Reviewed September 8, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights. It is about half an hour by road from Shanghai city centre. It's located in lovely grounds. Breakfast has a good variety of food. Bedroom and bathroom satisfactory although attention should be paid to remedying mould in bathroom. The drawback is the lack of English language skills of the staff.If it hopes to attract international customers, staff must be able to communicate. Tree-lined environs attractive because it's situated in a former concession area.

This was the first hotel on a 2 week Wendy Wu tour of China. Better than we were expecting, it is in a delightful setting and is well maintained with friendly staff who in spite of a lack of English managed to make us feel welcome. Our time in Shanghai was occupied by the tour but we did have tome to walk to the nearby park which was very pleasant. The only meals we had in the hotel were breakfast which was a mixture of Western and Chinese food, plentiful and tasty.

We stayed for four days and held corporate training programmes. Service was great in the restaurant. Less so in the bar and reception but okay. Food was wonderful. Rooms lovely. Would definitely recommend it.

We spent two nights at the Anting Villa Hotel, Shanghai at the start of our two week sightseeing trip with Wendy Wu Tours. As first time visitors to mainland China, arriving in Shanghai was a bit of an eye opener - despite having read about it and seen images of the futuristic cityscape with its glass skyscrapers, monorails and motorways, we were completely blown away by the sheer scale and contemporary feel of the place. So we were surprised when we arrived at the Anting Villa Hotel, looking quaint and colonial, standing elegantly in its own gardens amongst the surrounding hustle and bustle of Shanghai.
As access to the hotel is via a side street there was no disturbance from traffic and it was just a couple of minutes walk to the local bars, restaurants and convenience stores - as we enjoy a bit of the local nightlife we found it to be ideal. Service within the hotel was efficient and helpful even though very little English is spoken by anyone with the exception of front line staff.
Our room was fairly large with all the usual mod-cons including fridge, safe, internet access, tea/coffee and TV (only CNN in English). There is a large balcony to the room although access to it was locked - it looked as though it was shared with the neighbouring room. The bathroom was modern and very clean.
Breakfast was a selection of Chinese dishes and one or two more familiar western style foods such as scrambled eggs or fresh fruit. Seating was arranged around several large circular tables so it was always necessary to just find a couple of seats amongst the other guests, a lot of whom were also on a tour as well, so it wasn't too bad.
The Anting Villa Hotel turned out to be a good base for our stay in Shanghai but as our daytime excursions were already organised as part of our tour, we couldn't really comment on its location for access to public transport.

We were on our first visit to China and arrived in Shanghai, after a delayed flight, to be greeted at Pudong Airport with rain, fog, smog and darkness although it was only about 6:00 pm. This made us think "what are we doing here?"

We were transferred by taxi to the Anting Villa Hotel, where we were staying. On arrival after about an hour, we were made to feel very welcome and our opinion of Shanghai quickly changed. The hotel is situated in a quiet area and we were given a large room which had every facility often lacking in some hotels. These included free Internet access from our room and electric sockets to suit seemingly any appliance without the use of adaptors, even a UK socket that I have seen only rarely in hotels overseas.

Despite our late arrival, we were able to get a hot meal in the hotel's restaurant and all the staff were charming. We had a good night's sleep in a bed that did not seem to be as hard as those we had been warned about in China.

The breakfast offered was a mixture of western and Chinese. On reflection after we had returned to the UK, that in the Anting Villa was better for the western palate than the other hotels we stayed in during our tour of China.

The hotel was situated in pleasant gardens and was generally clean, comfortable and well looked after. We were happy that we stayed here for our first days in China.

Anting Villa Hotel was the best Hotel on our 28 day tour of China. Rooms are very modern for Chinese standards very comfortable beds nice views of the surrounding area would be nice if you had access to the verandah but they will not open them for you, beautiful gardens to enjoy 5 minute walk to a few local pubs which is a great way to finish the trip with the rest of your family, only gripe is only one coffee machine in the morning which means a long line for that morning fix.

A month in China and this was a little gem at the end of the trip. With a touch of colonial 'class' throughout from the fountains with their own sound and light show to the small 'touches' in the bathroom. Even the shirts got an iron! Free and good WiFi and large 'soft' (for China) beds! Buffet breakfast more than adequate for we westerners. Two bars though we only used the lobby bar once as someone discovered the local friendly bars 5 minutes away (left and left from the hotel). There was a wedding taking place in the grounds on one evening which made the grounds look very special. Highly recommended.
