The hotel is located on Huai Hai Road very close to Xintiandi. It's great for shopping, business or tourists. The room was a service apartment with cooking facilities, a small sitting area and adequately sized separate bedroom. It's clean and generally well run. However try to bring guests to the restaurant for coffee over a meeting and it's impossible. The staff have a can't do attitude. They are not flexible and in fact are obstructive at times. The business lounge is small and not suitable for meetings with no privacy. Go outside to a coffee shop and have that meeting! Dry cleaning costs are reasonable in the hotel, but walk two blocks and save 50% by taking clothes to the cleaners yourself. Same with eat in meals. Call Sherpa's and order what you need for less cost.
Overall the location beats many hotels in the city. It's convenient, clean, runs well and having a small American sized refrigerator for food is great. Just don't expect business facilities to be available. A small meeting room for about 3 hours costs an eye watering $650 with the pencils and a bottle of water included. Want coffee? Fruit? You know that's extra!
