Easily visible from the bund-- it's the building with the giant globes that light up at night. Inside the globe is the fitness center and gymnasium which is the largest and nicest of any hotel I've stayed at before. The rooms are clean, well decorated and comfortable. Slightly noisy in the morning fr the conventions taking place in the same... More

I love a beautiful hotel room and this hotel totally made me happy. I checked out of a dumpy hotel one block from the Bund (with no window) and for $10 more a night I got a room in this hotel. The room is clean, American sized, king size bed (american-style mattress), fabulous bathroom (2 showers, and 1 tub). big... More

Spent three days there in April for a meeting. It is next to the Convention Center but it is dated. It may be grand hotel in 1980's to 1990's but now with so many nice hotels in Shanghai this hotel has fallen way behind. The breakfast that was included had very few good selections. I ate at the dinner buffet... More

The hotel is convenient with really kind staff. The hotel has a really relaxing view of river and it's beautiful outdoor ground. Rooms are tidy and clean with very kind mates. We had breakfast in a restaurant with pleasant view and various foods that probably without difficulty to find everyone's choice. Coming out, we found a big shopping centre, oriental... More

Travelling with a group of 5 to Shanghai we had to book a room last minute for one night and online this was one of the cheapest. To our surprise the hotel more than exceeded our expectations, beautiful big clean suites and very quick checkin with English speaking receptionists. The hotel is situated on the Bund and we had a...

I was in this hotel for a meeting and to visit Shanghai. They took on my arrival what they said is a "deposit" and ask me to pay the bill at the end. The only problem is that this "deposit" was charged to my bank and they asked me to pay two times (deposit + final bill). I knew that... More

Nice place close to the bund. Very friendly staff. Staff at reception speak good English. Fabulous breakfast. This is NOT one of the budget hotels. Free Wifi. Great views if you manage to get a room facing the river.

I've only made one trip to China and this is the hotel I stayed at, so I really don't have anything to compare it to, but I don't see how you can have a nicer location in Shanghai than this one. It is right next to the Oriental Pearl Tower and right across the river from the Bund area. The... More

We stayed here 6 nights, first impression - luxury. Huge halls, big and beautiful atrium, very polite and helpful staff. Room standard is high - comfortable bed, nice bathroom etc. The most of staff speaks good English and help us whatever we asked about.

The more I visited Shanghai, the more I just like this hotel. This time as it was fully booked I never got a riverside view, but had to be convinced by a garden view. To say the truth, the view makes a difference but nevertheless the rest of the proposed items from the hotel are still very good. Don't miss... More
