Home Away From Home

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 30, 2004

Golden Trans-Ocean is located in an office building, where the 18th to 24th floors have been converted into service apartments.

The hotel is very conveniented located, being just one street away from Nanjing Lu. It's also very easy to get from the hotel to other major areas, e.g. Huaihai Lu, Xizang Lu, the Bund etc.

My family and I stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment. The apartment is simply but comfortably furnished, and you feel just like you've moved into a home away from home.

The living room comes with a good-sized tv, with another tv in the master bedroom. There is a separate dining area, together with a kitchen if you would like to do some cooking while you're there.

The bedrooms themselves are reasonable in size, not large, yet not so small that you feel cramped.

The apartment came with only one bathroom, nicely appointed, with basic amenities that you might need.

I find this place extremely suitable if you are travelling with your family or friends. Service apartments give you the convenience of having everyone in the same premises, yet retain individual privacy with separate bedrooms. It works out a lot cheaper too, as compared to getting multiple rooms at a hotel.

Do note that you are not expected to spend much time in the hotel, so dining facilities and other recreational facilities (e.g. pool, gym) are virtually non-existent. But there's plenty to do in Shanghai, so you should not miss these overly.

Unique Quality: Though the apartment building is centrally located, it may still take some effort for taxi drivers to find the building, as it is somewhat nondescript.

The immediate surroundings seem to be full of electrical shops, selling industrial spare parts. But there's a street lined with restaurants just one block away, and if you take the subway/hail a taxi, you will have no problems getting anywhere.

It's also easy to book, and you can easily do so through the website, www.travelchinaguide.com. A 2-room apartment for the 3 of us only cost us RMB 608 per night, that works out to be just USD 85!
