This hotel is perfectly situated. It overlooks People’s Square and is right at the top of the main shopping street. A 15 minute walk gets you to The Bund. There is a metro station opposite giving you access to the whole city. It was never any problem getting a taxi from right outside the front door.
The hotel itself is not ultra-modern but not as tired as other reports had me believe. It’s not top of the tree luxury but perfectly adequate without being over the top. My room was like many business hotels I have stayed in, loads of space and the bed was huge and comfortable with loads of pillows. Everything in the room worked fine. Bathroom was also spacious and functional with a shower in the bath. The whole room was kept immaculately clean by the team.
The bar on the top floor was amazing with few across Shanghai. It was a little pricey but you have to think for the views it was probably worth it. The band was excellent and not as cheesey as others make out (although I’m told the regular band were on holiday the week we stayed there).
The revolving restaurant was a highlight, not only the views but the service and the food was top notch. There again so was the price! Ideal for a special occasion.
Breakfast was plentiful with so many different choices it was hard to know what to have. Here again the price was quite expensive although if you eat as much as we did you can get your money’s worth and skip lunch!!
All the staff were utterly charming, helpful and friendly, be it reception at the door or in the bars and restaurant.
Will definitely go back there and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone because of its location. The price we paid for the room alone was definitely good value and you don’t have to eat and drink there as there are plenty of other options nearby.
