Reviewed 13 June 2013

At various website, It may have been in the past or planned in the future. But actual image of the Hotel is 2-star. At receprtion is very difficult communication in any foreign language.Internet in the room is very weak. The only good thing in the room was that I slept weel.Realy need to change the owner.

Reviewed 31 January 2013

Let's start on a positive note. The staff really did try, at least for a while. Or at least occasionally.

But nothing worked and if they managed to fix it, something else broke.

At check-in the clerk said she had no triple rooms, although we had booked one. Eventually she found one. Internet was dead in our room and the coffeemaker didn't work. Nor did the replacement kettle. A technician eventually said Internet was out on the seventh floor and we should move to the sixth. Although a few hours before, there had been "no triple rooms," one was quickly located.

Internet worked there, but only for a few minutes. Did I forget the clogged bathtub? And the nonexistent heating?

I tried working with the hotel team until late at night.

In the morning, I realized we hadn't come to Shanghai to give classes in hotel management, so we bailed.

Good news: the receptionist immediately refunded the balance of our stay.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

I've stayed for >1week in this hotel - nice staff (even though they speak almost no english, they were trying really hard), safe, clean even though a bit dated.
Make sure you get a room on the higher floors, then it's totally quiet and nice.
the rooms are spacious, actually almost huge - as is the bathroom. I really liked it - even though the furniture is a bit old, but mostly in a good state.
For that price, you can't beat it! it's a low 4*, but better than any 3* I've stayed in!
Transportation is ok, the metro station is only 5-7min away by foot. You can also walk to the Bund if you have 20-30min available.

Plus you get an impression on what life in Shanghai really is like, as this is not the typical down-town location ;)

Room Tip: ask for one on the higher floors, to make sure it's quiet. also, avoid the lower ones in the rai...
