Ultimately, this hotel represents a promising concept poorly executed. This is definitely not a good business hotel and would probably challenge some leisure travelers.
A couple of positives:
The location, on the edge of Fuxing Park, is quite nice. It is convenient to a number of business, cultural and leisure destinations in Shanghai.
The rooms are large and the style is unique. It actually looks like someone poured a fair amount of money into this place, but didn't have enough to finish it properly.
Now the negatives:
The noise from the night club in the same building was horrendous, and I am a very heavy sleeper. It didn't wind down until after 2am. I would steer clear of this place for this reason alone.
Breakfast was a joke. Very limited selection and poor quality. Enough said.
Lousy service. Check in staff was out of it when we arrived and things took much longer than necessary. No bar for a night cap. There was a small gym at the top level and a hot tub that was empty and appeared to be in disrepair.
Basically the noise issue alone merits a bad review. While the room was generously sized and interesting, the hotel did not offer enough in terms of services or amenities to even begin to redeem it.
