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

Pros: comfortable, useful business cards for taxi drivers with address on, good location, amenities nearby, running track across road Cons: gym pokey, pool in building 2 dirty, due to many conference guests in hotel you might find yourself waiting up to...

If you have experienced hotels in China that are not international brand such as SPG or Marriott, you know how they can be really great, or really not. This rayfont (only a few blocks from another) is the better of the two. It is closer to the French Concession, quieter, with nicer rooms, and fixtures that are not broken. I... More

When I arrived to Shanghai I thought I have booked a nice hotel, given most of the hotels in the city are quite good. The hotel is in the middle of a very very poor neiborhood, even its not dangerous, its quite dirty. The Hotel is quite dirty and breakfast is perhaps one of the most unhealthy things I have... More

The room is normal Chinese style hotel rooms with no Wi-FI. Other things just basically near standard. The location is good enough to get around with Metro stations nearby. Most of the furniture is run down but not that bad. Price is reasonable.

This was my second long stay at the Rayfont in 4 months. I always stay in the deluxe business suites which are really large one bedroom apartments. While I loved it the previous time in July, this visit was not so good. The first apartment they gave me (1727) was very rundown with badly sagging couch, stained carpet, very dirty... More

We stayed here only one night so we didnt have a chance to explore the bustling streets below. However, one night was pretty enough. The room were normal but there is no free Wi-fi. They offer a lot of Chinese and international channels which seems good to me. Me and two other family members stayed in this room but the... More

I spent two nights in this hotel and the room was clean and quite big. Didn't had the occasion to use services. The room had a balcony and a lovely view on the city. Only one negative point: the elevators (once we had to wait 15min to be able to go down !)

Very Dirty (hairs on the floor, dirty spots on the carpet, on the sofa blood spots) Very rude personnel I asked 7 times the bellboy to help me with luggage, and at the end the receptionist came to scream at me that i did not check-out, because my luggage was upstairs in the room. Slow elevators; One waits around 10... More
