Standards differ

What constitutes custemor service in a 4 star hotel in China is very different to what it is in Europe and the US. Staff are undertrained, the managers are difficult to deal with and don't know how to properly manage a hotel of this standard. I stayed there for two days in one of the executive rooms with a city view, but I would advise paying for a superior room if you choose to stay here. The executive room was unclean, the carpet in particular showing a number of stains. Having read the hotel welcome booklet one is notified that if stains are found on the carpet then you will be charged 300 yuan for cleaning; however, after going down to reception to complain I was told that the carpet had not been replaced in 10 years and that I would have to put up with the stains as I paid less money for this type of room compared to the superior rooms. Receiving a number of responses similiar to this I remained at the front desk with the manager for a further half an hour before he finally upgraded me to a room without a stained carpet. He was not keen to do this however and on multiple occasions told me that he would find me another hotel if I wanted a cleaner carpet, if I had chosen to do this however then I would receive no money back. The superior room was of a much better standard but was what you'd expect as standard from a 4 star hotel and not as the superior suites. In terms of location the hotel is well located and one can get to the bund easily on foot or to the financial district on the metro. Tourist sights are also a short taxi drive away. As a final note I would advise to avoid the breakfast, when I went up to the restaurant I had to ask for almost the entire buffet to be replaced as much of it was stale or unpleasent. Such simple things as the staff not knowing how to store cereal correctly or not cleaning rooms correctly become irritating and for what they provide the room rate is expensive by Chinese standards.

Worst Onsite Restaurant

Forget the Chinese restaurant on the 3rd floor, non existant to appalling breakfast in all my travels. And I have been in 3rd world countries with much better breakfast. They ran out of items after checking me in, then waited 25 minutes to tell me tat it would take longer to cook. An absolute ripoff! The hotel management washes their hands of it and says - the restaurant does not belong to them. Just walk to the mall 3 streets away for food.

The Metropolitan mall on Nanjing St. Tons of restaurant and easy access to the metro. Buy a 1 day metro pass for 18 RMB - cheaper and less challenges for multiple tips. Avoid Site recommendations for Hotels, they try to palm off less than 2 stars as 4 stars.

Surprise Value from a special fare

The room was so reasonable that I upgraded to a "superior view room" and was pleasantly surprised by the suite it turned out to be with big windows facing towards the south and the Pudong skyline. Clean, big and comfy. Would stay here again. Also, pretty close to Metro stop Nanjing Road East.

useless staff

Staff will lie to you and tell you whatever to avoid having to do work. $68 RMB bottles of water. way overpriced for the quality of the hotel. Food is just terrible and no wireless internet in most rooms. The lobby connection is too slow to use. Nevertheless, cheaper than most hotels in the city and staff remembers to treat you like the cheapskate that you are.

Great location / view but no view

This was a pretty decent hotel with a great location to shopping and the Bund. The place is overall very nice and clean although the view they promise is not so good as the windows are so filthy you can barely see out of them. I would stay there again but if looking for an authentic Chinese experience.

If you are a Westerner looking for more English speaking area, I would check out the French Concession area. Really hip shops/restaurants too. It's a VERY long walk so take the Metro

Good location, but could be cleaned

The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was comfortable and clean except for the carpet. The carpet needed deep cleaning or replacement. Location was good and the room was quiet. Breakfast was just ok.
