    I originally booked this Hotel through Expedia as it ticked most of the boxes; free breakfast with room rate, swimming pool, fitness centre, and for the affordable room rate, not far from Metro stations: South Shaanxi Road (10 minutes) Huaihai Middle Road (7 mins) and Nanjing West Road (12 minutes) Pros: Nice location in a nice district of Shanghai with fashion shops, cafes, restaurants and craft beer bars plentiful. At least 3 metro stations on different lines in walking distance. Strong, Hot shower. Cons: Very disappointing buffet breakfast, not many choices, terrible coffee. If you want a real freshly ground espresso it's an extra 40 RMB! The beds are your typical Chinese rock-hard standard and do not cater for the feeble Western spine. Especially if you have chiropractic problems and not a side-sleeper. Something that the Hotel do not advertise is that if you want to use the pool and fitness center, they are not included in the standard room rate! it's actually 100 RMB extra to use the pool and fitness centre per use! They encourage you to upgrade to a deluxe room for 100 RMB extra per day for unlimited use if the pool and fitness center. Swimming caps in the pool are also mandatory! if you haven't brought your own, they will happily supply you one for an extra 100 RMB! Furnishing, cupboards, shelving and carpet in room is all dated and in dire need of renovation. I could go on, but when you only have a 1500 character limit!?

    I like everything else except inside the furniture and the base room area because the furniture are poor and the base tub water can’t go through it at same time.

    I used to stay in this hotel everytime I come to Shanghai for business reason. Price is reasonable though the hotel is located in the city centre. Metro is within walkable distance.
