“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2007

Spent four nights in a premier room (like a suite) 27th Floor Grand Prix Period. Could not fault this Hotel absolutely first rate in everyway and so spotlessly clean. The Premier room was well worth the little extra cost, fantastic bathroom, windows on three sides of the room for fantastic views of Shanghai. Buffet Breakfast was excellent and beautifully presented. Taxis at the ready once you step outside the Hotel door, doorman will tell driver where you wish to go but be sure to have a Hotel Business card for your return journey as the taxi drivers do not speak english. The location of the Hotel was not a problem as Cabs are so cheap and plentiful.
Just a couple of tips. Be extra cautious crossing the road (especially if you are from Australia/NZ as they drive on the other side of the road. Do have a foot massage only 50RMB for a full hour, a friend recommended us to a place opposite the Novotel Hotel just a short walk from the Eton Hotel. The staff where so friendly even though they had limited English. We ended up calling in every evening
after a hectic day at the track. Anyone thinking of going to the Grand Prix next year just email me as I have plenty of information re
transport etc.

Stayed on an Executive floor at the Eton for three days in Ocober '07 and look forward to going back. The service at the hotel was excellent, the fitness facility was state of the art and the location, while not prime for sightseeing, made for an easy taxi ride into the heart of Shanghai. I recommend paying the small difference and staying on an Executive floor. The included breakfast, day time refreshments and evening wine/beer/cocktails more than make up for the difference in price. Overall, in terms of value, the Eton is hard to beat.

I have to stay this is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Everything in this hotel is well thought out. It’s spacious, modern, clean, and tidy; the staff are attentive and friendly.

Our twin room was on the 27th floor of the hotel. We’d paid a little bit extra for the view – and what a great view we had of the Pudong Business District with the Jin Mao Tower clearly visible. We could see the top of Pearl Tower in the distance but the majority of the building was masked by some other buildings.

Our room had two queen sized beds, flat screen TV, desk, two chairs, coffee table and ample storage space. The bathroom was amazing (see pictures) and also had a flat screen TV. The room had bathrobes, slippers and great selection of toiletries.

The swimming pool was amazing too, again everything had been well thought out.

Getting around Shanghai was quite easy. This hotel has an underground station next to it, although taxis are extremely cheap and are plentiful outside the hotel. BEWARE, the driving in China takes a little bit of getting used to. The Pearl Tower is within walking distance from the hotel, from here you can take the tourist tunnel to the Bund.

We ate in the hotel restaurant on the first night at the ‘Singaporean BBQ’. The food was tasty, fresh and very well presented. On our last night we enjoyed cocktails in the Lobby Lounge which featured a pianist. On both occasions we were well looked after and the prices were very reasonable.

This hotel is brand new and it clearly shows, it’s very modern and suited our tastes, however, if you prefer something a little chintzier, it might not be your cup of tea.

For a great meal head over to the Grand Hyatt hotel atop the Jin Mao tower, here you can enjoy a buffet with great views over the city. It was an excellent meal with a wide variety of both Chinese and western food at a very reasonable price.

Highly recommend the Executive Rooms with breakfast, evening drinks and canapes. Shanghai is a busy, brilliant, chaotic city and the Eton Hotel was a convenient, relaxing base for our holiday. Clean, well designed, Metro subway right across the street, great staff, good food and refreshing swimming pool. The Executive room has a fantastic view across the city, and looks amazing daytime and dazzling at night – with the many architectural wonders lit up, including the Oriental Pearl Tower. The Eton is close to town, yet a little further way from the maddening crowds of central Shanghai.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel during the Special Olympics. We had a wonderful experience at the hotel, staff are courteous with excellent English skills and very helpful for advice on getting around the city and what to see.The building itself does what good design is supposed to do...lift your spirits.

We are a family of four staying in Eton Hotel for 3 nights in Sep. We chose to stay in Executive floor. With that extra bit of money, it is absolutely worth it. Breakfast is well prepared and adequate and drinks are available all day in the executive lounge.

Staff are all polite and helpful. Rooms are spacious with separate shower and bath area.

Although it is not in the central shopping area , taxi is very cheap and you can also try the MTR system. There is a MTR station right in front of the hotel.
Overall , we are very happy about the hotel and it is value for money.

Out of all the different hotels in Shanghai, I must say the Eton has the most helpful, friendly, courteous, professional and welcoming staff of the lot. Nothing is a problem no matter what time of day or night - there is always a friendly smile.

I just returned from an extended stay in Shanghai. We chose the Eton Hotel based on online searches and the clincher was the high rating on Tripadvisor.

We were NOT disappointed!

A top class hotel with an excellent location. The hotel is located in the Pudong district of Shanghai - a vital location if you are in Shanghai on business. One of the best features is the metro station which is located right outside the hotel – this makes all of Shanghai easily accessible.

We pulled up in the taxi and the doorman opened our door immediately and welcomed us warmly and took care of the luggage. We walked into the foyer and right away felt impressed - it looked great!

The rooms are exactly as they appear on the website as are the common areas of the hotel. Unlike other hotels, their website is not edited to look better than the real thing.

All of the materials in the room are of superior quality - from the high end bed linens and funky furniture to the eye pleasing wall artwork and the beautiful marble bathroom. There was a 32” in LCD in the bed room and a 17” LCD in the bathroom, both with international news and movie channels.

Our room was very comfortable. The small features such as the turn down service and bottled water were a nice touch. The hotel also provides L'OCCITANE toiletries - shower gel, lotion, shampoo & conditioner and they replenish them every day!

The breakfasts were excellent.

I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family and would definitely return.
