It is next to the subway line 2, and very convenient if you need to head to either airport in Shanghai. It is therefore good for business travelers who need to get through the traffic when rushing to the airports. The hotel has a modern look. They have done a decent look in fixing up an old building. The room... More

I have reviewed some hotels in Shanghai before flying to my Motherland and decided on Pentahotel. The location was near the train station, shopping complexes, restaurants, parks and price was within my budget i.e. around USD80 mark. I liked... More

The bed was big and comfy and the room was clean and neat. The restaurant/bar looked interesting, but, the only night we had to... More
