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.

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

Location - Google map as Rayfont Hotel Xuhui. Cross a road you can see Watsons and MCdonald. Also near by big shopping mall ASE Center Plaza. Alot foods choices at shopping mall ground floor. 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
