“A very good experience overall.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

For the price offered, I took the gamble on location. It's a 15 minute walk to any Metro Station, but the hotel makes up for that shortcoming with the rooms.
Great bedding, mattress and pillows, which is not always a given in China in this category.
Housekeeping was very much on top of issues.
Great Japanese and Korean restaurant inside the hotel, their own coffee shop should not be your first choice.
Concierges speak excellent English and are very helpful with all issues.

I'd stay here again.

The room was generally well equipped and clean but the bed was very hard. It wasn't very near the metro either. Most taxi drivers were also not keen to drive back to Tong Mao Hotel from other areas, probably because they were unlikely to get passengers back. The staff was generally polite and responsive. Restaurant food were expensive and unpalatable. The spa there was fantastic though.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights during September. We pick this hotel because it is just 5 minutes walk to our Shanghai Office. The bedroom is nice, complimentary drinking water is provided every day, towel, toothbrush, soap, shapoo, hair dryer, personal safe, kettle etc all are provided, for iron and iron board is on request basis (it only took the house keeping few minutes to sent to our room). They have gym and pool on level 11 if I am not wrong which open until 10pm. (There are lots of TV channels)

Breakfast is nice, combination of international and traditional Chinese breakfast, a lot of choices. Check in and check out is fast. 3 restaurants in the hotel which are North Korean food, Japanese food and a Chinese food to choose from. We tried the North Korean food which is ok. Or you can just take a taxi from hotel to a nearby mall in pudong (recommend:上海第一八佰伴 address: 501号 Zhangyang Road Pudong (addres in chinese:浦东新区张杨路501号) only cost you RMB14/trip. There are plenty of restaurant and departmental store.

Location: Only 15 Minutes walk from the subway station (Century Ave – 世纪大道), this station can connect to metro line 2,4,6 and 9.

Excellent hotel.
Bathroom is very nice, room is large, bed is comfortable, hall ways are nice and big, elevator is fast, breakfast is excellent for a Chinese hotel with international and Chinese food, stuff very polite, but not all speak English. Well located, 15 min walk from the subway station (Century Ave), bar, restaurant, gym, spa, swimming pool, very good. I recommend this hotel if you are staying in Shanghai.

Room Tip: Room 1111 - good enough

The hotel is quite nice. Rooms are modern , big and very good. Modern and clean bathroom like other modern 4 star hotel. Breakfast is also ok. But the area is very quite with no restaurant, shops or malls nearby which may be little boring in the evening. However if you have work in Pudong area then it is convenient.

Good location in the heart of the city, close to exhibition centre and main business areas, shopping areas. A little old property therefore everything has a slight old look and feel- breakfast spread is ok. but central location makes it suitable for business travellers.

As a previous reviewer stated, this is a stated-owned hotel and therefore not as plush nor as service-oriented for a business traveler as might be expected. However that also means that your wallet and naivety are not constantly targeted being a foreigner,

For instance a gem at the hotel is the spa, where you can get an excellent 90 minute massage for under CNY 200! None of the plush hotels I stayed at had anywhere near as good a massage service (in fact I was constantly haggled to upgrade the massage I selected to more expensive treatments, which were then very unprofessionally carried out), and tended to charge 4-5 times more.

If you can do without the fake lip-service of the more westerner-oriented hotels then this is worth a try.
