I was booked in this hotel by my company when i was visiting shanghai for two weeks in November last year. The hotel itself was decent. Grand lobby and helpful staff. They have a little trouble understanding english but i have had worse experiences in China. The room was decent. Quite spacious for a standard room. The breakfast was great!... More

We stayed for two days while we explored the area. the subway is literally next door, which was so convenient. The rooms are spacious and clean. There was free wi-fi and your typical freebies of shampoo, toothbrush, condoms and razor. A lady came by our door daily in the early evening offering free fruit. We didnt stay long enough to...

Company had booked this hotel for our two weeks in Shanghai. The hotel is extremely far from the Pudong airport, which i believe could be said for most of the hotels in Shanghai. The experience was bad partly due to ongoing construction on the street in front. The construction would go on till late at night. It was also not... More

+the hotel amenities are nice and well-kept. +there is one boy from concierge, who is very good. +subway station nearby. however, receptionists are very rude, and i was double charged for the same room. When I had spent arguing with them for 1 hour, they reconsidered and returned back my money. Instead of apologizing, the front office manager was arrogant.... More

Stayed here twice within the span of 2 weeks. The only issue I faced to start with was its distance from Airport (Pudong). Its really very far and if you are taking taxi during day time then expect not less then 200 RMB and 250 RMB at night. Although with 3 interchanges you can get to the Metro Station Guilin... More

I had a week's work in the Caohejing hi tech park. This hotel is well placed for that being very close to the subway and only one stop from the park. However the hotel Is starting to look a little tired, but is clean and well managed. I found it to be reasonably priced. The breakfast was very good, but... More

I stayed here twice recently, a month ago and yesterday. I am a business man, and this hotel definitly dont have the regular 4* facilities. No rooms service 24 hours. And this is very bad for travellers checking in late in the evening. Breakfast room is open only until 9.30am. So if are not an ealry morning person, you will... More

This Hotel is a typical Chinese style Hotel. Large rooms, fully equiped, free Wlan, mainly Chinese guests. Room is acceptable clean, breakfast good. Location also not too bad - not too far from Hongqiao Airport, not too far from City center. Subwat Station is just around the corner, therfore all places in Shanghai conveniently to reach.

Great Hotel. The rooms are very nice and functional. Some nice amenities with the room including complimentary snacks and fruit. Free WIFI available in the rooms (you have to ask for a router though) and the breakfast buffet was extraordinary! Would definitely stay there again. The only caveat is that the hotel is far from the downtown area but a... More

I should really keep this hotel a a secret, but they offer excellent rooms, nice service at a good price. The location may not be the best, but there is everything within walking distance. Staff is very friendly and rooms are nice and clean.

Staying in Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang

Neighborhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
