“Good Location for Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

I would recommend this service apartment if you're traveling with family. The service apartment was spacious enough and clean.

We were a family of 6, and this apartment served just nice for us.

Besides, the best thing about this apartment was the location. Good local food were all very near to the service apartment. And they were cheap! Would highly recommend this for the travelers with the love of food!

We stayed here for 5 days with our 2 daughters. We were coming from a 2 BR suite at the grand Hyatt in Beijing so at first it felt like a bit of a let down. But once we got used to it and some of the smells it was really a great place for a family. The location is excellent; we walked to people's park and yuyuan bazaar. There are also a lot of food places and markets within a block. It is also 2 blocks from metro line 8. We didn't have any of the service issues others mentioned; service is spartan but friendly. The gym was sufficient and the kids liked the pool. No wireless in the room, only cable wi fi, cable is provided. The only free think in the kitchen is the large water jug, there is a switch on the side to turn on the hot water option. Coffee and water in the fridge is not free. Overall a good value especially if space and location are higher priorities than 5 star service.

This hotel has excellent location in the heart of big S! Rooms are great for family and friends to stay. Maybe not luxury but for this price great. Bund you reach on 10min by walking. Views from window can be ok or great. Breakfast is ok but expensive close by you find others also like McD. You can also cook if you somehow want to make it... Bar is very unique small but nice atmosphere.

The Kitchen in our 3 bed apartment was very small and there's no western-style cutlery if you plan to eat & cook in.

The third bedroom is a single only so we had one on the sofa! Plus there's no wardrobe in there.

Towels are a scarcity - we had to keep asking - and when they do come they're past their best.

On the plus side it is spacious, there's a breakfast hall and room service is available. We didn't try their food so can't comment on quality.

Location-wise it's 25mins walk to the Bund and 20mins walk to Xintiandi plus line 8 metro is close by. There's lots of local eating places and mini-marts nearby if you don't want to walk.

I would recommend for those who are fine with the backpacker end of the market but if you want luxury then it's not for you.

We stayed in an Executive Apartment for eight nights with my wife and daughter of 2 years, and we really enjoyed it. We had requested an apartment high in the building and were assigned an apartment on 24th floor (out of 28th floors) – from here we had a magnificent view of the Shanghai skyline at night.

The hotel is located half a block north of Jingling Dong Lu, two blocks east from the concert hall and the southern part of the Peoples Square park areas. We found the location is ideal for Shanghai, in the center of all the major sights. If you as us like to walk when sightseeing you will be able to walk to most sights. Main sights and areas such as The Bund, Xintiandi, Huaihai Road (shopping), Nanjing Dong Lu (main walking street), Peoples Square, Shanghai Museum, The Old City and Yu Garden are all reachable within maximum 20 minutes walking. If going further out, Dashije Metro station is 5 minutes away connecting to the major lines.

Just off the hotel area, around Jingling Dong Lu you will find plenty of (good) Chinese restaurants, as well as McDonalds and Subway if you are more to western foods. As in most of Shanghai it can be a problem to order or read the menu if you (as us) do not read or talk Chinese. There are though several restaurants with pictures in the menus, some also with English dish names. Tip: Just 1,5 blocks west on Jingling Dong Lu you will find the Canton Fare restaurant preparing nice Malaysian/Cantonese dishes, having a menu with both English texts and pictures. They also offer take-away.

Just outside the hotel you find several super markets.

The hotel it is nice and clean, and the staff is helpful and speaks sufficient English. Our room was bit, with a living room with dining area, office, a small kitchen, bedroom and bath with bathtub. The apartment had a nice style, and was well maintained. All rooms (besides bathroom and kitchen) were equipped with A/C which is nice in Mach allowing heating the apartment. The Cable TV offered HBO, a local movie channel, ESPN and CNN in English and TV5 Mondi in French.

The bed was fine, maybe a bit hard for my taste. We had no problems with noise, either from the city nor from the other apartments. It was nice and quiet.

In the room only a cabled (paid) internet connection was available in the office. To use WIFI you had to go to the lobby, here though the connection was free. The connection was stable and had a sufficient speed.

We used the pool area a few times, which was really nice. The whole area as well as the pool is heated to a nice comfortably temperature (we stayed here in the winter). There is sauna, steam bath, and Jacuzzi but all of this is located in separate sections for men and women, only the pool is unisex.

We rented western style kitchen ware (a onetime fee of 10 RMB per set), which was nice. However the dish washing done by the cleaning staff of the dirty dishes was very sloppy, and we often found plates, knifes etc. still dirty after the maid had “washed” them – that was simply not in line with the standard you would expect.

All in all we had a very nice stay here, and would definitely stay here again and recommend the hotel. What we was missing to give the full 5 stars is a few more cable channels, wifi in the room and a notch up on the kitchen cleaning by the staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floors for a good view, and less noise from the streets.

Location was amazing great for first timers in Shanghai. Most major Shanghai inner city attractions are within walking distance; Nanjing Road Shopping pedestrian (15 mins), People Square (10 mins), the Bund and Yu Garden/ Old shangai.

Located a block away from Dasijie Metro station and from there, almost anywhere is accessible including Pudong airport.

Lots of eating places in nearby streets - eg Henan streets all selling Shanghainese as well as Szechuan food. For those who misses southern chinese/ South East Asian food, there is a very reasonable priced restaurtant - Glorious (I think it is called) on Jiangling street about 5 mins from the hotel.

Room Tip: If you are a non smoker, make sure that you ask for a non smoking or that refreshers have been appli...

Stayed there last week for 2 nights in the 3 room apartment. The apartment was really nice..Rooms are very well maintained and look new. They provide drinking water in the kitchen. There is a washing machine and microwave oven. The location is good,near to eating places. Walking to Nanjing Road is not very very near though. Subway station was near,about 5minutes walk. Name of the nearest subway station is Dashijie.
