The rooms have not been updated for many years but still a very good hotel. Excellent located on Nanjing Road close to good shopping and reasturants. Very good gym in the hotel. Quick room service. Great and huge breakfast but a bit expensive. Overall good value for money.

Very convenient if you have to go the exhibition center. Nothing luxurious, but excellent if you are on business. Confortable rooms, decent service, good location and reasonable prices. Breakfast a little too busy and confusing.

What a perfect location for first-timers to Shanghai. We loved the breakfast buffet as the choices were bountiful. I'm a coffee lover and was surprised that their coffee ("Ocean" brand) was excellent. The concierge was most helpful in helping us to get to all the key sights. We stayed for 14 days and all was kept clean daily.

We had an issue getting the rooms cool enough during the middle of the summer. We stayed here one night and needed to move. We could not get the room below 25C. Although that may seem fine for most we keep our home around 69. From Houston, I am accustom to the heat and humidity but it was very uncomfortable... More

I usually use this page to compare hotels in a city and felt safe after seeing that in 2013 it received an award of excellence from Tripadvisor (which I also saw at the reception).

I was in shanghai for a night and stayed at the jc mandarin. It was a nice big room but didn't really have a homey feel. The bed was very hard and the bathroom lighting was very dim. The rooms were aged. It was in the heart of the shopping district but far away from other attractions like the bund.... More

The JC Mandarin is not going to be a hotel much longer. Within the next year or so, it is going to be turned into an office building. While it is starting to show its age, it is still a fairly nice hotel. The best thing it has going for it is the breakfast buffet. It is far and away... More
