the hotel is well decorated and equipped - good value for money. The rooms are big, wifi is sketchy, and the breakfast is pretty good for a small hotel. One of the few Chinese hotels I've stayed at not aimed at international market that doesn't smell like an ashtray! what lets it down though is the awful booking system: -... More

It was a class trip and we stay here. Really liked the room, it was big (2 beds coz we shared rooms), the beds were comfortable and the room was well kept. The buffet breakfast was delicious, traditional Chinese breakfast. It's ideally located close enough to a small shopping district. Close by also are night clubs, quite a few in... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is a bit old, however everything worked well. The rooms are a bit dark, the aircondition did not Work optimal. Check in and check out went well and quick. I did not use the restaurants.

Honestly, I can’t say it’s terrible but there are far better hotels of a similar price and level to stay in around the same area. I’ve stayed here several times for business (not by choice) the reception staff can be abrupt and impolite and don’t appear to understand service. The rooms are tired and need renovation although appear reasonably clean... More

Ok for transit stay or 1 night stay. Walk in rate approx $60 including breakfast. Building is old and run down. The lobby is huge however not a single seating area for guests. They do not have adaptor rental available for international guests. Rooms are a bit dark and just acceptable. The plates and cups used for breakfast were mostly... More

Chosen this hotel as I was on transit and wanted to stay somewhere near city center within limited budget. The room offered wasn't good (I avoid using the word bad). Room is dated (which is not a problem with me as long as it's clean) and in my opinion not well maintained. The bathroom floor was wet upon my arrival,... More

This hotel was substandard. The price was good at around $50 but it wasn't worth the lousy condition of the hotel. Carpeting is filthy. Overall, the hotel is very worm and has seen much better days. Worst of all is that the beds are like rocks and are very uncomfortable to sleep on. The breakfast was OK but everything else... More

This namesake hotel is in a great location. Near the Jing'an temple and great shopping, it is an oldworld property, with lovely architecture, but is a bit dated. The front desk service was excellent, and even the bellman spoke a little English! The room needed updating, and was acceptable for the price. It was roomy, a bit dark, but everything... More

It's the 2nd time I've stayed here, but sadly this time it was even worse than the first. I was here (again) on business and booked an executive room on 20th floor. Check-in was reasonably quick on their dedicated 21st floor but the room was desperately dark and gloomy, not helped by the horrible grey and multiple-stained carpet! Not nice.... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
