Great hotel and convenient location. The hotel is just a 2 minute walk off line 1. Check in was relatively easy and quick. For the price I paid, I was very impressed with the size of the room. The room was spacious, clean and neat. Beds were very comfortable and clean. The best part of the stay was the breakfast.... More

When entering the hotel we immediately recognized a smell. We couldn't really identify. After checking in, we made our way to the room. Already when exiting the elevator one couldn't miss the torn carpets. The room after all was really smelly. Cigarette smell everywhere, an ashtray on the table including matches. Aircon on but without effect. Windows could only be... More

The hotel is situated close to a metro station which makes it very easy to get around the city. There are many restaurants and convenience stores in walking distance. Language was not a problem. The beds were clean and our bathroom was big. However the carpets and walls in the passages are dirty and in desperate need of an upgrade.... More

Very close to metro and trainstation. Big rooms. Excellent breakfast. Lots of hot water. Good service and some english spoken. Soft pillows and very quiet. Beds very hard and you can feel tge springs. No restaurants or bars nearby. Internet not that reliable. Visited with 21 very satisfied students.

It was all right......... I guess. The hotel is well located, clean and well appointed. Nothing amazing but certainly very acceptable. As with most hotels in China 'don't judge the hotel by its lobby' it's always a good idea to have a look at the rooms before being locked in. Sorry got sidetracked. I would recommend this hotel. :-)

The rooms are run down, they need renovation. There is a typical stink in the lobby most of the time. It is difficult to sit around with that smell. The staff is good, Hotel is centrally located, with Shanghai Railway station in walking distance and also line1 metro across the road.

Of all my hotel experiences in Shanghai (at least a dozen) this was by far the worst. The hotel is in a very loud area, and possibly due to its proximity to the station, it is full of loud and often drunk people. Rooms are average, but the biggest turn-off is the staff. If you understand Chinese, you will notice... More
