“Originally The Regent, but still very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2009

There has been an ownership change & the Regent name has been removed, but the hotel is still 5 star quality. The location may be a problem for some, but with taxi's so cheap in Shanghai, it's only $3-4 USD to get to The Bund or Pudong. Large rooms, oversized bathrooms with separate tub & shower, & some rooms have bathroom walls that slide open to the rest of the room. The facility has the usual Regent high quality touches & attention to design detail. Try to get a corner Studio with room numbers that end with 02 or 13, & you'll be impressed by the larger spaces. Spectacular views on a clear day, since the hotel occupies the top floors of a 50+ story office building. Fantastic roof top infinity pool & one of the most impressive gyms I've seen at any hotel. Great restaurants, wonderful soft beds compared to most in China, & top notch service. Priced as you would expect for 5 star quality.

Stayed for 2 nights with my husband after business trip in Zhejiang province. Hotel reception very large, clean and modern, staff efficient and friendly. Our double room was on 26 floor and at first appearance looked very modern and tidy. However, upon closer inspection some of the furniture and fittings were dented/scratched and the computer desk had dried in food stains. Carpets needed a good wash as they looked grubby. Double bed was very comfortable though. Wireless internet free in your room and we had a large plasma TV too.

There was lots to choose from the buffet breakfast, from Chinese congee to pastries, cereals, baked beans, bacon, sausages ands fresh fruit to name a few. We ate out in the evening around Shanghai city as it was a lot cheaper than the hotel's restaurants.

This hotel is a bit out the way from the centre of Shanghai and is not near any public train system therefore we got around by taxi which we picked up outside the hotel. Taxis are cheap to get around Shanghai.

Overall excellent rooms, but downgraded to 2 stars as no hot water in the early morning
Place felt clinical and unfriendly
Very comfortable beds
Location - not in tourist area but you are only 5-10 mins away by taxi.... not really much to see in Shanghai (certainly NOT a tourist destination)
Shanghai is very polluted and overcast all the time - would not recommend it to anyone
I gave this a 2 star as there was no hot water for the shower despite fiddling with the setting for over 5 minutes
On check out the staff didnt ask what I thought of my stay, how was the room, etc so I wasnt able to comment and with indifferent staff I didnt see the point in feeding back the fact that my stay was spoilt by having to have a cold shower
I wouldnt stay again

We stayed here for four nights after spending three nights in Peninsula Beijing...It's a former Regent hotel and we payed it about 100 USD per night/room. We had a rom on 20-something floor and we were amazed with it. The view was perfect, windows floor to ceiling, big bath-tub, walk-in shower with lights inside and you really feel perfect. You've got everything you need to have in 5 star hotel. Location is on the way from smaller airport to the city center and you need 20 minutes to the Bund, depends on traffic. This was one of the best hotels I ever stayed in, for me much better than Peninsula in Beijing...

Stayed here for 9 nights at the Corner Suite on the 51st Floor, The view from the hotel is simply amazing and one can see the Shanghai Skyline from the full glass walls of the bathroom !!! Awestruck is what you feel from there. Most hotel would not have rooms of the size of the bathrooms here with Aigner Amenities and rain shower and jaccuzzi you feel like a king in a castle. The rooms are contemporary decor with plush furnishings
The Staff of the hotel is very warm and friendly and the ever smiling and helpful concierge would never let you feel out of place. While on the move from the hotel the concierge would always make sure that the Taxi Driver takes you to the right place and the name of the place are always handed over to the guest scribbled in mandarin with a return card that you could hand over to the cab driver which says "My Residence in Shanghai" with the address of the hotel printed in Mandarin and English.
The service at the hotel is simply superb with excellent food, the lobby bar comes alive in the night with live piano and signing performance by a pop duo.
Amici the Italian Dining at the hotel offers excellent food and is very highly rated in Shanghai. Even the breakfast at the breakfast lounge is a very vast buffet spread with huge choices between western and hot asian breakfast.
The Hotel is situated in the city centre but is slightly away from tourist spots like The Bund or the Nanjing Road but that is hardly of much consequence, its no more than a 20 minute cab ride. One can easily accept this little fact as Shanghai city centre itself is quite huge. For those who wish to avoid the shanghai traffic its a 500M walk to the nearest MRT or Metro from this place which connects you to the Nanjing Lu
