We were satisfied with our one week stay in this apartment. Don't be discourage when you enter the building and the room. This is not a trendy and new place. But you don't stay there for the building. You stay there for the great location, helpful and friendly staff. Room is spacious with fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and washer.
First night there was a problem. We could not sleep. The double bed and the sofa bed are so hard. By 2:30AM we put the mattress of the sofa bed on top of the double bed. It worked. Next day we asked for an extra comforter to add more cushion on the bed. We also folded the sofa bed and we got more space. From then on room worked perfectly fine. As days went by, we came to like the room more and more.
Great fast free WIFI in room, it has a water fountain cost 25 Yuan for a big container of water. Pots are old but you can bring cooked food in room or eat outside. Lots of eateries nearby. There are 4 restaurants in front of apartment, your landmark when you're looking for the entrance to the building when you first arrive.
Location is great. 5-10 minutes walk to metro and bus stops. Metro Line 2 from Airport to Jing'an Temple or to Pudong Airport. 15 minute walk to Airport bus terminal near Jing'an Temple ( bus #2 from and to Pudong Airport for 22 Yuan each way).
Entrance to apartment is at Yuyuan Branch Rd. (not Yuyuan Rd or Wulumuqi Rd(their St. address). Reception is on the 19th floor.
Lots of groceries and a supermarket nearby.
Evelyn and Weston are always there ready to help even with their limited English. We don't speak Chinese either. Cleaning crew are honest.
Price is very reasonable.
Check in and check out is fast no problem. They have 24 hour reception. There is security in the building.
I will stay again in Skiline apartment when I go back to Shanghai.
