Location for me was OK, I wanted to have a good link by Metro to both Airports and Railway Stations so this position was OK, its just a 5 min walk to Metro and Bus station even closer. If you also want Downtown this is a great area to stay at. Nearby restaurants are available (although take care of the Bars as they will try to get you inside and charge high monies for drinks). Rooms were OK, shower, lighting, double bed, were all OK. Rear of property away from traffic is OK. Tea making facilities were also OK, there was is a working fridge. Staff were OK and this Hotel was very busy when I was there, so popular with tours.
Internet was quite slow and some times could not download mails with attached data. Rooms were not that clean, it was OK but carpets quite stained in places. They do not vacuum each day so be prepared to check floor when you arrive. TV is not international so would not stay in touch with any English service such as BBC, CNN, HBO etc so not good for evenings. Breakfast was included and at a reasonable price. They do not offer juices such as Orange, Apple etc so I brought my own. Coffee is good. Mainly traditional Chinese food is available but not much western, which is OK but be prepared. I tried on both days of my stay to order different eggs but no one could understand me. Perhaps the english speaking person was not available. Fruit is also sparse.Last point this is a very large busy Hotel so be prepared to wait at Reception to Check in or out, it takes ages. Also very noisy in the corridors early in the morning late at night. This also effects breakfast with many people trying to eat at the same time. But it appears to be a popular choice so they are a victim of their own success. For me it was quite overwhelming and will choose another better but similar priced smaller Hotel that's available nearby.
The location is easy enough to get to from Shanghai Railway station, but far from airports. Once there, it’s in a good location to walk to some popular spots
The service was horrendous. Upon checking in after hours on the train late at night, i was told because i didn’t have a passport stamp that i was forbidden from staying there. They refused to acknowledge my valid residence permit or that I had last entered China using the e-channel. When my moderate Chinese-language skills reached their end, the receptionist refused to call her boss for 15-20 minutes, saying my Chinese was good enough to understand that I was not allowed to stay. They were ready to send me out on the street in the rain. Finally, after she called 2 people, the boss on the phone told her that my valid residence permit was enough and she reluctantly checked me in. The story goes on in terms of awareness and treatment by lobby and hotel staff, but it’s not worth typing. The next day, my key cards stopped working. All in all, i think you’d do better at a youth hostel for this price.
Near to the metro station. Not so bad breakfast.
Can't pay by union debit card the deposit. This wasn't mentioned in the offer but they was reallly helpful and I payed by cash.
Close to metro
