I agree with pretty much all that was in the last review, but my experience was the location was just fine. The subway is right around the corner so you can get to the Bund in 20 minutes. All the amenities are what you would expect in a 5 star hotel, it is very comfortable and service was very good.... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Swissotel Grand Shanghai for a few nights in mid-September for a business trip. The location of the hotel for my purposes couldn't be beat (3-5 minute walk to Park Place, an office building with various companies' offices).

Very nice suite with sitting room. Excellent service. Enjoyed the hotel and its location. The executive floor offered very nice refreshments and snacks in the afternoon. Breakfast was good too.

I loved everything about this hotel, including high tea, the breakfast and the dinners each night weren't bad either. My room had a fabulous view, was modern and everything worked. I loved the small but efficient closets. My only complaint is why a 5 star hotel must charge for internet access when lots of less expensive hotels offer it for... More

In a few words, the rooms smell of something weird but can give you a headache. We changed three rooms already but still the same smell. Poor room arrangement as the room is ideal for single occupancy only given that there is no privacy in the bathrooms. Poor pressure in the water and not hot water. The mattress is like... More
