    Very nice hotel tastefully decorated. Nice big room.

    Reception staff was not specially friendly or helpful. Just "business nice"

    I like the location of the hotel. It is close to a metro stop and the shopping streets. There's a good coffee shop across which was very convenient as I found the breakfast in the hotel expensive. There are restaurants and bars around in all price range. The building also has a lot of history and the interior is very nice and reflective of the period it was built. If I have the chance to return to Shanghai I will book this hotel again.

    Near to cafe, bar and nightlife. Located in small street, less traffic, but easy to find taxi. Swimming pool and fitness center facility are ok.

    So far to the metro station, is not within the walking distance, but at least taxi is around. Breakfast not good, all the chinese food dish are too oily to be eaten, even the omelets was greasy, the soya milk was stink. The hall, restaurant, and the room are too dark and old. The bathtub curtain in my room 1419 was too disgusting, how much is the cost of buying one piece of plastic curtain?

    The room is very spacious with a big balcony. The service is good with prompt response. We are happy with the location of the hotel.

    The buffet breakfast is valued for money, but there is still room for improvement in food quality, especillay in western food. There should be more choices of cereals and fruit if possible.The carpet in the room needs to be replaced or cleaned better.

  • Older travelers

    Your front desk and restaurant staff was very courteous and helpful.The rooms were well kept, comfortable and warm.The location is perfect for people that want to enjoy the former "French Concession" which still has much of the architecture and housing of the 30's. Pleasant walking areas with many small shops and "street food" stalls.

    We were disappointed that the swimming pool was not open.

    Reception, doorman are very kind and helpful. They showed me the way to the spot where I would like to go, so no issue in sightseeing.

    It was in a great area for shopping and eating. The doormen were very welcoming too.

    they didn't have a lot of english speaking staff and it could also get a little noisy at night.

    I was upgraded - so definitely no complaints with that. The part of the hotel I stayed in was in a beautiful inter-war building, modernist with Chinese stylings. The location was great for the French Concession area, which was probably the most lovely part of Shanghai to walk around.

    The hotel is in 2 parts - a little confusing at first because I went to the reception of the first building I found, and had to be redirected to the other part of the hotel further up the road. Not sure how they book out the rooms, but I can imagine you might feel a little disappointed if you got a room in this first building which seemed to have less character than the one I stayed in.

    wonderful ambiance; great location; large, tastefully appointed room; extremely quiet.

    carpet in room was stained and should have either been cleaned or replaced. no extra roll of toilet paper.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Room was spacious and very clean.

    Airconditioning a little loud. Cost for 2 coffees in front area was very expensive.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    We loved this hotel. Got upgraded to a huge suite which was extremely comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. Itis in the most fabulous location for real Shanghai - local colour combined with great restaurants and cafes. Excellent shopping nearby. It is a distance from Pudong and the tourist sights but taxis are so cheap it doesnt matter.
