It is a good hotel if you have in mind it is not near Shanghai downtown; the nearest subway station is about 10-15min walking. There's not too many places to eat around, maybe those shopping malls near the subway station; nevertheless it is a hotel that serves you if you just want to save some money.
The staff is not too good in English, but this is something you will see often in China.
I only stayed in Shanghai for three days, so the location of the hotel is my top priority. This hotel can be connected to the 2 major airports by metro system directly. Besides the hotel is within walking to all attractions like the Bund, Yu garden, Nanjing Rd...etc, and there are numerous inexpensive restaurants and shops around it. The staff are friendly, but with limited english ability. The room is clean, but if you are picky, you had better bring your own towel, soap and shampoo. After all, it's a budget hotel. I have no complaint
considering its price and great location..
Room is small but clean. Bed is comfortable, with wifi. Surrounding area not a busy one. If you need a good night sleep, and don't mind the area, this is a great place. About 8 mins walk from the metro line 3.
We were surprised by the harsh way the reception welcomed us and a bit disappointed that our non-smoking room strongly smelled like people were smoking frequently in that room. But the room was absolutely clean and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was better than we expected (according to references we read before) and included continental and asian varieties. The WIFI worked well, just in front of the reception in the entrance hall as well as in the breakfast area.
If your don't speak Chinese you need a translator. I used Google Translate in offline mode. It worked well and the staff responded positively. I like to walk and I found many interesting place nearby the Hotel. For long excursions to some of the central city, i.e. Bund, Nanjing street, the metro was about 2-3 blocks away.
