“Modern and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Staff were helpful and friendly, breakfast was good, and apartments were beautiful and comfortable. Coin operated washer and dryer was a little expensive (20 yuan each with washing powder provided), and stoves in the apartments took very long to heat up (it took us an hour to cook 2 bowls of instant noodles), The hotel is located close to a metro and a mall, and approximately 4 stops (and 3 transfers) to nanjinglu and the bund.

Modena Putuo is a great place to stay. Here's my review of my 7 nights stay at Modena.

Booking: Emailed the hotel for higher levels rooms and they replied within a day. Cool.

Entrance of hotel: Small hotel lobby but with good front desk staff with prompt service.
Lift: In order to get to any floors, room access cards are required to be scanned. Security wise, not bad.

Suite: Booked Loft Studio Deluxe and Loft Studio Deluxe Twin. Upon entering the Lofe Studio Deluxe suite, saw the kitchen at first floor. Second floor is our living room with balcony. Just a few steps and that's where the bedroom and toilet is located. As for the Loft Studio Deluxe, there is a queen size bed at the first floor and another queen size bed at the second floor. There is no living room with sofa for this suite. However, the other facilities are similar.

Within the suite: Individual room WIFI that allows access to Facebook! Also, huge TV with international channels to surf. Big comfortable sofa that can be a bed if there is a 3rd guest for Loft Studio Deluxe. 2 sets of telephone (one cordless and the other is with cord). Study table with chair as well as reading lights. Iron and board to smoothen wrinkled shirts. iPlayer to play music and act as alarm clock (we did not use and so we unplugged it from the power socket). Bedside lights for more dim atmosphere. Safe, bath robes, bedroom slippers, umbrella. Ample clothes hangers for about 5-7 clothes.

Toilet: Shower area has a little bench to rest on. Strong water jets. Digital weighing machine in the toilet. Usual toiletries.

Kitchen: Full kitchen set ready for cooking. Pot, pans, spatula, heat mat, apron, knife, can opener, wine opener, fridge and oven and eating utensils etc.

Within Hotel: 2nd floor, Gym, cafe, kids playroom, clothes washer

Nearby Hotel: Langao Train station is very nearby (Line 7) within 5mins walk. Shopping mall with Watsons, MacDonalds Subway, Pizza Hut, Happy Lemon, foodcourt, kids stuff, supermarkets and restaurants. There's stores selling clothes, dresses, shoes, lingerie, umbrella. 24hr Family Mart is also within 5mins walk from hotel. Starbucks just right below hotel.

Overall my friends and I enjoyed the stay very much.

There are many hotels in Shanghai,at the first becoming,it is really hard to choose.Because the mixed comments on forum.But compared to others,this one almost have all the positive comments by Asians and foreigners. So we just go for this hotel and it is the right decision.

This hotel locates in a quiet area,not the city centre,but it is just several mins away from the metro station.And you can access to the attractions easily.

The hotel is new and clean. We've booked a studio,has a kitchen,living room and bedroom.The room is spacious for 3 people as well. In the kitchen,they have all the utensils,the pot,electric stove and microwave.The bathroom also provide the toiletries.

And the WiFi is available in the room and public area. And there is a food court and convenience stores downstairs.So everything just convenient.

Room Tip: Stayed at upper floor is better and maybe could request a room facing city view.

Check in very efficient. Got two big screen iMac in the lobby for use. Nicely design LOFT room type. Excellent! Got an open kitchen. Upstair is the living room with big sofa. A few more steps up there is a desk and bedroom, bathroom. Overall very nicely design. Neat and clean. Very helpful doorman who got me taxi every time so I don't need to stand outside and wait. Close to subway just 5 minutes walk. Next to hotel there is a convenient store where you may buy all the food and drinks you want.

Room Tip: Executive room type is the same as deluxe except that it is on higher level.

My (young adult) daughter and I stayed at this lovely hotel/appartment for two nights in May 2014. First things first, make sure you get off at the right subway stop! This is a new hotel and most taxi drivers and information kiosks have no idea where it is. Part of the problem is that it is known under "Fraser Modena" and it is a new location. Take the subway Line 7 to Langao Road and follow the escalator to the street level. It is literally 10 steps away if you come out the right doors. There is a Starbucks right next door...
The staff at the front desk are very friendly and speak fluent English. The check in was smooth and quick. My reservation included a very nice buffet breakfast served on the 2nd. floor each morning from 7-10 a.m. Make sure you ask for your eggs as they are brought cooked to order fresh from the kitchen. There is also an outside seating area at the restaurant. Very nice on a spring day. There is a laundromat on the 2nd. floor which costs a few bucks, but detergent is provided free of charge at the front desk. We used the machines without any issues.
The room was on 2 levels and well furnished with 2 flat screens and a well stocked kitchen (no food) for preparing basic meals. The upper level had a Queen sized bed and a TV with a nice view from the 21st. floor balcony. the 2nd. bedroom on the main level had a twin bed. The only drawback to this room layout is that the washroom is attached to the kitchen. The only thing separating someone on the toilet and someone cooking is a sliding galss door. Probably not for the queasy folks...
there is a small underground mall with a McDonalds and a Subway as well as a full food court next door. There is also a Lotus Grocery store located underground next door. Very nice selection of just about anything you may desire.
The location isn't perfect, but right on the subway so really not far from anything. I would highly recommend a stay here!

Room Tip: Higher floors seem nicer.

Always try to stay at serviced apartment than hotel for spacious room and privacy wherever I travel. Modena has interesting soho type interior design; where the kitchen, living room and bedroom are allocated at different levels, which makes you feel that you are living at a duplex apartment. The room design is modern and trendy.

Rate is very good at around USD 90/night, about USD 30 less than the Renaissance Hotel next door. This is at least half the price for other competitive serviced apartments in Shanghai, ie. Fraser, Oakwood and Ascott. Indeed, its location tells you why you got a better rate here - but it is just 4 stops metro away from city center afterall, and they offer free car park for guest. I don't mind to stay slightly off downtown area in exchange for a good deal.

The serviced apartment is part of a complex development, therefore you can get almost everything nearby. 24 hours convenience store and shopping center is just one minute walk away.

I would definately recommend to everyone looking for both short and long stay in Shanghai.
