I got off the train in Shanghai without a hotel reservation, but was planning to pop into a cafe to check the internet for a hotel when a nice old lady offered to find me a room.
Well, I ended up with this hotel.
The walls look like they are covered with grime, footprints, and dried fluids of unknown origin. The carpet smells like carpet shampoo or Chinese white liquor. I have yet to shower.
When I called to ask for another room, I was told they are all like that.
Impossible to get a refund, because I paid the "nice" old lady at the train station rather than the hotel itself.
2 lessons learned; never return to this hotel and don't use hotels offered at the train station.More
