I stayed in Shanghai for 3 days after being in Beijing and Xi'an on a Hayes and Jarvis tour. Hotel was in convenient location, with good breakfast selection (with Chinese and western food) and spacious, clean rooms. I was sharing a room with my mum and aunty - 3 single beds - however on arrival only two beds were in... More

Went to Shanghai for a business trip, did not plan to stay until the meetings ran a bit too long so we had to stay for the night. The hotel itself is located near the French concession, and also about a 5-10 minute walk from the Jiangsu Rd. Station of Metro Line 2, so it is relatively easy in terms... More

The Rendezvous Merry is working to be a mid-range hotel, but fall sort in a number of service areas if you are a non-Mandarin speaking traveler. Very few of the staff or managers speak enough English for truly helpful communication about recommendations or assistance with issues at the hotel. We stayed there in the summer, and were told that the... More

Very good hotel. Great beds, nice breakfast, but crowded and hard to get a table. Rooms small but nice. I love a good bed and these had good beds and pillows. Well worth the money we paid. Easy to get cheap taxis out front. Staff very friendly and helpful. Concierges speak basic English. Not enough to help book stuff, but... More

When needing a cheap hotel, I used to go to the "Donghu guesthouse" on Donghu road, but recently discovered the Rendez-vous Merry. I have to say that for a budget hotel (less than 400 CY per night on booking.com) it is a really good option for Shanghai: the location is quite central, on Yan'An road, close from the French concession...

Location - on a busy road, but they all are - it's a bit irrelevant in Shanghai, it's too big to walk to anything, everyone drives! Service - polite and adequate.

This hotel is part of an Australian chain. The beds are average quality for China (slightly softer than a bamboo mat). Most hotels in China supply one bottle of drinking water per guest per day.
