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.
