“This is a smokers hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I arrived at the hotel in the evening after my training. The hotel staff were very courteous and helpful.

When I asked for a non-smoking room, I was given a room. When I reached the floor of my room, the entire floor smells of cigarette smoke (considering this is a non-smoking floor). When I reached to my room, I was shocked that the room looks more of a dungeon than a hotel room, the window is so small that I feel like a prisoner in this room. Furthermore, the lights are very few which makes the room so dark. I had an eerie feeling when I stepped in to the room.

The paint on the walls seems like cracking and peeling off. Not too sure how old is this hotel but it is not what I expect of an Accor hotel brand. I asked for them to change my room to the one with bigger windows. Surprisingly, they asked one of their staff to come up to my room and picked me up and showed me the room I have requested for.

The alternative room they gave me is smaller and in a smokers floor. But I do not care at all as having a big window where sunshine can come in the morning is more important to me than the size of the room.

The breakfast place (square 2) has good selection of food. Quite happy with the breakfast. One thing that I find not good about the hotel location is it is far from places to eat. The nearest metro station is about 15 to 20 minutes walk. They do not provide free shuttle service to the metro station.

A big let down is the hotel does not really have a non-smoker floor at all. Even non-smoking floors are smells of smoke from cigarettes or cigar. If you want to get second hand smoke and cancer from smoke then better check-in here.

I will never ever come to this hotel.

Room Tip: Do not take rooms at room 21 (ie. 3221, 3321, etc), this room looks like a dungeon with very small w...

We have now stayed at the hotel four times and enjoyed the benefits of the premier business floor. The service provided by staff is exceptionally good and overall that provided by all personnel in the hotel is of very high quality. The only area where improvement could be made is the evening turn down service that only occurred once in our ten night stay.

Hotel was fine and good value for money. My only complaint was the service level in your business centre as the attendant was not able to advise what the international access code was dialing out of China.

Had a really good 4 night stay here. 40 mins from Pudong Airport by taxi, great view in high floor room overlooking Pudong skyline. Room clean, non-smoking. Friendly staff with specially appointed Guest Relation Managers to liaise with guests over sights, advice and generally how stay is going. Century Ave metro about 10-15 mins walk gives quick access to main Shanghai sights. Other Metro option closer for other stations. Good buffet breakfast. Cafe option in foyer for coffee / cake etc or lighter meals rather than main restaurant.

Downside - price of drinks in bar and restaurant.

Overall well recommended, good value for money if happy not to be in exact middle if Shanghai.

Stayed for 3 nights for a convention, the hotel staff was great for requests. They always provide excellent service whatever they can provide. Location was nice also. We have a nice view of the Shanghai skyline at the 35th floor. Food was also OK.
Be an Accor member and be prepared to be pampered!
