“Penta Lounge”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The Lounge at the Penta is extremely good.

Great location adjacent to the Line 2 Zhongshan Park Subway station.

Wonderful service as the staff is very pleasant and helpful not only with food and beverages but also assisting with any information regarding sights and things to do in Shanghai.

The atmosphere is conducive to business conversation as well as relaxing after a long day.

This hotel is fine. There is nothing wrong with it, very clean, efficient staff, modern looking. However, apart from the location, nothing exceptional either. It's a big pricey IMO... but then again you are staying right upstairs from exit 5 of Zhongshan Park Metro Station, which in on line two. This station is convenient for getting around the city and I can recommend it for tourists or business travelers who want to get around easily

The Pentalounge on the first floor is a great place to go and relax, have a drink in the evening or enjoy the Sunday brunch. Brunch is really pretty reasonably priced for a buffet, but don't expect a lavish spread, just juices, cereal, fruit, simple meats, pancakes, etc. There is a nice park that is being extensively renovated right across the street, and there are tons of fantastic shopping options in the immediate area, including some upscale mega malls.

This area is iffy for English speakers once you leave the hotel.

You can't ask for more than the combination of 1) metro close, 2) 85 Degrees and lots of food/ restaurants nearby, 3) fabulous service, 4) outstanding breakfast with great variety and a really nice feel when you walk in with the music, layout of the hotel and extra amenities like bikes to use. I've been back to the hotel twice in two months coming from Los Angeles and really like this place. The rooms are comfortable, not large. It is a tremendous value and highly recommended for someone with discerning taste. I will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ride the bikes to places like Jiang An Temple and nearby shops, the local farmers market, and Yang...

A bit dissappointed with the Hotel after seeing and staying at the place for 5 nights. From the reviews you see it as a 5 star or 4 star hotel on trip advisor but it is a 3 star place and its a budget hotel, very basic except a very good breakfast, that is the best I have had ever in China. Its clean hotel, but staff will not help you with much, except check you in or out and get payment from you. It is a hotel geared for people in the teens or twenties. Location is great for sure, as lots hotels and fast food joints around Hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the higher floors.

Penta Hotel gives me valuable and impressive experience!

I really enjoyed my stays in Penta hotel during my frequent trip to Shanghai. It is conveniently located so it doesn’t take me so long to travel around.
The hotel interior and the lounge management staff, both make you feel satisfied and calm like being at home. Staff here is helpful and sincere to customers. They usually wear warm smile and provide reliable and efficient service.

The rooms here can successfully create a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere so when I finish my whole day work, I couldn’t wait to lie on bed immediately.

Room Tip: Some rooms have special printed wall. You may like the design. Just have a try!

We spent one night here, and it was quite nice. The staff were friendly, the room was clean & quite comfortable (especially the beds!). The wifi worked well. The breakfast buffet had a nice variety of options (starting at 6AM). Quite close to exit 5 of the line 2 metro station Zhongshan Park.

Every time I go for business trip In shanghai , I always stay in Penta or Mayfair. The feeling of coming back home is obvious immediately when I open the doors to the Penta reception desk. Reception is welcoming, rates are appropriate, room are tidy, breakfast is excellent and cafe deals are second to none.

Room Tip: Rooms ending with 26/27/28 are bigger
