My partner and I stayed at the New Harbour during our recent trip to Shanghai for the World Expo. We were given an upgrade to a two bedroom when we arrived. The staff were all very friendly and spoke English. New Harbour is well located, near the metro with stores and resturants all around. The breakfast was good with plenty of food, but became a little boring after a few days, so we went to one of the many bakeries nearby and brought things to eat. There are also several good noodle shops nearby offering great food for very low prices, about $3 t0 $5 per person. Even though we were only on the fourth floor, we had no trouble sleeping and we had good working a/c in each of our rooms. We took the metro everywhere and found both the World Expo and Shanghai to be very exciting. The one problem were the crowds at the Expo. We were not able to see most of the Western Europe country pavilions due to the lines. One tip, if you are a US citizen, show you passport to get VIP entry into the US pavilion. Also, if you can get into the China pavilion, try to see it. Skip the wait for Saudi Arabia, not worth it. Thailand and Spain were good.

We stayed at New Harbour Serviced Apartments in mid-May while sightseeing and visiting the Shanghai World Expo. We chose this property because of its central location, close to many attractions. The apartments are small but comfortable and we came to enjoy the sense that we had our own place in a strange metropolis. Where many hotels ration the drinkable water to two bottles per day, New Harbour provides a jug dispenser of several gallons. The breakfast was generally good, although the gentleman on the egg station could stand some practice frying "over easy" eggs.

This hotel was a great value for its location. The concierge hooked us up with EXPO tickets and transportation to the event on a day when the local China Mobile outlet was sold out. Tickets were face value and the transportation, by bus and boat, was reasonable and a pleasurable experience. A troupe of indiginous native performers from the New Zealand EXPO pavilion were staying in the hotel and they made the late night bar scene at the hotel raucous and fun.

New Harbour Serviced Apartments exceeded our expectations and we will certainly return there when we next visit Shanghai.

We were 3 adults traveling so it was nice to have the space of an apartment. There were 2 bedrooms and one bathroom with a living/dining area and a small but quite serviceable kitchen. The apartment was very well located, within walking distance to many sights. We ate breakfast in the restaurant which had sufficient western and Chinese choices. The staff was not overly helpful, but responded to our needs when asked. I agree with other reviews that the style is basic, but I did not at all feel this to be a negative. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The New Harbour Serviced Apartments were very nice. The location is fantastic - just 5 minutes to the metro stop at Dashije in a very central location. There are plenty of supermarkets and resturaunts all around as well. You can walk to the Bund or the old city in 15 minutes.

The room was very nice. We loved having a seperate living room and kitchen. In a place where they never tend to have cold drinks, the refrigerator/freezer was perfect. The room was quiet and comfortable. The A/C worked very well for us - but it wasn't terribly hot while we were in Shanghai. We didn't use the pool, but the Internet center was nice (even if they did charge you every time you want to use it). We didn't eat at the resturaunt either as there were several very good places to eat all around.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful with very good command of English. We made several random requests while there and the accomodated every one.

If we ever return to Shanghai, we will stay here again. Great value, great location, friendly staff and nice, spacious rooms.

We spent four nights here and found it a very good location for Shanghai's attractions. Supermarket across the street as well as numerous other shops/foods in the vicinity. The gym and swimming pool were a wonderful way to relax after a hard day taking in the sights of Shanghai.
Staff were helpful and efficient in organising taxi for trip to airport.
Would recommend staying here.
