Very nice, clean hotel, nothing at all to complain about, except the location. Do: Stay here if you have business nearby, or a conference at the hotel Do Not: Stay here if you are in Shanghai for sight-seeing, it's far away from everywhere you will want to go Good room, decent service, nice food, slept very well.

Although this was my first trip to China... More

Fabulous Hotel very close to the city center, with the very modern design , gym, pool and spa. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff of the hotel is very amicable and claims to take exceptionally good care of their guests. Delicious breakfast and luxury ambience, well worthy of 5 stars!!!
