Mayfair is a decent 4.5 stars hotel. The room is a little bit small but clean and tidy. It is close to Metro station with good accessibility. The staffs are friendly. Great variety of choices for the buffet breakfast, even Hong Kong style instant noodle! It is a comfortable hotel.

I visited the city for business with colleagues and based on the feedback of our other colleagues who had visited Shanghai & stayed in Hotel Mayfair, we were not let down one bit. Perfect ambience, wonderful rooms, very prompt service, good connect through the city as it is conveniently located near metro railway station. Staff is very courteous. Everything so... More

Stayed three nights at the Mayfair. Very comfortable bed, pleasant quiet room, nice bathroom. Robe, slippers, supplied. Electric kettle, drinks, minibar. Breakfast buffet was superb. We had room service which was fast and very good. Staff friendly. Lots of shops nearby and places to eat out. Near underground station for getting around, but taxis are cheap too. Did not notice...

The hotel is easily accessible from the metro (Zhongshan Park, lines 2,3,4) - Exit #5 from the station. It is about a five minute walk to the actual station which can be done via an underground passageway. Line 2 runs to Long Yong Rd where the Maglev runs to Pudong. So for RMB44, it is possible to get from Pudong... More

We stayed here for three nights during a tour of China (our second tour of China). The hotel was an excellent standard, with good food and excellent accommodation. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel but we did enjoy the excellent and wide-ranging breakfast. There are many eating places nearby so it is no problem finding somewhere nice to eat.... More

First of all, tap water smells bad... but is this because of the hotel ? or.. is this the problem of this city ? The tap water in Beijing doesn`t smell that bad.... Room is fine, except the fact that they charge internet at RMB 120 per day. Someone was saying the internet was slow. Yes, it is slow as... More

On a recent trip to Shanghai, I booked a reservation that I thought was the New World Mayflower Hotel in Shanghai. However, upon check-in I was told that my room was in the "Annex" building. The annex building turned out on to be a different hotel, the Penta Hotel. The rooms at the Penta Hotel were NOTHING of what I... More

This is a great hotel for the price and is, in my opinion, in a better location than many of the more expensive hotels. the room was well presented, clean and modern. The lobby was really nice. Check in was quite slow and don't expect the staff to be too overtly friendly, but they were professional. The bar is very... More

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighborhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
