So..I arrive at hotel 7am expecting immediate access to room after paying for it for the night before, advising them of my arrival time and getting confirmation from them. Yeap...room not ready. After 10 minute argument with the Manager got upgraded for another 15US bucks. The room was outstandingly cheap for what it was. Separate bedroom, lounge and full on kitchen.
If u want a western style breakfast give this one a miss. It is disgusting. However, the new Pullman hotel a 5 min walk away has a great breakfast on the 40th floor for US30 or Mcdonalds 2 mins away for US2 !
The Concierge spoke little English but seemed to achieve any request that I had.
The hotel coffee shop makes the best coffee in Shanghai and a pleasant place to sit.the coffee is advertised as "Scottash highland coffee" so go figure that one out !
The position is excellent . The very efficient metro is very close by. The Bund is a US$2 5min taxi ride away. The shops etc around the hotel are pleasant and there are many Good Massage places close at hand to soothe every aching muscle !
So...because of the fantastic price and position of this hotel one can forgive the bad points.
