The hotel is situated in Nanjing Road where all the action is. Step outside right on to Nanjing Road and you are surrounded by shops and restaurants. It's within easy walking distance to Peoples Park or the Bund so the location is excellent. The hotel itself is lovely and modern and the staff are very polite and happy to assist.... More

The location is excellent right in the middle, easy to walk around. For early check in there was a higher fee, which included the breakfast in the lounge. This breakfast was excellent. Beds also great. Especially the bathroom needs improvement, door of shower almost fell down, hair dryer was a mess, took forever to get your hair dry. Clean at... More

We had to find a hotel on very short notice as our ship arrived late into Shanghai and as a result we missed our flights. We found this on tripadvisor, and what a great hotel. Nice spacious and clean rooms. Very helpful and friendly English speaking staff The hotel is in a VERY good location

Have stayed at this hotel several times now. Its location is a big plus as just a short walk to The Bund. The famous Nanjing Road Pedestrian area runs on one side of the hotel and the subway station is very close. The street level entrances are not welcoming, but once you move up a floor to the lobby and... More

I spend two nights here. Hardly you will be able to get a hotel with such good location with a great mix of luxury and good service for a reasonable price. I did not interact too much with personnel, only for check in and check out, but both times were kind and efficient. You will not get disappointed about this... More

Located at Nanjing road east, Sofitel Hyland gives you a convenient touristic area, walking distance to The Bund, people square, ancient town, Yu Garden, etc. I highly recomment rooms of Sofitel club, upper floors, more confortable and more benefits. Don't miss copy market at Shanghai scien museum station (Line 1)
