Kerry Hotel Pudong Shanghai
Ranked #19 of 5,146 Hotels in Shanghai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 9, 2014

I've always enjoyed Shangri La hotels (Tokyo, Taipei, etc.) and Kerry reminds me of why. Everything about the hotel is predictably excellent, and the lack of surprise is what most business people like: spacious & thoughtful room design, attentive lobby staff, clean & careful execution on all daily necessities. Unlike other hotels in China, this one doesn't seem to suffer from the rapid decay in fixtures, cleanliness, etc. It's not cheap, but it's well worth the cost.

So why is it "best" for "pure" business trip? First, it's just outside of downtown so from the Pudong airport to Kerry there is no frustrating traffic jams. Second, it's close to the electronics/semiconductor offices that I visit often (again, outside of downtown). Third, it's away from the bustle & hanky-panky of downtown, so at night, I've never had to worry about having to go out for late night drinking, LoL But the best thing is that, there is a stadium size gym, and a 25M pool. The gym is mind-bugling full of equipment for me to get totally wasted by the end of an hour work-out.

Room Tip: Corner rooms ;-)

We stayed for two nights in the Kerry Hotel, Shanghai.
Check-in was swift and we were very pleasantly surprised by the size and luxury level of the room. The little bar with stools for instance is not something one normally encounters.
The complimentary mini-bar was also a pleasant surprise.
The hotel is conveniently located outside the busy heart of the city, but relatively close to the Pudong airport, interconnected with a large shopping mall/happening place and metro stations. Opposite of the hotel is a huge park.
The hotel is very well set-up for families with a pool and adventure zone. The rooms are large enough for an extra bed and connecting rooms are offered as well (we had that option).
Breakfast buffet is huge, albeit a little unstructured. Food quality is very good and the selection is great.
Definitely a great hotel and we would not hesitate to return.

A very nice hotel to stay. There is Kerry Parkside Mall next to it and is easy to get food there. The Hotel Staffs are very helpful and always am ready to provide help to you. You will have Shuttle Bus to some company and too bad this is a one way trip service. It would be best if the Hotel can provide the Shuttle Bus to picks us back from the company.

Used hotel for business purpose (directly next to Expo area) and for leisure stay. Excellent for both purposes. Small mall adjacent to hotel offer good alternative food options.
Staff at lounge level very welcoming and helpful.

Room Tip: spacious and functional yet accommodating

Great Hotel, well above average bathroom (took my first bath in 25 years), comfortable room, free mini bar. All of these are good attributes and make the hotel worth staying at. On the down side the drinks and snacks in the bar downstairs are ridiculously expensive. A single shot Jack Daniels and Coke and a double shot of Cointreau was about 300 RMB or $50.00 Australian. Having said this, the game of "rip off the westerner" is abundant in most Chinese hotels and this one is no different. Be careful of the Free mini bar, as although there is a good variety of free items including a couple of beers, if you want it topped up you will pay through the nose and the Evian water is not free at all and also ridiculously expensive ( you can buy it around the corner for 5% of the price). Australia is the most expensive county in the world to live and China is one of the cheapest, yet the hotel still manages to charge twice to 5 times the Australian price for things. The Buffet breakfast is vast and also expensive but you can request a continental or cold breakfast and there is still plenty to choose from and much cheaper. Unfortunately we did not realise we could ask for this until the last day.
The proximity to the expo centre is very good but if you aren't going there then the location is not very good. For me, I was attending an expo so it was very handy and just a very short walk away. Because i only go there for expo's, this will be the hotel i always stay at in the future. I have stayed in others a bit cheaper but further away and overall it's better to just pay the bit extra and be right on the doorstep of the expo centre.

Stayed here for two nights.
The hotel is in Pudong near what has been previously a residential area close to the exhibition centre. Whilst, I stayed for a work meeting and I think it was great from that perspective, especially the meeting rooms and the food were fabulous. If I was coming as a tourist to Shanghai, I would look at other hotels just because this area of Pudong isn't that convenient for touristy stuff eg - bund, French concession, xintiandi etc.
I also thought it was slightly pricey at check out.
