All Travel Website Show That This Is Hotel But It Is Worst Ugly Apparment. Rooms Very Small And Also Kitchen Which has open toilet...... Staff is very rude and don't give room service. Location. is Little Far From City Centre.

So so so disappointed with this hotel. Upon arriving, an inexperienced and rude staff member told me she couldn't find my booking. She didn't try and help me or search for it- just said sorry bye. I then just stood there feeling rather dumbstruck and was wondering if the staff would have the decency to look into their computers to...

This hotel has very bad wifi. They also have violated the privacy of our travelling group because they exchanged personal information of passports to one another. The communication is a weak point for sure. The room is very small. Toilet doesn't flush properly. Look at the wallpaper of this room. It is not so clean here. Furniture in the lobby...

The hotel itself has seen better days, and is in need of a refurb - but this was reflected in the price. A six night stay set me back around £215 (but I could have had eight for the same price) through STA travel. No swimming pool as far as I could see, and had problems with aircon and room...

1st visit 24 to 28 Apr 2016- The location of the property is the main highlight. Malls and local shopping street are at walking distances. Be prepared for a long waiting time during check in. ATM machine at reception was quite helpful in exchanging money. Room was at 17th floor, nice view, neat and enough space. Washroom was clean too....

There was a long queue to check in, and only 2 counters were available for both check-in and check-out. Without clear signage or instructions, guests who are checking out just walked to the counter and demanded to check out immediately without queuing of course. Please note that this is not unusual in Shanghai, especially being a local hotel chain and...

The location was quite convenient. Very close to 4th exit of Dapuqiao metro station on line 9. There are many eating places and several family marts in the food court at metro station and in adjoining SML center so nothing to worry about breakfast!!. Front office will try to help you the best. Specially the guy at front office who...

I booked this hotel as it was close to a friends location and must say I was not disappointed, I personally have a nice clean room and find the location ideal to be able to get anywhere in the city. The hotel room provided towels and soap and shower gels toothbrush and paste also bottled water in the room all...

Spent three days here and it was was more than acceptable. Clearly this hotel was once a 4 or 5 star hotel which has been over taken by the latest builds and, although showing signs of its age, the benefits of that former glory are still there to be used. We were on the 35th floor with a large balcony,good...

Good clean rooms, very close to Dapuqiao metro line. 10 minute walk to the old French Concession and 15 minutes to West Nanjing Road. Would definitely recommend. Check bookings.com for current specials
