                    The superb location, well trained and english speaking staff and very efficient room service.

                    Considering that in China and particularly in Sanghai you get the best of the Hotels for abbout 100 USD , J C Mandrin at 200 USD+ is certainly not a value for money propsition at this moment of time. Nothing extraordinary to justify 100% premium over othr good hotels.

                    Hotel was good but is located in West Nanjing road where all the large malls are, those who want to be in the middle of the shopping road must go to East Nanjing road.

                    The hotel is slightly old but is still a good hotel

                    The only thing is the Location.

                    They did not change the bedsheeting during all my stay. They do not clean properly, they only organize a little bit, but bathroom and floor and carpet are really dirty.THe lobby smells of chinese food, the staff is asleep, and unpollite, the rooms are old, the breadfast is very bad quality.

                    Only reason I booked this hotel was due to the location as it was close to my exhibition center.

                    However, the price of the hotel, the service, the cleanliness and the quality of the hotel was very bad.The Hotel is extremely old, old shower curtains for the shower which is anti-hygenic, plastic cover in the bath tub same any-hygenic, and was dirty, toilet dirty, furniture old, bathroom old. Not at a Mandarin hotel like I would have expected in another country. Very unfortunate and disappointing experience for the price of a normal luxury. I will not come back. Also I have asked one main double bed and i had 2 little beds.
