Very nice, unique room; bath tub in a open space and shower room in a separate space. Two air conditioners and ceiling fan are working great. There are many chest of drawers. Two small bottles of water are provided everyday. Staffs in front desk can speak English and they are very kind (expect for one slender girl... ). Breakfasts are so good; A nice gentleman cooked all (Since I selected Western style, so I don't know their Chinese and Japanese style dishes). I would stay for the next if I have a chance.
The stay was good. Staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was nice to have breakfast included.
The suite was large, stylish and very cool. Huge clawfoot bath tub and king sized bed. The only thing that bothered me was checkout is 12 noon and they called my room at 11:46 and said, "It's check out time!" to which I responded, "I have 15 more minutes." That was not a nice way to be told to leave -- early and rudely!
The hotel is great! One word of advice, do not allow a taxi to take you to the front door. Once you turn in the driveway, there is no place to turn around. We made that mistake once and ended up with a very unhappy taxi driver.
This hotel was recommended to me by friends in Beijing and I can gladly recommend it to you. My room was large with a very comfortable king bed and nice seating area with desk and sofas and a great bathroom that was, at least for my room, open to the rest of the room - so not ideal in all situations. Everthing was in fine condition overall. The walls had some marks. A new paint job would make the rooms look gorgeous. If you are looking for a standard, highend chain hotel, this is not your place. If you want have a romantic weekend, or stay at a place you will be excited to tell your friends about, this is it. The area around the hotel is park like with lots of trees and vegetation and the metro is a few blocks away. It is on a somewhat busy street so expect some street noise. I will return to this hotel on my next trip to Shanghai.
Hotel is AWESOME. Rooms are really large and comfortable. People are nice.
The rooms are beautiful. It is an old, historic building nicely refurbished to compliment the exposed brick, claw-foot tub, while having LCD TV, good internet, and very very clean. The location is only so-so with no grocery store nearby and 7 subway stops and a transfer to get to The Bund. The hotel is three blocks from subway Line 1. Good restaraunts are within a few blocks, a large mall is within 10 blocks. The neighborhood was safe and attractive. The included breakfast was not good. No fruit. A single small glass of OJ. Two eggs. No meat. Very minimnal and not enough to start the day.
