Nice Hotel in a Great Location but with a Weird Policy Oct 23, 2010
This hotel is in a great location, right across it is the harbor for taking cruise boats on Huangpu River. The street behind it directly goes to the main road to Yu Yuan Garden and Cheng Huang Temple, the two famous attractions in Shanghai.

I booked the hotel at 680 Yuan/day for 4 days at www.ctrip.com, total is about 2780Yuan. When I checked in, I was told to put down 4000Yuan deposit first before I get the room key. It was a real surprise since it means that I needed to give 4000 Yuan to the hotel before I even get the key to get in. This was the most ridiculous policy I have ever heard of. I have traveled to so many places and stayed at so many hotels but this was the first time when I was asked to pay much more than I am entitled before I get the room key. I ended up using my credit card and freeze 3500 yuan on the card until I check out, which is a fair game.

The room we have is very clean on the 12th floor with a beautiful river view. The bath and shower are very comfortable, it is like a 4-star hotel. We like the food cooked in the hotel, very authentic Chinese dish at reasonable cost and the food we ordered is delivered to our room within 30 minutes by a very nice and polite staff.
