“Excellent hotel but expensive bar!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

This was an amazing hotel that was opulent and comfortable. Bedrooms were spacious with a deep bath in the ensuite - which was bliss after a long flight to get there. Hotel was central to the city with most shops within walking distance. Staff friendly and helpful and suitcases were in our room before we even got there! The only issue was the price of drinks at the bar which were much more expensive than any of the other equivalent hotels we stayed in during our tour of China so bear that in mind before ordering!

We spent three nights in the Jin Jiang Hotel from 15th - 18th March 2014. We were very impressed with our room which catered for all our needs. The room was spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable. The house keeping staff were amazing. The pool at the leisure centre was fab and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast offered a great selection and you never left hungry. The hotel is in an amazing location and there is a metro station just 400 yards from the hotel. The only downsides we had were no free Wi-fi in the room and the air conditioning was not working properly but neither of these spoiled our holiday in any way. The staff although they have limited English, which is to be expected as you are in China, are very helpful and try their best to communicate, we had no issues whatsoever. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Jin Jiang and would recommend this hotel.

Just got back from a two week stay in shanghai at the Jin Jiang!
I enjoyed my stay very much!
Yes, the hotel is very old so there are bound to be a few cracks and stains but that doesn't make it dirty!
The staff was wonderful! I do not speak Chinese and most of the staff does not speak fluent English but they all did their best to see that I was taken care of, from the second I arrived to the moment I left!
The continental breakfast was anything but continental! They had anything you could imagine, including an omelet station and any kind of fruit or bread or pastry you could imagine!
The beds were comfy and I could honestly say that I slept like a baby for two whole weeks-it was great!

I will most definitely be returning to the Jin Jiang, whether it be for work or for pleasure!

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights first week in November 2013, as part of a tour group. Fantastic Chinese family style "welcome" lunch provided. Breakfast buffet was good, but not over the top. Was able to get free WiFi in lobby only in the building away from the main building where we stayed. It was warm and stuffy in the rooms, but lobby had air conditioning on as the temps outside were unseasonably warm. We asked for air conditioning to be turned on upon our arrival, our tour guide also asked, and it never happened. It was hard to sleep because it was so hot and stuffy in the room. There were mosquitos the size of a nickel outside and in the lobby, and many of us on our tour, including myself, were bitten. We asked the second day for the air to be turned on and they said they would "try to do something". When we returned to our rooms for the evening after touring all day in warm weather, we found the air to be on in the lobby, but not in our rooms. We asked AGAIN, and they said we just needed to open the windows (no screens) for fresh air at night. We could not do that because of the mosquitos. Much to my surprise, when we returned from dinner the second night, hotel staff had come to our room and opened the window, and that was their solution to turning the air conditioning on. We then had a stuffy room with a little fresh air and mosquitos in our room. This was not a good way to start out our two week tour of China. We spent two nights in a hot, stuffy room and did not sleep well either night. I also did not think there was anything special about the location of the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel because of the poor service provided to Western guests on tour. The hotel would be OK if the weather did not require air conditioning, but I still think I would prefer to stay in another location in the city where more things were going on. This was in a quiet area geared more toward the business traveler.

I reserved via Agoda and stayed for 2 nights. The allocated room at Cathay Building was pretty spacious and better than expectation. Hotel is about 5min walk to nearest station. Taxi drivers were familiar with the hotel so I didn't have much issues returning to the hotel. Housekeeping service was prompt but front desk service was mediocre and nothing much to shout about. One thing a bit strange was I didn't understand why houskeeping will place the laundry "organiser", that was hanging in the wardrobe, on the bed during evening turn down service. Also as there were a few buildings within the hotel compound and some construction works going on, I got lost when I wanted to get to the main street on my first night. Anyway, it was overall a pleasant stay.

I had a reservation for this hotel to stay at the Cathay Building. On arrival i was informed the hotel was full i was send to the other building- Grosvenor house. Na olg building with no front desk, just a table with na employee that speaks only chinese. My reservation was specifically for a NON smoking room. I was send to a old room, dirty carpet, bad bathroom and smelling cigarettes. I tried to talk to the lady at the lobby table but was impossible. I went to the Cathay buildind but I was informed the hotel was full for that night. I had to sleep the first night in this terrible room and i was moved to the Cathay building the next morning. A terrible night. I did not have a reservation, the hotel was already paied! At tha Cathay building everything was diferente. A very good room, modern, clean and very comfortable. Be careful with your reservation!

Room Tip: Be sure about the building you are suppose to stay!

We began our first visit to China with a 5 night stay at the Jin Jiang Hotel, Cathay Gardens building. Lovely choice and we felt especially lucky due to the location in the fashionable French Quarter. Our room was clean, elegant and very comfortable. A/C worked perfectly and the bathroom was large, beautiful and well maintained.

Daily breakfast buffet was a wonderful way to start our busy days, featuring fresh fruit, western breakfast choices and a delicious array of Asian treats. We never left hungry!

Staff was friendly but not extremely fluent in English; still, all our needs were met. The lobby offers two comfy seating areas and there's a very small gift shop on site. Wifi is available for a charge in guest rooms and the business center offers for-fee services. The fitness center was closed for renovations during our stay but the location made for lovely walks, both night and day.
