Although little English is spoken, the staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms and beds are large and comfortable. Bathrooms ar extremely clean and the towels are huge. The only negative is that the carpets need a good shampoo and clean. Breakfast is plentiful and has both Chinese and Western breakfasts. The surrounding shops are value for money. A particular feature...

Maybe I expected too much, but the hotel is pretty average. It is a decent place to sleep over, but I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay. Not too clean, the breakfast is not something I would want to have to often. Overall, ended up leaving it after one night, and switched to another hotel. Yeah, staff on the...

Like what others said below, there were cards under your hotel door everyday with women offering massages.... the front desk staff were helpful on more than one occasion. They helped when we needed assistance telling the cab driver where we wanted to go and ordering cabs. The best help was in the "restaurant" (it was a room with tables and...

Hotel rooms were clean on arrival - but sheets were not changed during our stay (we tested) and towels were only folded and put back even if they were left on the floor. They would simply make the bed and leave. The room I was in had a kitchenette - with no utensils. Kettle but not mugs. Nothing to cook...

This hotel needs work to bring it up to standard. The bathroom in my room looks unfinished, there is a bath faucet but no bath! No hair dryer even though my colleague has one (and she has a washing machine!?) the bed is extremely hard, good if you like that but I would bring topper pad if you are not...

Never expect too much from a service apartment. The front desk gave me a non-smoking room by conducting a smoke eliminating process in a smoking room, but he gave a real non-smoking room to a Japanese couple in front of me. Ridiculous! Room was just okay for the price. They use a both shampoo-body-wash type cleanser and a lamp was...

Loved this hotel, we spent 3 nights here. It was very central, clean, the staff were most helpful. The breakfast was great so much to choose from. A good coffe is attached to the hotel but is a little pricie

We stayed here because of two main reasons: 1. Location, it is on line 2 and only about 4 stops from Hongqiao airport, which makes it very convenient and time saving when you have an early flight. It takes only about 20 minutes from the hotel to the airport via metro. 2. Value, we got a promotion deal that meant...

Stayed here for a week in in Jan 2013. Great location and easy access to taxis and Metro. The receptionist could speak some basic English which was good. Only setback was when I stayed, it was during cold season and the hot shower was not functioning on the last day. Complained to the housekeeping and receptionist but no one turned...

I have stayed at the Kingtown many times in the last five years and the hotel is showing a lot of wear and tear. Not nearly as nice as it was 5 years ago. They put a small cafe in the lobby where you can grab a beer and have some simple food but frankly it isn't very good. When...

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
