Excellent Hotel in Shanghai! Aug 10, 2011
I stayed in this excellent hotel in August of 2011 for 7 nights.
### Location ###
The hotel is located in the Huangpu Destrict, not far from the Yu Garden and City God Temple. Also the famous Bund and People's Square are reachable by foot (but takes a while). The next Metro Station is called "Yuyuan Garden" and is approx. 7 minutes away. From there its just 2 stops to People's Square and only one to East Nanjing Road.
The surrounding area has lots of Banks, huge Appartment Buildings and some stores. The most interesting area might be around City God Temple and the "historic" destrict. Just go out of the hotel and make a U-Turn on the left, then walk straight ahead, you cant miss it. First of all its very impressive with all the old buildings (although they are not that old for real) and down there are many stores, souvenir-shops and food everywhere. From there you'll also find the entrance to the Yu Garden, which is beautiful.
Besides the metro there are also busses and taxis going, but getting the right bus without chinese-skills is impossible. Taxi would be an alternative to the metro but using metro is so easy and cheap - I would recommend that anyway! From the Airport I would recommend to take a taxi. Alternatively you can take the Maglev-Train to Longyang Rd. and transfer 3 times to Yuyuan Garden Station. I took the Maglev to Longyang and from there took a taxi to the hotel. So it was comfortable and exciting because of the magnetic train, in germany called Transrapid. It costs 4€ and the taxi another 2,50€, very cheap.
### Room ###
It was the best room I ever experienced in a 4 Star hotel. It was clean and the design was modern, I felt very comfortable there. My room was at the 5th floor but actually it seemed pretty high, so I had a very cool view on the Skyscrapers around People's Square, such as the Radisson Blu "UFO" ;-) The bathroom was all black and looked classy. It had a big glass-wall where you could look into the rest of the room and even outside. It had a bathtub and shower!
I had free internet access (cable on room, WiFi in the lobby) and the safe was even big enough to put a lens and my netbook in it. It also had 2 bottles of free water in the room every day and a big flatscreen.
Only negative was the bed. It was huge and the price included 2 persons in that room but it was just too hard. Not so comfortable, sometimes even my pelvis hurt on the next day after aleeping on the side :(
### Service ###
Its very hard communicating in China, even in the mid-class hotels. The women at the frontdesk where very friendly but english was rarely spoken, even though it was a 4-Star hotel. Good thing was, that they were able to change money from Euro to RMB there. I think a more expensive hotel provides also better english skills :)
### Restaurant ###
Ohh man I was surprised of the restaurant, never seen such a great restaurant in a hotel. I went there with my shorts and T-Shirt and therefor looked like an idiot when I entered it. I thought it's just a hotel restaurant where I get a little dinner but it was amazing and classy. Everyone was best-dressed with suites and evening dresses. They had 14 aquariums where you could pick you fish from - more than fresh :) If you decided not to kill a fish you could also choose from a big variety of other meals and it wasnt cheap at all. Altogether I payed 3,50€ for a Tsingtao 0,5L Beer, beef, vegatables and rice. Also the breakfast there was rich of things! Only the seats were rather few for this amout of rooms this hotel has. 2 times I didnt get a free table after 8:30am so ate outside, cause didnt want to wait.
### Cost ###
Not only their restaurant was cheap, also the rooms itself were. I payed approx. 340€ for 7 nights. For this kind of hotel you would pay at least twice as much in europe.

pleasant time at Shanghai Mar 21, 2011
The hotel is close to the People Square (30 min walk) as well as the Yu Garden (15 min walk). However, the area is not one of the prettiest in Shanghai (I prefer the French Concession are).
Our room was large and the design has been great!
Clean room, nice bath, good service.
A Chinese breakfast can be expected.
