Five stops from the Bund

Posted Apr 30, 2017 on Wotif
The room had a refrigerator, kitchen table and a loft area with a desk area and second bed. There was a convenience store across the street. No issues. Nice place.

Hard to locate and a bit far from the CBD.

Posted Apr 25, 2017
Pros: Close to a train station (Zhongshang Park). The layout of the room is to my liking with lots of mirrors and a high view of the city.
Cons: Room smells of mold. Not sure if cleaning the air conditioning will resolve the issue.
Location: Near Zhongshang park (this might come in handy as a reference for commuting or for taxi) A mall is also nearby and there are lots of places to eat.
They have a different name for this hotel on the outside which makes it hard to look for. To enter the hotel, I had to go up the uncovered escalator/stairs outside. Given that it was raining, the escalator was inoperable, so imagine yourself climbing up a flight of stairs with your luggage. At the front desk, they will not know of your accommodation. You will have to go through their security guards up to level 9 (Room 921) to check-in. The room smells of mold.

The location is excellent. There is a big shopping center with lots of eating places within 5 min walk. Subway route 2 is just opposite the road which leads you to most of the landmarks, tourist spots in Shanghai. However the condition of the hotel is not good. Everything is a bit run down.

Nasty low class hotel w/ excellent location

Posted Jan 22, 2017
Hotel is located at excellent location, literally just next to line 2,3,4 subway station, take the exit 7, then across the one way street, take the escalator to 2nd floor, get into the building and take the elevator to 9th floor, look for the office room as the reception. The room will meet your basic desire only if your expectations is based on the discounted extremely low price, or else you would be disappointed for sure.

Great location for transportation and shopping.

Posted Oct 19, 2016
Location: It is easy to find taxi, bus and subway. You could get everything from nearby shops.
It is very nice that the hotel provides washer machine. 1st time experience of check-in at RM.921 instead of front desk. Too cheap window drapery wakes you up in early morning. Only one pillow does not provide any comfort. In the bathroom, no lighting over the mirror. The kitchen clearness needs more attention due to a couple of tiny cockroach.

Mediocre place but good location

Posted Aug 17, 2016 on Orbitz
This hotel is nothing to write home about. It's a high story building that shares the rooms among several hotel companies. It's a 12 year old building, which in today's China means it's getting old and very near the end of its useful life. 95% of the rooms are basically studio units with a tiny kitchenette. The cleaning is quick and superficial (as in all of China), the internet is frustrating (most rooms have a 2-2.5 Mbps connection, WITHOUT a vpn, a vpn will drop the speed by another 50-80%), but they have ok bed mattresses and functional furniture. Don't expect utensils or pots and pans here. On the plus side, the shower water pressure is great and most rooms (not all) have central heating and A/C. What this hotel has going for it is the location. Very near the metro lines 2,3 and 4 and the Long Zhi Meng shopping center across the street. If it wasn't for the location this place would charge 30%-50% less.

Hotel close to subway, but nothing else positive

Posted Jul 1, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: close to subway
Cons: give room a good clean and maybe replace carpet
Room dirty. Needs good spring clean. When we complained, the staff gave it a token clean. difficult to get staff to understand as no one spoke English. Hotel close to subway and a reasonable supermarket. building poorly designed as escalators to ground floor from reception area were outside and flooded when it rained, so they were not working most of the time, so had to carry luggage up / down stairs. Would not recommend especially to Western tourists

Bad start to 2016

Posted Jan 6, 2016 on Hotels
I chose the "Deluxe" room to make my New Year's Eve in Shanghai a memorable experience - and it was for all the wrong reasons. First, the level of cleanliness really was substandard. But more importantly, the TV did not initially work and the microwave and refrigerator both needed to be replaced. No real amenities to speak of and very spotty internet. Itchy sheets, a hard bed, and flat pillows just made the whole experience worse. To add insult to injury, I emailed Hotels.com on 12.29 and as of 01.06 (date of this review), I have not received a response.
