True, there's no reason to stay in this area (nothing to see) BUT the apartments and the common areas are really comfortable, modern and kind of luxury that one cannot usually afford unless paying a fortune. The apartments are HUGE and extremely well equipped (two bedrooms, dining area, living room, fully equipped kitchen, 3 flat screens, Dolby system, DVD, i-pod player in bedroom, etc. good quality furniture and very good taste). One feels probably better than at home... Second good point is the metro (please note: Metro Station is not as announced for example in booking.com, the correct one is JINQIAO ROAD, LINE 6! and it is really just a 5-minute walk away (when leaving the metro station cross the main street and walk in direction to the big shopping area - Jinqiao Life Hub, go through the courtyards and once you pass the modern fountain, turn left, cross the street at the back of the mall and you will find the gate to the hotel (this is the shortest way). By underground you’ll get to any site in the centre in a 20-30 min ride. Third good point: I hate shopping centers but the mall just in front of the hotel is really practical if you want to have a dinner after an exhausting day in the city, there are about 20 different restaurants (the sushi one was just great) and a supermarket.
Well, the staff was friendly and trying to help but in general quite clumsy and inexperienced. Even if the atmosphere/decoration of the different areas in the ground floor is great, breakfast is definitely poor for this type of hotel. And unbelievable that there’s no breakfast the weekend or holidays...
