    I arrived a little earlier and I wanted to take a nap and in order to get the room before 12, you have to pay half a day. A little smoke smell in the room, but i think it was from Shanghai air not hotel.

    No real complaints.

    Room way too hot.

    • Standard Double Room

    It was extremely hot in my first room, over 28 degrees, and switching on the Airco resulted in a higher temperature. The second room was still too hot (23 degrees) and also not possible to get the temp lower.

    • Stayed 7 nights

    Staff in the reception seem to not understand the concept of deposit. My room fee was around 4000rmb and they wanted me to pay 8000rmb for the room, being 4000rmb for the deposit!!?? I said 4000rmbs deposit was ridiculous and that normally it would be around 500rmb. The lady said 500rmb is for one night and they have to multiple this 500rmb for the number of nights... after some time arguing I ended up paying 7000rmbs. (deposit was obviously cancelled at the end of my stay)

    Room was very comfortable. Gym is a bit too small and old but still ok for a basic workout.

    Generally the hotel was excellent. Only downsides were the reception not finding my booking for ~15 minutes (not a discussion you want to have after a long journey) and several pieces of equipment in the (small) gym not working.

    nothing too bad.

    It was 4 star comfort for a good price. Location is central but a bit of a walk from metro station but exit 3 of Jiangsu Road station was about 6-8 mins walk. Jing'an Temple station is also 12-15 mins walk. But walk to both the stations is quite nice with interesting surroundings. A nice thai restaurant outside the hotels a few buildings down. I will definitely consider it for my future stay.

    The reception stuff is unfriendly.I did not hear any good morning or good afternoon. I experienced this with several stuff including receptionist and doorman. Therefore I do not make a judgement according to the one person. They exchanged money very low and did not give receipt. The rooms furtinure was very old. I won't stay there anymore.
