Good location, nice hotel but service can be improved

Plus points for this hotel is the location. It's located just outside the pedestrian street of East Nanjing Road. Taking the metro to the hotel is easy, but getting out of the metro and finding your way to the hotel could be a little tricky. The hotel could do with better instructions on its website as to which exit to get out and then turn left or right etc. The check-in was painful. I am not sure if the booking details were not properly transmitted from this site to the hotel etc...but the check in counter took a long time to find our bookings. We booked 2 rooms. In the end, only 1 room was ready for us and we were supposed to come back to get the key for the 2nd room and this was already way past the check in time stated. We went out for a late lunch and got back to the hotel at 4ish and this time round, we had to face another round of confusion from the 2nd lady at the check-in desk. In fact, we found her a little rude. If only she had allowed us to explained further, but all she did was ask us for our name and promptly went to check on the computer. She couldn't find our booking details in the system. And as I happened to remember the previous lady who checked us into the 1st room and we saw her at the other desk, we told the 2nd lady to check with her instead. The booking was eventually sorted as we were apparently checked-in but needed a key by the previous staff...BUT not before we overheard the 2nd lady complaining in mandarin to the 1st lady that we didn't tell her anything. WELL, if only she had taken the time to listen to us? Other than this, everything else is good with the hotel and I would still recommend it to friends due to its location, but just don't expect excellent service from the staff.

Manque d'amabilité du personnel

Hôtel très bien mais un personnel à la réception, concierge et particulièrement au restaurant de très mauvaise qualité. Du personnel vraiment pas aimable hormis les chef de rang en salle. Un problème de management global.

Bon rapport qualité/prix

Hotel bien situe entre la Place du Peuple (5min) et le (10min à pied) sur une rue commercante et pietonne, non loin du metro. Facile d'acces depuis l'aeroport en Maglev et/ou metro. Le concierge est tres efficace.

hôtel irréprochable , le luxe !.....

cet hôtel est sans conteste le plus bel hôtel où nous avons résidé. Le luxe à l'état pur....Nous avons été heureux d'avoir une hôtesse française à notre arrivée qui nous a parfaitement conseillés: remise de carte de la ville #très utile!# et plein de petits conseils utiles. La chambre était magnifique et pourtant nous sommes assez difficiles sur ce point. Nous avions même droit à l'ouverture du lit avant le coucher ! Les oreillers étaient particulièrement doux # chose rare dans les hôtels#.
