The hotel was quiet. The staff was very kind. They said that the room we had bought in Expedia was not available at the hotel, that it was a mistake. At the end, they solved the problem and gave us a Suite for four people. The surroundings are not nice.
I loved my room and its old world decorative charm and the location of the hotel is excellent, especially for the reasonable discounted price I paid. The bed was hard and the staff OK by Chinese hotel standards. Still, I highly recommend this hotel if looking for a reasonably priced, well located, charming option in Shanghai.
Hotel thru Expedia was excellent. Will need to take cabs as a twenty minute walk to either the #8 or #10 subway line. Hotel staff is very accommodating but few speak English. Room was spotless and overall a great value. Perfect for traveler on a budget.
I was there for 8 days. The room service was very good and the staff was always available when I asked for help or services. Due to the fact that my flight was late in the afternoon, and I was allowed to check out late for two hours without paying extra money.
Bordered by the Huangpu River and Suzhou Creek, the residential and multi-cultural Hongkou enjoys a premier setting opposite Pudong’s striking skyscrapers. For intriguing backstreet adventures, visit Huashan Road’s former Jewish ghetto, where Victorian brownstone buildings rub shoulders with small stores. For shopping and entertainment, head for prosperous North Sichuan Road.
