Run down but clean and perfectly locatedPosted Apr 3, 2013
Pros: The location. Everything is in walking distance.
Cons: You could smell cigarette smoke everywhere outside the rooms.
Location: Metro line 2, Exit 7 just across the street.
It wasn't my first trip to Shanghai so I had already certain expectations in regards to the differences between advertised descriptions and what you get in real life. The reviews I read across the internet were all mixed (and most in Chinese) but I wanted to try these serviced apartments anyways for a change. On my arrival they must have stuffed something up and put me in a room that was clearly not their best room (R520). It was fairly run down. A few items were missing or broken. The staff didn't speak any english but their manager/boss seemed to be always available over the phone and was able to help and answer questions and queries quickly. On the third day they asked me to change to another room because they had to "repair" something in 520. The new room one level higher had the same cut but was much nicer. There is also a cafe/restaurant downstairs in the building but I never ate there. Just in walking distance are plenty of great local and international places to eat. In any doubt just walk across to the Cloud Nine Plaza. This is not the best place for families but anyone else who doesn't need a five star treatment will be able to enjoy their stay. PS: The reception is in room 622
