I called 3 months before my reservation date to arrange an early check in/early check out. I've been to Shanghai twice before for 24 hour layovers and never had issues with arranging early check in at other hotels. When I called Lakeside Inn, the receptionist who spoke English said it would not be a problem. So when I arrived at...

5 minutes walk from metro station, cheap price may be suitable for budget travelers. There was wifi in room. However, the frustrating shower, poor hygiene and bad staff attitude would definitely ruin your trip. The toilets did not flush very well.The shower was too weak, and very difficult to tune water temperature because it was either too hot or too...

After some messing around with a booking at another hotel we were guided to the Lakeside Holiday Inn. The location is good with The Bund and Nanjing Road within easy walking distance, but the corridors could do with a good clean. The corridor carpet on the third floor was filthy and had a musty smell. The rooms were clean and...

Located right next to the motorway and beside an underpass, this has no lakeside view at all, although it is next to some water way. We suspect our floor was recently renovated so our floor had a thin layer of dust and a view of neighbouring buildings. Breakfast was very local Chinese- thin water congee with pickles, pumpkin, soya sauce...

Where do I start - there is no English traveler information such as Metro maps or tours. The reception staff speak very little English.

We were shocked to see how dirty the bathroom was, especially the shower stall, it had lots of hair, grime, tiles seemed to have never been cleaned. (Changed room once, we were given a bigger room, but condition was about the same.) Same condition around sink faucets. Dirt and dust everywhere else. Shower didn't work properly, with no consistency in...
