Not as good as it's described
Posted Dec 1, 2011
The location of this hotel is simply great, quite near to the subway (300m) and close to Xintiandi.
BUT: my room was really dirty, the towels and the bedsheets were full of someone else's hair and spots, the haidryer technically provided was not working, the "air conditioning" was so weak that I had penguins in my room and there's written that there's a business centre but actually there's not.
Moreover, at the reception I had to ask twice to check the booking and I had to wait until the next morning to get back the money they wanted at the check in but that I had already paid via credit card - it was not a deposit, simply they were charging me the fee again -.
There's the possibility to get the room with the window that faces the inner courtyard - so you cannot actually open it; and of course there's hammering and drilling at seven o'clock in the morning (not really a problem, but it's just for advise).
Three stars are definitely too much (I've been in two-stars hostels that were really better). Suggested only if you have your own sleeping bag...
