I stayed at the Argyle recently and found it to be clean, with the staff very helpful. Being an avid plane spotter the view across to Hongqiao airport was an unexpected bonus. The food was good, even for a person who thrives on western tastes, I survived. If you stay at this hotel you must check the AC as it... More

Please avoid this hotel. The location is the only advantage it has. The rooms are small, dirty, with no good view and old. The AC in our room did not work. Despite complaining they did nothing to repair. The linen was dirty and smelly. The service is extremely poor, staff is rude and food is very bad. We had to... More

I don't know where all the mediocre reviews are coming from. After staying a week here on business, I found the breakfast buffet was excellent, yes, it's mostly Chinese food but they have "yu teeow" (those deep fried dough sticks), potstickers, beef and broccoli and western cereals, bananas, milk and O.J.. The dinner restaurant here is delicious, but, yes, Chinese.... More

Stayed here for two nights. Beds are hard, but I guess they are OK. Room was decent and bathrooms were clean as well. What bothered me was that the AC was not working. Also, people smoke everywhere in the hotel. Should have designated smoking areas. Breakfast is limited. Well located and courteous staff.

Later I found in China beds are hard in general. In Morning breakfast I could find a few dishes suitable for me (without Beef and... More

After reading many of the reviews, I was hesitant to stay here, but I'm glad I did. check in was easy and friendly. The English spoken by the desk staff was limited, but a fluent manager was available. There was a concierge available to help with luggage and take it to my room. The room was an average size and...

This was the worst hotel I stayed in in China. It is an Australian chain and it is depressing and sterile. The restaurant where they serve the breakfast buffet was freezing cold and only half ready when about 20 of us were trying to get our breakfast before early morning departures. It is reasonably clean and very convenient to Hongqiao... More

The hotel is just for those who have an early flight. Rooms are basic but clean. Reception is functional but unfriendly. Nobody is helping with the luggage. But the shuttle bus in the morning to Terminal 2 is convenient.

It's hard to beat a five minute walk from Hongqiao terminal one. On the departures level, go outside to the right and walk down the ramp, it's right there. Despite other reviews, the service I received was good. The bed had to be the hardest I've ever encountered, I was concerned but I actually slept well. There is nothing remotely... More

Staying in Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang

Neighborhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
