This hotel doesn't cater to westerners and they likely had never before seen so many as was in our group. We taxed their language skills and they taxed our expectations. If you are not part of a large group, the outlook might just be a whole lot better as one of our group stayed on and was urged to move... More

This hotel's position is so far out of Shanghai not even the tour buses seem to know how to get there. The hotel itself is just dreadful, the staff are not helpful, the breakfast is mediocre and the rooms are shabby, falling to bits and dirty. I was sharing with another person from a tour and our room didn't have... More

The Great Tang Hotel did a great job with the China theme - both inside and outside the hotel. The hotel was built in 2006 so it wasn't really new but they did a good job maintaining it. However the beds are very hard and uncomfortable so don't expect to get good sleep unless you like sleeping on a rock.... More

About 1 mile from circuit and even closer to golf course. I had room 1708 which faced both. Air conditioner worked fine as did other amenities. Did not turn on the TV. Included breakfast was surprisingly good. Ate at the Japanese restaurant and did enjoy the noodle dishes with a cold beer. Staff in this restaurant were excellent. All hotel... More

An excellent Hotel for the price, and only a 10 minute hotel shuttle trip from the Shanghai International Circuit, an excellent base. Not ideal for Shanghai City Centre sightseeing, c. 1 hour drive. The service we received was excellent, management & staff could not have been more accomodating. Room & breakfast above average. Specialist restaurants expensive-ish! Departed with very fond... More

This is for the Great Tang Hotel near Automotive City, Shanghai (near the end of Metro Line 11). Make sure you get the correct hotel. There are multiple Great Tang Hotels. About 4 or 5 years old. Clean, quiet, good value. Chinese food was good. North American food was OK.

After a long flight from Canada this was not exactly what was hoped for or expected. It is miles and miles from everything. We gave up seeing Expo from this location as it took 1 1/2hrs. plus from the airport. What a dirty disappointing experience. BEWARE OF CHINA'S HOTEL RATINGS. They are a far cry from North American standards. The... More

This hotel is unsuitable for international travelers. It is at least 1 1/2 hours outside of the city, over a 30 minute walk from any mass transit, in a polluted industrial area that had our eyes stinging and lungs burning (it is much worse than the center of Shanghai). The staff does not speak English, there is no ATM, and... More

Soiled carpets in rooms. Dilapitaed furniture in lobby. Phone malfunctioned; kept ringing all night. Poor service. Don't cash travellers' cheques. Can't give simple instructions on how to travel within Shanghai.
