This is a very good hotel. It reminds me a lot of the older hotels in NY , or the new ones , where the rooms are " modern" but very small. The bathroom is very small , but very modern and very clean. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We went at the end of November, and the...

I stayed for 3 nights leading up to the New Year. The hotel itself is average, the rooms are a bit tired but tidy and clean and the food selection is wide as it changes daily although the quality is poor and could certainly be improved. A positive note to the hotel is the cheap price they offer in a...

Location is good as close to Jing An temple. Rooms are a bit tired but clean for the price offered. Getting a taxi is a challenge as the main entrance is away from the main road. So have to wait for drop-offs. Walking to the main road to hail a cab will be a challenge.

We were in Shanghai in November. Be aware that China does NOT turn on their heat in hotels until the middle of November. Thank heaven I had packed a heavier pj. Having our clothes washed cost us $86. Don't get room 1815...the wind whistles at night. They couldn't get the window totally shut. We asked to be moved at 3...

The hotel was pretty basic, which was expected given its price. The location is great, and is close to lots of attractions, including Jing'an Temple and shopping areas. The rooms are pretty small, and we had an issue with dampness - the carpets, the bedding, everything - it all smelled musty and moldy and felt wet to the touch. A...

It appears the receptionist decide which rooms you will receive. Have stayed here 4 times now and find the rooms range from very good to tiny. Same price for rooms but size differs. Protesting helps and they move you to another room; one they should have put you in the first place. Breakfast is vast- European and Eastern. Location is...

The staff were very rude and uncooperative, including the manager. An inordinately large deposit is taken at arrival for no apparent reason. It's a nice looking hotel but there are many others in Shanghai that are similarly priced with much friendlier staff.

I have stayed before in this hotel and so far it had been ok but now a really troublesome experience makes me reconsider.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
