“Regular visitor on business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

I have stayed at Penta regularly (once every 2~3 months) when visiting Shanghai, this speaks volumes for the quality of rooms, dining fascilities & food, & especially the extremly helpful staff! Penta is also ideally positioned within Shanghai for the metro & plenty of attractions within walking distance.
I would highly recommend Penta without giving it a second thought, for both business & tourists, great service & very good value for money!!!!!

Having stayed here for 2 months it became a place of refuge. Staff is very kind, and became very familiar. All the female staff are gorgeous. I just wish they had a better gym area and that they had a swimming pool. Rates for food and beverage at the restaurant and bar are what you would expect form a hotel.

We liked the atmosphere in this hotel very much, since it is relaxed and friendly. The spacious room and especially the beds were surprisingly good (not Chinese!). A nice choice in breakfast, and perfect hamburgers for dinner.
Location of hotel is excellent, since it is besides the metro station. We enjoyed the (free) bicycles, to discover (surprising) Shanghai.
We recommend this hotel, it is for sure our next stay visiting Shanghai.

Great location, comfortable rooms, superb food, great facilities, relaxed atmosphere, friendly & efficient staff & service; what more could you ask for?

Greeted with a smile & a 'Hello' or Neihao' by every member of staff that I met, be it floor, reception or rooms.
Great breakfast to suit all tastes.
Relaxed common areas with lots of facilities.
Superb dim sum restaurant, Yue, with some of the best service in Shanghai.
Clean, comfortable & relaxing rooms.
Reception staff were able to communicate in both English & Cantonese, which was great for our mixed group over on business from Hong Kong.
Restaurant reservations in Shanghai made with ease.
Addresses for destinations written in Simplified Chinese by reception staff to give to the taxi drivers, very few of who speak English.

Penta Hotel is my first choice everytime when I have a business trip to Shanghai. Ths staff there is warm-hearted, and you may have a feeling of home-like. The hotel is with good location in city center and traffic is also very convenient, subway or taxi as you like.

I started to stay at Penta since 2008. The location is very convenient. I like this hotel very much, especially after the hotel re-decorated its' reception area. The hotel made me feel very comforable and relax. The room is simple but was kept very clean. The breakfast is well selected by the chef although at first look, there were no so many choice. When I looked at outside to see the people and street when I have breakfast, the feeling is so unique.

Room Tip: rooms on the west side are quiter
