been there a few times. Rooms are small. Always trouble when trying to settle the bill with Visa card. On the other hand, nice location in Changning district and great snacks and well prepared beef in the lobby bar/lounge/restaurant. In the meantime I have moved to other hotels.

I stayed here at Penta on my last trip to Shanghai. The room was good but a bit too small. The price was reasonable though. The main positive was the location as the hotel is just next to Zhongshan Park metro station. It was thus convenient to travel to People's Park where most of the shopping areas are located. Being...

Stayed 15 nights here. Hotel is well located, 10 walking minutes to the subway, 2 shopping malls with plenty of dinner options, some shops in the road, pharmacy in the corner, etc. Staff is friendly, room and bathroom are good, clean. Breakfast is good with both American and Chinese options, but pricy. Lobby is integrated in the bar so that... More

Room is comfortable and cleaning, and bathroom facilities with modern design is pleasing. The Hotel location look like near the metro station but still quite a walking distance. Service all depend on staff quality.

I have already stayed at Penta at my last business trip and I came back. I like the modern lobby and the easy-style atmosphere. Great for the young generation! Maybe not the first choice for high-end business VIPs or grandparents...

Good location. Nice price. Room is clean and simple. Subway entrance is only 3 min away. The neighborhood is safe in the daytime but not as good after dark. I was approached by a stranger "offering" me massage session right outside the hotel around 10pm. Having said that, Pentahotel is A very good choice for business traveller!

Stayed in penta hotel shanghai with my friends when we were paying a visit in Shanghai this March. The price was reasonable and even a bargain for two fresh grad girls like us. Although we hadn't spent too much time in the room, it was still good to have a spacious room more than expected. The location was so good... More
