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.
I stayed here because I was taking the LSAT at the Shanghai Univ. of Finance and Economics and I picked this hotel for the convenient location. Glad I did, the LSAT test center was a <15 minute walk straight down Wudong Road. The hotel is really nice for the price. The only problem was that my room's temperature control system didn't work and it was waaaay too hot—it was about 0*C outside but inside my room it was seriously like 30*C/87*F. In fairness though I never told them about it/asked them to fix it so it wouldn't be fair to hold it against them.

the poor side is as such. . The staff are very unhelpful especially if you're a tourist. .. the bathroom gets clogged up often enough andits difficult to tell taxi drivers where this hotel is.
As a traveler with a budget, I wasn't interested in a five-star hotel with a gym or any of those amenities. There is a buffet-style restaurant on one of the floors. The receptionists knew enough English to check foreigners into the hotel. I was pleased that the hotel was located across the street from the Guoquan Road station of the Shanghai metro.
