If you want an excellent hotel that feels like home, right next to the Metro and in a super location - this is the one. Fantastic bedrooms and service I could not fault. I will be back in Shanghai in 2015 and will be bringing my work friends with me!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Jia Shanghai. The service and accommodation was simply outstanding. The hotel is a boutique hotel in Nanjing Road and is in the hands of new owners who have just taken over and are in the process of improving this boutique hotel be leaps and bounds. We were treated to outstanding service and... More

I had a hard time ranking this hotel, because it is worth a 5/5 for design, room and location, but a shameful 2 for service. I have never seen in my life a luxury hotel with such a huge gap between design and service. First, I admit that check-in was fast and efficient. Design of the hotel and rooms was... More

This is my second review of the Jia hotel after many stays there. I have said it is excellent but the experience if my last two visits have found that standards are slipping. The reception staff are very unfriendly and very unhelpful. I would have thought that after at least 6 stays of minimum 5 nights each, that there would... More

Location of this hotel is great for me on this trip. Need some refreshing of the rooms and yes, you got to eat outside as the menu is quite limited and nothing after 10:30 pm. Staffs are helpful. Love the little red note book with Mao! The room was too big for me alone!

Stayed at the Jia hotel several years ago and loved the experience so thought I would give it a go again this trip. Things had changed from down stairs lounge and reception to the 3rd Floor but there was no one on the ground floor to advise of this change when arriving so strange couldn't find any signage so you...

Look, its really quite a lovely hotel , great decor, lots of nice quirks, so different from the typical branded hotels. You have a Chairman Mao book in the drawer next the Chinese Checkers. The location is of course good. But when I arrived at 10:10pm and tried to order room service, I was struck with a 15 minute delay.... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in Shanghai. It's situated on West Nanjing Road, opposite from some of the most popular shopping centres in the city. The street behind is a pedestrian path where one can find many good casual restaurants. Other than its convenient location, Jia's service is very personal and attentive. The staff at the front desk... More

The Jia Shanghai is in a brilliant location & enables easy access to everything in Shanghai. It is on #2 subway line which is fantastic. It is surrounded by any type of shopping and restaurant experience you would want and it is away from the ghastly tourist touts of the Bund & Peoples Square & East Nanjing Road area. It... More

I hear the building is up for lease which means JIA is closing? There is nothing interesting about the hotel and service is poor. Does anyone go to the restaurant? Had brunch there a while ago and was not interesting. Doormen sleep at the entrance. Sad.
