No rooftop, poor breakfast
Maybe our expectation was too high. Went with a friend and we both found the room design and amenities good. Also bottles of free water, orange juice and coke in the refridgerator was unsual and it was nice. Had relaxing night in a tub filled with hot water. High ceiling and overall experience in the room wasn't bad. But the shower was see through! The dark glass partition of both toilet and shower was uncomfortable because you can see inside clearly. I like going to a boutique hotel and I have been to multiple of them all over the world- the quality of breakfast was one of the worst I had. Very little selection and nothing much to eat. Wanted to have some hot plate but an egg fry was the only option besides lukewarm bacon, pancake which I didnt touch. My friend also felt the same. It gets loud during weekend due to many ppl eating at the bar and restaurant, but I had a quiet night to sleep because everything closes pretty early... There was no rooftop available due to construction and it was one of our plans, so we were little upset.

first time in shanghai
good hospitality, nice breakfast, great design
In the beginning they mistaken our reservation and we had no room. They tried their best to search for another hotels to book and finally they found a room available in their hotel which was facing the river bund and upgraded from our original reservation. All in all it was a good stay, love their theme of design, good breakfast at the restaurant, will definitely come back to stay again.
