The budget double rooms are pretty basic, dark and small, but desent, clean enough and my bed had a great matress, which is SO rare in China. Windows to the hall or the stairs. Nice lobby. In the heart of Old Shanghai, which is great if you want to experience the real deal. Staff are OK, the girl seemed annoyed but the guy is nice and really trying to help. English spoken. Internet connection is a pain in the ass as it requires CAPCHA, passport and room number and doesn't work on all devices.
