This hotel is a little deceiving, what with the brand name, the five star rating, and the posh lobby. However, the rooms fall spectacularly below expectations - the rooms look too brown and dreary and everything just seems a tad too old. Like many reviewers said, I'm sure the rooms have seen better days. The toilet looked like it belonged in the nineties. You just don't get that special touch of luxury that you would expect of a five star hotel. It's not to say that the rooms are really poor, they just don't live up to five star standards, that's all. Breakfast was nothing to shout about - the variety does not compare well with other five star hotels and most of the dishes were not very well done. I certainly did not enjoy it much and would have prepared paying a bit for breakfast outside.
Location, however, is great as you would be in the middle of everything and you would not have to travel much to get to most of the places you would want to visit in Shanghai.
