Liked: Close to Nanjing Road, affordable accommodation. Room had effective air conditioner.

Disliked: Private bathroom reeks of sewage. Hallways pong of smoke. Ashtrays are provided and replaced daily in spite of "no smoking policy". Rooms get extremely hot. No lift. Little English. No facilities. Room next to a road which was constantly noisy during the night.

Liked: The shower was spacious and the shower head was powerful.

Disliked: The staff were less than welcoming. They claimed not to have any evidence of our booking. They did not acknowledge knowing hostelbookers.com and shuffled us between 2 locations, both Shijia inn. They claimed one was for foreigners and one was for locals. I was truly disgusted most by the staff's behavior.

Liked: The Inn was fine. The room was big and safe. The beds were pretty comfortable. There were some boys on a lads' holiday down the corridor, but we didn't hear them too much. But you could hear the next room quite easily. We were supplied with fresh towels and soaps etc. every day. They were all clean and so was the room. I would stay here again and recommend others to do so too.

Disliked: The staff weren't very friendly nor were they very helpful. The Inn was not easily signposted on the outside of the building.

Liked: Good place, very close to Nanjing Road market area and the shopping place. Close to station for good and cheap transport to other parts of Beijing. WIll definitely stay in the same place again when I go there.

Disliked: The staff can speak basic English but sometimes they don't understand what is being asked. But I guess that is a problem in all such hotels... Other than that nothing.

Liked: Due to the fantastic location of this property, the hotel really is value for money.

Disliked: The room was not great (a little dirty) but you don't come to Shanghai to sit in the room! For the price, it was as expected.

Liked: The location

Disliked: The cleaning staff scream as the talk to each other and so early in the morning! If this could be controlled to a whisper the place would be far better! Staff at reception could hardly speak English which you put up with as the place is very good value for money, just the noise is out of control!
