“Good Value in a Great Locaiton”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

I wrapped up my tour, and wanted to extend my trip, so this apartment/hotel was perfect. Great location, clean apartment with a small kitchen, but you can't really cook anything (nothing but cups, bowls & chop sticks), has microwave with refrigerator/freezer and honor bar. Bathroom is spacious with wall mounted hair dryer. The water tends to go from hot to cold in the shower. The restaurant downstairs had a huge selection for breakfast for about $12 US, but it closes at 10:00 a.m. When leaving by cab, be sure to take a business card from the front desk, because the hotel is not always easy to find. When going to the airport they do have a shuttle service for about $42 per person, but if you take a cab it comes to about $14 and there will be stop and go traffic. The only negative is the staff is not always easy to communicate with in English, so it can get extremely frustrating. I stayed in the one bedroom unit, and there is no TV in the bedroom. Other than that, I would highly recommend this property, and would definitely stay there again. The price is great for what you get, and they also have 2 and 3 bedroom units, so it's great for family.

Room Tip: It's always nice to pick a room on a higher floor, mine was on the 11th, but I believe that if y...

if you look for some other style of hotel, this one is a very good choice. it is situatend 10-15 min walk from busy peoples square or xiantandi in a shanghai residential and business quarter. plenty of small shops and restaurants around. the staff is very friendly, clean, the appartments are well equiped with a own kitchen, living room and bedroom. family ambiente. nice restaurant. a real alternative to the international hotel chaines in Shanghai

The Harbour Service Apartment is in a block between Yongshou, East Jingling, Guanxi and Ninghai roads.It is just a couple of blocks from Dashijie Metro, 5 minutes to People's Square, 10 minutes to the mayhem of East Nanjing Road, and 15 minutes walk to the Bund.
New Harbour is a 28 story building, I a one bedroom executive apartment No 2603, with small kitchen (utensils for either Western-style or Chinese cooking have to be rented extra for a small charge), large dining/living area, small office space and double bedroom. All very spacious and with great views from all windows over People’s Square and westward along the elevated (East and Middle) Yan’an Road toward Jing’an and the French Concession.Also great view of the Marriott on Tomorrow Square.
Around the hotel there are still many of the traditional low-rise buildings, with little shops, street vendors and narrow lanes criss-crossing these blocks. The view from number 2603 may not last forever - developers are always on the look-out for more space, but for now it's great.
There is a restaurant on the second floor, serving Chinese and Western-style breakfast and (mainly) Chinese cuisine for dinner. On the same floor is a small gym, a pool and sauna. The business Centre provides PCs and printers. Internet connection in my room was fast and reliable (unfortunately WiFi in my room didn't work but a cable was provided and there was no extra charge).
Off the ground-floor lobby there is a small and friendly bar (ASKA Bar), which is open to about 2am (and serves cold beer - not always the norm in Shanghai)

This calls itself a serviced apartment - but basically it is a hotel room that comprises a sitting room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and something that is supposed to be a kitchen. Our bedrooms were nice but comprised two double beds and a single (as advertised) when surely most guests would rather have had a double bed and three singles...

The kitchen was the disappointment - it had no cooking equipment rendering it all but useless. It did have a fridge - handy for beer and yoghurt - a couple of bowls and a couple of plates. There was also free hot water for tea and cold bottled water in a bubbler. The room had internet access but only with a cable - no wifi - which was useless for our Ioads and Ipods. The only wifi was in the hotel lobby.

The rooms were large and the views were great. The sitting room was large and comfortable but the dining table only had four chairs - for a room that was supposed to sleep five.

The hotel offered very expensive, very ordinary breakfast. There was also a swimming pool which was reasonable but didn't have any water shallow enough for a non-swimming child. On the positive side, though, the staff did find a rubber ring for him to use.

The location is fab - quiet enough but within easy walk of excellent restaurants, ATM machines, supermarkets, a metro station and the bus station. It is also walkable to the gardens and The Bund. I would happily go back.

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.
