“Nice hotel - great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

This calls itself a serviced apartment - but basically it is a hotel room that comprises a sitting room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and something that is supposed to be a kitchen. Our bedrooms were nice but comprised two double beds and a single (as advertised) when surely most guests would rather have had a double bed and three singles...

The kitchen was the disappointment - it had no cooking equipment rendering it all but useless. It did have a fridge - handy for beer and yoghurt - a couple of bowls and a couple of plates. There was also free hot water for tea and cold bottled water in a bubbler. The room had internet access but only with a cable - no wifi - which was useless for our Ioads and Ipods. The only wifi was in the hotel lobby.

The rooms were large and the views were great. The sitting room was large and comfortable but the dining table only had four chairs - for a room that was supposed to sleep five.

The hotel offered very expensive, very ordinary breakfast. There was also a swimming pool which was reasonable but didn't have any water shallow enough for a non-swimming child. On the positive side, though, the staff did find a rubber ring for him to use.

The location is fab - quiet enough but within easy walk of excellent restaurants, ATM machines, supermarkets, a metro station and the bus station. It is also walkable to the gardens and The Bund. I would happily go back.

We stayed for 2 nights. Check in took a while but understandable since we were a group of 20. We booked 3 BR apartments and they were big and the furnishing was good. There are English channels on cable TV and that was a plus. Very close to eating places and groceries etc... The cab was not too familiar with the place so we were a bit delayed but got there eventually. Front desk can speak English well enough, not too friendly but willing to answere questions. We would stay again I suppose given the price was pretty reasonable when we booked and has lots of eateries close by :)

Really great hotel with attentive service, right near all the action - you can walk everywhere. We were a couple with my mother and the 2-bedroom serviced apartment was a great choice.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Stayed here twice. At the end of March 2012 and then again again second week in April 2012 as we found the location, facilities and value for money unbeatable. We traveled for business purpuses (and a bit pleasure) as 2 adults and 2 children (11 & 13) and found the 2 bedroom apartment fantastic.

The apartment had a small kitchenette which did not have any cooking utensils or cutlery. Just a Microwave and hot water boiler. This was absolutely sufficient for us as we only used it for tea and coffee. Not much point in cooking yourself if you can go out for dinner and feed the family for about USD15.-.

Free broadband cable connection in the rooms and free WIFI in the reception area and breakfast buffet room. 2 TV's, but we found only 3 English channels out of the 50 or so. But who cares. Great heated swimming pool which we have been looking for to use every single day but we have been so busy every day that at the time we came home to the hotel it was at closing time (9.30pm)

Breakfast room was a stunner, with huge tables and massive chairs, more like a lounge. Choice of food was more on the western side and for RMB88.- per person/day (about USD14.-) it was the most expensive we paid in China but we could not complain because it was convenient.

Location was great, subway about 2 min walk away and all taxi rides are cheap as chips. Most staff spoke some English with the reception having three staff which could understand pretty much everything.

If you need a china SIM card, there is a big China Mobile office in the next building which provides you with a Chinese mobile number within 15min. No passport or credit card was required.
WARNING - Don't buy SIM cards at the Airport as you don't know when they expire. We bought two SIM cards in the China Mobile shop to stay in contact in case we got lost and for 3 weeks I didn't even use RMB50.- and I used mine extensively for business.

First time we stayed on the 5th floor and the second time on the 15th and both times it was very quite and we had no problems with noise.

When we visit Shanghai again, we will certainly try to book a room at this hotel.

I would recommend this service apartment if you're traveling with family. The service apartment was spacious enough and clean.

We were a family of 6, and this apartment served just nice for us.

Besides, the best thing about this apartment was the location. Good local food were all very near to the service apartment. And they were cheap! Would highly recommend this for the travelers with the love of food!
