“Fantastic hotel but best for business or layover due to location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Outstanding staff. Beautiful hotel with large well appointed rooms. Fantastic shower, massive tub and flat screen in bath! Comfy bed and very reasonable room service prices. Food was good. Free shuttle to airport takes 15 mins. Not much in the area and not close to central shanghai. Best used for a layover or stay the night before your flight. Booked on agoda for $82 CAN which is amazing value. One downside is no wifi in rooms but it is available in the lobby. Great cappuccino in lobby bar! Recommended!

stopped here on my last night before leaving China - a real 5 star hotel the room and the facilities were out of this world, with pool and gym and absolute luxury in the room - glass walled ensuite with privacy blinds. The hotel is about 9 -10 km from the airport withh a shuttle bus in the day time - I was flying out at 7 so took a taxi but beware the only time I was "seen off" by a chinese taxi driver took a very circuitous route did 30k instead of the 10 expected and cost 150 yuan rather thannthe expected 60 - 70 yuan. I gave him 200 yuan and saw him drive iinto the distance when waiting for my change!

Room Tip: Superior room for two of us £60.00 - great price - agree a price for the airport taxi before gettin...

This is a big Hotel close to PVG in a very rural area, all taxi drivers had to call the front desk for directions. SH center is about an hour away, the airport like 20 minutes. Rooms are great, very modern. Food (breakfast) is of limited choice and only almost fresh stuff. People are very friendly and helpful.

Location: Good - close to airport. Bad - far from Shanghai center but if matters you wouldn't stay here. Not close to nearby stores.

Lobby: Nice but with with traces of local mismatch decor.

Room: Surprisingly excellent. Better than many five stars in the city. Modern. New (2012). Clean. Beautiful natural stone in Bathroom. Very quiet.

This hotel is amazing! It is near the Pudong airport. Very convinient.
The room is really beautiful and modern. Ask for a executive room and enjoy a great service and confortable place.
They have spa service, very nice but not cheap.
Internet by cale in the room.
They have free shuttle to the airport.
I loved it!

Close to the airport very good hotel beautiful new room (I was in executive) and bathroom equipped with bath and shower. Price is attractive. Wanted to take shuttle to the airport but only 2 till 10AM and not convenient so need to take taxi. Breakfast is more dedicated to Chinese food than really international but you will find orange juice coffee eggs and sausages fruits. I have really enjoyed that stay in a quite situation.

After spending a couple of days in a downtown hotel and knowing that my departing flight from Pudong was too early, I decided to move to a Hotel close to the Airport and I chose this Hotel.
The hotel is 10 min by car from the International Terminal. It's an spectacular hotel but located in the middle of nowhere, you can't believe that the hotel is there until you arrive and see it. It's a perfect hotel for an early departure flight.

The hotel is spectacular, Rooms are equiped with the best technology and facilities...a wonderful bathroom, a magnificent bed..oh you have to see it to believe it. In addition the Staff is superb, not totally fluent in english but they really do their best effort to help you and satisfy your needs, very good people!

The only precautionary note is its location, it's not easy to find it, so you need to have the address in chinesse and to be sure that your taxi driver knows how to reach it. Believe me, this hotel is a Hidden Gem
