Great location. Minutes walk to the nearby Jing'an temple where one can find all kinds of food and stores. The staff are very friendly and the room is clean. The price is modest for the location. The internet is a little slow though. Highly recommend it for business and pleasure.

Loved staying here!! Booked via ctrip for best price. Room was super clean. Bathroom was very nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable. It's China so I've been in gross rooms. This place was not. No bugs, very clean, no weird smells. Highly recommend. I would 100% without a doubt stay again.

The hotel has a good vibe and friendly staff.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
