I was at Tongji guesthouse when I went to Shanghai for a conference at Tongji university. The guesthouse had all the needed amenities. It was OK. The staff was also OK. There is nothing special about this place. But during the time I visited Shanghai, it was raining and the environment through my window was nice. Also I really liked... More

Stayed 2 weeks as we were here for business at Tongji University. The worse thing here is the cigarette smoke that came through into our room day and night ... maybe through the air con, not sure. On many occasions I saw men smoking in the lobby in plain view of reception staff and the 2 clear "No Smoking" signs.... More

Cleanliness: 2/5 Cost: quite OK. Location: quiet. Abt 5-10mins walk to Tongji University metro station. Info: Also known as Tongji Guesthouse. Average accommodation. Room wasn't very clean. There were stains on the walls. The cabinets are not clean. Dated interior and not well maintained. Wouldn't recommend for elderlies as there are no lifts to higher floors on most of their... More

Typically you get what pay for but the Tong Ji Guesthouse better than you would expect for 35 RMB per night. Is it glamorous? No. Is it sparkling clean? No. Does it have wifi in the rooms? No, but it has ethernet in the rooms and wifi in the lobby. Are the beds super comfortable? No. Does it have a... More

I was there for 2 weeks and I can't give a good note. Because the room was not clean. Unter the bed we can see a lot of things from another visitor. There are a lot of small and big cockroach and critters. I need to go a lot of time and ask to have internet because it doesn't work.... More

Stayed in this hotel for six weeks and the experience was by and large positive. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the breakfast, while monotonous, was fine. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating to guests' needs. Would rate it 3.5/4 stars in Western terms.

I've had two extended stays at the Tongji Guest House and for the price the location, convenience and quality can't be beat. It's off the street in a quiet secluded setting where the birds may wake you up first in the morning, yet it's in the middle of bustling Yangpu District with tons of shops, restaurants with about anything you...

I stayed here for just over a month and can tell you the rooms vary greatly. Friends of mine had a room in the main building, where the reception desk is, and it was much like a regular hotel. I had a suite that was more like an apartment--a great amount of space, but in an older building. The first... More

Basic and functional rooms near Tongji University. 5-10 minutes to the subway (which takes about 15 minutes to the center). Cleaness and furnishing of the room was okay. Unfortunately no Wifa and broken lan cables. Restaurant is good (only tried breakfast).

I stayed for three nights at the end of a ten day business trip. The room furnishings were adequate, even a little spartan, but the wired internet connection was free and fast (once I got the connection protocol sorted out). There is not really a place to keep clothes, and the safe was difficult to figure out. The highlights are... More
