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

Spent my weekend over Moller for our valentine celebration. Indeed, when you step into the lobby of the hotel, It brings you back to the era of Moller. The building,furnitures,paintings and every single things in hotel are well preserved.Thanks for the great hospitality and kind staff, which make our stay over Moller memorable.. A must stay hotel when you visit... 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

Loved this hotel, stayed here for a night in March, 2014. The vintage style reminds me of hotels in Europe, beautiful staircases, lobby and garden. Rooms are spacious and huge bathrooms. Walkable distance to the new shopping mall iapm. Will recommend this hotel to my friends who wants to experience something unique when visiting Shanghai.

1. I arrived and my room had a toilet that did not work. I was moved to a smaller room. I found this unacceptable. I am not used to a downgrade. I was told there was no other rooms. 2. I was then informed that the toilet in my initial room was fixed and so I moved back in there.... More

In Shanghai for business frequently and decided to stay on for the weekend and opted for a different experience than the business hotels. Big Mistake! I left the high comfort, fantastic location, and superior service of Le Meridien for this dump. The service was poor due to both unwillingness and lack of English of staff. The breakfast buffet was unimpressive... More
