This hotel is struggling to call itself 3 star. The whole block is going to be pulled down and rebuilt. The hotel is on it's last legs. Fridge didn't work and air con was barely worth switching on. In the steamy September weather it was...More
This is an older Hotel and relatively run-down. We had a double room which gave little room to even move around the centrally located double bed ( a very HARD bed) let alone find a spot for two cases.
Wallpaper coming off the walls added...More
This hotel is dirty, old, and full of mold. Run, run fast. It really is a shame that this hotel is so poorly maintained because the location is fabulous. I stayed for two long miserable days with a delegation from the United States. I knew...More
Considering that decent Shanghai hotels are on the expensive side, the Swan is reasonable, especially due to its convenient location less than half a block to the football stadium and spacious Lu Xun Park as well as a large modern mall. This is the second...More
Modest location, 5 metro stops from the city centre, but with an interesting ( noisy ) park opposite. Reasonable reception staff, but not allowed to sit on chairs in reception area unless purchasing a drink!! Could do with more lifts. Spacious rooms, usual hard Chinese...More
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
