It appears the receptionist decide which rooms you will receive. Have stayed here 4 times now and find the rooms range from very good to tiny. Same price for rooms but size differs. Protesting helps and they move you to another room; one they should have put you in the first place. Breakfast is vast- European and Eastern. Location is... More

The staff were very rude and uncooperative, including the manager. An inordinately large deposit is taken at arrival for no apparent reason. It's a nice looking hotel but there are many others in Shanghai that are similarly priced with much friendlier staff.

If you are looking for an upscale executive hotel, the Merry Hotel will fit the bill. You have everything here from executive suites, to restaurants, banquet facilities, private business meeting rooms, and more. There is a gift shop and lounge in the lobby with a very nice "Happy Hour". There is also a very nice Spa for some real high... More

We travelled Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Guilin, Yangsuo and Shanghai and had good hotels up until the Merry Hotel in Shanghai. Our guide warned us on the way from the airport that he had received numerous complaints from people about the hotel. In our 1st room (before we requested to be moved), the shower didn’t work (drip-like water pressure) and the... More

The Hotel is in a very good location to move around to other areas in Shanghai. Also to go to Pudong Trade Exhibition area by subway. It´s a good hotel for Chinese customers, but foreigners will always find something they do not like. The (Western) breakfast options are poor in quality and terrible in taste. Eat Chinese food. The gym... More

This is my second visit to this lovely hotel. My previous experience was that I had some 90 staff and students from South Australia to visit Shanghai. The hotel has been refurbished and the rooms are really comfortable with city view. I had amazing breakfast and there is plenty to enjoy the Chinese style noodles. Perhaps one day I would... More

The reception is large and stark. The rooms are better than you expect after seeing the reception, but are quite dated and the bathroom is far too dark. The a/c didn't really work, and just spat dust out. If you go in a group for a meal, don't make the mistake of ordering together! There was a drama when we... More

I probably would have given this hotel 2 stars but the location is in a great neighborhood for exploring. With several restaurants, coffee shops and small stores to buy souvenirs it's a great location. The hotel breakfast was pretty good with a fair variety of but Asian and Western dishes to choose from. The hotel itself is run down and... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
