Reviewed 26 November 2009

Good:
1. Convenient. Few walking distance to Nanjing Rd Pedestrian Street, shopping galore right at your doorstep! There's a 24hrs Convenient store on the ground level of the hotel.

2. Good cheap food nearby the hotel area. For Muslims, there's even a Chinese Muslim restaurant (halal) that serves great beef noodle (10 yuan) & other noodle & rice dishes just opposite the main entrance of the hotel.

3. Most of the front service staff speak english. They even help you write the chinese character from english translation (for easy navigation because most Shanghainese don't understand english). They're also helpful & friendly. Even the chambermaid, bellboy & other staff are friendly helpful people.

4. Rooms are clean though a little bit dusty. Beddings & towels are changed everyday. Toilet is clean.


Bad:
1. The street (alley) going to the hotel is not that pleasant. (But it's just a few walks before you find "heaven" at Nanjing Rd Pedestrian Street)

2. The hotel uses central air-conditioning, so I could smell cigarette smoke from other rooms when the other guests smoke. (just open the window to clear off the smoky air in the room)

3. No refrigerator & no service of loaning the iron & ironing board. (bring in your own mini iron & drinks & sodas are cheap) - They have laundry service though.

4. Beds are hard - but it's all the same around China. (actually it's good for your back)

As a whole the hotel is great value for money. Would definitely use the hotel again!
