Hotel is perfectly located, easy to reach from anywhere, has beautiful rooms, i've stayed on 42nd floor. Good services, plenty of things to do inside, has a spa area. Price paid was ridiculous for a 5* hotel. I recommend it to business travellers.

The Purple Mountain was recommended by the company I was doing business with, as it is near to the Pudong business district and Shanghai Expo site. Seeing the Intercontinental a block away on the map and a Starbucks around the corner let me know they were right. The location can't be better--5 minute walk to Shanghai's major metro station connects... More

The welcome from the staff could not have been better. The room was lovely - clean, comfortable and with everything we needed. Very nice bathroom and super robes provided.The breakfast was great, but rather expensive. The outdoor pool was closed as it was too early in the year, but the gym was good. Good location - close to the metro... More

Since I was arriving by an early morning flight, I had intentionally booked for previous night of the arrival, made payments for 2 nights and also specifically mentioned that I will check in during the early morning. Payment was made for "1 extra night to cover the early morning check in" and a regular "1 night stay". The receptionist(s) had... More

The restaurants in the hotel were very good/ breakfast Buffet was plentiful and choices for all nations of travel. The restaurant on the second floor for dinner was really good and as well appeals to locals not just the tourists. Try the... More

We arrived at a quarter to six and our reservations were held till six. We stepped up to reception and as we introduced our party a man standing nearby pushing in front of us (normal for China) and started talking discreetly to the receptionist. We patiently waited and finally at five minutes after six the man stepped aside with a... More

I´ve been there for business trip and if you stay here the location is great to get at some places for electronically devices and some markets where you can fine and buy a lot of thing. The rooms are so clean and you can choose for a smoking room or nonsmoking room. Near the hotel there is a starbucks coffee... More
