So-soPosted Jan 29, 2015 on Hotels
If you're just looking for a place to sleep, this hotel is alright. It's a short walk to the subway station; one stop away from People's Square. So, it's pretty central. The hotel itself is so-so. There are some spots that are in need of maintenance/repair work. Though helpful, the unsmiling staff can barely speak English, so unless you dumb it down significantly (or can manage some basic Mandarin) you're probably going to feel rather frustrated. The air conditioning (as mentioned in some of the other reviews) seems to be an ongoing problem. Generally, I found the room a bit too warm for my liking. I cannot comment on the restaurant's food because I only had a light meal at the second-floor coffee shop. It wasn't very good, and the giant rat running around was a bit off-putting :P

Absolutely waste of money and time. Very bad hotelPosted Feb 14, 2014
Cons: change staff and make room comfortable and be honest
This hotel staff can’t speak English. Room like a cold storage. Horrible room Said have in room WiFi but actually nothing there. Please do not book this hotel. Not recommended.

Very Positive stayPosted Nov 19, 2013 on Hotels
This hotel is a typical 4 star that might look awkish if you speak 0 mandaring but if you get by in Chinese is fab.Breakfast is phenomenal, location very positive at one tube stop from People Square. Zhabei is getting up and in Joy City closeby you can find Starbucks, Wagas and so on.Excellent value to money. If you are tourists hotel staff english is very basic and scholastic so make an effort to simplify your language like say "we need a taxi" and not "can you get us a cab"...

...Posted Jan 19, 2012 on Hotels
The hotel was fine,and the room was pretty ok. however the location of the hotel is not considered as great. Because its located in a really old area....and you can't find any restaurants, except the ones for the local ppl.. It's like 5min walk to the nearest metro, so its ok as it's only a couple of stops away from nanjing lu

Shanghai hotel at reasonable pricePosted Oct 22, 2011 on Hotels
Reasonably priced, but very nice hotel. Don't let the neighborhood scare you away, but you must be a brave traveler. Ask for an english speaking manager, if necessary.

Puxi New Century Hotel ShanghaiPosted Oct 17, 2011 on Hotels
I stayed here for 2 nights and had terrible experience. The hotel refused to switch on the cooling engine of the rooms and left it solely to fan is utterly unacceptable. Room service lady even asked me to open the window. Will definitely not recommend this hotel to all!

Good Service and CleanPosted Nov 22, 2015
Booked a double bed room but there were only twin bed room available. The receptionist insisted that there were two beds in the double room. After negotiating, I was upgraded to a suite room.
