Excellent value

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.

very nice hotel

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).

Good place to stay

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.

Good location for the price

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.
