“Large contemporary hotel - good value in Shanghai”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

I've stayed at the Longement several times and overall find it good value for money in Shanghai. The rooms are large and modern with firm but comfortable beds. The TV has western cable channels.
There is a reasonably priced Italian restaurant and a small bakery/ coffee shop in the lobby.
The location of the hotel is central and approximately a 5 - 10 minute cab ride from the Bund, French Concession area and Xin Tian Di. There is a good pool and gym area.
Within a 2 minute walk there is a Starbucks and convenience store nearby.

Check where you will be spending most of your time. If anywhere near this hotel - this is a great choice. I've stayed in the 45 sqm room twice this year and find it spacious, modern and comfortable. Soft bed. Modern and open floor plan with high ceilings. There is a Starbucks across the street. The gym and pool are more than adequate. No hesitation to stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms have DVD players, but would not play USA purchased DVDs. iPod / iPhone speaker and charger wor...

Excellent service, comfortable room, good food and convenient location. Their morning breakfast buffet has two sections, one for Asian food and the other for Western food. Plently to choose from and quite tasty. Quite a viewAfter breakfast, I usually wait unil dinner for another meal. They prefer not to give you a go cup of coffee, but will if you ask nicely.

After a long day, the CO2 Cigar Bar is a treat. I rarely smoke but a good cigar once in a while with a tasty cocktail is quite nice. Try a Cosmopolitan unless you prefer an after dinner liqueur (I'm really fond of Drambuie with a cigar). Just wish it stayed open later.

Modern furnished large room with large flat screen TV and English Channels. My roon on the 35th floor was very nice with a large bathroom. Views out the window were impressive seeing the lower buildings and expressway way down there. I'd stay there agian!

I have been staying at the Longemont(formely Regent)for the past 4 years having previously stayed at many other 5 star hotels.
The longemont represents great value for money,i stay in an executive room,which are well appointed and comfortable.The Exec lounge is quiet and often a great place to work rather than stuck in your room.
Lovely pool and gym.Only downsides are the restuarants which arent the best but then there so many great places to eat in shanghai this shouldnt put you off.

My first stay in Longemont SH was back to 2008 when it was still operated by Regent. It is one of my most frequent stay hotel (around 20 stays) in Shanghai. Overall the hardware and service are still maintained at good level.

Room is comfortable in general, except occasionally AC didn't work very well and sound proof isn't good enough. In executive lounge, staffs are generally helpful. The breakfast and happy hour cocktail there are both good. However, if you are having breakfast at 2/F, you might find service isn't good there.

Hotel gym is big and fully equipped. It is still keeping at good condition. Swimming pool is nice too, you're able to see part of Shanghai while you are swimming.

Also want to mention the hotel restaurant, AMICI and Royal China are recommended choice. Because the hotel locate next the highway, there are not many eating place next to it, I usually eat inside hotel after work. AMICI is an Italian restaurant with good quality food, very Italian. Royal China is a good place for Chinese dumpling.

Unless you must stay in large western brand hotel, otherwise do give it a try.

Room Tip: Corner room with 42 sq mtr, arrangement is no good Stay in executive floor better Personally don...
