I stayed here for the second time on a business trip - I can honestly say I don't have a single bad thing to say about this hotel. The service is great - I needed a room change and it was sorted instantly without a million questions, I needed my coffee machine "repaired" - the service guy was there within...

Perfect location for a stay in Shanghai. Very active commercial neighbourhood with plenty of restaurants and malls in the area. Hotel is clean, with a spacious and attractive lobby. The restaurant at level two offers some delicious Shanghainese cuisine options. Negative points to consider: breakfast is definitely not worth the €30 charge, with a basic spread typical of establishments at...

I'm on a month-long business trip in China, Shanghai being my second stop where I'm staying for two weeks. I'm totally blown away by the level of attentiveness and service shown by Sandy (Manager responsible for breakfast shift) and her chef. The food in the pic may be simple stuff but It totally warmed my heart on a Sat morning....

Walk to Jing 'An Temple, the Metro, plenty of shopping and lots of restaurants. Hop on line 2 at Hongqiao Airport and ride 7 stops to Jing'An. Exit 3 is just a few steps to the hotel entrance. There is a convenience store across the street. The nice thing about Jing'An area is that there are a lot of restaurants....

The hotel has a good location, right in the heart of things.The room was medium size, a little bit down at heel, but good bathroom and comfy. Very Chinese beds (hard!) but bed linen lovely. Definitely recommend this for a decent value business hotel

I chose this hotel after carefully reviewing several others in the area, what is known as the French Concession, although the Jing'an temple, only a block and a half away, might be a more precise landmark to know its location. Shanghai is a huge city and there is not just one great area to stay but several, and this is...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
