“Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

The Hotel is located very centrally - making it easy to walk to many great destinations and the Metro is also just a few steps away.
Hotel staff is friendly, breakfast is great, rooms are decent only slight downside is the rather slow wifi connection.

I always stay in this hotel whenever I'm in shanghai. Great location right on People Square and Nanjing Road, beautiful view from the restaurant at the top floor, extensive breakfast buffet... All at a great price!

First of all, the location is great.. walking distance from most of shanghai highlights.
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during September and enjoyed every minute. The staff are very nice, the room are modern and very convenient. Don't miss the restaurant at the top floor - unforgettable city view as the floor is swirling.

We stayed here for Chinese New Year and were not disappointed. Our rooms were wonderful, the pool was great, the location excellent. This was a lot more expensive than places we normally stay at but we decided to splurge for a holiday and we were not disappointed! One negative - the room was very hot and it was impossible to turn down the temperature.

Perfect location - At the top of People's Square, across from the Metro station, on Nanjing Rd getting you to Nanjing walking road in minutes. Xintiandi is a quick walk or one subway stop. Around the corner you have some of the best dumplings in town at Jia Jia and straight across the street at Yang's.
Hospitable and courteous staff at all times.
Excellent pool/spa/gym.
Upgraded to 38th floor. I read reviews of people being unhappy with the ventilation system - nonsense. It worked perfectly.
I did not get to try the buffet or restaurants, as I ate out all the time.
This hotel won't disappoint. Get you rself a room, a 3 day metro card pass, and enjoy Shanghai.

Room Tip: Go high for the view. Get the room with the work desk. It's very comfortable with a huge bathroo...

We had dinner in the revolving restaurant. The views are spectacular, the service very nice. But the Italian food we had was very poor quality, nothing tasted original, all dishes had the same taste, very smal portions on top. Next time, go to the bar one level higher if you want to enjoy the views and avoid this restaurant!

Dear Frank v,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on tripadvisor with regards to your recent stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel Shanghai New World. I have noted your comment about the Italian food at the revolving restaurant, the food is not authentic Italian rather an Italian fusion as mentioned on the menu, I am sorry to hear that you did not like the food. I look forward to welcoming you back should your travels bring you back to Shanghai.
