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...

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

Location is good, rooms are ok with average service, very poor wifi in room, complimentary breakfast is average. There is a massage parlor within 200 meters which is traditional but too good at service.

Don't be put off by critical reports. I doubt you will find better for the price ( we paid GNP 35 ) per night and for that we got a queen size bed with balcony.... you can't grumble at that. You are within 5mins taxi from Xin Tuandi so location is spot on. If you're on a budget then give...
