Lee Gardens Hotel Shanghai
Ranked #148 of 5,111 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed June 13, 2011

[1] Guestrooms: The bed was so comfortable! It was VERY easy to fall asleep in them. The blankets and sheets were perfect. I think by far they had the most comfortable beds in any Chinese hotel I've ever slept in. The rooms were quite large by China standards. There are two single beds (although they looked much larger than single beds), one sofa, a walk-in closet and a large desk and a flat screen television, which had the most English channels from all of Chinese hotels I've stayed. All in all, the rooms were very nice and 100% comfortable.

[2] Restrooms: The bathrooms were spotlessly clean, and were stuffed with all the amenities you could possibly need. No complains in this area.

[3] Breakfast buffet and restaurant: The upside to this hotel is that they change up the breakfast buffet selection every day. Do not expect a totally different selection, but at least they make the effort to throw in new stuff every day. The cook in the egg station doesn't understand English so if you're going to stay there, research on the Mandarin translation of whatever it is you want, may it be scrambled, omelette, boiled, etc. It will really help you a lot! Also, when they say breakfast ends at 10am, it means all the food will be packed up by 10am. So coming on time is a must. We also had dinner in the restaurant. If I were you, don't do it. The prices are high and the taste quality is subpar. Plus it is difficult to talk straight with the waiting staff. They got our orders wrong. Opt to go elsewhere. It's not worth it.

[4] Accessibility: The hotel is a one-minute walk away from the entrance to the Dong'An Station, so it is definitely accessible! The metro will take you anywhere! From Dong'An to People's Square will cost RMB4 and will probably take 15-20 minutes with all the walking. I think, in addition to the wonderful guestrooms, the proximity to the subway station is one of the hotel's greatest assets.

[5] Area: The area around the hotel is quiet and not so busy, although in the morning I was woken up by the sound of honking cars. Quite normal in Shanghai. If you don't want to be disturbed in the morning though, ask for the backside and not the streetside. There is a convenience store called Family Mart beside the hotel, as well as a few restaurants. Try the bread and milk tea in Cafe 85 (after the metro entrance). They have a huge selection of all different types of bread and cakes.

[6] Service: You'll meet some really accommodating staff members, and some cranky ones. Most of them have little grasp of English, so bring a Mandarin phrasebook. It pays off to greet them in Mandarin. Even "Ni hao" and "Xie xie" they appreciate. There is a currency exchange service in the morning, but time it correctly because sometimes they run out of money. They also allow you to leave your luggage after check-out if your flight is at night. All in all, the service was good.

This 5 star hotel had a good price at the time of booking so value for money was ok. If they're charging 5 star prices, I'd question it's worth. They had non-smoking floors and every so often someone would be smoking in the hall. The air cond unit is right on your balcony, so you can hear the humming of the machine at night. I had to ask for an iron and board, and they issued me with a "loan notice" whereby i had to call roomservice once i'd finished using it. What 5 star hotel makes you borrow an iron? The aesthetics of the room were 5 star and adapters were in the room, so they are positives. The breakfast staff had limited english but the buffet catered to westerners as well as locals. Note no cold soy milk for cereal (only hot soymilk). WIFI for free in the foyer. Pool was suppose to be in the basement but it was closed and i could not find it.

Stayed 4 nights in the hotel and was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and bathroom although the entrance of the hotel didn't look too impressive.
Though there was a hospital across the hotel, it wasn't an issue .
the beddings were comfortable and breakfast had a good spread of western and asian dishes.
The staff were helpful though the speed of check in needs improvement.
The convenience of the subway next to the hotel is definitely a plus as travelling by subway is cheap and a quick way to travel around shanghai.
It was also very close to the site of the World Expo.
Would certainly come back again .
