    Reliable hotel in excellent location

    I think you should ban smoking in the breakfast buffet area. The best seats are reserved for smokers, and everyone else is crowded in the inner tables by the food. And the smoke drifts through anyway,

    Fabulous

    Breakfast buffet is excellent and comparable to lunch in terms of variety.

    No entrance/exit to the Shanghai Subway. Have to walk across a flyover.

    Guest rating

    In general the hotel is well located, clean and for the time period in question (Shanghai Worl Expo), reasonably priced.

    Tricky as to breakfast coupon issued to guest. Assuming that breakfast is included (as I did) and if you used the coupon, hotel will charge you 170 RMB (about US$25 each) rather than the US$12 indicated by Booked.net. Front desk staff (one named "Fofanny") was rude and uncooperative and matter only get resolved thanks to Front Office Manager, Mr. Lance Mou.

    Superb

    The hotel is well located at a 5 min waking distance from the metro Line 2. The rooms are quiet and clean and well maintained.

    There was not a very large selection of western food at the restaurant

  • 6.6
    Good

    The location is very close to my business venue and the Metro. Great accessibility to other areas of Shanghai.

    It is inconvenient to access the hotel with a heavy luggage because you need to climb some stairs. The escalators at the overhead bridge leading to the hotel are only upward riding and they will be shut down in the evening. There is no free WIFI in the guest room.

    Very good

    The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious.

    The light in my closest blinked on and off constantly for both nights of my stay. Maintenance came to help but only closed the closet door. You could still hear the sound which made it difficult to sleep.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    It is very luxurious but I think it a bit too expensive. However I would stay there again

    The glass sliding door closing the toilet and shower needs to be changed., As it is now if one is in the shower and slides the door closed then one in the toilet is completely open as there is no door for privacy. A very big problem

    Good

    - Location - In-house hair dressing salon

    - The service at the Cafe. I had dinner there at around 8:45pm on Saturday. The staff was not attentive. They only took care of the guests taking the buffet. They were slow in taking orders, giving me a drink and presenting the bill. They were also unwelcoming and I do not feel like returning to that restaurant. - The room service. The room service I ordered for breakfast was completely cold. I could not eat it at all - the potatoes, eggs, bacon, toast and coffe.

  • 8.4
    Superb

    The location was excellent, as well as the low rate for the one night I stayed there.

    The service in the restaurant was quite slow, but I did order from the menu and not the buffet on the Saturday evening,

  • 6.6
    Good

    Its location is good.

    The staff does not speak proper English and do not try to help customers. So you feel strangled in the hotel and also out (of course) if Chinese is not your mother tongue.

    Fabulous

    The friendliness of the staff, the quietness of the room. Thanks to all!

    The air condition was at times cold, but no big deal
