“High Tea at Aura”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I haven't stayed at the hotel, but I've done the high tea at Aura three times. It's one of my favorite in Shanghai; the view is absolutely the best! Unfortunately you have to go very early to secure a table at a window otherwise you are stuck waiting for one. The trays of goodies are excellent quality of food (at some of them, the food looks nice but is average at best) and it's one of the only ones where my friends and I demolish every bit. The service isn't totally amazing; we found you have to wave the servers down if you need something. Also, the Christmas tea wasn't as good as the regular high tea, which was a little disappointing as the option to order the regular one wasn't there. Overall - it is the place where we take our guests for a view and an afternoon of "playing ladies."

Loved this places, especially the creative arrangement in the room, including the bath tub in the middle of the living room, the great arrangement of sweets, snacks as a welcome gift, the fascinating pool on the top floor and being able to have breakfast eye-in-eye with the Shanghai TV tower .... very very impressive. I will be back.

Room Tip: Facing the TV tower and the river. High up floor. The view is simply amongst the most breath-taking...

You get to see how big the city of Shanghai is, only from a high-rise tower. Ritz Carlton occupying the top floors of IFC is the best hotel to enjoy Shanghai skyline. My bund view suite was regal & huge, and the view mind blowing.
The location was perfect as the Super Brand & IFC malls are nearby.

Flair bar on 58th floor is one of the best spots for sundown cocktails in Shanghai.
This hotel is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Bund view Room / Suite.

The Ritz Carlton Shanghai is amazing. From the moment you step up to Reception until the day you leave, you are treated royally. Our accommodation was exceptional. The mattress extremely comfortable; the bathroom a statement in marble and glass, first class amenities, hotel restaurant excellent. Our room was quiet, clean, comfortable. I can't say enough good things about the high standard of the Ritz Carlton. It was an oasis of comfort following a hectic day of touring around the city. What did I like least? Its hard to say....I can't think of anything.

Stayed in a suite, but was pretty small compared to what I was expecting for the price. I've stayed in similarly priced suites that were much larger. Maybe it was just the room I was in.

Positives:
Club lounge and food there
Service from staff
Comfortable bed
Giant bathroom

Negatives:
Suite room was a little smaller than I was expecting

I titled this review "an oasis" because it really does separate you from the mess that is Shanghai 40-50 stories below you. After a day around the city, coming back to this was a nice way to rewind, relax, and separate yourself from the city.

I have no words to describe how amazing is The Ritz Carlton Pudong. All of employees are so amazing. Rooms are awesome and incredible. I´ve already stayed in other 5star hotels in the world but nothing is comparable with RC Pudong.
