Jessica C. Solo travelers United States of America, November 29, 2012
great location, dark room

Location, breakfast buffet, complimentary toothbrush/toothpaste, quiet
I booked this place because of the location and because it has a gym. The location is fantastic. The gym is okay but has weird hours. It's only open from 7-9 a.m. and then again in the evening from like 5:30-8.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: the sightseeing tunnel is super tacky, but kind of a fun way to get across the river to the pudong area if you're up for spending $8.

Great location.

Friendly staff, good location and nearby shopping area.
All are within satisfactory. I enjoyed my stay there. Will definitely select this hotel again. No wifi in room.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Do visit Dong Tai Road. It's an antique street. Only within 5 mins taxi ride.

Chew J. Couples Singapore, November 19, 2012
Great location good condition rooms

Good location and sufficient facility and room services provided
the location is very central in inner shanghai. it is also surrounded by all sorts of shops, restaurants and hawking stalls selling all sorts of things and services. the famous nanging road, people's park and the bund are all within walking distances. travelling to and from the hotel is also very convenient as it is just about 3 minutes walk to the nearest metro interchange station from which one can travel to practically all practical locations of shanghai ( both puxi and pudong ), including to & from the airport. the only not-so-good experience i had was the slow internet and wifi system.
Restaurant Tip: Try to walk through the near-by back lanes and other smaller streets other than the main Nanging Road to discover the real Shanghai and other Chineses' provinces's food at cheap prices.

Chew J. Couples Singapore, November 17, 2012
Good location and good condition room.

Good price for the type of room condition and facilities.
The location and condition of the hotel is good value for the price paid. It is near to almost everythings such as Metro station, areas of attraction such as Nanjing Road and the Bund. Surrounding areas are full of restaurants, road side stalls and shopping of various descriptions and standards. Room services also prompt and responsive. The problem is for couple staying with only one breakfast coupon does not look matching and practical.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Public transport is cheap and a RMB 18 whole day Metro ticket or RMB 45 3-day Metro ticket will bring you to almost all inner Shanghai. You can also see a lot of Shanghai by just on foot to the nearby serrounding areas.

Perfect Location
Very bad Receiptionist. Unhelpful and unfriendly front desk staff. Good Housekeeping staff and happy to go around as everything you want can find there.

There is fruits stall at behind this hotel and a short walk distance you can get KFC , Pizza Hut and others restaurant. 5 mins walk to Cinema and Coffee Bean and Haagendas Ice Cream.

Great Location
The Charms Hotel is an affordable hotel that is located near the Nanjing Roads.. Just cross the street and you'll see the the very busy street.. the second floor offers one of the best peking duck i've tried.. maybe for my taste but i've been all over the world and we ate there like 3 meals of pecking duck.. just be warn about the people offering girls at the door of the hotel at night.. if those things doesn't bother you then its a great place to stay.. close to subway..
Restaurant Tip: charms hotel restaurant has one of the best pecking duck.. be sure to try it..

Nice & reasonable rates hotel

near to Bund & Nanjing road
The check in was a little long as we have check in and check out people at same line. It took 30 minutes to complete everything. The room is ok as we only came back after doing our walk until the Bund and surrounding areas. There are many restaurants near the hotel and were quite cozy.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Long stretch of muslim restaurant 150 meters behind hotel.

pros: location & price, cons: cleanliness & staff

good location, lower price
It's quite central and close to trains and shopping areas. The price is much cheaper compared to surrounding hotels The place smells heavily of smoke Their customers are mostly locals The rooms don't feel clean enough The staff were very rude when we asked to change some money/update our booking In short, stay here if your priority is saving money
