“Nice spot”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

The website says the hitel has a gym, but its very small and some of the machines don't work. A huge bug
Got into our room somehow but management came up right away to kill and remove it and then to spray the room. Later they sent up a fruit basket to apologize. The cafe serves one of the better coffees I have had in China. I speak Mandarin, so I found everyone extremely helpful and pleasant.

Excellent value, excellent location, comfortable beds, presentable and clean. Hotel breakfast was pretty average, so I would suggest going elsewhere, otherwise hotel staff were friendly and attentive. Another big bonus of this hotel is it is right around the corner from Dashijie Station and about a 10 minute walk from People's Square, Yuyuan Garden and The Bund.

Room Tip: I stayed in a Superior double room (26 square metres), which was the cheapest and smallest room opti...

Stayed there for 2 nights in April with no expectation in the beginning. It turned out with surprise that I found the hotel very interesting. The building was very nicely renovated and it showed character and charm. Hotel rate was reasonable for the good hotel quality. Room was clean and pretty big. Rooms facing the main street might get some traffic noise and I was staying at the back of the hotel. Breakfast was OK and not quite my taste. The hotel porter was extremely nice and helpful.

As previous reviewers have already mentioned, location is the key plus of this hotel. It is right beside the Dashijie metro station, but in any event is within a 15 minute walk of most places in Puxi, including People's Park, the main shopping thoroughfare, Xintindai and the old town.

We were in a superior deluxe suite which was tastefully decorated and had a lot of space.

Now for the downsides.

When I enquired as to where I could purchase train tickets onwards to Beijing, I was told that I should go to the train station directly to purchase them. I had, from my pre holiday research and frm my LP guidebook understood that there are ticket offices in most cities which charge a 5rmb or so fee from which you can purchase tickets. When I specifically enquired about where these were, I was fobbed off and told that it was too far away and I best go to the train station.

Undeterred, I went online and did my own research to find that there is one 10 minutes round the corner (I think on Fuzhou road?) off to the right if you are walking towards people's square. I went and got my tickets there.

This was extremely disappointing from a service point of view which in my opinion, brings the score down. The other issue was that the air conditioning was not very effective and in the end, we tried to sleep with our window open (but it was very noisy outside as it is a big carriageway).

Overall, it would be a good hotel for travellers who are already familiar with Shanghai and/or do not intend on enquiring at the hotel for any assistance.
