not worth a penny

the first time i ever chose such awful hotel, well should call that a "motel" !!! I looked up the comment here before I booked, actually coz I need to stay close to my relatives, and they said this motel is close to them but they never lived here, if i have known that was so awful, I would be booking intercontinental just opposite to this awful one. there is no freezer, no safe, no air-conditioning and they are providing me heat when outdoors temp is just 20 degrees??? the only impressive thing is the 55 inch TV in the room, and yes the location is good, that is all. close to 90 usd per night, and
providing such "facilities" is so worse 我第一次住糟糕的酒店,應該稱之為“旅館”! 我在預訂前查看了這裡的評論,其實因為我需要住近我的親戚,他們說這家離他們很近但是他們從來沒有住在這裡過,如果我知道這那麼差,我寧可會預訂對面的洲際!!! 唯一令人印象深刻的是房間裡的55英寸電視,是的,位置很好,就是這樣。 每晚接近90美元,和提供這樣的“設施”是如此糟糕!沒有冰箱,沒有保險箱,沒有空調,當戶外溫度只有20度時,它們正在為我提供暖氣。

The hotel is said been built in 2015 so all is very new. Clean and tidy. Big room and big bed, friendly staff. I can't spot anything bad- it's opposite Intercontinental Hotel and surrounded by a lot of restaurants and cafes. Tube station is 5 min walk away, with a few lines to go anywhere cross Shanghai. Interesting, if you have the hotel app you can book through it and get some cash back if you top up loyalty card. Room rates changes everyday and free cancellation till 6pm. Very flexible and easy going.

We are from overseas and needed a not so expensive place to hole in for 2 weeks while we helped our nephew move in the university- not bad at <$40 per day per room, without breakfast. Rooms are standard in size, old, smelled of cigarettes. Front desk staff speak English and are always accomodating. Best thing is the location - an asian fast food shop a few steps away,, a convenience store, Family Mart 10 m away, a digital electronics mall, McDonalds and a big Foodmall a block away.More importantly, it is walking distance from the Century Avenue metro station where almost all train lines pass, including the direct train to Pudong Airport. ( only for 6 yuan compared to the taxi which cost 150 yuan) Although it's not in the heart of the popular shopping and tourist spots of th metros are very cheap, efficient and clean. Taxis are unreliable and you might get lost if you dont have someone write your destination in Chinese characters.

Room tip: Ask for a nonsmoking room. Bring your own air freshener or air purifier.

Stayed for 2 nights as the fist location during a China holiday. Good central location, close to ATM banking, reasonable street stalls and taxi access. Reception staff were pleasant and cold communicate sufficiently in English, although not overly enthusiastic. There was a reception saferoom for passports which worked well. Rooms were adequate and heating and showers worked well. Appropriately priced as a 3 star hotel.

This hotel is located just opposite Intercontinental Hotel and it is so convenient to get anything you want (as it is surrounded by shopping malls and lots of restaurants).

About the room, i stayed 2 weeks in executive room (old furniture but OK to sleep). My room's power saving device was not functioning properly, it was very annoying when the light kept turning off. So, i asked front desk about it....and they sent someone to fix it... and it was fixed in 10 minutes.

Nothing exciting about their facilities. Note: the kettles don't look very clean; don't bother to ask the housekeeping to change because they probably get lousier one for you.

The rooms were pretty average...bed, shower, TV etc...there were many cable channels, so that was a plus point! However one point to note is all the channels were in Mandarin...except BBC...

The staff speak mainly in Mandarin. Whatever level of English they can speak is very low...so if you can only speak in English...and no Mandarin...I hope you won't have many requests...or you might end up frustrated.

However this is not to say the staff are not helpful. On the contrary, I find them very service-orientated. Like when I tried to travel to certain tourist destinations, they were ready to advise on which was the best mode of transport to go (Eg. MRT, taxi) and what the approximate cost would be. They were also quick to deliver the electrical adapters for our usage and there is free broadband internet. But you have to use your own computers.

The location is pretty decent. Taxi will bring you to most tourist destinations for about 12 - 20 yuan. (12 yuan is the starting price for a taxi ride). Most taxi drivers who start their meters will not cheat you. The only drivers who would cheat you are those who DO NOT start their meters. Always insist on the meter and take the receipt from them. The hotel is near shopping malls (Yaohan!) and food places.

The spa at the 3rd floor certainly looks dubious. When the lift doors open, I see paintings of naked women on the walls (I don't know if they can attribute it to artistic value). I certainly didn't dared to step out to find out.

On the whole, I wouldn't mind staying at this place again for the location and helpful staff...but that would be all.
