“Better than expected”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Having read some of the previous reviews, I was a bit apprehensive when my colleagues in China booked me in this hotel. But the experience turned out to be totally different.

I assumed the hotel to be in some kind of a deserted factory area and the drive form the airport on a weekend night seemed to confirm that. But next day I realized that the hotel is in a nice location, minutes away from hip Biyun Road neighborhood in Pudong, which is the expat area. In fact is is barely 200 meters from Ramada and Marriot. There are a no of nice restaurants and bars within walking distance, including award winning Mexican and American ones. There is also an Indian restaurant nearby. In fact, on my last visit I stayed at the Intercontinental and found the location of Grand Park Jiayou better. I felt pretty safe going for walks as late as 10 PM.

The rooms were spacious and well appointed. So was the bathroom with a shower and a triangle shaped bath tub. The toiletries were of average quality and some of the bath towels little worn out, though clean and fresh. The linen and pillows were also clean and ensured good sleep quality.

The only downside was the approach and 'lobby' of tower B. Its like an annex and the approach was fine passing by a banquet hall on one side and pool on the other side. But once you entered , it was quite depressing. There is a narrow passage lined up with some shops, leading to the elevators which gives a feeling of being in some shady apartment building. However once you are in the room its at par with any other 4*.

Overall I would definitely recommend it for the value for money and neighborhood.

Room Tip: The rooms in B wing overlook the canal but the approach and lobby is a bit depressing.

I stayed at the Grand Park Jiayou for one night on a business trip Oct. 2013. The hotel is a very solid 3-star facility, mostly with Chinese customers; I saw no other western visitors in the hotel. The hotel has an excellent location in Pudong, a medium cab ride from the airport (although a bit distant for a walk to the Shanghai subway system). The hotel is built with two towers which are not connected; so you have to take the elevator to the ground to go into the other tower. Both buildings seem to be modern, clean, comfortable and everything you would expect.

My room was of medium size, good bed, nice TV, and a handsome bathroom. Everything worked well. The staff was helpful and polite, and most spoke sufficient english to get by. The breakfast buffet was adequate; nothing over the top but still more than sufficient. There is a nice swimming pool but I didn't get to use it.

One feature I REALLY liked and would encourage other hotels to adopt: there is a motion-detector by the hotel room door that turns on a light in the room automatically. So when you get up in the middle of the night to use the lavatory, BING the light comes on and you don't walk into the furniture. Within a minute it turns itself off. Very convenient!

What stops this from being a total 4-star hotel? Just a number of little things. For example, I don't mind walking to the other tower from the lobby to go to my room, but the walk over to the other building is dark and poorly marked. The door into the building is very small, heavy and hard to open -- you really have to tug. The corridor is narrow and dark. The furniture and carpeting in my room was adequate, but showed significant signs of wear. The breakfast buffet, as noted above, was just OK. For what I received, I think the price (680RMB or about US$115) is a bit high, especially considering the competition in the area. So the Jiayou gets a good score, and I would not hesitate to recommend it or stay there again, but it's not the perfect destination it probably would like to be.

Stay here often on a business trip. Staff is friendly and willing to help solve problems. There are problems. Last stay was bad. Wifi didn't work for a few days, the toilet was broken en the breakfast gets worse every week. Rooms are clean and decent size, alhough I have seen much bigger for a similar price. Quite far away from the Bund or French concession. At least 40min by taxi. Luckily taxi's are reasonably cheap. Overall an average hotel, but more then good enough for a 2day business trip.be carefull in the bar, the prices are way too high!

Welcoming and professional staff. They messed up our group booking, giving half our rooms to another group, but after initially refusing to admit they'd made an error, they were quite accommodating and two of our rooms were upgraded. Very ordinary, but clean, business style rooms and facilities. I wouldn't stay here on holiday, but for a business trip it was fine. Small gym and spa, u Iquitos tailor and luggage shop. For Pudong based trips, it's fine and dealer than the big two next door!

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night. Felt uncomfortable even though it was only 1 night. I didn't like the room that i stayed in, as it was situated at the corner, at the end. And the lights near the door were also flickering in my room for no apparent reason. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. Nonetheless, the lobby was cosy, wifi was also available at the lobby. Breakfast was great, tasty and there were lots of variety.
There was a Carrefour nearby. If you're on a tight schedule, that would count as the closest shopping centre. Another plus point of staying at this hotel is it takes only about 20mins to reach the Pudong airport. So if you're on a business trip, you might wanna consider this hotel.

This hotel stay was organized for me by my local colleagues. I have always stayed at 5 star American hotels when staying in Shanghai, avnd was a little skeptical when they booked my room in a local Chinese hotel. But overall it was a very comfortable stay at an excellent price point (~$80) and I would be happy to stay here again.

The decor was nice, but furniture looked a bit worn. Could use a little updating.

Only a few on the staff spoke English. The staff was helpful, but not overly-gracious as you sometimes find with Chinese hotels. The first room they gave me was a smoking room - which was really smokey - but they were able to exchange it for a non-smoking room very quickly/ easily. If you are a non-smoker, be sure to ask for a non-smoking room up front. I could not imagine having to have slept in the smoking room if nothing else was available...

Internet connection was LAN and worked great. The bed was OK, but I slept well. There were 4 different types of pillows to choose from - the pillows were great. The bathroom was very well stocked with all amenities, I was very impressed with this.

Rooms were on the smaller side, but I wasn't staying long - just needed a place to download email and sleep.

After spending several days in China, I'm often craving American food, so I gave the American Cheeseburger a try at the hotel Cafe. I had low expectations as normally hamburgers just don't taste the same...but I was pleasantly surprised how tasty it was. The bun tasted as though it was freshly made too.

I woke up too late for the standard hotel breakfast and ordered a fruit plate and coffee from room service. The fruit was very good, coffee was tyipical Chinese coffee - not great. Was hoping to use the fitness center, but it was in another building (block B), and very small. It did not have a treadmill, so I did not end up using it. Would be better to expand this a bit.

All in all, for the price, this was a very good value. I would recommend it for business travelers and budget consumers.

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking up front
