Very close to cnetre of the JingAn area, near the Sephora and big shopping malls. There is also the walking shopping street, a lot of shops and resturants for your selection. The first impression was the smell of the lobby, was disappointed at the beginning, which I think they need to be improved. But the receiption was so nice and warm welcoming. After checked in and got in to the room. I was shocked, WAO.... what a nice hotel and the room is huge huge.... Luxury looks, features, around 80SQM, huge living room with Kitchens etc... You can have big meeting there and invite tens of friends to have party :-) The place is a bit busy, so you MUST have DIDI apps to order the Taxi, otherwise there is no chance you can get a taxi. Unless you take the METRO, which is next door and access to a lot of popular places in Shanghai. I will definately refer this hotel to my firends....
"Fortress of tranquility"
From the small lobby with a very modern wall projection you take the lift up to a dark corridor with thick carpets and land in your room that is tastefully furnished, very well equipped, very quiet, spacious and charming. Breakfast is served in a kind of living room with cooks that make you scrambled eggs or omlet and great, strong coffee. And all that in a central part of Shanghai. What more could you want'
The rooms was nice, clean and good. The locations was not was I am used with. Check in and out, with nice personal. Breakfast was not that big. The location was near to metro, that was good. Not good to get a taxi to the hotel from the Bund.
"Large room, great location, reasonably priced"
Stayed for 4 nights in early winter. Took the Maglev and then to a connecting green line train from Pudong airport. I must say it was pretty quick and easy connection. On arrival at the hotel, I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the rooms! I cannot recall whether they gave me an upgrade, but it was a corner room and the room had a living space, a dining area, a separate bedroom and a small kitchenette. If you have guests or friends, the space is more than sufficient to play host to a party of 4! As the room was large, the air-conditioning (or heating rather) took a while to heat up the room during winter. The windows appeared to do their job keeping out the cold. I don't live in a cold climate so I'd say it did a pretty good job. The hotel sits about a 5 minute walk from the station entrance to the Nanjing West Station on the red line and is quite literally surrounded by plenty of food options (there are cafes, restaurants, coffee houses etc). Two minutes walk and there are a couple of mini-marts (i.e., think 7-11) where you can get some snacks, bread or coffee. Nanjing West road itself sits just adjacent to the hotel and there are shops and malls along the stretch of Nanjing West road (in fact, I exited from the airport right at a H&M, and then shortly after, I saw a huge Uniqlo just round the corner). In the evenings, the particular stretch of Nanjing West road can get pretty scenic. I was surprised that there were not that many cars on that stretch of road so that adds to the charm I guess. Hotel staff (from concierge to the housekeeping) were very polite and I encountered no problems at all during my stay. On departure day, I had an early morning flight and the hotel called for a taxi - journey was around 35 minutes (which was shorter than expected) but I was assured that that was unusual - I believe the hotel usually suggests to cater around an hour due to traffic. If I recalled correctly, there was a small weights room with some basic weights, a running machine and a laundry washing and drying machine if you prefer to do your own laundry. If I had to gripe, I'd say that the living n dining area and the corridors are pretty dimly lit (maybe its the hotel theme or something). I could have done with slightly more light (or at least in the living / dining space, the availability of light). All in all I'd give it thumbs up for its location and size of the rooms. It is not a big hotel chain so maybe you might not get the frills of a large gym, swimming pool or a full 100 course buffet breakfast etc, but the staff, the charm of a boutique hotel and location (and all for a fairly reasonable price for a hotel in Shanghai) all made up for that.
Nice, bright modern hotel with some funky/arty decor. Going to sleep under multiple images of Mao Zedong is an experience I'm unlikely to get anywhere else. Room (fifth floor) was mercifully quiet, considering how bustling the area is. Blackout blinds were a welcome addition. Lots of space for the money (I paid about the same in New York and got about a quarter of the space). Bed was comfortable, but I found the pillows too soft and unsupportive. Doors tend to close noisily, but otherwise sound-proofing within the hotel seems OK. Room service was remarkably efficient; I'd go to breakfast and put the 'make up the room' sign on the door and return within half an hour to find everything finished. Multiple complimentary bottles of water were an excellent (and essential) touch. I didn't really use the kitchenette, but if I'd known where to buy the ingredients I could certainly have made good use of it. Internet was OK, sometimes needed to change VPN server, but didn't encounter any real frustrations. Breakfast was OK too, but staff need to be told that an americano coffee is not just a very, very large espresso! Oh, and don't touch the butter. I didn't take the afternoon tea, it didn't fit my schedule. Tables in the cafe are either very high or very low; you get used to it. Staff on the front desk were mostly charming and had good English; staff at breakfast had enough English to get by (I have some Mandarin, but not really enough). Note that they take a large deposit at check-in and this is refunded at check-out. My western credit card (Visa) didn't seem to cause any problems. I arrived at about 10am and my room was ready, which was nice (but don't count on this!). Location is fantastic, almost right on top of the metro station (take exit #4). You can get on the metro at the airport and get off at West Nanjing Road without changing lines. They've done a good job with this hotel, and it's hard to find fault with it. Was the best possible option for a westerner suffering mild culture shock.
