This was my first hotel in Shanghai and I'm trying hard not to consider it a dump. The beds are old and hard. Carpets are stained. Hallways smell like smoke. Breakfast is ok. Bathrooms not very clean. Lobby furniture is uncomfortable. Internet accessibility wasn't consistent.

I have stayed in many hotels in Shanghai and this was one of the worst one. The hotel, even though it says it got renovated in 2008, it looks so old and outdated. The sofas, carpets and furniture looks like they have not cleaned since they were installed. The tables are so sticky and disgusting. You don't want to seat... More

The hotel felt cheap, ugly and unmodernised. The interior had lost some paint and it felt unhygienic. The hotel has about 13-16 floors, but only 2 elevators. So you can imagine how long it took to get up and down! It was only Chinese food at the breakfast, such as rice, some fruits and vegetables, some weird sausage, white toast... More

Mattress was collasped so can't sleep properly during out stay. Their gym located on the 3rd floor with three machines but all looks so old and dusty.(It was actually a normal... More

The Magnificent International Hotel is located conveniently between two metro stations, namely Lao Xi Min (2 street blocks from the hotel) and Da Shi Jie (3 street blocks). Without any luggage, you can reach either station in between 5 to 7 minutes. The room I stayed in was spacious even with a king-sized bed attached. The bed was comfortable and... More

We were disappointed with this hotel. It was supposed to be four star, but it didn't live up to that rating. The rooms smelt of smoke, the lift was slow, the beds very hard and breakfasts very poor. The one good thing was their downstairs lounge area. It was handy to some good reasonably priced restaurants and a 15 minute... More

Ok, so i'll keep this short. We stayed in the magnificent for 5 nights over the Chinese New Year holidays in February of this year, during a time when hotel prices very quickly inflate - especially those in a prime location such as the Magnificent. So from reading other's reviews of this place, it seems apparent that people are very... More

The hotel can be a little difficult to find if you follow the instructions from the Internet. However when you arrive the hotel is well equipped and the inclusive breakfast is very well received. The rooms are spacious and clean, with certain floors designated as non smoking. There are many local food outlets close by and the Shanghai metro is... More

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighborhood Profile
Xintiandi
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
