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.

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

Not Recommended

[...].1) The shower didn't work. The shower knob fell off. Bathroom was flooded with water because the shower water didn't shoot straight, and was not adjustable.2) The hotel phone didn't work3) There was no mattress, only box spring.4) Different front desk person can charge you different amount of deposit. ---Quoted from the manager from the hotel.5) Terrible customer service. The manager and the front desk lady didn't appologize at all, and didn't want to help us at all even though it was not living condition. It was not till I warned my manager that I would wrote a review on Orbitz so that everyone in US could be alerted before they stayed in hotel, the manager upgraded the room for me. If you had to stay in this hotel, make sure not to book the one in side building.
