Not very comfortable
Traditional building, Warm light, Nice bathroom
We shifted our hotel to Villas since I was informed the previous one cannot be used as normal. Villas has a good location with a traditional building style. But the facility was very old with no wifi. Some lights cannot be used and also it is very cold with air condition not working. We also changed the network cable after it was found not helpful. So in all we are not very satisfied, except the good location.

Our stay at the Villas 1931 hotel was awful. After checking in two of our party had to move rooms because there was no running water. When we tried to have a baby cot sent up to our room, which we had requested in advance, we were told that there was no cot in the hotel. We were then forced to move rooms due to the severe mould growing on the ceiling of our room. We moved rooms and then went out to enjoy Shanghai. when were returned around 9 o'clock we found a number of cards pushed under our door offering ‘special' massages. Over the next few hours we received several more cards offering more obvious and graphic services.As we tried to get to sleep we were then continually disturbed by the sounds of other guests enjoying the services offered. We were not expecting much for the price that we paid. However nothing in the reviews suggested that this place was not for families, or couples, or even anyone except if you are looking for a dirty hotel.

Location, comfort, hotel decor
This hotel was very well decorated which gave it a homey feel. The room was comfortable, the staff was friendly, and it was very conveniently located for the price comparative to other hotels in the area.

enjoy vacation in Shanghai
good location, clean, nearby local restaurants
The hotel is located very near Shopping area and subway (Nanjing East station). And there are many delicious local restaurants and convenient stores around hotel. But, it was quite difficult to communicate to hotel staffs since they could speak some English.

Dirty place with incompetent and unfriendly staff.
The room was dirty and smelly. Cockroaches run around at will, even crawling on guests during sleep. The staff was unprofessional and unfriendly. When I showed up there with a confirmation printout, they could not find my reservation. Finally some guy wearing a dirty t-shirt showed up and told the staff to give me the room. I did not notice any other guests there during my stay. It is over-prized for what you get. Do not expect anybody to smile at you. Horrible experience!

Walking distance to The bund, Yuyan Gardens and Nanjing Road
I was extremely disappointed by the room quality. It was very poor, a little smelly, and old with many things broken......falsely advertised as it looked nothing like the photos. The bed was hard. When I complained to the front desk the best they could do is get someone out to fix the shower. I have stayed in many hotels in Shanghai and the only thing good about this one is location
