Driving by I noticed the Magnificent Hotel and suggested to my fellow travellers that a hotel with a name like that certainly wouldn't be. When we did a u-turn and stopped outside, I knew we were in for an experience! As this was the last night in China, and having experienced quality accommodation it was a little disappointing.

Unfortunately, not a good experience. The hotel and my room smelled absolutely awfully of old smoking and dirt. The bed was hard as a rock. The carpet was dirty. The internet did not work in the room and was close to non-working in the lobby. The staffs were rude, impolite and unprofessional, they ignore you – and it is almost... More

Most important point: Great value for the area. Any time complaints might pop into your head, just remind yourself of the price you are paying. You could stay in a posh hotel a ten minute walk from here and spend literally seven or eight times the price. So, with the bargain pricing in mind, here are some comments... Rooms are... More

They suggested we leave it for the night....ahhhhh and sleep where?? The did finally put us in a room with a double bed and one twin. To say the... More

I have stayed at the Magnificent International Hotel in Shanghai twice now and have booked in for my next trip to Shanghai as well. So as not to give people the wrong impression of my rating, this is a good hotel for the price you pay. In all honesty, it's quite basic, but it ticks the boxes on 'cheap', 'proximity... More

The last time I visited this hotel was in early 2009 and found it perfectly acceptable. Back then, the rooms were clean and everything just seemed OK. Not great, but okay. Price wise, it was good back then and given its location, which is 10 mins walk from Xintiandi, was perfect for my objectives. Fast forward to 2013. I visited... More

The rooms are clean and all the sheets and towels are changed every day. The rooms are decent/normal sized. Beds are hard. The rooms are run down though. They're just old and havent been updated. The staff is unfriendly and speak limited english. The internet is dreadfully slow and doesn't work most of the time. but, for the price, this... More

If you plan to stay in this hotel, kindly advise to print out the hotel address in Chinese, it help the taxi driver to located this hotel as Xizang South Road is very long. If you take the metro, Laoximen Station is the closest. Reception: The staff is poor in... More

I think this hotel serves a good purpose. I wouldn't give it 4 stars normally but I think that it's really well priced for an excellent location right next to Laoximen station (line 8 and 10) and old town (fish and bird markets). We paid about $45 AUD per night with two adults which was pretty cheap for shanghai and... More

Was ok about 8 years ago, not anymore. Staff does not speak very good English, even if your translator speaks to them in Chinese they pretend to act stupid. Breakfast typical Chinese, coffee drinkable. Hotel has become dingy.
