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

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
