We stayed in the South Building for 3 nights. Located at a convenient place. Close to subway stations – one station away from Xintianti and 2 from Renmin Park. Despite nearby busy streets, the place itself is quiet. Good breakfast with plenty of choices of food.

But be aware of the package for 100 RMB or 16 dollars, a night. The receptionist would tell you the price includes breakfast, Internet access, mini bar, room service and food at restaurants. It sounds too good to be true, and it is. You will end up paying 260 dollars plus whatever you spent for the services above, exceeding 100 RMB.

The receptionist are not ill-intended but their English is still on the developing side. So it seems they have a hard time to explain to us. We felt a little upset at the charge we were asked for at the end of our trip.

Other than that, the stay in this hotel is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose Garden view.

This is the hotel that Nixon stayed in when he came to China, so it is a pretty historic site. The hotel complex has limited entry points and buildings are around a central plaza, so you can see why it was a desirable location for presidential security. The building exteriors are nothing special. Interior is pleasant. Rooms are adequate, clean, and comfortable. We stayed as part of a tour so I have no idea what a room costs. The breakfast was not as fancy as some of the hotels we stayed at during our tour, but was more than adequate, with a large variety of western and Chinese dishes. You can walk to nearby shopping districts including access to some nightclubs, restaurants, and bars. I had no complaints, except for the lack of free wi-fi.

Room Tip: I did not find the area scenic enough to worry about what you see out the window. It is a pretty enc...

I stayed in this hotel twice in last 3 months
The stay first time was so satisfying, I decided to go back there in my nrext trip
There are different hotels in the same compound, all under the common group JIN JIANG & I stayed in one called CATHAY GARDEN HOTEL
This hotel has historical back ground.
The hotel is old, started in 1959 & hotel has been used by visiting state dignitories & heads of states
There are a number of photographs displayed in the lobby , heads of states like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan & Mr. Putin to name a few

The rooms are spacious, clean & food satisfying
To add to this there is an Indian restaurant functioning in the hotel called TANDOOR

Only disappointment
Internet is charged flat 90 RMB per day . In the days of business travel, hotel management deciding to levy such high charge is very very disappointing

Anothe disappointment I had, among all the dignitaries who have visited & stayed in the hotel I could not find an Indian.
Overall very very satisfied, friendly staff,
all english speaking ( a big blessing for those visiting China !!!)

We spent our first two nights in Shanghai at this hotel. Other reviews have done a great job reviewing the property - we enjoyed our stay and thought the buffet breakfast served each morning was excellent and provided many other options besides Chinese food choices.
