The best thing about this hotel was the fairly convenient location, only a few minutes walk from the metro station (Dong'an Rd, Exit 3). The worst thing was the bed, it was VERY firm to the point of being downright uncomfortable, and I didn't get much sleep. The room didn't feel particularly secure, and although there was a safe on a floor in a cupboard, the fact that it wasn't attached to anything and wasn't very heavy meant I decided to keep my valuables on me rather than leaving them in the room. The bed sheets had been washed however they had many small holes (see photo), and I could see stains on the mattress protector underneath. The shower was revolting, really yellow and sticky underfoot, definitely bring your flip flops! The windows were poorly sealed so the street noise (buses) were quite loud, but thankfully this didn't last all night. There was the odd group of noisy men talking and laughing in the corridor but only for 5 minutes, and this can happen anywhere. The room is well proportioned with a desk and TV (I didn't turn it on though). There is nothing much near the hotel, I just went back there to sleep each night. One night I took the metro to Dapuqiao to explore the laneway markets, and there were also a lot of dining choices in that area. There is free wifi in the hotel, it was quite slow but better than nothing.
