We had a "king" size bed which was actually two doubles together. Even so the room was large enough to accommodate the extra size. There is a desk with chair, hot water pot, refrigerator and easy chair. The room was clean and comfortable if you needed to spend time in. The breakfast area requires some exploration although all bases are... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Merry Rendezvous Hotel in Shanghai as part of a Gate 1 tour package last week (March 2015). The hotel is a 28 story high-rise hotel that has a distinctly "Western" flavor. We did not require parking, but that did appear to be tight judging from the cramped parking lot in front... More

This hotel was the third and last one on our trip to China with Gate 1 Travel. Excellent choice, Gate 1! The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. There are smoking and not-smoking floors, so you can make a request where you want to stay. The breakfast is on the fifth floor and is very good. Many choices... More

The rooms and quality in this hotel are of high western standards, making it a good choice for business or vacation. Reasonable walk to subway lines (traffic in the area is difficult). There are no health club facilities (pool, sauna, exercise). The breakfast is very good with a lot of choices (western, Chinese, and Japanese).

Just returned from visiting Beijing and Shanghai with Gate 1 Travel. This was my 2nd trip with Gate 1 and I highly recommend them. The Presidential Hotel and Rendevous Merry Hotel were first class facilities. The tour guides were informative and entertaining. We took day trips each day which included lunch at various restaurants. All were delicious. Everything about both... 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.
