We stayed here for a week this month to visit Shanghai and drop off our son for school. The hotel itself is very nice. Check in was pretty easy, though there were definitely some front desk employees
that knew more English than others. When we got to our room for 3 the pullout bed/couch needed bedding, but the lady I spoke with didn't know the English words pillow or sheets or blanket so had to get someone else to help me, who gladly did.
The room was very clean and the heater worked well and was quiet. The bed was comfortable and while the pull out bed was less comfortable it wasn't bad.
The view was sort of boring, but this hotel isn't in the downtown city. However it was about .8 km to the subway and we walked there each day. The hotel did offer a shuttle once a day that stopped by the subway and a few other places but the timing never worked for us. Also sometimes, early in the morning, there were taxis available, otherwise you need to ask the front desk for a taxi to come to the hotel.
One annoying thing about the room was the wall dividing the bathroom from the sleeping area was made of glass bricks, so if you turned on the bathroom night in the middle of the night it shone into the rest of the room (and woke me up).
The free included breakfast was very good with a good variety of Western and Chinese dishes, like noodles, rice, steamed veggies, steamed buns, noodle soup, cereal, toast, salad, fresh fruit, fried eggs, boiled eggs, juices, coffee, and tea.
Our biggest issue was the lack of restaurants nearby. There was a small restaurant in the hotel where we did eat once and it wasn't bad, but we didn't want to eat there daily. The closest restaurant was almost 1 mile away which is far when it's cold outside.
There was a business center, free parking, a few vending machines with snacks. However there was no ATM which would have been convenient.
Check out was smooth except we think we left our credit card there and the hotel is hard to get a hold out of outside of a long distance phone call so we just reported it as lost to get a new one.
The wifi was free and solid, we never had any issues.
The shower was always hot and the water pressure was good.
For the price and the proximity to our son's school we would definitely stay here again. [Less]
