Location was amazing great for first timers in Shanghai. Most major Shanghai inner city attractions are within walking distance; Nanjing Road Shopping pedestrian (15 mins), People Square (10 mins), the Bund and Yu Garden/ Old shangai.

Located a block away from Dasijie Metro station and from there, almost anywhere is accessible including Pudong airport.

Lots of eating places in nearby streets - eg Henan streets all selling Shanghainese as well as Szechuan food. For those who misses southern chinese/ South East Asian food, there is a very reasonable priced restaurtant - Glorious (I think it is called) on Jiangling street about 5 mins from the hotel.

Room Tip: If you are a non smoker, make sure that you ask for a non smoking or that refreshers have been appli...

Stayed there last week for 2 nights in the 3 room apartment. The apartment was really nice..Rooms are very well maintained and look new. They provide drinking water in the kitchen. There is a washing machine and microwave oven. The location is good,near to eating places. Walking to Nanjing Road is not very very near though. Subway station was near,about 5minutes walk. Name of the nearest subway station is Dashijie.

I stayed four nights at this property this month whilst in Shanghai for business. The price was great -- S$88 /night -- and the location is three blocks from our offices there.

The rooms are clean and the bed reasonably comfortable. And I had no issue with noise that others have commented on. All of that said, the rooms are quite basic. Despite a list of items available in a minibar, there was none in my room. The TV didn't work. The towels were a bit frayed and quite thin. It took a few minutes for the shower to warm up each morning. And the lack of wifi was seriously inconvenient. There's no desk in the apartment, although there is a nice dining table. Too bad it's too far from the ASDL outlet....So work was performed hunched over the coffee table.

Would I stay here again? For a business trip, yes. We're aggressive about managing costs, and the location can't be beat. However, if I were to travel to Shanghai on a personal visit, I might shell out a little more money for a full-service hotel.

I had five nights at New Harbour Service Apartments and loved it. It is central to many tourist sites with it being less than ten minutes walk to The Bund and less to the main shopping street of Nanjing Rd.

The apartment itself was very clean and spacious. Each room was large including the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge area with all the fittings and appliances you could hope for. The view was pretty good although you are surrounded by other tall buildings but not right up next to you. The pool is heated and a decent size also. The restaurant was nice and the food very good although not spectacular.

Below the building to the side is a supermarket which was great and a subway station (Dashijie‎) is located nearby. There are also some of the nicest cake shops I have ever visited with the prices extremely low compared to what I am used to.

One word of warning an it is not related to the hotel. If you get the express train from the airport touts will try and get you into their taxis and charge you five times what the fare is worth. This of course isn't unusual and they tried it with me and failed but you have to be forceful. Taxis are usually parked outside the hotel 24 hours a day so leaving is easy.

I was warned by a number of people that Shanghai isn't that great a city to visit. I would disagree and loved the fact that The Bund is still alive and well. Ok, it isn't that traditional in a Chinese sense but compared to Beijing which I felt was empty Shanghai still has a sense of excitement about it.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Shanghai.

I stayed at this property for over 2 months while on a short-term work assignment in Shanghai. I have to say it was difficult to adjust to my living arrangements in the beginning! I lived in room #2408, while spacious and quiet, the furnishings and amenities were very, very, basic and simple. I also had a kitchen that I never used. albeit the fridge and microwave. Housekeeping did a decent job most of the time, the front desk staff were not the most helpful (except "Tony"), the pool was closed the entire time I was there, there was no wireless service (broadband only) , and I did not use the F&B outlet. However, I always felt safe, the location was perfect (walking distant to major sites and Dashjie station line 8), and it was in a lively area (the early morning "farmers market" was always interesting). So, if you don't care about Frette sheets, fluffy towels, the smell of "sewage" in your bathroom wafting up the drain, and no clothes dryer. This could be your place. During my last days in Shanghai I checked into a 5 star hotel!
