Tea-making, Scenting ,Drinking,Reading,living Slowly ERGENG has 22 hotel rooms in total, it’s very close to Tianzifang. We are wondering how to discover the true meaning of life, We know people living in downtown Shanghai want to pursue a slow pace of life and give themselves more room. So ERGENG came into being. That’s exactly what ERGENG want to express herself.

I booked this in a hurry and didn't realise this was a Japanese hotel.

It is very unique but sleeping on a futon if you are older is not so easy. There are no chairs or TV in the room, but a toilet with many interesting features!

The staff are wonderful and Paul deserves a special mention for his attention and help.

Basic but good breakfast included.

I wouldn't use again due to the difficulties in getting on and off the futon, but if you are younger or fitter and looking for a new experience then I would recommend you give it a try.

I only do reviews for two kinds of places - places that make my heart soar and go beyond my wildest dreams, or places that have that special flair for dropping the ball and disappointing.

Unfortunately Livo hotel falls into the latter category, and here’s a list of reasons why:

AMBIENCE:

- Frustrating deficiency of natural light in both the rooms and the public dining hall in the hotel. Wouldn’t be so bad if all of the fixtures didn’t emit the same type of nasty blue light that comes from your laptop or tablet, which is the opposite of relaxing and can interfere with getting proper rest. This would be less annoying if the photographs of the hotel weren’t cleverly photoshopped to appear much warmer and inviting that this place really is. I’m sorry, but this place is a cramped Stanley Kubrick spaceship nightmare that is marauding across the internet as a boutique hotel experience.

- Impossible to find, and disappointing once you do. I travel with a lot of professional gear, and it’s a big pain to move around more than is absolutely necessary. How about a bigger sign or clearer directions? How about someone keeping an eye on the front door to greet guests and help them with their items? I waited around in a confusing ante-room with a locked door for about a minute before one of the more junior staff members rescued me. All the trappings of cluelessness at this place.

- It’s also hard for me to feel welcome when the first thing I’m asked to do at a hotel is take my shoes off and put on hotel-authorized sandals. Talk about getting off on the wrong foot.

AMENITIES:

- Wifi access requires WeChat sign-in or mainland China ID. What if I just want to get on the internet like a normal hotel? Why is this so difficult?

- Endless reservation confusion at the front desk about where/when/who - this is the last thing you want when you’re standing there weighed down with all your stuff at the end of a long journey. I would have bailed immediately and gladly paid whatever the cost to stay elsewhere, but just couldn’t be bothered to move around any more. So there.

- No gym. Breakfast ends at 10am.

SLEEP:

- Impossible to figure out how to draw the motorized blinds.

- Directly next to the freeway (auto noise all night) and a live music venue.

- Had to hunt and kill a total of three mosquitos over the course of the night. Sleep 10 hours and felt like I had not really slept in the morning. How these mosquitos got in there, I have no idea. Took some doing.

CONCLUSION:

If I had anything redeeming to say about this place, I would.

I’ve stayed in dirt ball roadside surf hostels and Indonesian chicken coops that had more soul and thought put into them. Those places tended to be twice as interesting and comfortable and at half the price. It is not about luxury or being pampered - it really just is all about understanding humans and common sense.
