“The Ruijin Hotel - an oasis of tranquility in Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

The Ruijin Hotel is delightful! The gardens and the ground were an oasis of tranquillity in the centre of Shanghai. I can highly recommend it. All staff were very attentive and helpful and they agreed to look after some items that we had purchased pending our return nearly 3 weeks later. The food is also excellent, both breakfast and two dinners in different restaurants.
For history buffs Party Leaders, Moa Zedong, Liu Shao Qi, Zhu De, Dong Bi Wu, Zhou En Lai stayed there and Chiang Kai-shek had it as the headquarters of the Kumingtang

Room Tip: Book into the original No1 block

We recently stayed at this lovely, old hotel and had a very enjoyable time. Big rooms (we had a suite), great breakfast, beautiful grounds, great staff and loads of history. Peaceful and pleasant.

Very nice hotel. Beautiful grounds and quiet. A patch of serenity in the midst of Shanghai. Room was spacious and comfortable.
Stayed in oe of the larger rooms - very spacious with 1 bottle of complimentary wine in the room at arrival. Internet worked well.
Stayed in one of the larger rooms. Very large bed slept me, my wife and our 3 year old daughter comfortably. Also they provided a small bed for my 5 year old son free of charge.
There is a bakery attached to the hotel, though you have to go out the gates to get to the entrance. Good place to pick up pastries for morning. Also there is a place across the street and to the left of the main entrance that sells delicious dumplings in the morning. Highly recomended - just look for the line of waiting customers.

From the moment we drove down gracious Maoming Road, as soon as we entered the front gate of the Ruijin Hotel, we fell in love with this corner of Shanghai. The beautiful, well kept grounds and the historical brick buildings were impressive. The staff was very attentive and helpful.We had a large, comfortable room in a modernized Building 3. Yes, there was still construction going on , although no noise during our 4 days, and most areas were unaffected.
The neighborhood was a find, with tree lined streets, wonderful "neighborhood" boutiques and restaurants. Two metro lines were a short walk away.

We loved the hotel, its location and the service.
Number one building is the one to stay as lots of great Chinese leaders resided here in the past
The room is very spacious for any hotel standard. The only problem is the bed.
I am Shanghainese myself but lived overseas for 20 years. I don't get used to the hard sleeper anymore. :P

Room Tip: Building one is the one to go for and ask for rooms on the first floor in the building. ( number one...

We had a wonderful experience at Ruijin, and I would recommend it highly to anyone headed to Shanghai. While the hotel was under construction, the noise never bothered us, the rooms were incredibly spacious, and the grounds were still lovely. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, going out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable. The breakfast was unbelievable - so many options, including the best bacon we've ever had anywhere in the world! We were so full every day from the extensive spread that we never needed lunch. Overall, an utter delight.
