Only had one night still didn't get to enjoy the spa or large outdoor pool but my room was great. V comfortable with high quality bathroom.
V close to the airport so great for meetings in that area
Interesting art in the lobby too!
Location is fit for travelers intended to relax and enjoy the comforts of this beautifully designed boutique hotel. Nestled within a gated neighborhood, it held a quiet charm, barricading the noise of the busy city.
By distance, it is far from Shanghai downtown and Pudong (main international) airport but minutes from the Hongqiao. For access, take either a taxi or the subway but expect a long subway ride.
Atmosphere was comforting, a bit run down but appreciated their art and decor. Definitely not your typical mainland 5 star hotel.
Hint: Staff avoid keeping charge of valuables and it is not safe (as stated inside room) to store valuables inside room safes (as in general in Mainland China).
If you are looking for a simple evening after a busy week the rooms in this hotel are to a high standard... at a good price. The hotel is small with only 90 rooms and follows an Asia theme throughout. It's located in a developing area so there are no walk to restaurants near by. The hotel food is Chinese with several western items available. There is a hotel Sutton bus to the airport but not that regular. It's 15-20 minutes from the airport and worth a look for a night.
Pros: If you can score this hotel for under $150 with or without breakfast included it's a good deal because the rooms are solid and the breakfast is good quality with decent selection/choices.
The rooms are large and well designed. Suitable for a couple or a family of 4.
Cons: If you wan't to use the internet to access anything "cool" from outside of China this isn't the hotel for you. My VPN was blocked and pretty much everything didn't work + it was super slow.
The location is isolated near car repair area so if your going to stay here stop a local market or convenience store before or shortly after you check in as they only provide two small bottles of water for free in the room.
If you don't like a firm bed than please choose an American branded hotel. I didn't mind and there was a bath tub in the bathroom to soak yourself.
They do have a fitness center but its a complete joke, its like a closet with a couple cardio pieces that I have never heard of so if you need this please choose another hotel.
Pool is closed.
Once again the breakfast is worth the extra price I highly recommend it!
Relaxed, wooden floor and good smell. Charlie Parker and bebop as sorround. Elegant decoration. Not fake, Real care on art and balance. Good restaurant & bar (reasonable prices) and red Yamaha piano in lobby. Relaxed pool views while drink something. Only for a nigth in business trip but I will remember and repeat. Only one bad thing: very dirty windows glasses in the room.
