Aksaray Province, Turkey
Reviewed 22 March 2017

We have stayed in the hotel between March 14-16 with my colleuge for business. We really enjoyed the Hotel during our stay but we have encountered with a problem then. They did not refund our deposit payment. We sent them several messages about it. But we could not get reply from the hotel authorities.

Great place to stay near the South Shanghai rail station. Nice variety for breakfast. Great to have no MSG. Nice to have a self service laundry center. The rooms are clean and the fact that the entire facility is non-smoking is a plus.

I was there for business trip and spent a night in this hotel. This hotel is located quite faraway from metro station, not many restaurants around, but that is not a good concern for me because I just need to fill up my stomach and I am good with it. The room is a little small but quiet with wifi,...

This hotel was spotless ! The cleanest of all the 4 we've been during this tour in China. The room rates are also quite affordable making the deal even sweeter. Yes, the rooms were indeed not as big as in the other Hotels we've been in China (as other reviewers have already mentioned) but still not as small as they...

The staff are polite and helpful. The room is clean and reasonably sized. A good spread for breakfast. It felt like an oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle. The wandering peacocks added to the ambience. The metro is about 20 minutes by foot. Not close enough if your hands are full...

I loved staying at Lotel. I am from the states and was slightly concerned with the language barrier, but I was able to communicate with the staff very well. I met people from all over the world that were also staying at Lotel, which was a great experience. Breakfast was amazing, they had a chef that would cook you eggs,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
L'otel opened its doors in late 2008 as Shanghai's first totally non-smoking hotel, and one of the first to seriously pursue green living. It was the first in Shanghai to incorporate live plant walls, that not only improve air quality but are extremely easy on the eyes. It boasts a garden that is organically fertilized, MSG free food, energy saving LED light bulbs, hand ground soy-bean milk for breakfast, Simmons dual coil beds and even Tempurpedic pillows, proving you don't need to spend much or look far to find this hidden gem tucked away in the hustle and bustle of central Shanghai. Family run and owned, the pervading warmth and soulfulness brings guests a sense of community rarely found elsewhere. Come, see, and experience the L'otel for yourself. ... more   less
