Editorial review:

The location here is nothing special and there is no real atmosphere to speak of, but it's cheap and well-managed here. This makes it popular with business travelers. The standard rooms have nice beds, but the rooms themselves are a bit small. There is broadband and wireless internet access available in the lobby. If you want to relax a bit, there's an indoor swimming pool. Dining options include Cantonese and Japanese restaurants. You can get discounts of up to 10%.

                    - Compared to other hotels of same quality, this one was a bit expensive.

                    Facilities, club lounge and friendly staff - all good.

                    Restaurants like all big hotels was a bit over priced.

                    I have stayed there many times over the last 10 years and feel very at home and comfortable. It is a high quality hotel with high standards of service and very helpful, attentive and profesional staff. I also feel very comfortable in the lounge bar having a drink by myself in the evening. I look forward to visiting again very soon.

                    Very good staff. Caring and understanding. Extremely efficient yet with a human personal touch. For example the chef gave me a selection of small cakes totally free as I ate his Nasi Goreng. Just very friendly. And very helpful on reception and the concierge showed me everything about my appts locations. Excellent value and 10 star service.

                    The smoking areas. I dislike smoking but I understand it's part of Chinese culture.

                    This hotel was in an ideal location for us near metro, shopping and a couple of nice bars. The main reason I am writing a review is because of an incident that happened while we were staying there. One evening during our stay I was robbed while walking near the hotel. We had to inform the police so we spoke to the hotel duty manager, Laura as we needed to know where the nearest police station was. Anyway to cut a long story short. Laura was more than helpful, accompaning us to the police station twice (as we had to make an appointment to report the crime) both of these processes were lenghty and she sat patiently and interpreted for us. She was extremely sympathetic friendly, helpful and nice to us and we greatly appreciated her help. Because of Laura's professionalism I am giving the hotel a good review.

                    W have give this hotel a five star rating for staff because of the excellent service and help we got from its Duty Manager Laura. Regrettably we cannot say we got the same good service from the concierges. We have travelled extensively, (I am a retired marine engineer) and never in my life have we come across concierges in any hotel with such little knowledge of the city they work in.

                    Location and cleanliness

                    The noise coming from the highway, the spotted carpet in the room, the water of the pool which was a little too cold, the buffet of breakfast that don't have fresh fruit juice, yagourt was not very good, had no pancakes or waffles and had to wait for cleaned cups and fresh fruit.

                    Location, free access to the internet from the Sauna/Pool open until 2am!

                    the cleaners often come to the room at 11am in the morning sometimes without knocking at the door!

                    Location was great - I chose this because my office is an overpass away. But this is also a good location for visiting the Jing'an Temple, 2 mrt stops from the shopping street of Nanjing Lu as well as People's Park. The staff were pretty efficient too! Check in and check out was like 2-3 mins? Overall, worth the money, great location, and nice room!

                    The breakfast - happy there was an egg counter. The cold cuts seemed as if its been sitting there for a while already, the Chinese dishes were way too oily (they use lard in some of the dishes!?!). Also when my husband asked for coffee, the lady waitress gave him the coffee that's not freshly brewed and we saw there was a machine there!!! Don't count on the breakfast at all.

                    Good location. Breakfast was included, even for the children.

                    Staff at check in desk was very unfriendly and overcharged us for the extrra bed. They did not give us the Booked.net rate because we did not state this in advance....
