“Very nice place for couples”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

It is the most nice hotel i have ever met in Sha,the staff are very warm heart,The transportation is convenient .But sometime if you stay on the first floor,it will be very noisey.So,if you prefer a quiet sleep,i suggest you'd better choose the second floor or the third floor.Anyway,i will introduce my friends come here.

Room Tip: Don't book the rooms on the first floor,if you want to enjoyo your sleep.It will be very noisy.

I like the cloth and the color,but my husband doesn't really like it. so in our eyes ,it's a hotel for ladies. The coffee shop at the ground floor was cool also, taste is not bad and price is fair. The only weakness piont is the room we stayed doesn't have real window, so it was not very bright. Other thing were all perfect, and I like the location.

I only reached Shanghai at 3am so I am thankful for the quick and friendly check-in. I stayed in the Lavender room which was smaller than it appeared on the photos but no big deal. The room was clean, with good water pressure in the bathroom. There are several places for you to hang around when you are tired from exploring the neighbourhood and most lovely was the in-house pet, a 4-month old brown poodle named Koala (what else?!). There is a park and many lovely small lanes nearby, and the metro is less than 10 mins walk away. Great place.

stayed here during summer. location is fine, lots of food around the corner + the 10minutes of walking doesnt kill. infact its nice to walk to the train station as you get to see things, the crazyness of shanghai - thats the point of travelling anyway. do not choose twin clover as the room s located kinda behind the recept. and can get REALLY noisy + annoying with all the footsteps, phone ringings, chattering, water running from others using the common toilet.. etc. i picked this room initially but the min we were shown to twin clover, i was disappointed as the room was rather shabby. upgraded us to the lily room tts located on the third level. quiet and a whole lot better. try and choose rooms that are located on the third level like clover double, lily double.

beds are okok. certain parts of the beds i could feel the spring. everything else is great, the colors of the rooms, the furniture etc.

staffs are very nice and helpful and yes, i will def stay here again for sureeee :x

I must say I was so surprised the first time I walked into this place! I usually don't believe every picture listed online for hotels/attractions until I see it for myself. To my surprise this place was better than the pictures. The atmosphere/location/food/service all received and A+ from me. I have stayed there more than 4times in my 3yrs of living in China this place is super-d-duper!
