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,

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.

Good for a place to sleep for a few days

5 minutes to the #9 metro and thus very easy to get to many of the central business centers in Pudong and Puxi. The room was clean and large enough to handle only an overnight bag with the internet way too expensive. The bed was not to hard and not to soft and being on the upper floors street noise was 99% suppressed. The breakfast, not included in the package, was reasonably priced and the selection was as good as a typical 3 star.Several good (Chinese & 'Western') restaurants within 10 minutes walking where you want to eat out.[...]
