I'm impressed on the house-keeping service, even on the first day I checked-in in the afternoon, the staff noticed and would do house-keeping for me so I can have an excellent experience when I return hotel later at night. I didn't expect that, I expect that housekeeping would only happen on the day after, this quality of service is impressive....

Hotel looks nice and staff are friendly and helpful. However £8 for a can of coke and £35 each for a cold breakfast with tea and coffee stewed having been made hours before. Horrible overpriced. Very unsatifying. Air con not very good but necessary even in January. Would dread it if it was warm out.

Second time staying at this hotel. Great location and well appointed rooms. Beds are hard as a rock, so depending on your firmness preferences, this could be a problem. Otherwise, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is the highlight here with massive and tasty offerings. Unfortunately the staff at the restaurant is inefficient, unfriendly and unwilling to help. Ignore the...

Lovely room. Very comfortable . Great breakfast. Just around the corner from metro jing an temple line 2 👍. Expensive restaurants and bars. An American beer was 5 x the price as the Chinese bar over the road . A business hotel not for tourists really.

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.
