsy sayings...

I stayed at this hotel from 25-29th April 2015 after being very attracted to it's good location. I must agree that the location is great - it is just a stone's throw away from Exit 3 of Songjiang mrt station (which is also an interchange station). The room was clean, comfortable, reasonable in size and the hotel staff were kind...

I hope I can keep this review short (hah!) Notes -- We arrived at 11 am or so and they didn't allow us to check-in until 3 pm. I've never had a hotel enforce the check-in time that strictly. I should mention, however, that we were a group of a little bit less than 10 people, so, maybe some rooms...

This hotel is new and modern. The rooms are big enough for a city hotel, they are new, modern, clean. Only the doors are not very closing due to noise. Whatever is outside you can hear it as it is taking part besides your bed. Take a room at the end of the corridor. Taller guys should take a room...
