"Not a good hotel"
The bad. The hotel itself is quite dated, even the renovated room such as the one I was in. Crowne Plaza Hotels are not what they used to be. The shower in my room did not have enough water pressured the difference between scolding hot and freezing cold was about 1mm of turn on the tap. Hard to get it to hold a constant, bearable temperature. The carpet is unclean in the room and through the hotel. The decor is tasteless, old fashioned and unimaginative. The good. The bed is comfortable and clean. The area that the hotel is in is quite good. Central, easy access to public transport and lots of restaurants, bars and cafes within walking distance. Overall a poor to average hotel. I'm sure there are better options nearby.
"Old and insect ridden."
My room was in need of rejuvenation. The carpet was worn and the furniture was worn and had minor damage. All the amenities functioned as expected but the ducted air conditioning was a bit noisy. My "non smoking" room smelled of cigarette smoke, as did the whole corridor of my "non-smoking" floor. My friend's initial room was awful, with an infestation of insets in her bed linen and mattress. When management changed her to another room, she described it similarly to mine - rather tired looking and in need of renovation. There is almost no food available after 10pm. We checked in at 10:40pm. The restaurant closes at 10pm. In the room there were two room service menus. The first menu is not available after 10pm and the second menu has a VERY limited range after 10pm. The breakfast was about average. Not good or bad.
This is a great hotel! It has fast internet, very comfortable beds, is very clean, all updated, and had a breakfast that was out of this world!! The staff was wonderful and concierge was quite helpful.
Very good value hotel. Check in was quick and efficient and the room was amazing, massive and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and sleep quality is good. Room has tea and coffee making facilities, a mini bar and ironing equipment. 2 bottles of water are provided a day along with free basic toiletries. The included breakfast was fantastic quality with a varied choice of Asian and western choices. Location wise it is a little way out from the centre of Shanghai but metro connections are close by. A good choice!
"Good price quality equation"
It is for sure not the best Crown plaza...but you can get deals of around 400 RMB per night incl breakfast. So value for money is still good. 400 meter or so walk to the subway. Breakfast is extensive. Hotel a bit dark. Still you can save a lot of money and still have 4 to 5 star quality.
