Slow check in & check out, went I wanted to exchange Money had to come back later because the staff on duty wasn't trained how to. Decent breakfast selection, many staff working but no service, no music made for an uncomfortable setting. Room nice, cleanliness good great shower. Staff service traing would go a long way in increasing the guest experience. With in walking distance to Shopping but not a lot of stuff immediately around hotel.

Good place to stay

Would recommend Sun, Jul 22, 2012
This hotel is in a great location. It's right in the heart of the French Concession and it's about a 7 minute walk to the metro. They were doing renovation while I was there so there was no view from my window. Staff was attentive and spoke English. Swimming pool and wi-fi in the room is not free (I think wifi was 60rmb for 24 hrs). Non-smoking room available.

very nice hotel

Would recommend Thu, Apr 22, 2010
We paid extra to have access to the gym and pool but the elevator didn't even stop on that floor. When we asked about going to the gym and pool area, we were told that it was closed for repairs until May (three weeks after our stay). They also raised the price of the breakfast 60% during our stay. Only one breakfast per day was included with our room. (they did refund the difference at checkout when I asked).

Shopping hint

My wife really enjoyed the inexpensive massage that was very close by. $11 for an hour.

Would recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2009
Overall staff was good, except checkout clerk, didn't seem to know what she was doing. Room was satisfactory but found long hair in bed and all over floor, I have crew cut. Don't think they vacuum the floor.

Shopping hint

Hotel is situated between Wei Hai Rd and Nan Jing Rd. Two major shopping areas of Shanghai. Xin Tian Di is within walking distance or RMB12 (US$1.75) cab ride. With lots of restaurants of different cuisines, clubs, movie theatres and shops. Several Starbucks are also within walking distance.

Very good value. The hotel was quite clean, and the staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. It was a bit distant from the nearest subway station, but still walkable.
