Rooms are quite cosy, overall the room for 2 persons: Toilet, shower, desk and sofa separated from the beds. It's 30 minutes far away from down town. The breakfast is not very tasty and I don't recommend to have dinner everyday. Average service.

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.

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less
