The worst Stinking Motel Ever (it is a trap!)

I checked in at the hotel around 3 PM. The Hotel is actually a Motel by International Standards. It smells bad everywhere. The Staff are spaced out and do not look like they want to be there. A I entered the room, it smelled so bad that my head started to spin and I could not breath easily. I turned on the airconditioner hoping that the smell will go away, but it got worst. The room is small, the carpet is dirty with small creatures occupying the under-bed. The sheets had siemen on them. Do not stay in that hotel even if they offer you a discount. I had to forgo the money I spent and leave the hotel right away; I got a real five start hotel for the same price. I will never stay in a nasty hotel (motel): it is a trap!

Horror Hotel

The hotel is dirty, rooms smelled bad, and linen has obvious stains on them. The staff are rude and barely spoke English. The hotel advertisements stated that Seagull on the Bund is four-stars hotel: it is a motel by any standard and does not even meet one-star rating. I left the hotel in the first hour because of the terrible smell. Never, never stay or get close to that nasty hotel.

Dreadful hotel

The bathrooms were dirty. I had booked three rooms, and there were stains on the carpets. In china, when you check out in most hotels the cleaning staff go to the room and examine it and the mini bar, which is normal. In this particular hotel, we had left behind some expensive foods 9which was meant as a gift) in the fridge, and despite it been checked by staff, it was not reported to us and more than likely it was kept and eaten for them selves. The manager was very abrut when we tried to contact the hotel on the above issue. Apart from this, the breakfast that we paid for, was of very low quality and I would certainly advise anyone else not to stay in this hotel in the future. As mentioned above the rooms were not clean, the tiles in my bathroom were cracked and I could go on … Stay away.

Air Conditioning

The hotel had turned offthe cold air and the room was hot as hell. The carpet should have been replaced a long time ago. When I raised the issue of the heat in the room I was told that the cold air had been turned off because it was the fall season. I would recommend that everyone avoid this place unless they are willing to take whatever they get!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right next to the Bund. Wonderful unobstructed view of all the skyscrapers and the river. If you are a walker and can manage the subways the location is fine, otherwise it is taxi and traffic time.
