Good location. This would be the advantage of this hotel. Rooms are well kept and housekeeping is of an excellent standard. Unfortunately there are not strict enforcement of no smoking so there is smoke filtering through within parts of the hotel, for example in the hotel corridors and in the front lobby area where guests can smoke in the lobby...

Stayed here for just a night in the executive floor. All worked pretty well. Didn't have time due to business to explore the facilities. Had lunch in the dining room which was pretty average and staff not very helpful.

Located in the French Concession. Many quaint little shops nearby make for nice strolls and interesting dining. Full service wifi and and great breakfasts make this a nice location for a stay in Shanghai.

We stayed here through our tourGate 1. This hotel was the one that was lower quality among the 3 we used in China. Staff is too busy. The do not exchange money after 1000pm until 700 am. Rooms are small and uncomfortable. Breakfast was yucky. I was surprise a company such as Gate 1 used this hotel.

After reading so many negative comments about this hotel on Trip Advisor I was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was during our stay. My husband and I thought the rooms were quite lovely if not the largest we experienced during our tour of China. The bathroom was large and clean. The linens were new and bath sheets rather than...

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour. I would deem it about a 2 or possibly 3 star by U.S. standards. Of the three hotels we stayed at during the tour, this was the most run-down. Rooms were adequate. Everything is clean, but everything is also old. The faucet head in the bathtub shot off, spewing water... More

The hotel proved to be less basic than we had imagined and was more than adequate in bedroom and bathroom size although like all the hotels we stayed in China it was not sparklingly clean!! The beds were very, very hard and some of our group found this difficult and slept on top of the duvet!! The food was adequate... More

Shanghai was the final stop of our Gate1 Tour of China. Location is exceptional near the French Concession area, 5 mins walk to the nearest metro station and decent driving distances from all of the major attractions (30 mins taxi ride max). The hotel was decent: got used to the stiff bed, clean decent-sized room but slightly outdated. Breakfast is... More

We spent 3 nights at the Shanghai Hotel and were quite satisfied----even though the room was smaller than the other places we stayed. The breakfast buffet was nothing to brag about, as far as buffets go. But we would rate it as "good." The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, so we felt very comfortable there. The location is... More
