Very comfortable and clean with great view (but no balcony) over towards the Bund and Pudong. Kitchen very handy for cheap meals and the deep-fill tub is great for two.
The bed was firm and very comfortable.
Overall a very good stay and would recommend it for anyone.
I've stayed at this hotel several times and travel to China very frequently. I've been to the best and worst China has to offer to be sure. I'm not fussy about amenities. All I ask for is a clean room, comfortable bed, nice hot shower with good pressure, and reliable internet. City Hotel has all of these things. Nothing fancy, so definitely not a vacation hotel, but if you approach China business travel same as me, you'll be satisfied. And for the price, can't beat it.
Nice room but other than that had a bunch of problems. We got charged 30 GBP for one average sized bag of laundry. Get it elsewhere if you need to.
Also, we asked to stay an extra three nights and were told it was fine, but each day we had a phonecall saying that we need to leave as we were due to check out. Then they blocked our key card. So everyday we had to go and inform someone that we had in fact paid for 3 extra nights and get our key card up and running again. The staff didn't seem to communicate with each other or keep any record of anything. Good location though
