I would recommend this hotel to those who are concerned with cost while expecting 4.5-5 star quality. Due to its location in the Putuo district (an area of Shanghai that hasn't been fully "renovated" yet), its prices are made more affordable, especially with tour groups and those booking holiday packages. When we stayed there for the first time back in 2010 it was relatively new and the service apartment next to it was still under construction. We suspected this being the reason why we sensed an air of VOC in our room. We also experienced an episode of skin allergy when we developed hives as we were about to go to sleep. At first I thought it was VOC, but then my wife said it could be the filler in the comforter and pillows and she's allergic to duck/goose, i.e. the down. The next morning we were fine but we still asked the hotel to give us another room and change the bedding to something hypoallergenic. Once in our new room, we were fine.
