In Shanghai, I stayed at the Windsor Evergreen Hotel. The rooms were rather small—mine especially, because I was sharing with two others. There was only two feet of space between the end of the beds and the other furniture. Between each bed, we had about six inches. The place where we really had room was in the bathroom. We had a nice, large tub that was perfect for when we decided to do all our laundry together one night.
A buffet breakfast was included with the room. Each morning, there was fresh fruit, vegetables, hot breakfast items, and toast. You could also have your eggs prepared any way you wanted, provided you could communicate it to the chef. Most of us ended up with scrambled eggs.
During our stay, we had a few problems with the hotel. On the first night, we had to wait for over 3 hours to get the third bed delivered to our room. They had accidentally delivered it to another room that was part of our group. In the middle of our stay, we came back to find that on one of our floors, the hallway outside the rooms was being remodeled. The carpet and wallpaper had all been removed during the day.
Prices are around US$45 per night.
