My entire MBA cohort stayed here during a business trip to Shanghai. As I have worked in travel and hospitality, I was very curious to see how hotels in China would compare to those in say Singapore or Bangkok. The check-in was quite swift and we were soon in our rooms. The room itself was very comfortable and well-furnished. There... More

As a part of 14 nights trip in China, we stayed 3 nights in Crowne Plaza Shanghai. Staff of the hotel was friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great. A lot of places to eat around, couple of supermarkets and shopping area. The hotel is clean and good looking, rooms are comfortable.

I stayed there for 4 nights in the, as I got the information, new renovated rooms in the Tower II. The room was very big and clean, the bath itself was nice too and the room had a big bathtube with space for 4 people. I did not use this because this is in my opinion definately wasting water. TV...

We were in the magical city of Shanghai for five days, the HQ Hotel for the Shanghai Intl Film Festival! Warm welcome, lovely and large rooms, superb breakfast, luncheon and dinner buffets with both Chinese and Euro style meals. A surprisingly good wine list with some good reasonable offerings from France! A fine lobby bar, and an even better club... More

It was a very nice stay. rooms were small. faculty was extra clean. Staff was pleasant and everyone knows good English. Our only issues were too soft beds. It was not to the standard of IHG. But, when you are tired, do not see the quality of beds. Rest all was okay.

Clean, kind, fresh, sensitive service, etc.. And very close from metro, you can go to anywhere easily. I heard almost Chinese can't speak english so I studied Chinese language but that's not a big deal in here. I want to come again here!

I stay every year for 9 nights at this hotel on business since 2008 and so I can look back year after year on the continued weaknesses of this hotel and have become convinced that the management are unable to change the behaviour of the staff.

I have stayed at scores of wonderful hotels in up and down China. However, the hotel I consider my favorite and where I call home in Shanghai is the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Pan Yu road.

I attended a conference at this hotel. My room was clean, well appointed, and very comfortable. The restaurant was average, offering a very large selection but nothing particularly tasty. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood which pales in comparison to the more exciting downtown Shanghai area. Charlie's bar in the hotel offered a nice jazz trio, but the... More

Staying in Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang

Neighborhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
