Don't stay here
The location is the only positive.
First of all, the first room they gave me, the lock didn't work. I literally open the door without using the key. The second room they gave me had a broken light fixture by the bed stand. The bathroom bathtub was scratched and discolored. The water pressure was nothing short of horrible. The beds were massively uncomfortable. The gym was not open. And they told me it would only be open if there was a conference going on at the time. That is absurd since they advertise at the gym is open during 14 hours a day. Overall the hotel is just old and crappy and not worth a dollar of your hard-earned money
Location was good. About a 10 min walk to Jingan subway.
The one thing that really rubbed me the wrong way was they charged about $6 for internet in the room, but offered it for free in the lobby. However, they discouraged people from using it by placing 0 chairs in lobby, except for around a cafe with explicit signs that sitting there requires purchasing food or drinks at the cafe. Who ever heard of a hotel with 0 chairs in the lobby? It's a really cheap move.
I appreciate the hotel's housekeeping staff very much.
I found it so difficult to communicate with concierge staff in English. It would be more convenient if there were some staff at your front desk who can speak English well so that English- speaking guests like me will recommend your hotel to others.
The location of the hotel is very good to visit the shopping area of the city and it is not noisy at all even if close to the roadway. Staff is nice and helpful whenever their English is quite poor for a 4 stars hotel.
Breakfast is not included and costs too much. Fridge bar inexistant. Room to small for being a deluxe. Then I personally did not like (my man yes of course!) the presence of too many easy going women at the bar during the night........................
Excellent location close to many facilities, very friendly staff - not always speaking english but willing to assist you
Very high cost for use of internet! Very noisy - some kind of turbines working day and night just outside our window!
The King Size bed.
Avoid the Chinese massage place at the 3rd floor.
