The purpose of this trip to Shanghai is to bring our 5 month old to see some friends who live in Putuo. Naturally, I try to look for a hotel that is near them and because of the baby's needs, I prefer spaciousness over luxury. Based on the high ranking on Tripadsvisor and the half price promotion of club level... More

Hadn't ever been to Shanghai before so wasn't sure of what location to stay in. The hotel isn't right in the centre but only a 20 minute / £4 taxi to The Bund etc. The service in this hotel is great, Chinese taxi drivers don't speak any English so the reception were very helpful in translating & helping us get...

I love this hotel. I've stayed there many times during my work trips to Shanghai. The rooms are spacious, clean and I love the movable bathroom walls. Service is perfect and breakfast is awesome. The gym is good.

I found out that this hotel is just 2 subway stop from my office and decided to try, especially with the attractive room rate. It's technically a 5-star hotel but Renaissance is a brand that is positioned among the mid tier of Marriot group, in others words “budget luxury”. Arrival As usual, I booked a car limo, was greeted by... More

I like the hotel and it should be 4 stars if not higher. The staff is friendly. But I had dinner at the Chinese restaurant and it charged 50 RMB for a local beer plus !! 7 RMB service charge for it. I really think this is a rip off and therefore I only give 2 stars. The food was... More

This hotel is very elegant and at the same time charming. The rooms are spacious and warm, all the hotel looks very new and fells modern. Breakfast is very couplet and filled with continental goodies and interesting choices for Chinese food also. I specially enjoyed the fresh salmon, fresh fruit and the nice detail of lots of varieties of yogurts.... More

Stayed for 2 weeks on business, this hotel was one of the nicest experiences I have had. Clean, modern and comfortable rooms with everything I need. Iron and board, umbrella, desk with built in power with multi international plug ports, decent English TV channels, even a breathing mask to escape smoke, nice touch. The WiFi was outstanding, my phone's WiFi... More

I was many times in Modena hotel, just in front of the Renaissance. But over there the internet is really poor and the breakfast is not so good. Si I decided to change. Renaissance provide a decent wifi and definitely a good breakfast. The room was nice, even if a little anonimous, lack of personality in the design. Anyway both... More

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights in early April, 2014. It was wonderful!! Breakfast was outstanding, the room was immaculate and the customer service was out of this world! They also mailed post cards home for us, got us a taxi we could trust, and in general was very helpful with anything we needed. My wife attended a... More
