Exceptional 10,0
Unique Find, Local Vibe, Great Value
This was a unique find - a series of interconnected lane houses renovated to form a hotel. Located amidst actual lane houses, you get a very local vibe and a real slice of life in Shanghai. At the same time, it was close to the gentrified neighbourhood of Xintiandi, giving you a lot of options in terms of food and shopping. Our particular room was a 2-floor loft, with one single bed on the ground floor, and a double/queen bed on the very roomy loft area. One negative was that the airconditioning does not quite reach the upper loft area (because of the 2-floor configuration), unless you leave it whilst you are out of the hotel. The bathroom (particularly the shower), was quite small, although quite clean. The sink is located outside of the bathroom, on a little island counter that also contains a washing machine and refrigerator. All the basics we there as well - hotel water kettle, hair dryer, toiletries, free wifi. Free coffee is also available at the lobby 24/7. The roof deck was also a great place to hang out if the weather is cool enough. The price was extremely reasonable, especially considering the great location and uniqueness of the property.

Perfect for Short Trip for 2
GREAT for a short trip for 2: budget price, VERY convenient location (5 min. walk to Xintiandi and 2 metro stations), clean and new reception with a snacks machine, has a common room with mini gym and rooftop chill area overlooking the surrounding local Shanghainese shikumen old houses! Our room for 2 was a small studio flat. Small, but it was in new condition and lovely minimalist interior design, and the cozy loft was great. Bathroom and pantry was clean, and they provided complimentary water every day! Pillows/double bed mattress was a little flat, but not a huge problem for a short trip. Walls not so sound proof, so we could often hear noises from the hallways and adjacent family rooms. Surprise highlight was the local food shop right next to the hotel, which sold local Shanghainese breakfast like dumplings, scallion bread and soy milk for a great price!

Clean hotel with friendly staff
The hotel is clean, and no cigarette smell which often found in Mainland hotel. Room is exactly what I saw from The only shortcoming is that the wall are poorly soundproofed.

Great location, easy access to metro and walking distance to many museums and public spaces (including 30 min walk to the Bund). No on-premise restaurant/bar, but there were small breakfast vendors right next door in the AM and hotpot joints at the south end of the street in the PM. Also, two blocks east were multiple 24-hour convenience stores. Apple Maps had a hard time finding the location (still listed under the old name, "Yinongmeiyu Hotel (New World Branch"), but Google Maps had no trouble finding it. I reported the issue to Apple, but have not seen an update yet. The loft room was good overall, but had some quirks. Built-in all-in-one washer/dryer for free laundry, plenty of space to move around in the room, and free wifi. Unfortunately, the room had no outside windows for ventilation, and it suffered from moisture build-up in the room, which made the room smell musty. I left the bathroom fan running 24/7 and the third day the air was much cleaner. The walls showed signs of recent repair, which I'm sure had to do with water damage. The last quirk was that the room had no lock-box. I had no issues with items going missing, but I also did not have peace-of-mind. Very little noise, and multiple staff fluent in English were very helpful.
