“Really nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Really nice hotel convenient to Shanghai International Exhibition Centre with Hotel Bus to Expo in morning. Nice breakfast with mixed selection of cold & hot European style and Chinese/Japanese mix as well. The reception desk was always helpful and the Conceige/Tour desk really had good English and great knowledge over the City even booking our return Hispeed Train Tickets to Haining. If you want to try a mix of foods there are 2 centres nearby or better take the Shanghai Metro to Lu Jia Zui about 4 stops from hotel Century Park Station and go to Super Brand Centre (50 + restaurants and many more shops) also short walk to see the Bund from the Pudong side - magnificant at night. Tip buy a Public Transport Card (stored value for Rmb 100.00) and use the Shanghai Metro to explore parts of the city

Good little boutique hotel, with its best feature being the train station it literally is above! Great to get out and about Shanghai quickly. Also, being right across the park is a nice escape from the general business that China can be from time to time.
Room I was in was getting a little dated but it was clean and completely functional. If you can get a corner room you'll get a great 270 view on the balcony and a nice big bathroom. Breakfast is fine. Didn't try lunch or dinner at the hotel, but why would you with Shanghai to explore.

Room Tip: Fairly obvious, but the view over the gardens is superb.

I spent four nights in Yue Shanghai hotel visiting Mobil Asia Expo.
First of all I liked the excellent location: 10 minutes walking distance to the Expo, just above the metro station (line 2), and near to the beautiful Century Park.
The buffet breakfast was rich (Eastern and Western food), and the staff was friendly. I was happy with my clean room as well, it was not too big not too small.

I would recommend this hotel for business trips.

Stayed 2 nights (19th & 20th June 2012) recently as i was attending an exhibition at the New Shanghai International Expo Center.

Location wise, this hotel is very good. The New Century Park MRT station is just below the Hotel. From the Pudong International Airport, i took the magnetic train to the Longyang station.
It only took 10mins and 50RMB. (10RMB discount if you show your actual day air-ticket)

After which, it is only a 5mins taxis ride to the hotel. (About 14 RMB)
I booked a Yue Deluxe package but was upgraded to a suite as the rooms are full.

I must say that the design, cleaniness and comfortable bed is a big attraction.
Breakfast is a mixture of Oiental and Western.

There are no WiFi in the room, only LAN cable connection.

There are not much shops around the hotel as it is mostly residential apartments. There is a 24HR Family Mart next door and a Hypermart just across the street.

For the price i am paying, US$184 for 2 nights. I have no complaints. Very good and convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the New Century Park has a better view. when taking cab, let driver know it is at junc...

I liked much the location of the hotel. You may go to subway inside of hotel directly!...
If you be there for trade fair, it's just 10 minutes by walking. Only 5 subway stops away to like Nanjing Lu or People's Squre. You can reach also Pu Dong Int. Airport by same subway line.
Rooms are not so big even could be say small a bit but enough. Wireless is only at the loby and the bar. Cable int.possible at the rooms. English or European TV channels are insufficient.
Breakfast generally Chinese style it could be imrpove for European style also. Because, the visitors ratherly more than the Asia visitors.

Room Tip: Ask the staff possible wi-fi rooms.

Thank you for sharing your stay experience at Yue Shanghai Hotel. Regarding the bathroom drainage problem, it work properly. The defect was shower curtain did not work sufficiently to keep the water inside the bathtub, water spill out caused wet floor.
Thank you for mentioning the rain water flow inside guestroom from the balcony, we had fixed it out right away on the date of your departure.
