Budget hotel near Taicang Road arts district of Shanghai

This 486-room budget hotel opened in September 2007. This 37-story property has a wide range of room options, from small twin rooms to family suites with two or three bedrooms. Some rooms have balconies with city views, a nice extra at this price point. The hotel is a bit south of the main tourist track but just a 10-minute walk to the nearest subway station and to the Taicang Road arts district, which is considered the SoHo of Shanghai.

worth the money

Very good location is nearly the center of Shanghai..Airport shuttle bus station is one block away only at RMB 20. Subway #9 is also one block away, Xintiandi, Yu Garden, NanjingRoan and THe Bund is 20 minutes by the subway. Many restaurants around hotel and a Shopping Mall called Riyueguang Department Store is opposite. It is a standard 4 stars hotel.

Good deal

Nice clean and comfortable room. Easy access to everywhere. Broad band Internet access is free for the deluxe rooms, but not the standard ones. It would be nice if the hotel could provide WI FI. The only place in the building has WI FI access is at the coffee shop on the first floor across from the check-in counter.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Subway line #9 is within walking distance. The easiest and most inexpensive way to Hong Qiao Airport is to take city bus #806 for RMB 2 dollars. It took about 45 min from 打浦桥 to 虹桥机场T1 in the early morning. Then take the free shuttle bus from T1 to T2 (or vise versa) if necessary. The shuttle bus stop is by the door #6 on the departure floor at T1 and door #1 on the arrival floor at T2.

Dissappointing check-in

Arrived at the hotel at 2:30 but was told that the room was not available. Waited till about 3:30 before I could check in! Was told that due to the late check-out till 2pm, the room was not ready. This is not an explanation nor an excuse befitting a four-star hotel.

Great value for money

Very comfortable hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. It is near a major shopping mall with great dining options. Just a short walk to the Dapuqiao or Jiashan Road subway station. It is easy to get to main attractions around the city,

Don't expect any decent service

The rooms are tiny but tend to be clean. Stay away of this place if you are expecting some service from the staff. Good value if you book online, different prices at the front desk. I would recommend a different place although this is a good start point to shanghai, really close to the sub. Recommend it for just 1 night.
