If you are looking for a special hotel in Shangai, not too big but with efficient service and staff, in a beautiful position close to People Square, Marvel Hotel is the right place for you. In the lobby, located at the the first floor, you can find the right atmosphere for a holiday. Wide rooms, wi-fi, special breakfast (wide choice... More

We just stayed here for 6 days and were pleasently surprised. We got a nice spacy room with a view of several nice buildings including Jin Mao and Shanghai Financial Center. To the other side we could se Peoples Park. The metro is just around the corner and a bus stop more or less right outside the door. You can... More

Have returned from a 5 day trip to Shanghai staying at this hotel. It is difficult to think that this hotel can be neaten for value for money. Rooms are clean and well appointed, the reception staff are helpful (although their English isn't great, neither is my Chinese), the location is excellent for sightseeing and shopping, the hotel design is...

The hotel was chosen by my China-based colleagues for a business event and I was a little sceptical as I already had a favourite hotel in Shanghai. However, Marvel is now my new favourite! It is the former YMCA Shanghai and it has been very sympathetically renovated, and still contains much reference to its interesting past - something you don't... More

First off, let me say that the hotel's location is great. Literally around the corner from Exit 1, when you get off Metro line 8 at Dashijie. (Line 8 is just one transfer from either airport). The room was clean with all the toiletries (combs, toothbrushes, vanity kits, shampoos, conditioners, etc.) that you would expect at this class of Chinese... More

I was definitely drawn in by the 'old-China' exterior and it was a lovely, comfortable hotel with nice rooms. However, a few negatives of note were: 1) Internet connection is bad, sometimes the wifi would just refuse to work which can be infuriating. 2) don't share a room with someone who you are not in a relationship with because the...

We spent 2 nights here in March 2014 - our first 2 nights of 14 in China having booked the Hotel ourselves on Hotel.com. The location is great for accessing the Metro system - virtually next to Dashijie subway station. The entrance is a bit odd - reception is on the first floor (But there is a lift from ground... More

Its the hotel beside the MRT Dashijie subway station (line 8 blue) that really attracted us to booked in that hotel, just about 50 meters over the corner, it is also know as the YMCA of Shanghai. There's a lot of restaurant at the back street with varieties of food being served. Only draw back was its lobby and reception... More

Located right across the vast green area of People's Square, Concert hall and Yanzhong Square Park, which resembles the Central Park atmosphere in NYC. The hotel building is historic and quite attractive, retaining the classic western-chinese mixture look. The room was clean, but the shower booth floor had stains all over, which I was already aware by reading other Tripadvisor... More
