Editorial review:

Numerous staff members here have badges that identify them as members of the CCP's Young Pioneer organization, but if you can look past that fact, this hotel is rather pleasant. The rooms are a bit small, but they're contemporary and relaxing and have broadband internet access. There are incredible views over the French Concession and you can go swimming in the indoor swimming pool. Dining choices include Chinese and Thai restaurants. If you feel so inclined, you can hang out in the karaoke rooms. There are discounts of up to 30% that you can get.

Verified Reviews:

  • Convenient to most of downtown - Bathroom was small - Internet not included
  • Close to the old french concession area - Plenty of english channels - Will be going back
  • Nice sauna spa - Swimming pool - Fitness room - Clean tourist class hotel
  • Location is ideal - Safe area at night - Bed was a little low - Fantastic breakfast
  • Simple business hotel - Service is good - English speaking personal - Affordable price

                      We stayed in a quiet non-smoking room. The rich breakfast buffet offered a good variety.

                      Unfortunately, the staff at the reception was not very motivated in responding to additional requests and appeared a bit disorganized.

                      Good location and value for money. Old nice buildings with small streets and small shops cloase around. Also big shopping street Huahei road next door

                      Great location. Breakfast okay.

                      Rooms need to be renovated. Pool was not included for superior rooms (very annoying, since this was one of the main reason for booking...) Windows badly isolated, i.e. noisy and can be cold in winter. Put us in a twin bed room, despite I was asking for double bed room at the booking.

                      Really found this hotel to be perfect for our needs. It was so central to everything. The staff were great, I read reviews before about unfriendliness, not the case for us, we were always greeted by happy friendly staff. The breakfast was also good, we did not get it in our package, but wished we did in the end as it would have been cheaper. We were a couple with some other friends in town for the formula one grand prix. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone. The bar and restaurant (steak house) on the 5th floor were good fun and the food was great too. The rate we got for this hotel was really great too.

                      The pool was closed for renovation. A pity the 15% service charge is not included in the whole overall hotel rate.

                      Hotel is located quite centrally and Subway not far away. Surrounded by lots of Restaurants and small Shops in former french quarter. Room not spacious, but bathroom looked new

                      Room quite small. We expected more variaty at breakfast and waiters wäre not really interested in cleaning the tables After leaving of guests.

                      Location is very good.

                      Staff is rude and has very poor English. Gym and pool are currently under construction, which we did not know about before arriving.

                      From a subway station about 10 minutes on walking, very sympathetic personnel.

                      Nice room, good bed and bathroom. Convenient location in center of the city.

                      Breakfast was a bit poor, windows in room can not open and hardly any taxi drivers know this hotel (or the street) by name, so it is difficult to return to the hotel if you are a bit lost somewhere in the city.

                      Not close to Metro. Have to wait for over 10 mins so as to get hot water for shower.

                      very close to the city centre, cheap to get anywhere by taxi and even subway close to the hotel, shopping street just behind the hotel, awesome steak house inside the hotel

                      a bit older furniture and equipment in the room, for the price I was expecting something newer, but the cleanliness and service is good
