The location is very strategic. Just opposite to the Nanjing road where you can see amazing scenery from the hotel window every night. The meals in the restaurant are also fabulous and features many local delicacies.

The hotel is advertised as a five star hotel. Chinese five star but definitely not on international standards and thats one of the reasons why the hotel gets a "poor" rating. Its an average four star hotel, in my opinion. Let's start with the positives. The location is great, near the Bund and Nanjing Street for shopping. The room we... More

Great location for The Bund, Nanjing Road, Century Square. As in 10-15 minute stroll to The Bund, a couple of minutes to CenturySquare and Nanjing Road shopping. Big, smart, busy hotel. Plenty of international travellers. I'd be very happy to stay here again, and almost certainly will if I'm back in Shanghai, as I have no reason to look elsewhere.... More

Great location and professional service expected from this hotel. Suites are beautifully presented with comfortable beds making this for a great nights sleep. Suits a larger groups very well with easy access to all main attractions.would highly suggest this hotel for any first time visit to Shanghai.

GOOD 1.Location if you like downtown/shopping areas. 2,big rooms/big bath 3.good wifi/staff is helpful. 4.near to main city attractions/best bars/clubs. BAD 1.too many sex workers around hotel at night (typical in that area i guess). 2.breakfast buffet is so so nothing great. 3.hotel might consider refurbishing floor carpets in galley. overall one of the good options in downtown.

I stayed here for a couple of days in Shanghai, nice location pretty convenient but I cant remember anything particularly good or bad. it was all pretty average, a good hotel for business, not for holidays.

Right in the middle of town for all tourist stuff. Great room, Comfortable beds, super view of town. The spa was awesome too, great services, low cost for a hotel. Food was great, bar was good, nice pastries for high tea. Price as great, super service. Would go back again 5 star for 4 star price.

This was the second I had come to Shanghai, and honestly one of my highlights of this trip was this hotel. It was pouring buckets in the morning after our first night sleeping over, and we were worried about not having an umbrella. Luckily, at the front, they had over 20 large umbrellas to be used free of charge. (They... More
