Stayed for about 4 days. Great hotel. But please note that the hotel name is now Metropolo and not Marvel as mentioned. Superb location for tourists. Metro is just around the corner, Line 8 and the location is well connected by bus services too. There are some nice restaurants nearby too. I had my business meetings during the day, and... More

We love the location : around the corner from the metro and a big shopping area, as well as being right in front of the People's square and the Concert Hall. It was our third hotel on that tour and it was the softest, most comfortable bed with a wonderful welcoming room. I hope it's our choice for every visit.

Thank you for your business and choosing the latest MetroPolo hotel, a Classiq since it is housed in the historic YMCA building. Superb location and softer beds than the norm. Thank you and we look forward to welcome you and your friends back again. More

This hotel is perfectly placed onle 50 metres from a Metro station and 5 minutes walk from People's Square. The rooms are clean and well equipped with free wifi and all the usual room features. The lobby is elegant and quiet. The staff were efficient if not helpful and friendly.

My 3rd time in this hotel. Great location and interior. This stay however, the room has an absolutely terrible sewage smell. Opening the window only made it worse. Huge let down! Also the internet is quite spotty. If the smell is removed tomorrow, would be back in a heartbeat!

Oh dear me, I hate that sewer smell, so often found around our buildings here in China. Obviously there was a reason and obviously we have now fixed it, so that you can again return to this hotel as you have before with location and interiors. It is my understanding the spotty internet has now been much improved with an... More

Thank you for your business you have a huge choice in Shanghai. Marvel does have a superb location for transportation, restaurants and area attractions.

When I booked this hotel from the UK using a booking website, I thought I'd found a gem. A historic building with seemingly beautiful decor in a central convenient location and all at a great price.

Great location. Clean room. On the small side but comfortable. The carpeting in the hallways needs to be replaced. But the carpet and flooring in the room was good. Front desk is a little slow moving but they get the job done.
