Nice place with friendly staff. Most staff can speak English well and inconvenience due to language is minimal. They have a happening bar cum restaurant at the lobby which doubles up as a salsa dance floor on Sunday afternoons. Rooms are clean, house keeping is just OK, they may forget to clean something occasionally. Internet is the only sore point.... More

Firstly remember this is a three star hotel, so the five star rating reflects the results as it relates to a three star hotel. I was here for two weeks as was leading a program for students in Shanghai. My students were all very happy with the hotel (and remember they were sharing rooms). The only downside was the free...

Location was splendid, easily accessible and with plenty of amenities in the immediate area. Room was cosy and comfortable. A different scent would have worked better; not sure if it is just my room. Power outlets are catered to multi-region so travellers need not worry about a power adapter. Water takes a while to clear in the shower stall so... More

I forgot how many times I stayed at Penta when I went to Shanghai. Each time, when I entered the front door of the Penta, I didn't feel like to come into a hotel, I just feel like to come back home. I was so familiar with this hotel form the front desk, bar area, and the room, etc. I... More

Pentahotel offers really good amenities: beautiful and cosy bedrooms, clean and quiet, good breakfast (large buffet with a great choice of food), good location close to the metro station and shopping centres. We really enjoyed our stay, except for one thing: the staff. In such an international and high standard hotel, it is unacceptable that the front office staff is... More

Very nice hotel, close to the park and subway. Only few stations away from Nanjing road. Rooms are pretty decent. There is a nice pub on the ground floor with good offer. The thing that bothers me is that I reserved a room in no smoking area and got a "sorry, only smoking area rooms" and ended up in an... More

The Pentahotel is a clean, western style hotel which provides nice rooms and has good access to public transport which is essential in this megacity. We stayed 3 days. Staff was friendly and many of them spoke English. We had a hick up with our booking (probably the agents fault) but this was rectified the next morning. Meals and beers... More

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighborhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
