Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

(-) 1)you need 30 minutes to go to Nanjiang's road; and 60 minutes to go to airport.
2) the lobby don't have convenience chair/sofa for sitting, but they have if you buy drink or food. 3) they don't have wifi in the room, even in public area you need to pay.4) almost the staff's hotel in breakfast area can't speak English even for simple conversation, it difficult for me to order or ask something.

(+). Nothing!

The Baolong Hotel (Grand Mecure Hotel) in Shanghai was clean, modern and comfortable. The rooms were a generous size, well maintained and clean. It had all the standard amenities needed for the traveller. It had a beautiful lobby but not too many places to sit and rest without having to buy a drink or coffee. Service at the front desk and concierge staff were quite indifferent to downright rude - definitely lacked customer service. It is not located in the heart of Shanghai, therefore not a lot to do in the vicinity while waiting for our ride to the airport. Breakfast was good with a good selection of international dishes. I would hesitate staying here again.

This hotel,is out of the city centre and requires a taxi to get anywhere. About 20 minutes to Nanjing Road and about 35yuan, or AU$6. Some staff were good, Kelly LI was very nice and loved to talk English and get it right. What a lovely girl however some not so good. Some on the concierge really had no idea and didnt seem to care one way or the other the same on the main desk. As an Accor member we expect a little more after paying and using Accor for so long. No wifi in rooms was also a. It unexpected and we were charged when we had to go the the lobby to get connected. What the??? Also no swim without a cap?? Cost 20 yuan but .......rooms very larger, buffet good, beer cold, wine great although the red was chilled. Overall not a bad choice as it could be worse.

Unless you have business in the neighborhood, there plenty of other (and much better) hotels closer to the centre. The Grand Mercure is pretty good if you ignore the location: nice rooms, good service, good food. You have to pay additional for most amenities (eg swimming pool etc), which surprised me a little. Same with Internet, although there is a free (and unpublicized) wifi in the main atrium - sit down for a yoghurt drink on the couch with your iPad, and you'll feel quite relaxed ;) But to be honest, it is a good 15 min walk to the nearest subway stop nd then about 15-20 min to the centre, so a hotel would have to be great for me to ignore that handicap - and the Grand Mercure isn't great, it's just good.
