1) They put smokers on non-smoking floors. They smoked in hallways and elevators. Smokes came to my room underneath the door. Staff saw them and did nothing to remind them not to smoke in non-smoking areas. 2) The dining room is too small for the large number of tourists coming through the hotel. Each morning people were fighting for food,...

Hotel staff was friendly and price was good this is why I gave 2 stars, otherwise I'd given 1 star. 1. Hotel is not clean at all, including rooms and breakfast area. 2. Breakfast is only attractive to Chinese people I guess, because I don't like to eat pork buns or rice in the morning. There wasn't any options. I...

I stayed for a night on a business trip. Compared to other international hotel brands in Shanghai, this is an excellent value. It's reasonably located, about 45 minutes to Shanghai Hongqiao airport. I wil stay again.

This is a clean and fairly new hotel. We stayed as part of a large group and actually stayed on two separate occasions one week apart (so the hotel was organized by someone else). We arrived ahead of the main group and were quickly checked in (the ability of some of the front desk to speak and understand English varied,...

This could be a better place if it's managed properly. We encountered the following problems during our stay; - all rooms seems to be smoking despite the sign shows no smoking - management cast a blind eye on guests who smoke in their rooms, some even leave their room door open so that the hall way is full smell of...

I use Holiday Inn in Nanjing very often and this was quite different and disappointing. However, I also use Ibis for it's low price and basic standards. Holiday Inn Express, Sanlin is comparable to the Ibis chain. So if you're on a tight travel budget, I think it's worth the compromise. Highlights- - Breakfast was terrible. - Bathroom design for...

I stayed here for two nights in Jan. 2011, one night at a time. Contrary to a previous review, the staff spoke a okay English, was friendly and tried to help where they could. The hotel is located about 30 minutes by Taxi from the airport (costs 130RMB for a ride), and it is about 20-30 minutes by Taxi from...

First problem none of the front desk staff know how to speak english. Second problem we were given a smoking room when we requested a no smoking room and the unfriendly staff didn't want us to change our room when their housekeeping person could clearly smell how bad the room was. Third problem was that the new room was full...
