This is a relatively affordable luxury hotel.
The room was pretty well flawless. Beautiful view of the city. Wow factor here. Big comfortable bed. Nice furnishings. Good heater/aircon. Strong wifi connection.
The breakfast selection is varied and plentiful.
The pool is about 15 m long. The gym is adequate.
This hotel is just 200 metres or so from the Jing'an Temple subway on Line 2. We found more than enough in the area to see. Taxis in Shanghai are quite cheap. We took one to the Golden Jade Temple from here for something like 3 or 4 euros. The Jing'an temple is a stroll away. The northwestern part of the French Concession is not far away either. We enjoyed our walk through this area. Plenty of modern malls around, if that's what you want.
