New Harbour Service Apartments
Reviewed 21 April 2012

We stayed for 2 nights. Check in took a while but understandable since we were a group of 20. We booked 3 BR apartments and they were big and the furnishing was good. There are English channels on cable TV and that was a plus. Very close to eating places and groceries etc... The cab was not too familiar with the place so we were a bit delayed but got there eventually. Front desk can speak English well enough, not too friendly but willing to answere questions. We would stay again I suppose given the price was pretty reasonable when we booked and has lots of eateries close by :)

Really great hotel with attentive service, right near all the action - you can walk everywhere. We were a couple with my mother and the 2-bedroom serviced apartment was a great choice.

Stayed here twice. At the end of March 2012 and then again again second week in April 2012 as we found the location, facilities and value for money unbeatable. We traveled for business purpuses (and a bit pleasure) as 2 adults and 2 children (11 & 13) and found the 2 bedroom apartment fantastic.

The apartment had a small kitchenette which did not have any cooking utensils or cutlery. Just a Microwave and hot water boiler. This was absolutely sufficient for us as we only used it for tea and coffee. Not much point in cooking yourself if you can go out for dinner and feed the family for about USD15.-.

Free broadband cable connection in the rooms and free WIFI in the reception area and breakfast buffet room. 2 TV's, but we found only 3 English channels out of the 50 or so. But who cares. Great heated swimming pool which we have been looking for to use every single day but we have been so busy every day that at the time we came home to the hotel it was at closing time (9.30pm)

Breakfast room was a stunner, with huge tables and massive chairs, more like a lounge. Choice of food was more on the western side and for RMB88.- per person/day (about USD14.-) it was the most expensive we paid in China but we could not complain because it was convenient.

Location was great, subway about 2 min walk away and all taxi rides are cheap as chips. Most staff spoke some English with the reception having three staff which could understand pretty much everything.

If you need a china SIM card, there is a big China Mobile office in the next building which provides you with a Chinese mobile number within 15min. No passport or credit card was required.
WARNING - Don't buy SIM cards at the Airport as you don't know when they expire. We bought two SIM cards in the China Mobile shop to stay in contact in case we got lost and for 3 weeks I didn't even use RMB50.- and I used mine extensively for business.

First time we stayed on the 5th floor and the second time on the 15th and both times it was very quite and we had no problems with noise.

When we visit Shanghai again, we will certainly try to book a room at this hotel.

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.
