Ibis Shanghai Yu Garden
Ranked #2,135 of 5,146 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This hotel is in the best location of Shanghai. It is next to the YU YUAN Garden. Shopping, restaurants and tourist sights are close by. The breakfast deal at the hotel makes it very convenient too. All rooms are very clean. It is a great value for the money. One annoyance is the accumulation of business cards from a variety of vendors slipped under your room door.

Location - The hotel is located about 1km from Yuyuan Metro. Please look for H&M or Zara shopping mall at Yu Garden as the building of this hotel is just opposite them.

Cleanliness - Hotel and room were very clean. Basic toiletries are provided. Mosquito attack at night but mosquito repellant is available from the housekeeper. They allow to smoke in the room but to avoid smoking on the bed.

Staff - Staff was very friendly and able to accommodate to our requests i.e. room facing the Yuyuan Garden despite our room rate was actually for city view. Receptionist able to communicate in English.

Food - We weren't tried their breakfast. However, we observed basic breakfast were provided i.e. bread, spaghetti, egg, fruits and salad.

Parking - Parking is available with minimal charges.

Room Tip: Request room at 6th floor facing Yuyuan Garden.

My husband and I enjoyed our one night stay at ibis watergate Shenzhen hotel. The only negative was the bed which was as hard as a brick. Having painful hips the staff did try to help and gave me three extra donnas to place on top of the mattress. It only helped a bit but they did go to the effort of trying to help me. Otherwise our stay was excellent.

I booked three rooms for 5 nights, one with a view on the gardens. We arrived late and were received by a yawning receptionist called Angel. She was anything but angelic. She took forever to check us in and subsequently checked us in an old room with a view of a parking lot. When I went down she came with all kind of stories (toilet is not working) until she admitted that the garden view rooms were already given away. One of our other rooms was a tiny room with a tiny window that saw into the ventilation shaft (they call it courtyard). You could hear word by word what your neighbours said. The next morning I asked again for a room with a view as I paid for this. The foreign manager of the hotel was quick to change the old room into a much nicer new room. I was about to forget the unpleasant start of our visit to Ibis.

However just now when we asked them to order a large cab we were told, again by Angel, that they only have one number of one taxi company and that this company can not provide large cabs. Angel was not willing to phone another company and arrange something as simple as a cab. I know Ibis is supposed to be basic and I am fine with that. In fact we are Accord Hotel Club members because we use their hotels, including the Ibis range, frequently. Generally the rooms are decent, clean and the service is reliable. Unfortunately, in Ibis Yu Garden Shanghai, the service given at reception is so poor that the whole experience of staying there leaves nothing but a sour memory (despite the efforts made by the manager).

The Ibis hotels are probably the best 'bang for your buck' while staying in Shanghai. They are generally very cheap (300 RMB per night), decently maintained and safe.

The Ibis hotel near Yuyuan garden is great because you are close to one of the most famous tourist attractions in Shanghai and not too far from the bund (walking distance).

The rooms were kept clean, however don't expect 5 star amenities. It does have the basics and the decor is kept simple - my only complaint is the pillows, they are always too thin so you might want to request some extras. I do remember the staff being very kind while staying here.

I was recommended here by a local & have stayed here on many occasions. It is an ideal location in Shanghai at the doorstep of Yuyuan Garden which is a must see for any visitor. It is clean, comfortable & very affordable. Couldn't ask for more for the cost so very happy indeed. Can't recommend it high enough for a 4 star standard boutique hotel.
