My partner and myself chose this hotel due to previous recommendations and its lovely photographs. The hotel itself is in a reasonable location and the room we had was very nice. Unfortunately a few things let this trip down.
1) balcony. I paid extra for a balcony room thinking it would be lovely to sit and look at the scenery however we were unable to access it as the door was locked at a four inch gap. I understand safety is paramount but why advertise a balcony if we can't have one?!
2) peacocks. The hotel advertised wandering peacocks but we never saw them - we looked specifically several times.
3) being fined for a nosebleed. I had a nosebleed while sat on the bed one evening and got some (a drop) of blood on the sheet. We were charged 330RMB (£33)for the privilege.
4) location. There are construction works going on, on one side of the hotel. Its not too noisy but it does disturb that sense of this place being a "retreat" , and views from the room overlook this lovely construction site. Taxi drivers can find this place really difficult to find and the subway is a 15-20 minute walk away.

Top marks are to be given to the strategic location of this hotel, which is right in the middle of the East Nanjing Road. As such, it is very convenient to walk through the pedestrain street to the MRT station, People's Square and the Bund area. We were lucky to be given a room at the top floor, which appeared to be newly refurbished. Although the room is a bit small, but it is clean and comfortable.

In shanghai for work and this hotel was very well located, close to the metro and main shopping areas. Internet connection was great. All in all a solid hotel for biz travelers. But the room condition was a bit weary, maybe because of the traffic the hotel handles.
"Great hotel in non city area with local atmosphere"
We were very comfortable in this hotel, specifically chosen as it was not in traditional tourist location. Breakfast is very basic but adequate to our needs, having a refrigerator & electric kettle in room along with supermarkets close by meant we could have extra supplies of favoured items. Variety of local restaurants and great bakery along with other local shops easy to walk to.Tours were organised through Expedia and pick up at this hotel was not a problem.
Hotel provided vehicle and driver to Pudong Airport on last day at cost of RMB250 well worth this cost, great trip also.

I stayed in this hotel during my trip to Shanghai for its annual marathon event. The hotel is located near the race expo as well as the finishing line so it would be easy for me after the race.
The receptionist and the porter were very efficient, quickly checking my booking details and issuing me my room key card. The porter was very quick to help me with my luggage to my room.
The porter showed me how to open the room using the key card and went on to show me all the light switches and checked that they are all working.
The room was very well equipped. LG LCD TV with HBO and some local channels. Within the room they provide an table lamp at the writing desk, a travel power adaptor, alarm clock, sewing kit, pens, notepad, slippers, iron with ironing board, electric kettle, complimentary distilled water in bottles, shoe shine kit, ash tray (???), good quality paper bags. In the toilet, they provide razor, toothbrush with toothpaste, comb, handwash soap, shower gel in dispenser, hand towel, face towel and bath towel. There is also a hair dryer built in.
The toilet seat has a Panasonic bidet built in and works without flaw. The bath tub is fitted with a tap and a shower, There is also an removable anti-slip mat provided for the bathtub and a floor mat to dry your feet after your shower.
There are restaurants nearby which are opened during the regular hours. If you need to get a bite in the odd hours, you have to take a short walk to the nearby stadium.
