I am in an electric wheelchair and they were great with me. Breakfast buffet was fabulous, room service arrived within 30 minutes as promised and was delicious. It is 2 blocks from the hop on/off bus and around the corner from the famous shopping street. You can walk to the Bund if you want a good walk, but it easier to take a taxi.

Overrated. Now the property is old. Location is good. Travel tours dump their tourists to this hotel!! A sign the hotel is no longer 4 star caliber... let alone 5 stars. Chinese b*tches that work the front desk have bad attitude

My room radiator wasn’t really warm, but my parents’ room was alright. No complaints about other things. Location was great, just a walk away from Nanjing East station and the shopping belt.
