Reviewed 26 October 2014 via mobile

I stayed a week here and had no complaints with the room and basic facilities. The breakfast was mainly Chinese style with very few western options. The coffee was appalling (a particular issue for me in the mornings) although there was tea and instant coffee in the room that helped matters a little.
The restaurant attached to the hotel wasn't bad at all but again served Chinese dishes only as you'd expect.
The staff were not that knowledgable of hotel policy. On one occasion I was told different things by different staff. Somewhat frustrating in that case. Lots of very young staff.
On the whole not bad but could do with a breakfast overhaul.

This hotel is located adjacent to a major new academic construction project. They are building a new university a few blocks from the hotel, and there are significant other academic facilities here. This region is far from downtown Shanghai, so if that is your goal, you're probably better off looking elsewhere. The main reason to stay here would be if you have business in this area, which is still (mid-2014) growing very rapidly.

I have seen a number of incorrect statements in this review. First, there IS internet available in the rooms. There is a wired connection which works very well, and I've been told that WiFi is also available, but that you need to ask at the front desk to get it. While, like everywhere in China, it's behind the "Great Firewall" this should not be a major impediment for foreigners with VPN capabilities. Note also that there is at least one English (and I think one German) news TV channel (News), which suited me fine.

The rooms are very nice, comparable to a standard Marriott room you might find worldwide. The bed is comfortable. There is a desk for work. The tea service includes 2 satchels of the standard chocolate/coffee mix, and both black and green teas, which is refreshed daily. The tap warns against drinking the tap water (normal in most Chinese cities). A local advised me that boiling (to make tea) was fine (no serious industrial contamination). Likely won't hurt you for a few days regardless (with boiling). There are also two provided bottles of drinking water each day.

I would agree that this hotel is not really "international" in the sense that there isn't a lot of English documentation in the rooms, and the food options are traditional Chinese, not "western style". However, IMHO there is little point in coming to China if your goal is to eat hamburgers. The on-site restaurant has both high and low-end food options. If you just eat in the main restaurant, the food is ok, but nothing special. If you go next-door you can get some very nice food. Yes, Chinese breakfast habits are not equivalent to what most westerners eat.

I'm not sure that the concept of "no-smoking" exists in China, but given the smog in most Chinese cities, it would almost be pointless anyway :^) There is a definite smoky odor throughout the hotel, so if you are sensitive to such, you might want to look elsewhere. It hasn't caused me any problems.

Overall, I'd say it compares quite favorably to the other "international" hotel I stayed at in Beijing. If you're looking to have a "Luxury" experience, you should probably go downtown to one of the hotels catering to such tastes. For my own business travel I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

I arrived at the "hotel" at 20:30 and was lulled into a false sense of security by the room which was spacious and well-appointed. I found the room-service menu which was limited in the extreme and called down for a sandwich. Nothing available. Service stops at 20:00.

An "International" 4-star hotel in Shanghai in the 21st. Century where it is impossible to even get a simple sandwich and a glass of beer after 20:00? Where beer is not actually available?? Where the even the minibar is just an empty hole???

I went to vent my spleen on the duty manager who eventually said there might be some food in the restaurant but when we entered it was to find numerous members of staff sitting around, feet up on the chairs and smoking. Under no circumstances would I have eaten here even if food had been available. Which it wasn't.

Next thing, no wifi in the rooms and then when you think things cannot get any worse, no international television channels either.

Even accepting that this is a hotel out on an industrial park does not forgive these standards. Foreigners travelling to do business in Shanghai should be impressed not depressed.

This is not an "International" hotel, it is not close to being 4-star and it is most certainly not a good advert for the great modern international city of Shanghai or for 21st. century China.

Absolutely terrible.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel and travel to and from the area.

MARGINAL: This Chinese hotel is located in an industrial technology park midway from the airport to the downtown area. You're not likely to stay here unless you have specific business nearby. Sans a small coffee shop and mini-mart, there is nothing within walking distance. You may find it difficult to get a taxi to this location.

The hotel itself is relatively new and the front desk staff were relatively friendly and spoke moderate English. However, they are not adjusted to western requests and thus lacked some international elements.

The property appeared in good condition and of modest quality (Courtyard level). Rooms were nicely appointed. Free wired Internet and desk area. However, the TV lacked any int'l channels. Bedding was comfortable and lighting adequate. The bathroom was nicely tiled and decent size but lighting was quite dim. There is tea/coffee service in the room, but no ironing facilities (I assume I could have called for press my suit).

The restaurant should be avoided at all costs. It's not expensive but clearly not serving to western or even higher level asian standardsl. It was a "free for all" at breakfast. Basically, too few seats and too many patrons.

Having said that, the staff did indeed try and were polite, they simply don't know what the modern world requires.

Would I stay here again? NO. While the price was inexpensive (~$70/night), I would opt for a downtown hotel and pay more. If, however, I was forced to stay here again would I freak out? Well ni, the room itself was fine and of modern std and for 1 night would be fine, longer though and I'd be searching for other accommodation.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times - it is very conveniently located for my work. The hotel is modern, well appointed and comfortable - the rooms are very good, big and comfortable, with an excellent shower. The only problem with tis hotel is the breakfast. The breakfast is a mixture of chinese and western, which is fine, but when the hotel is busy, the brakfast room is too small so finding a place to eat can be difficult. Also, the staff are sometimes a little slow at refilling whatever is needed. However, despite the limitations of breakfast, the other aspects of the hotel are good.
