4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Was there on an official trip for 2 weeks, good confortable stay. Its truly a 5-star luxury hotel. The in-house dining and resturants little over priced, I am told this area is expensive than other areas in shanghai.... couple of food joints and shopping mall in walking distance. there is a shopping mall right behing the hotel with food court etc..

Fantastic location beside the Jiang Temple, and beside Line 2 subway station. One block from West Nanjing Road where you can find Issomo Restaurant just several blocks away. Fantastic Italian restaurant. Other great restaurants just down the road also, all in walking distance (such as Dr. Wine). Staff is very helpful and friendly. The standard room is more than satisfactory and would not spend the extra $100.00 per night for the Swiss Advantage next time I go. Probably my favourite hotel and location in Shanghai after going there for 13 years. Did not discover this hotel until a year and a half ago. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Will return to stay at this hotel when I return in October 2013. Great value for the money.

This is an elegant hotel just off Nanjing Road. It felt very quiet and away from the noise and busyness of Shanghai. Food was good, great breakfast, although service in the breakfast room was very poor. Room service food was great and much better staff attitude than restaurant.

The Swissotel Grand Shanghai is conveniently located in the Jing'an District close to the Metro, shopping, and the Jing'an Buddist Temple. Restaurants are within an easy walk and a pharmacy is right across the street.
The rooms are beautiful with contemporary design, with comfortable furnishings and with state-of-the-art technology. It is easy to stay in the rooms - each has lots of space and comes with an espresso machine and coffee/tea maker. The bathrooms are well designed also. I will recommend the Swissotel to anyone traveling to Shanghai. Jing'an is a lovely area in which to spend time.
Staff is friendly and helpful. The Swiss Executive Club Lounge provides a substantial breakfast, lunch and evening snacks.
