The hotel is an interesting old property, with the modern changes made in keeping with it's old school theme. the dining room and grounds, giving the feel of living in another era. Staff are friendly and helpful (though their english is limited), the rooms are clean and well kept and the location works for shopping and is close to the... More

Do not stay here unless you want to pay over the odds for a dirty hotel with poor service and no concept of business travel assistance. Very expensive and insects in the rooms. Awful service I had a poor check in and check out all of the front desk staff seem unable to understand much English and do not know... More

I had booked 2 nights at the hotel at the end of a business trip in Shanghai. The problems started at check in, when the ladies at reception wanted me to pay a big deposit upfront, on my credit card. The room they put me in was tiny, and not very clean. What I didn't know is that the hotel... More

The Moller Villa is an interesting, supposedly Scandanavian-style, mansion dating back to 1936. Unfortunately most of the guest rooms are in a less attractive ‘replica’ building behind the original building, hemmed in by a number of modern high rise buildings. The rooms themselves are comfortable enough and the location is convenient. Advertised rates are reasonable, a good breakfast is included,... More

This is an interesting historical building. It looks like an old haunted castle with its hybrid gothic/tudor/late art noveaux architecture. The villa is now transformed to a luxury hotel - still a stay at a quite affordable price. A historical hotel indeed, built in 1036 by my countryman the swedish shipping magnate and horse-racing enthusiast Erik Möller, occupied by the... More

This is an old Austrian/German type building almost right in the centre of Downtown Shanghai, pretty much surrounded by much more modern hotel tall glass tower eddifices. Found it by accident and just stayed the one night on business due to good rates on offer. So, the building is very old, very traditional, therefore you can't expect a 5 star... More

The hotel has an old European feeling. A lot of wood inside the lobby and hallways, wooden staircase. Ceilings are quite low, rooms are not big but they are cozy with again a lot of wooden surfaces. Electrical outlets are far away from bed and in my room the European plug tended to fall out constantly. Bathroom is clean, toilet... More

I did not stay in the hotel but wandered into the restaurant and had a dinner. Exterior and interior are very interesting, beautiful in the German-Scandinavian fantasy style - unique for Shanghai. However, the dining experience was very poor, incredibly disappointing service especially for the price that is expensive even for Shanghai. I ordered three dishes, a beer and a... More

This villa in Shanghai IS like a fairytale. Very nice room and extremely pleasant surroundings, with the most beautifull garden in the middle of the big city. I had a very pleasant two night stay and will not hesitate to recommed others to try this. Also try the restaurant in the back of the garden, which was top class. The... More
