I can see the great river view in the bed. Good service, Check-In is speedy. We can get delicious food at 2 floor. Also I like the swimming pool at 4th floor very much. It is the best hotel which I have been.

This is a business hotel that is trying to be a really upmarket tourist hotel at the same time. The first thing you need to know about this hotel is that you will need to take a cab to get mostly anywhere from it... and certainly you will need a cab to get to it. It is about 20 minutes... More

Dear Distinguished Guest, Thank you very much for your review of our hotel. The InterContinental Shanghai Expo is located adjacent to Huangpu River and Nanpu Bridge, thus most of our guest rooms can overlook fantastic river view. As you mentioned, there should be many more places to explore around the hotel in 1-2 years. Thanks again for your stay with... More

I stayed here for business for a week in Feb 2015. The hotel is something else - it's quite elegant and well-kept. I was surprised that almost all of the front desk staff, as well as the doormen, were quite young. English is a bit of a struggle for some of them and others are very fluent - luck of... More

Spent one night at this wonderful hotel. Being the last stop of my Hangzhou/Suzhou/Shanghai trip, I am glad I stayed there. The room is superb, ask for a room with the river view. At night the bridge will light up and its beautiful. The bed is very comfy, however, quite small if you ask me. I would use the word... More

Booked here at short notice as I had an urgent business trip. I stay in a lot of IHG group hotels and generally get good service, and this was no exception. I'm fortunate that my budget stretches to the premier rooms, but staying here was a bonus as they upgraded me to a suite. Saying that, this Intercontinental is excellent... More

This is a really nice hotel a little bit away from everything but the cost is less than other intercontinental hotels in shanghai. the only negative bit was the room was hot for the first 2 days as their air conditioning was not working and on the last 2 nights they placed an air cooler which made a real difference....

I like IHG properties and in general am rarely disappointed. comment made by other contributors about the location of the hotel are valid but a 10 min taxi ride (£2.00) gets you into the heart of the city.

The hotel itself is fantastic 1. Got upgraded because of the ambassador status to a corner room with river view. The view is stunning, overlooking the Nanpu bridge. The room has a sense of luxury. Big flat TV with Bose sound system. The bathroom is simply wonderful. The tub is very comfortable. 2. The SPA area is very good. Huge... More
