I had a business trip to Shanghai recently, and stayed in this place for the first time. The actual hotel I stayed was Building No.7. It was a wonderful experience. The room was comfortable and spacious with a balcony. The surrounding was very nice and quiet. The building is surrounded with ponds and bamboos. There were even a pair of cranes and a pair of peacocks in the garden (do not worry, they were only interested in chasing the gardener who tried to keep the place tidy). The staff members were wonderful even including David (General Manager) from Britain who was so nice to us whenever he had time. I felt being welcome and well looked after. Wonderful place.

My boyfriend and I had a marvelous experience at the Shanghai Xijiao Guest Hotel. I was born and raised in Shanghai, but have been living in the United States for the past 15 years. With the rapid development of Shanghai, I was wondering if I could find a pleasant retreat for my boyfriend and me to enjoy during his first visit to China. The major challenge was to find, somewhere within this vast metropolis, a full-service resort with ample gardens and greenery that would also have a cozy home-like feeling. After 10 days staying at Xijiao, we can state without hesitation or reservation that Xijiao met all our expectations and, indeed, offered much more… Upon arrival at the Xijiao Hotel, we were attracted immediately to their fairytale gardens. They featured a sizable lake, with swans, ducks, and geese playing in the water. On our third morning, on our third outing to the lake, we walked through the archway and crossed the traditional Chinese winding bridge, to come upon and sit within the “lake-heart” pavilion. At that moment, all I knew of the world was peaceful scenery, a gentle breeze, and the greetings of the waterfowl. Then I heard the magic four-word question from my boyfriend, and my affirmative answer followed easily. As my fiancé said, Xijiao is and will always be our home in Shanghai. Also, it was not lost on us that on our first day alone the hotel hosted eight weddings! As a coda, we appreciated the efforts of the front desk to solve all of our problems, and in particular Mr. Bian helped us arrange our visit during a very busy time.

To begin, since Xijiao is where the Chinese government hosts its own leaders and foreign dignitaries, only by first acknowledging that it was a privilege to stay there do I presume to offer this review. As a resort, Xijiao is first class, comparing favorably with the finest resorts in Europe and North America in terms of setting, accommodations, dining, and facilities. I enjoyed the spacious grounds, smoke-free environment; and superb sports facility. Based on these features alone, Xijiao merits a 5-star plus rating. But it is much more: Xijiao is a resort like no other. Imagine, as an American, that you were to stay at Camp David outside Washington, DC (where domestic and foreign leaders are hosted in a country setting), but that Camp David were within capital itself. So it is with Xijiao. Regardless of your country, when you see the photos of other visitors – such as Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, Xi Jinping, Bush, Obama, Gorbachev, Putin – you realize that you are in place where history is made. Everywhere one finds more depth and texture than in any standard hotel. For example, the gardens offer a stunning array of trees, flowers, bonsai plants, and shrubbery in a landscape with a stream, bridges, pavilions, and a small lake. Rest assured the staff will care for you properly, and Managing Director David Burley can handle any issue. Thus, it should be clear that Xijiao is well prepared for you. The only question is whether you have prepared yourself well enough for Xijiao.

You would never believe you were in the middle of Shanghai if you stay here. The hotel is in the centre of some beautiful gardens and its quiet, serene atmosphere is understandable when you here that this is where many heads of state will stay when visiting. Obama, Bush, Putin and Queen Elizabeth have all stayed here. China`s politicians also use the facilities on a regular basis since they are many reception halls in the grounds.

I only stayed for one night for business but from my short experience, it was a vast and beautiful place. The room was vast and the bathroom was excellent. There were peacocks and cranes in the garden; I'm not a fan of wild animals in domestic area but they seem content with their environment and have limited interaction with human. Unfortunately not all staffs are able to speak english so I had a bit of difficulty in communication with them other than using sign language.
