First of all it has a good location for sightseeing. We spent only one night there during our short stay in Shanghai. Room is clean and large but furniture and equipment is rather old. I had no problem with comunication with stuff. The breakfast was interesting :) there were more chinese food then continental. Hotel is close to the metro,... More

The bed sheets hadn't been changed, simply remade, disgusting. The bed was like laying on a board - hardest bed i've ever laid in ever in my life. The toilet didn't work. Requested more pillows, they brought up an iron. That was funny.

Stayed in this hotel for the second time after one year. Went to Shanghai again on a holiday to have some fun in this amazing city. The place combines good location with quite cheap price for Shanghai standards. It is 5 minutes walking from the nearest subway station. Also it is within walking distance of Nanjing Lu (~10-15min). The rooms... More

The location is excellent and the staff were very helpful when services were needed. The check in experience was average at best - not very friendly. The hotel has a decent entrance and the breakfast was very good but the rooms need some remodeling/updating especially the bathroom. Also, wireless internet availability only available in the lobby. Rooms only have hard-wired... More

This hotel refuses to hold anything at the front desk for guests for guests friends to pick up gifts one-two hours later. Even refuses to call a messenger service to pick up gifts from guests to their in town guests. Completely horrible service. Worst hotel anyone could possibly stay at.

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. The room... More

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
