We stayed one night here and found the staff were only too willing to help. The bed was a little hard for us, so they very happily put a softer mattress on for us. The Dinning Room where we ate had everything to suit even the fussiest of eaters.

We stayed at the Rendezvous Merry Hotel before and after a cruise. The hotel itself is adequate. Breakfast plentiful, mini bar held enough for our needs . The staff were friendly and helpful but only to the point of doing 'enough' but no more. We'd probably happily return for a one night stay, but wouldn't base a holiday from there.

STAY DETAILS March 29 – April 1, 2015 Room 1207 – double room I can not recommend the Rendezvous Merry Hotel based on the bad customer service and the bed we had that had barely any cushion on top of the springs.

A great location, only a 5 minute walk from beautiful parks, temples, shopping and nightlife, so even though the place looks like it hasn't been maintained well I still recommend it to any bargain shopper. Again the only reason I give the rating of poor is strictly on the quality and maintenance of the hotel. Its location is 5 star!

We stayed here on a tour, so we did not book it. The buffet meal was excellent, if you knew how to negotiate it. The hotel could do with some new carpet and other updates, but really was quite comfortable and a pleasant stay.

The room was so small, I kept tripping over our luggage, and it had a slight smell of smoke. This is probably due to the fact that they don't actively monitor the non-smoking areas as much as they do in the U.S. The air conditioning was in the process of getting fixed, so for half our stay, we were hot...

Dear guest, we are glad that you had a great impression on the dining environment and service. As to the problems you reflected, the hotel management have paid high attention and requested Housekeeping Dept. to conduct the smoke-odor-removal treatment in all the non-smoking rooms asap. In future, we will strengthen the supervision of non-smoking area. What's more, air-conditioning maintenance work... More

There was absolutely no Air Conditioning or air flowing though our hotel room for the ENTIRE stay. With the air being stagnant at 82 degrees Fahrenheit we were extremely uncomfortable. We talked to staff, we talked to managers but nobody was willing to help. Instead, these were the ridiculous responses from various individuals: 1. "It's working you don't know how... More

Dear Ms Lo, First and foremost, please accept my sincere apologies to the unpleasant whereabouts during your stay in our hotel. Registering around 82 degrees Fahrenheit on 2nd & 3rd May, it was uncomfortably warm. Adding more unease, the central air-conditioning was not in full functionality due to detection & debugging. We fully and truly recognize that this is brought... More

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights one week ago. Shanghai was our last stop on our 10 day China tour with Gate1. The night before we stayed at this hotel, we stayed at the Embassador hotel in Xian which was gorgeous. It was a difficult transition to this hotel. There was nothing wrong with this hotel,It just was not... More

The Rendezvous Merry Hotel Shanghai is a tall, newly renovated but still is a little dark and dingy in places. Beware, the elevators doors are dangerous - you have litterly 2 seconds for your party to enter and then the doors slap shut with great force. One elderly lady in our group was struck and it clearly hurt her. My... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
