Stayed in the Marvel Hotel couple of nights in October 2011 during a leisure trip to China with my wife. This was the best hotel we encountered on this trip.
First, perfect location for leisure traveller, just around a corner from a subway station, nearly all major highlights of Shanghai are within walking distance!
Second, the interior of the hotel. The hotel is old YMCA building which has been beautifully renovated. The decorations in the lobby are really impressive. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable although a bit on a small side.
Third, the price. For hotel this good, we paid less than USD 100 per night.
The reception staff could definitely speak better English, however, that applies to China in general, so this is nothing to blame this hotel for.
Would definitely stay there again.
