Giant View Hotel & Residence
Ranked #2,043 of 5,160 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed July 18, 2008

Good, clean business hotel for a reasonable price in Shanghai.

Excellent internet access and the sateliteTV has BBC.

Clean rooms with lots of space to spread out, including a dining room with large table and kitchenette.

The bathrooms are nice with marble showers, but could use a little TLC on cleanliness.

Breakfast is not western, but is an okay meal.

The bar, Archie's, attached to the hotel is great, has a friendly feel, is extremely accomodating (will give room service to the hotel), and comes complete with bar dog and decent food.

This hotel is clearly aimed at the business market. It's in a nice area around the French Concession, although the hotel's map cards could be a little clearer - so bring a proper map. The room was a decent size with a screened off dining room, a (noisy) fridge, hob, kitchen sink etc. On the other side of the screen were the beds, which were a decent size. The bathroom was adequate with a good sized walk in shower. The age of some of the fittings was starting to show. Western breakfast consists of toast but if you like Chinese breakfast then you'll be adequately catered for. Reception staff spoke very little English. All in all, very reasonably priced and a good base if you aren't going to spend huge amounts of time in the hotel.
