The Rayfont is an amazing value in a city with high cost real estate. I stayed in one of the Deluxe Business Suites (really a 1 bed apartment) on the 26th floor for 5 days. The apartment was reasonable although a little dated and worn. It was 900 square feet with a small kitchen, dining area, living room, large bath,... More

Wasn't as bad as all the reviews I saw before travelling however it was still pretty average. Little things hadn't been cleaned correctly. Couldn't see the name of the hotel from street as it had been pulled down, some letters still remained. Room was good size for two with big bags/suitcases. I never dealt with reception however they seemed quite... More

This is the WORSE hotel I have ever stayed at in my entire life. The workers are so unfriendly, rude and are not helpful. They all appear so untidy. They seem to have on the same uniform for weeks. I would not stay in this hotel again even if I got paid to stay here. The only think that is... More

The place in itself is in a good location in the city, but a decent hotel is a different thing. Staff pretty much impersonal and cold, if not rude. My room was clean, but the bathroom sink was clogged from day one to the final day and I left water on purpose to let them know it needed a settled:... More

Words can not describe how disgusting this hotel was. Checked out within a couple of hours, reception staff sleeping on their desks. Stains on every surface including bed sheets. Hairs in the bed, balls of hair in the shower. Wallpaper and curtains hanging down. Room corridors filthy and dark. The staff were not interested at all. I was with a... More

We left this hotel within 2 hours of arriving. The beds were dirty, tiles missing off the bathroom floor, stains down the wallpaper and flying things coming out of the fridge. The staff didn't seam to be interested in our complaints. I understand that we arrived in the middle of the night but I can not recommend this hotel.

The apartment hotel is clean, and extremely pleasant. All facilities of a high class hotel, but unbelievably inexpensive for a hotel in downtown Shanghai. Used regularly for business and social visits to Shanghai.

Agooda said it was 4 star ???This hotel is 1 star do not stay in this hoteler Unfortunately a real lack of maintenance and an indifferent staff made me more and more disappointed with the hotel as my time there went by. In my room, the wood veneer was splintering off the closet doors; tiles were missing in the bathroom... More

This hotel has a good location-price ratio. It is very near to most major streets, sights and office buildings. The apartment I've been living in for 5 weeks already is spacious, has all the basic amenities and, above all, is in good condition. Whatever problem arises can be sorted by dialling operator (press "0") - just remember to speak simple,... More
