Mingde Grand is a reasonably good hotel. The room and bathrooms are clean and have all the amenities to have a comfortable stay. Good wi-fi in every room which is free. There is only one big draw back. Pimps offering "girls" sit right inside the lobby at night. It was disgusting to see that!! Its a fairly decent hotel and... More

Mingde Grande is an older hotel, but fairly well maintained. Service was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is two subway stops from People's Square. The trip from the airport to the hotel is easily manageable on the subway.

This is a nice hotel which is very close to the Metro. Stayed there few days earlier before my China tour begins. The Front Desk and the Concierge were very nice and helpful to show us how to get around in Shanghai, the room was very nice but they didn't have the A/C turned on while we were there two... More

The dinning room was empty.The mushroom soup was like dirty water. The staff was not as friendly as in Beijing or Xian and... More

The hotel is not bad. It is a little bit aging, but the cleanliness is acceptable. Although it is a matter of personal preferences, I find the style very old with dark furniture and tacky decoration. I prefer modern hotels. There is no wi-fi in the room. There is only a LAN cable and cost 100 CNY per day. I... More

We stayed in the Mingde (previously the Lexington Plaza) in July 2012. Plusses are that the location is good, it's not that far from the Bund & the taxi fares to the Bund are cheap. But a word of advice, there isnt a huge amount of English spoken in Shanghai so get the name and address of the hotel translated... More

But the heat is still not on in late November and the bathroom was freezing. The breakfast buffet was the worst of all the hotels we have stayed during the trip. I guess their... More
