“Fabulous service, great rooms and a must stay if in Pudong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

from the minute you enter this hotel, the look, the feel, the genuine and perfect service, you wont want to stay anywhere else in Pudong. The rooms are large, spacious and very light with the floor to ceiling windows. The Japanese restaurant here is also a must as the food is to die for from the great chef and the lobby has a fantastic luxurious feel to it.
Thanks to all for looking after me and see you again next year

Room Tip: if you can, the suites are a must with even a guest bathroom.

Having visited Shanghai quite a few times, I recently stayed at the Jumeirah Himalayas hotel in Shanghai as I was there for the Mobile Aisa Expo in June. It was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever experienced. The staff were more than accomodating and the service was second to none.

The facilities were great, the gym is really well equipped and they offer a complimentry pilates class. There is a wide selection of food to chose from as well as fantastic breakfast.

The style of the hotel is modern with a Chinese twist. The rooms are big and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The staff are always polite, greeting you and offering to help.

I could not recomend it more, amazing hotel !

I was in China for business back in April and this was the conference hotel. Beautiful, austere, modern, efficient, friendly, elegant. Best place I've stayed at. Terrific location on top of a subway stop that allowed me to visit anyplace in Shanghai. The breakfast and dinner buffets are to die for. When I visit China again I will stay here again. Though tipping is not generally recognized in China, you'll want to tip here. Superb staff. This spa is other worldly. I almost expected to see Sean Connery working out next to me. I imagine my buff body probably intimidated him though.

Room Tip: I imagine all rooms are elegant. Higher up of course is always the best view.

I recently stayed at the Jumeirah Himalayas hotel in Shanghai and I have to say it's the one of the best hotel experiences I have had, not just in Shanghai, but in the world. Their attention to details is second to none, their customer service is exceptional and everyone is treated like a VIP guest!

The hotel in Shanghai is authentically Chinese inside, capturing the cultural beauty of the region. Ask someone about the ancient pergola in the middle of the lobby and who it belonged to and also ask the meaning of the tibetan scripture written high around the walls of the lobby.

The staff are very welcoming, gretting at the entrance all day, every day and ensuring you are well looked after. Even a drink in the bar has been well thought out, with world renowned drinks available and complimentary snacks as you are seated.

As I said, one of the best hotel experiences in the world! Highly recommended.

Trevor McLachlan

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room for the best views!

Stayed in the hotel for ten nights for a work event so can't comment on value for money but I can say that the service and rooms were an excellent standard!
The staff couldn't do more for me...very friendly and the personal touches in the room were great!
Also loved the breakfast buffet :)

Its a classy hotel and ideally located near a convention center.

Location is very beautiful. Rooms are very good, and ambience is very good.

GYM is very good. There is a good Indian restaurant near hotel.

Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai is perfectly placed for business and leisure.

Metro line 7 is accessed directly from the basement of the Himalayas Centre, allowing easy citywide connections.

Construction of the Himalayas Centre started in 2006 under the direction of world-renowned architect Arata Isozaki, who also created the Barcelona Olympic Stadium and Los Angeles MoMA. Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel opened in March 2011. Inspired by Chinese cultural elements and traditional feng shui principles, architect Arata Isozaki designed the landmark Himalayas Center, where Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel is located. A three-dimensional Urban Forest comprising dramatically sculpted columns defines the central section of the Himalayas Centre. It also carries an important loading capacity function and provides an arresting entrance to the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel. Tien Shu Patterned Walls Wrapped around the base of the two towers presents a conceptual interpretation of ancient Chinese characters from the Tien Shu by Cang Jie. Special windows have also been custom made to subtly insert between the characters allowing light to flood the hotel interiors. The Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel tower is constructed in the form of the Yu Cong, an ancient Chinese ritual object formed from an outer square representing earth, and inner circle representing heaven. The cylindrical atrium stretches 14 levels through the centre of the tower. ... more   less
