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.

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

MUST visit unqiue shopping street Tianzifang which less then 15 mins walking distance from hotel. Thank you our driver to recommend the great places for us.... More

The Rayfont Downtown certainly provides an inexpensive place to stay at a great location in downtown Shanghai. And I also thought my room (#2312) was handsomely designed and appointed. 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... More

Very impressed with its big revolving door. Normally, I see revolving doors can accommodate 1 person per section but, in this hotel, the section is so big it can accommodate as many as 5 people. Meet several European guest in this hotel but not many Asians. Room is reasonable size, enough walking space, furnished with a writing table and chair.... More

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 25th floor for 5 days starting June 5th for about $63 a night through Expedia. Much better than a hotel room at the Hilton or Marriott at a fraction of... More

First of all, there was no Wi-Fi anywhere in the Hotel. If you need Wi-Fi, try the cafe beside the hotel. Next... (1) In my Room, the sink was clogged. Bummer and had to use the toilet bowl to brush my teeth. (2) There is only 1 key card, so careful about getting locked out. 100 Yuan fine for getting... More

The hotel is older but clean with all the essentials. We got a room for $54 a night on booking.com which is incredible! You pay when you get there. No deposit. Walking distance to the trendy tianzifang area. Short cab ride to explore the glamorous yet expensive Xintiandi. Would definitely stay there again!

We are a family of 5 and sometimes struggle to get enough space. We got a large 3 bedroom apartment with its own kitchen. The kitchen came completely empty except for a fridge and cooker. We had to rent everything to go in it! The rooms were nice, although the bed was the hardest, most uncomfortable I have ever slept... More
