I got to stay for 4 days at the hotel recently. Very neat and well maintained ambience ,Courteous staff, prompt service all seemed exceptional. At restaurant in the first floor the hospitality extended by each of the staff had been exceptional. Anything that I asked for was served with a smile on face. Location of the hotel is quite good...

I was scheduled to be in Shanghai for 5 weeks for a work orientation program and booked this hotel, since it was the closest hotel to the office that was also within the "modest" budget I was given. I however had to throw in the towel after a week, for the following reasons. The room was dark and depressing, furnishings... More

I visited in July 2012 on a large group tour. This was our first location to stay while we were in China. It turned out to be one of my favourites. The restaurant was great, the staff were friendly and the room quality was very nice!

Room was fine, reasonable breakfast. We were booked in as part of a tour we were on. It was a little way out of city centre, but fortunately the underground train was close by and easy to use. Amenities at hotel were ok, staff were nice. Lots of tours tend to use the hotel, certainly used for business men/women. No... More

Checked-in staff (a Chinese gentle man) was very bad manner, not very patient to answer the questions and even there's no eye contact. The decoration of the room was old, but it's clean. Very thankful that they kept my mobile which I left at the room, after checking out. the security staff was very kind when I was back to... More

Location: 15 mins walk from the nearest Mrt. Room: very tired room : needs a renovation soon. Aircon need servicing soon. Breakfast: absolutely lousy spread of breakfast.not worth the pricing. Service: the only saving grace. Internet: quite slow

I have been staying in this hotel for a number of years now more due to habit than anything else. From checking in to leaving I cannot say the staff are friendly, and I actually think some of the staff on the check-in desk are quite rude. For the number of foreign travellers that I see staying there, few people... More

We went as a large group with students and the hotel was really in need of an update. The wifi did not work in the room despite having the password (login page did not reroute properly), nor did our TV turn on. They ran out of room keys so gave us one for 2 people. The room reeked of cigarettes... More

When I made the reservation I thought Rainbow will be like Jin Jiang Hotel on Mao Ming Road but I was wrong. This is a factory type hotel far from being international although they had many western guests. English is not widely known accross the hotel staff. The rooms are small and the price is above average. The wifi was... More

Disappointed by the hotel: everything is very Chinese and not geared to the casual tourist / businessman, with some features below standard. List of gripes: - English not widely spoken by staff - TV has 45 channels, 42 of which are in Chinese, and the remaining 3 have a grainy picture and bad sound - getting a freshly brewed coffee...

Staying in Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang

Neighborhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
