Had the worst time in this hotel
I urge you guys not to check in the hotel. They kept the central AC off throughout our stay. Even after complaining to the manager they did not turn the AC on. We got to stay in such heated rooms. Pathetic service

Value for money, old hotel but mantained well
The location, the staff, the cleaniness
The stay was good. Hotel was old but well maintained. The room is old but the staff did a good job by keeping it clean. Shopping mall nearby. Value for money! Just that the wifi is cranky

Totally disappointed
It was awful place to stay. I had been travel a lot for business travel and this is the worst experience ever. The shower didn't work and the staff so unfriendly. Please go somewhere else. I was so embarrassed to stay with colleague.

Rainbow - I only see Zippy, George and Bungle
Iternet connection, clean, use of umbrella
Thw location of the hotel was described by the staff as close to the subway, but this is way off the mark taking around 30 minutes to walk there on a busy dual carriageway. This could well be the reason for the discount price - Shanghai has so many new subway lines that it would be hard for a hotel not to be positioned near one. Upon entry, the staff at check in were arrogant and unresponsive to questions. It seemed ridiculous to them that we should ask where the lifts were. The room was pretty good but no real view other than roads and wastegound we were told that breakfast would be 185 yuan a pop even for our 7 year old. The swimming pool was nice enough apart from the other swimmer who was constantly spitting in the pool and talking loudly to the grinning teenager playing the part of lifeguard. It was only after the swimmer got out and relieved the grinner of his duty that we realised he was an employee too. The wireless connection was spot on and rooms were quiet. Wouldn't opt for it again though (should it still be around)

Nice Location!
Nice Location, Clean and Quiet
The hotel is well located at the Hong Qiao area, close to the exhibition centre, however, not much dining places or activities near by, a total business hotel with sufficient facilities and comfort to let you rest after a day's work.. A rather aged hotel but still well kept with a convenience hotel and Bank of China next to it..
