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.

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,

great value for the buck-

Room was good, great value during the EXPO. Good location. not more than a 2 dollar taxi ride to major attractions. Only thing that wasnt good, just took a little too long to check in. But overall cant complain- Room is as good as a 5 star hotels but for 30% of the price of a 5 start in Shanghai.

Shanghai trip

This is a good comfortable Hotel at a good price and good location. the only issue I run into everything is the front desk finding my online booking. I have been here several times and 9 out of 10 times they cant find it.

nice location, small room

we chose this hotel/service apt for its location, with convenient public transport, bus to and from both airports, near metro station and quite a few restaurants near by. the room is a bit small, but the balcony is huge. bath room is clean and adequate. the front desk is effecient for check in and out. the only issue we had was the concierge. we told the concierge the night before we check out that we wanted to book a taxi to the airport early morning about 6:30am. there was no taxi the next morning when we check out. it was never arranged. luckily it was easy enough to hail taxi just outside the hotel
