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.

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

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
