The hotelstaf spoke english. Nice view of the bund at the evening. Nice rooms. Easy check-in.
The western menu was microwaved. The food in the hotel was overpriced. There is no metro nearby.
Wish the next visit the in-door pool and spa are ready for the in- house guest for free not for club members only....
so far so good keep-it -up....
We liked this hotel and it's good value for money. We stayed on the 23rd floor so any noise from the construction outside we didn't hear. The room was very comfortable and the bed wasn't hard like some in China. The location in a 5 minute walk to The Bund and 10 minute to Nanjing St, so it's very convenient. The breakfast was very good, there was a big variety of Chinese as well as Western food. Freshly made omelette or fried eggs. All the coffee in Chinese hotels is the brewed American style which we don't mind but if you are after an expresso type/cappucino etc go to Starbucks or the like when you're out. The breakfast tables are round so you are joined by other hotel guests and we met some really nice people from all over the world.
The constructiojn is because of the Expo so things will be finished at some point. Our friend stayed on the 7th floor and he could hear it so if you are a light sleeper ask for a higher floor. There wasn't anything we didn't like.
services - no one noticed you entering the hotel and queue up for check in
the room was great and the breakfast buffet was very good.
