“Shanghai Cycle Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

The main reason to choose this hotel was the location. The hotel located in Pudong area, near (10 minutes by taxi) to Maglev station (connection to TPE international airport) and near (15 minutes by taxi) to the Shanghai International Exhibition center. For business (bicycle) this is perfect. If you would like to sightseeing maybe the other side of the river (Puchi) recommended.
The rooms (standard floor) not too big, compare to other Shanghai hotel are smaller, but well equipped. Some of standard rooms has two single bed, some of them king size bed – I prefer king size bed, but that time all of this kind of rooms were booked, so I had to use two-single-bed room.
The facilities of hotel are correct: wifi everywhere, nice SPA, restaurant, business room.
The staff was kind, and helpful, and almost all of them can speak English.

Room Tip: As high as possible - less noice, nice view.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for a week on business. I had booked a club room, and was given a room on the 42nd floor (top floor) I wonder if these rooms were added as an after thought. The lift only goes to 41st floor, then you can either take the stairs OS a small lift that goes from 41 to 42. When this hotel was built the view would have been uninterrupted, but now there a tall buildings near blocking the view. A big advantage was that I was able to turn off the air con and open a window, and was high enough to not hear the traffic chaos below. The breakfast in the club room was not great, the offering was to limited. The coffee is awful. I also tried the breakfast on the 2nd floor, which had a full buffet offering, the coffee was still awful. The gym is small but useful and looks over a nice pool. The staff here are very helpful, and most speak English. Over all it's nice enough hotel, but for the money there are better.

good hotel moderately priced but below the 5* rated hotels in china.
rooms are spacious and comfortable.
breakfast selection could be better for european taste.
the obvious weakness is lack of wifi in hotel lobby.
good location - close to Pudong.
shopping mall just right in front of hotel.

I´ve been at this hotel on a business trip for four nights. The staff was really friendly, spoke a god english. They even made it possible for me that although my room was not prepared yet (I arrived at 9am) I received the keys to another room to take a shower and switched the rooms in the evening.
The breakfast is ok but more asian than western style.
You should really try the restaurants for Bejing duck or a good steak and pizza at the italian restaurant.

Room Tip: the higher the floor the better is the view of the skyline

I have been at this hotel before and in my mind it needs renovating and upgrading. Got a very small room which I changed the next day. They sell this as a 5 star hotel and I dont agree - far from it. Location is good for business. However, next time in Shanghani I will check in on a different hotel.
