They have installed routers or boosters in the individual rooms. - two complimentary water bottles are left in the rooms each day. - the rooms seem to have been... More

Stayed here in 2006. Remembering drinking Chinese beer in restaurant next to hotel with snake on sign for cheap beer (hotel beer pricey.) noisy. Wierd how they had a see through wall into bathroom. Found out later that snake sign restaurant specialized in exotic animals.

Spent one night in Nov 2014. A few notes: 1. Not too well managed. Could not locate doorman/bell captain when arrived and had to take my big luggage out myself. 2. Front desk staffs were willing to help but their English were not so good. Be patient. 3. Room is fairly small for a 4-star hotel in Shangahi. 4. No... More

The rooms were hot and the aircondiioning didn't work , Wifi cost about $12 Australian per day although the staff told some of our group that it was per hour. There... More

At first (and second) glance the (oddly named) Rendezvous Merry Hotel Shanghai is a decent Chinese urban 4-star hotel. I've been traveling to China for 25 years, and have stayed in many 5-star hotels, as well as a number of others, all the way down to "zero star ]" (fine, actually). [I'm talking about Beijing and Shanghai. Zero star in... More

I stayed in this hotel for three nights at the end of a China round trip, so I can't say anything about the price as it was pre-booked. As soon as we entered the lobby we noticed a damp smell. The building seemed to be wet. Unfortunately this smell was even worse in the room. The bathroom ceiling was completely... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during a recent trip to China. Good quality hotel with a really comfortable bed (many hotels in China have really hard beds compared to western hotels). Nice bathroom with good rainfall shower head. My only concerns were that the shower was scaldingly hot at times and it was difficult to regulate the temperature. Also the... More

Stayed for 3 nights. good service and so was the breakfast buffet. The only draw back was the air conditioning in the room was not working well, same case with my other buddies who were in the other rooms.
