The hotel was quiet. The staff was very kind. They said that the room we had bought in Expedia was not available at the hotel, that it was a mistake. At the end, they solved the problem and gave us a Suite for four people. The surroundings are not nice.
I loved my room and its old world decorative charm and the location of the hotel is excellent, especially for the reasonable discounted price I paid. The bed was hard and the staff OK by Chinese hotel standards. Still, I highly recommend this hotel if looking for a reasonably priced, well located, charming option in Shanghai.
I was there for 8 days. The room service was very good and the staff was always available when I asked for help or services. Due to the fact that my flight was late in the afternoon, and I was allowed to check out late for two hours without paying extra money.
Hotel thru Expedia was excellent. Will need to take cabs as a twenty minute walk to either the #8 or #10 subway line. Hotel staff is very accommodating but few speak English. Room was spotless and overall a great value. Perfect for traveler on a budget.
