I'm very thankful to front office executive whose name is Green for his invaluable assistance. He speaks good English and helped to arrange my trip to Suzhou and advised me on how to get around Shanghai. His advice helped me to save a lot of money on transportation.
I know this looks like a nice cheap hotel in the pictures but this is not the case- I'm sure the pictures were taken at least 30 years ago.
The hotel is disgusting and old. In our bedroom when we arrived, I'm sure if the floor had been swept. After a few days, we wanted out sheets changed so we took the sheets and covers off, only to reveal wee stains all over the duvet and the bed. Also, the bed was hard as nails. I think it was just wood in the middle of it. When new sheets were put on, they too were stained and had holes in them- they also weren't ironed (maybe I'm asking for too much here?)
The walls were also peeling at every point.
The cleaning staff were friendly, although they did not understand any English. And the reception staff also did not understand any English so we stopped asking them for help as they couldn't and didn't seem to want to help us.
My honest review is that, unless you're a backpacker looking desperately for somewhere to stay, do not stay here.
Brilliant for a stopover at Pudong. I had an early morning flight so I slept here on my last night in Shanghai. The shuttle bus wasn't running, but they easily organised a taxi for me. Would definitely recommend.
We stayed here for five nights and enjoyed how centrally located it was. The staff were very helpful and our room was just what we needed. The air conditioning was our favourite part as it was very warm during our stay in Shanghai and we appreciated being able to control the temperature in our room - which wasn't the case in many other hotels!
