    Good

    It was easy to book and close to everything I wanted to do in Shanghai

    At checkin my booking had not gone through to them and they wanted to charge me more for the room My room I got ended up to be very small and in bad need of a bad revamp.I would stay again and recomed to others as it is very handy to many places in Shanghai

    The cleaner came to clean the room even though there was a do not disturb sign on the door. The internet page did not have a log out button, so I was only able to use it on one laptop. Room was smaller and darker than the images shown on the website. It would be preferred to offer wifi within the room. Location was confusing as Donghu occupied 3 different locations within the area. It was not clear where the facilties were and if there were any.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location in the heart of Puxi. Nb the Donghu Hotel is 1 minute walking up the road, most taxi drivers drop you at the hotel. There are no breakfast facilities at the Guest House but you can use the hotel or there is a great coffee shop (Wagas) with free wifi next door. Within easy walking to South Shaanxi metro or Changshu metro.

    Superb

    the room was cool & silent. the hotel had beautiful spanish gardens you could relax in with a few listed buildings. opposite was a fantastic spa & next door el willys, one of the best restaurants in shanghai with a great courtyard away from the madness. with a fresh juice bar for the mornings underneath & the monkey lounge for late nights hidden there amongst the various tappanaki & sushi joints, you really dont need to move.. & frankly, when its 34 degrees & you'e negotiating your way around 30 million chinese people, some days you just simply dont want to move..

    if you put a do not disturb sign on the door they ring you up & disturb you to see if you want your room cleaned. so stupid.. saying that, they do the same at the shangri la... & all over the world. house keeping are a global nuisance.

    Very good

    The location is excellent however the room is very small and the bathroom is tiny. I am only a five-footer and already find the bathroom very tight. Because of the location, I would stay there again though.

    Taking deposite is not fair from cc. They can ask some cash money for deposite.

    the location is good, near everything in the french concession.

    The aircondicion is not useful at all, since its dont work as it should. The free internet with cable, is also not working, its too bad a connection and I didnt manage to get online. Its really a problem... Then rather charge some money for those who wants to use the internet so that you atleast can get online if nessesary.

    Fabulous

    Adequate comfort. Best of all, location.

    Barren lobby. Plenty of room for lobby seating, but there were only a sofa and chair or two in one corner.

    Superb

    Location location location....centrally located with tons of restuarants nearbye. Easy to get cabs, easy to walk from here to many parts of Shanghai as well. Stayed here with a friend in a double this time, and have stayed in a single. Bathroom in the double was alot bigger than the one in the single. Room on the 7th floor had a nice view of a large garden out the side we were on.

    Was a bit worried by the fact that they give you earplugs in the room, but even though there was disco of some kind nearbye, neither the music nor the everpresent fireworks bothered us.

    Exceptional

    Clean, quiet and comfortable room with cable internet. Approx 300m from the underground station South Shanxi Rd in the heart of the French Concession.

    Fabulous

    Very polite and helpful staff, comfortable room with good bed (very firm mattress), clean bathroom, a great range of restaurants and cafe' nearby, very close to the tube, and ideal location in the French concession.

    The room was a bit smally at start. I think they cleaned the carpet but was not properly dried. The Internet connection had a few problems at the beginning but they fixed it immediately

    Fabulous

    hotel was fine for our needs. It was well located with good restaurants opposite. we were only there for 2 nights and did not do any sight seeing so I dont know how it would be for that. Room was clean and Icomfortable and answered for all our needs

    It was a bit confusing that there is another Donghu Hotel across the street at no 70 where this hotel is number 7 as the driver who came to pick us up waited for 2 hours at the wrong hotel and they didnt even call our hotel to see if maybe we are there.

    Good

    Excellent central location, easy to get to on the Shanghai Metro. Tons of restaurants nearby.

    Bathroom is TINY, and the shower floors are very slippery. Asked for a rubber mat but never got one.

    Location is good- near to Huai Hai Lu where there are many interesting shops and cafes around the vicinity. The food at the French Cafe right beside the hotel is nice (but quite expensive)

    Very old Guest House. The red carpet in the room was extremely old and dusty, made me feel reallly uncomfortable and had to walk around in the slippers provided. The pillow of the bed is also very uncomfortable. The bathroom was really small and cramped, and flush of the toilet bowl did not work very well. Would not recommend this hotel. At this price, I am sure one can find a hotel in Shanghai that is more pleasant to stay in.

    Superb

    Great location in French Concession with good access to cafes, restaurants, metro stations and some of Shanghai's sights. We stayed in the Guest House building which was great value for money. Not luxurious but perfectly clean and well appointed in an older building with character. Able to use the gorgeous old style swimming pool in the next door building. Superb way to relax.
