Value for money
Located nearby metro station, complimentary internet
My second stay in this hotel. As always, the room was clean and comfortable but a little too dark to my liking. Located within a few minutes walk from Yuyuan metro station (Line 10) - it's very convenient for those relying on the metro to get around. Complimentary wired and wifi internet available in the room, but I find the connection this time was slower and unstable as compared to my previous experience in this hotel (last year). Buffet breakfast was too oily.

Charming & oozing character
Clean and charming appearance, helpful staff, great breakfast buffet
After experiencing a Fawlty Towers stay in our previous hotel, arriving at Narada was akin to ice cream on a scorching hot summers day. Welcomed with a cool drink at reception, booked in with minimum fuss. Advised that the bar fridge was all complimentary. I was already liking the place.
The rooms were not large, but very clean and oozing character. The beds were extremely comfortable.
Then came breakfast. Wow. A spread worthy of a 5 star hotel with indoor or outdoor settings with a great view.
A short walk to yuan gardens metro station gave easy access to the sights we wanted to see. Some were even within walking distance. As our 5th hotel on this years trek it was by far the best. We checked out and left our luggage there to visit the Shanghai museum. Upon return, staff noticed we looked a bit hot so a couple of cold waters were bought to us whilst our bags were fetched. Then, the manager kindly wrote in Chinese the address of our next hotel for the cab driver as we only had an English version.
All in all it was a memorable few days. It will cost me however. Of all the hotels on this years trip it was the only one my partner picked. Lol. So I've had to go 5 star to top it. Enjoy YOUR stay, you won't regret it !!

Excellent stay at this hotel!
Very friendly and helpful staff
Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
Rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable and was very happy with the amenities provided.
Hotel staff were always friendly, polite and helpful on whatever we asked.
Hotel location was quite good, only a 20min or so walk to the Bund, 10min to the metro and close to restaurants etc. One can also walk to the French concession or Nanjing Rd in about 30min or take a taxi which is quite cheap.
Overall a very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to others.
Just one thing though. Be wary of young couples standing near the metro station closest to the hotel or on other streets who ask you in English to take a photo for them then proceed to ask questions in order to try and take you somewhere. They are scam artists!

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect! I love this hotel. The most important thing about this hotel is the friendly and very helpful staff. Another thing is the free mini-bar in the rooms. I love it. I had a great stay with my family.

Afforadable upscale hotel, well located
Executive City View room, quiet area and hotel design
Really worth the price!
We stayed in the Executive City View room in a corner (so bathroom had 2 windows looking towards the bund - partial view though). Very clean and spacious with a small living room area and a desk.
I think hotel was refurnished recently and design is very nice (modern, wood materials...) even if the outside of the hotel still needs to be repainted.
All rooms have a complimentary mini bar and coffee machine (better taste than at breakfast). Breakfast is average: it has Chinese and some continental food, but worth it.
2 metro stations located nearby the hotel, walking distance the Yuyuan Bazaar, Yuyuan garden (5min) and to the Bund (15min).
Friendly staff. Some speaking English (usually during the day) and some don't (at night mostly) as in all China.
Would definitely recommend it and will come back again.
