Xijiao State Guest Hotel
Ranked #185 of 5,112 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The main attraction of this 5 star hotel is not the hotel or its reataurants, but its location. It lies in a beautiful park in the middle of Shanghai, in the Gubei area.
The park is an oasis in a 20 million people urban agglomeration. The perimeter of the park is about 4 km. Inside the wall you have a water system with a circular canal and a nicely sized lake, and walking paths for a few kilometers through a botanical garden with pleasant greenery. You will meet people jogging or walking, some are fishing or doing qigong. There will be wedding parties, if lucky with the weather, then outside. Mostly you will not find the park crowded, except at the designated party areas.
One weakness is that the water system has a design flaw. There is not enough movement in the canals and the water tends to get filthy fairly soon, which leads to disturbances because of clean up work.
Despite that, this is the best option to catch fresh air in the city unless you go golfing... but the golf courses are mostly further outside town.

My first trip to Shangai on business and this was recommended as a relaxing place to stay after a long journey.
The name "Guest House" conjours up an image in the UK of a seaside B+B but this was 4/5 star luxury all the way.
Room was large, luxurious with a great bathroom and comfy bed. Free wireless in-room.
Check in and out all very smooth with friendly throughout. Breakfast was good with at least a few western options.
Very extensive grounds with paths through a park and with lakes and gardens (wedding venue also). Did not use any of the Gym or Spa facilities that were on the same site.

I have been to Shanghai several times, but this was the most wonderful place with beautiful and peaceful surroundings. Spacious room and bathroom. Very clean, although was an unpleasant smell in the room.

Breakfast was excellent as well the lunch which was delicious and plentiful.
I just regret that I have stayed only for 3 nights, would love to stay again.
Great hotel with English speaking staff. Impeccable service!!!

We found the Xijiao a peaceful haven of 5 star luxury in Shanghai. The hotel and the service we received was faultless and the rooms were some of the best that we found on a tour around China.

The best feature was the extensive gardens around the hotel. These are well laid out with several clearly marked walks around the lakes. A short distance away from the centre of Shanghai, however it felt like a different world.
