My first trip to China started well at the Marvel Hotel, a very well appointed renovated YMCA in the heart of Shanghai. The room was very spacious with a huge bath, comfy bed, and full amenities. The restaurant offered a very good breakfast at a reasonable price ($10), and offered a varied dinner menu that was quite good. Location, though, is its real benefit: all tourist sights are easily accessible by foot or subway (which is extremely easy to use, cheap, and even offers English menus for those who do not speak Chinese). Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel joined the new mid scale Jinjiang MetroPolo Hotel chain as a "Classiq". Try out the new extra large rooms recently renovated and well worth a little extra to overlook the park.Good local cuisine featured in the 3 meal a day leased out cafe on 2F.
