Only there one night. Taxi had great difficulty finding property even after I contacted reception on mobile and asked them to advise driver how to get there from Shanghai HongQiao railway. Entrance not clearly signed.
Tired and hungry by the time we arrived in the evening so ordered room service hot meals that arrived to the room cold! We were quite disappointed.
The hotel is fairly new, the style oriental ageless splendour with chinese modernity. Well staffed I had to get use to not pouring my own coffee andwaiting to be served drinks in the hotel lobby from a silver tray. It was 2 nights of splendour, dressing for dinner to match the surroundings.
All the staff in the lobby and restaurant spoke good English. It is good to give staff time when communicating you can see them translating to make sure that they understand your question/s. At one stage we had 3 waiting staff studying a map to give directions and locate the hotel on a map.
The billing is accurate, the computer operated bill is set up like an old fashioned ledger book.
The rooms are well appointed, tv at the end of the bath, tropical rain forest shower, comfortable beds. The best pillows.
"Excellent hotel, close all forms of transportation"
Family stay, adult children's family having lived sparsely in China for several years stayed with Grandparents just arriving in Shanghai and fully enjoyed the amenities and location. We especially enjoyed the upscale and modern feel and attention to patron comfort. Being a botique hotel, the location may be considered odd, however, it is a perfect introduction to "life" in China! We WILL stay here again, upon our departure from China!
I chose this hotel as my usual one was fully booked.Also I wanted to be close to the Nanjing Road.
I also knew how to get to this hotel from the airport.(Maglev and Metro).
A far higher standard than the other hotel.
I decided one night to order a room service breakfast for the next morning so filled out the menu card and left it on the door handle outside.
At the appointed time it was delivered.
That night I decided to do the same again for the next morning,however a replacement menu card had not been left.
I had to go down to the Lobby to ask for one.
Completed and hung outside on the door handle again.Breakfast was again delivered at the appointed time.
However this time the food was cold,I just ate the toast and had the coffee and Orange Juice.
Never had another the rest of my stay
