Stayed over for 1 night at the weekend. The hotel makes for a good weekend break from Shanghai. Nice gardens, set in a big well kept and clean park, I could almost imagine i was in the countryside! Nice green views of the hills. The nearby Sculpture Park makes for an great picnic spot for the kids, lots of activities and fun stuff.
Hotel room was large, spacious and well kept. Comfortable beds, HD TV, and nice view from the balcony.
Food in the restaurants was quite delicious, good.
Kids indoor play area is nice, simple and clean.
Poor Maintenance and untrained staff.
The hotel is a little tatty in places, some equipment is beginning to break, and the changing room showers/toilets are not so clean (toilets were actually quite smelly of urine!). Sadly this is pretty typical for many China hotels, I've been to several 5* establishments and due to poor build quality and poor ongoing maintenance they decay quicker than they should.
Staff English is poor. They had little knowledge of the area and of the events in the hotel. The outside pool bar was shut this weekend (huh... its a 3-day holiday in June, the place was packed, and they closed the pool bar!), unrelenting we called front desk from our cellphone to order drinks, it took some convincing of the rude staff on the front desk but eventually they sent a waiter with drinks. This caused quite a stir with other patrons and soon several people were calling the front desk for the same. haha.
Later in the day, I enquired at the front desk about which restaurants would be open that evening, the receptionist said the outside BBQ would be on from 5:30. Awesome. However, after we walked the 10minutes (its a big hotel) from the lobby to the garden restaurant, we arrived to find it was reserved for a private party!
Oh, and i tried renting a bicycle from the sports club, when i asked the sports center staff for a map or advise where i can ride the bike - she was at a complete loss, had no clue.
Oh, and the swimming pool locker keys are counter intuitive: blue for girls and pink for boys. That was a good joke as I found myself half-naked trying to open the locker with my wife's key.
Do not expect 5-star service from the staff, its a complete adventure. Enjoy it.
Oh, and no free wi-fi.
