Sun + 30 degC + low pollution = nice afternoon but an average pool area. I did not stay at this hotel, this review is for the pool facilities only. 160 RMB gets you access to the 5th floor rooftop pool in the afternoon sun, surrounded by highrise. Patio is faded, loungers are plastic, towels have seen better days, bar... More

Stayed there a few days for the first part of my two week trip through China. The lobby is grand and the staff was very helpful especially the concierge staff. The rooms were a little on the small side but loaded with amenities. The only issue I had was the very slow drains in the bathroom for the tub and... More

The main reason to choose this hotel was the location. The hotel located in Pudong area, near (10 minutes by taxi) to Maglev station (connection to TPE international airport) and near (15 minutes by taxi) to the Shanghai International Exhibition center. For business (bicycle) this is perfect. If you would like to sightseeing maybe the other side of the river... More

Stayed here for a week on business. I had booked a club room, and was given a room on the 42nd floor (top floor) I wonder if these rooms were added as an after thought. The lift only goes to 41st floor, then you can either take the stairs OS a small lift that goes from 41 to 42. When... More

good hotel moderately priced but below the 5* rated hotels in china. rooms are spacious and comfortable. breakfast selection could be better for european taste. the obvious weakness is lack of wifi in hotel lobby. good location - close to Pudong. shopping mall just right in front of hotel.

I´ve been at this hotel on a business trip for four nights. The staff was really friendly, spoke a god english. They even made it possible for me that although my room was not prepared yet (I arrived at 9am) I received the keys to another room to take a shower and switched the rooms in the evening. The breakfast... More

I have been at this hotel before and in my mind it needs renovating and upgrading. Got a very small room which I changed the next day. They sell this as a 5 star hotel and I dont agree - far from it. Location is good for business. However, next time in Shanghani I will check in on a different... More

I stayed as part of a holiday rather than a business trip and chose this hotel due to location. Overall the hotel was good - a lot cheaper than the usual suspects (Hilton etc) but I suspect the standard was as good. I'd recommend upgrading to the breakfast rate on check in - the range is good and it is... More
