“A good room with a good breakfast”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

The rooms are comfortable but average size. The hotel itself is very nice. The restaurant serves a great breakfast buffet with many choices. Anything from cereal and croissants to rib tips and french toast. The food is very good but it is a little difficult to get refills on your drink. The check-in was a little slower than most hotels but check-out was fine and their car service was very friendly.

The Renaissance Shanghai Yangtze hotel in Shanghai is a good hotel with excellent service and a good choice of food and drinks. It is located in the Shanghai Changning business district, with easy access to connections to the rest of the city. Distance from Pudong airport is about 45 minutes to 1.5 hour by taxi, depending on traffic.

Arrival was welcoming and desk service was swift and to the point. In good English and without problems. The lobby is a spacious, marbled entrance with a lounge and extends into the breakfast buffet area. behind the lounge are the different restaurants. Its layout is easy to understand.

Rooms are typical for this type of hotel: entrance with closet, bathroom with all amenities and a bedroom with desk, TV and a chair. Beds are very good. All is clean: good housekeeping. Rooms seem to be all fairly similar. Added touch is the wall connector box to connect a dvd player or laptop to the television. Wi-fi Internet is fast and free, but sometimes switches from guest to public mode, so that connection gets lost.

All amenities are included: shoeshine, iron, slippers, bathrobe, safe, minibar, airco (windows cannot be opened), vanity set, soap and shampoo. Bathroom has bath and shower with curtains. Ample space to move. Water pressure and temperature are constant. All is clean. Rooms are soundproof.

Breakfast is good. Much to choose from, in a buffet style, with cooks to prepare eggs as you like. It has a wide selection of warm, cold, Western and Asian foods. Orange juice and coffee are served, water, additional juice and tea are also available. Chairs are very low compared to the tables. Atmosphere is good. Japanese restaurant serves excellent food. Western restaurant is also good, albeit that sometimes orders get mixed up. Buffet restaurant (breakfast area) is good and serves a wide range of dishes. Lounge has singers, music or the occasional DJ. It has a lounge-jazz affinity. A music/cocktail bar is found behind closed doors, where hotel bands play popular songs.

Concierge is friendly and offers good service. He will help with getting you cards to get around when using taxi's. Upon request, he will write addresses or places for cab drivers to understand where you want to go.

Excellent service by all staff. Most speak English, some with some difficulty, but never a problem. Very friendly, correct and service minded.

I would stay here again.

Stayed in this hotel a few months ago for two weeks for work. Convenient location to a subway station in the park across the street, and lots of good Japanese food in the neighborhood. Stay in a club level room if possible, the club lounge was nice and offered lots of good snacks and drinks daily. Breakfast has more offerings in the lobby restaurant than the lounge though.

I had just been returned from a 5-day-4-Nights trip to Shanghai, for the purpose of attending a seminar. The hotel is located in a nce part of the city. There is a nice park just within walking distance from the hotel. There is also a group of little shops selling dresses, not faraway from the hotel. There are 2 mini markets, Family Mart and Lawson, all within walking distance of the hotel, as well as a Starbucks. The hotel staff is courteous, although not everyone can communicate in English. Breakfast is generous and delicious, not so much the room service though. But the bathroom is super clean, the bed linens are crispy white. I enjoyed the King Size bed, with its downs pillows and downs cover. Two MRT stations are within walking distance, but taxicabs are not that expensive either (only about RMB 40 maximum, depending on the traffic, one way) and it takes about 30-40 minutes to get to Nanjng Road (the city centre) . It takes about 45 minutes-1 hour to get to the hotel from Pudong airport. From the airport it costs RMB 180-200 max, depending on the traffic, . However, make sure you bring info cards from the hotel, otherwise it may be a struggle if you try to explain to the taxi drivers as to where are you going! The Indoor swimming pool opens till 11:00 PM, the pool is heated, I found it a very delightful way to reduce stress and tiredness. i recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in a quiet and leafy area of Shanghai.

The cleanliness, staff and food were all top notch at this hotel. The location has many Japanese restaurants. For Chinese food, the hotel is a good choice. Though I would have preferred being closer to the Bund and chinese restaurants,the atmosphere and service there balanced those drawbacks.

Room Tip: the upper floors facing the back have a view of the park..

Dear guest,
Thank you for your appreciation even though we are not your first choice as far as hotel location is concerned. Located in Hongqiao area makes our hotel a bit away from city center. However, there are metro station and Yan'an High Way nearby connecting most city attractions, it is convenient for your business or leisure trip.
Look forward to welcome you back!

Stayed here for 3 nights as part of an organised tour to China. The hotel is in the business district. There's a subway station nearby which you access via a beautiful park. Taxi to the Bund is approx 26 RMB. The hotel has a large lobby with bar, cafe and restaurant. The bar has live music most nights but drinks prices are expensive. There is free WiFi in the lobby. Breakfast was really good, buffet with a variety of options. Our room was on the 7th floor. Really nice room, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful.

There's a number of restaurants near the hotel

Stayed here for two nights in November as part of a tour package. The rooms were very comfortable and the beds provided a good night's sleep.

The buffet breakfast (included with our tour) was excellent: a large variety between Western type and Asian foods.

The hotel was conveniently located across from a park. Shopping, stores and restaurants were within a five minute walk. The subway station is a ten minute walk from the hotel.
