Service needs an upgrade from bell man through to concierge. Bed is not comfortable, a bit stiff compared to my other 4 star experiences. Bathroom amenities is... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this business hotel. Good points- 1.value for money: you are paying 1/3 of Hilton's price and it's almost right next to each other. I had paid a little extra for a corner room, and it was worth it with the extra space, making it very comfortable to do my work in the room on the... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour so everything was booked and included in the price, but I imagine it was pretty reasonable, since our tour was a great deal. On the whole I was very impressed with the Equatorial. It is in an excellent location within walking distance of Nanjing Rd (popular shopping area) and barely... More

Great Hotel in a great location. 5 minutes to the metro. Beautiful decor but no free wifi in the rooms which is a shame. Great breakfast buffet which had both western and Chinese picks. Nice, clean rooms. Would recommend it to those staying in shanghai.

Would definitely recommend this, staff are very friendly, location is impeccable, room is clean and well serviced. Only problem is wifi is free only in lobby area, cost is fairly high in the room. But overall, definitely a wonderful experience.

This is a clean and comfortable hotel with a great view! There is free wifi in the lobby and a good complimentary breakfast. Plenty of places to visit within walking distance. I enjoyed sipping a coffee and looking out at the city view as the sunset.
