Good location in Pu-Xi, 5min walk to Taikang Lu, and close to the French concession and Xiantiandi.
A-Club Gold advantages respected (room upgrade, early check in)
Decent property, modern.
Dedicated A-Club counter just for "decoration" dixit the front office manager...
Typical business hotel with fake luxury and without charm
Amenities below average
Breakfast not worth waking up!
Price: 900 CNY / night for a deluxe king. Breakfast included. Bought on accorhotels.com
Having been in Shanghai before on many occasions, this hotel was like many others in the city. It’s a typical business hotel, nice and modern but without charm. Good if you don’t know where you’re going, since the hotel follow international standards, but for us we were a bit disappointed. It was a bit too big, and not as luxurious as we thought it would be. The amenities for example were quite cheap, and there were plenty other small details like that.
The most important points for me when I made the reservation was to be located close to the French concession and get an early Check in. Beeing A-Club gold, the latter should be possible.
Indeed around 7:30 am we were at the check in desk, asking for our room. Of course the young Korean woman said first that no rooms were available yet, but as soon as I showed my status card (I hate flashing those cards, but sometimes you really have no choice), she managed to find a junior suite for us that was available at once.
Our room was of course very big, with a large entrance, a separate living area, large bedroom and large bathrooms. Besides that; nothing out of the ordinary: amenities were very classical, and as in all Chinese hotels, house keeping does not respect the do not disturb sign.
Still we managed to sleep a few hours after our flight.
We had breakfast there one morning (included), and that was not a very pleasant experience. We came late, and were told that we had only 15 minutes to grab whatever we wanted before they’d start cleaning up. Fair enough and so we did. To be honest the food was quite bad, and when they started cleaning it made the whole experience even worse. Indeed, the chefs came with big buckets and started throwing all the types of food from the buffet into the buckets. I let imagine the scene not very classy and not very appetizing.
We did not eat there again. Shanghai has so much to offer anyway. The day after we went for brunch at Madison in the French concession.
At check out there was quite a queue. I asked to use the A-Club counter and was told it was there only for decoration. Nice touch…
Conclusion: decent hotel, but I would not stay there again.
