Firstly the positives. This is immediately adjacent to Shanghai Railway Station and exit one gets you remarkably close to where you need to be ( 5 minutes walk). The room is a reasonable size and the sound proofing does an excellent job. With VPN operating the internet was fine speed wise but I didn’t need to transfer any large files....

A good clean hotel. If slightly sterile. Helpful staff, who arranged cars and train tickets for us and provided all of the info we needed for our stay. We were only here a night and the rooms were lovely. The only issue was the air con "ticking over" when it was off, and what was an unidentified banging which kept...

This place bills itself as a 4 star hotel but in fact it is a 3 star at most. The room was so hot I could not sleep at night because the air con wasn't working properly. I told the staff several times, they checked but did nothing. Upon checkout, they told me they had actually switched off the central...

The overall experience was quite ok, it was the check out that left a very bad impression of the place. Check in - came in early ahead of normal check in time and the process was quite smooth and rooms were available so we could get the rooms early. Room - nothing to shout about. Stayed at the club floor...

Rooms are small, but you have there everything you need. Laundry service is fast and ok. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. Breakfest- unfortunately no porridge :( but they cook very good omlet. Coffee- better not to try or drink only espresso.

Clean rooms with comfy bed. Bathroom is functional. Good shower but the tub is tiny. Breakfast has lots of choice and is pretty decent value, although that has to be the worst cup of coffee I've ever tasted :-) Soundproofing? Absolute joke. I could hear the dude next door snoring. Why do hotels not get this? Very close to the...
