This was a very nice hotel, and you can’t beat the price. The whole facility was clean and enjoyable, and the staff was great. While the hotel claims to have AC, it is central and turned off in December. When we arrived, our rooms were set at 26C. That’s WAY too warm for just sitting still, let alone sleeping! There was a tiny window to open that managed to cool the room by a couple degrees by the next morning, but it was still very warm. The location is probably great for conferences or work meetings, but I probably wouldn’t recommend it for tourists wanting to see the real Shanghai. It’s at least 30 minutes to the metro if you walk, and at least another 30 before you’re close enough to the tourist attractions to get off the metro. We came here at the end of our trip for some quiet and luxury, and we were glad we didn’t choose it for our whole stay in Shanghai simply because of the location. The hotel was amazing, though. We ate at two of the hotel restaurants (both delicious), and the entire hotel has a very comfortable atmosphere. As long as you’re not looking for something in the city center or walking distance to the metro, I would highly recommend this hotel.
