“Fine hotel”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

Located a 10 minute walk from the subway, this hotel is beautifully designed and next to the performing arts center. It's not an area for walking around to shop, but there is a terrific park across the street. And even though it's not the "touristy" part of town, the subway makes everything convenient. The rooms are really comfortable and the breakfasts are good. The staff is unusually kind and do pretty well with English.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the park and museum

I'm stay in this hotel due to Sinotrans conference wich take place in Pudong expo
For this purpose location is very good only may be Crown Plaza or Renessainse better
Good service, friendly staff and quite big enough room. Breakfast I did not try but restaurant is good and not expensive for local food. It is tasty.
But a little far from city center and another bank of Huangpu river

We booked at this hotel because it was not too far from the exhibition center where we were going to attend a food fair. We arrived very late at this hotel at almost midnight after a long trip from the airport. The hotel's location is an hour away from the airport.

We were not expecting too much as the room rates were very reasonable and the front desk guy did not speak English well. All we wanted to do was get to the room and order our dinner from room service.

We were pleasantly surprised to find the room quite nice and clean with special amenities like an ironing board, hair dryer, a tub and a shower. The bed was quite comfortable to sleep in and the sheets were crisp and white.

We ordered noodle soup and fried rice from Room Service and they arrived within 30 minutes. The food was satisfying and exceeded our expectations. The breakfast buffet spread the following morning was very good and very extensive. Very good value for money indeed. The place was very nice, with floor to ceiling glass overlooking a garden.

The hotel is at a good location and if you like to walk, you will find Shanghai very nice. The area is very green and clean. Taxis are available outside the hotel and you just have to have a bellman call one for you.

The train station is a 15 minute walk away and if you like shopping, the station is housed in a shopping mall. You will find a lot of designer knock-offs, souvenirs, coats, clothes, paintings, decor and pretty much anything you want. It was quite fun to check out the wares as there was so much variety. Make sure you haggle before buying. Ask for a 50% discount to start with as there seems to be no real price. The vendors are eager for a sale and if you walk away, they will come after you and give you the merchandise at the price that you wanted.

Room Tip: If you're attending an exhibit, the organizers are able to get good room rates for you so make s...

Stayed at Parkview Hotel in Shanghai's Pudong area last week. On arrival, was checked in very quickly and our bags were taken up to our room. I think we must have been upgraded because the superior room we had was larger then our colleagues. This was a nice surprise. The rooms are large in general whether upgraded or not. They seem quite new and are clean! Bed are comfortable, shower large, also bath in bathroom, but bathroom only had one sink which is unfortunate. Room had broadband ethernet connection (cable in room) but not wireless. Room service is good and breakfast buffet is extensive. Overall a good hotel ad compared to prices of other similar rated hotels, this was by far the best value for money. I was very happy with my stay here. would recommend!

Considering the price the rooms are just what I expected, spacious and comfortable. If you do not bring your own computer and have some work to do you will be facing a slow, old and not very well maintained computer in the business center for which you will have to pay 30Y for the half hour. This I found outrageous and it has really turned the experience sour. Staff do speak English, but my request for the roomservice to deliver faster (Huh?), faster, quicker, more quickly (Huh?) than the announced half hour was not understood "You want Pasta?" The food was okay and considering there is nothing in walking distance you will not starve but do not expect anything out of the ordinary. One thing annoyed me, at the restaruant in the lobby or with room service you could not order local water, it was Evian (for an outrageous price). Really, lower the hotel prices to half, and I will be back. Otherwise, I will look around for something worth the money.

One good thing is the walking distance to the subway station. Turn right when leaving the hotel, walk past the art institute, you come to a big square where you turn left. It is a 5 minute walk. You will know when you are they by being instantly pestered by someone trying to take you to the fake market which is inside the subway station.

Another thing the hotel should really know better: I did not know the Maglev only operates till 9:30 pm. But the hotel should. So when I ordered a taxi at the hotel to take me there they should have prevented me. So here for you not to make the same mistake I made, the subway only operates till 9 pm on the way out to Pudong and the Maglev till 9:30. So from the hotel, if you are that late, take a Taxi directly to the airport.

I stayed here on a business trip. The room was large and comfortable. The furnishings, wallpaper and draperies were nearly new. The service was freindly. I enjoyed the restaurant. I wiould call it good, but not spectacular as many business hotels aim to be. If I return to this area, I will definately book here again.
