business and leisure trip

The hotel has a very special, nice feeling I could find very seldom. Everything was over the expectations. Only one thing deteriorated the overall perfectness: as our flight was due in the evening I asked 5 hours overstay in the room. It was granted but against of the 50 of the full day full price. I expected it to be granted free (as it frequently happened in other hotels) or max. 1/4 or 1/3 price.

Great Location. 5-mins walk to East Nanjing Road station. The room was spacy and clean. Air conditioner is a bit too noisy.

Great hotel and staff

Love this place. It's my go to place on my business trips. Breakfast charges are too high, so I normally patronize local restaurants, there are many, to give others a boost! Note: not sure why they have so many doors that they only open an unwelcoming crack (one panel) for guests! Very odd!

Great family holiday

We stayed in this hotel for three nights within a three week tour of China and it was by far the best hotel we stayed in. The room was spacious and there was a separate bath and shower which was great for our 15 mth old as we had previously experienced shower only hotel rooms. The swimming pool, sauna, steam facilities were great - really clean and a great escape from the city with a baby in tow. My son was sick late one night and staff were quick to come and change the bed sheets. We had a meal in the French/Italian restaurant in the hotel and it was the first time in China we had been given baby bowl and forks. The restaurant was almoat empty and our son pushed his car up and down the floor and staff were friendly and let him play. Everywhere in China is really baby friendly, they seem to love babies and be a lot more tolerant then in western society. My son constantly had a entourage with his white skin and blonde hair - had his picture taken more than David Beckham. The language barrier is more prominent as there aren't many people that speak English in Shanghai. The hotel staff do speak English although sometimes it can be limited - they will understand you eventually. For example, we ordered room service breakfast a few times and on the menu one of the options for yoghurt is plain - when asked which flavour we wanted they didn't understand 'plain'. Even though this was in their own menu. They seem to have a different list of options at the other end of the telephone - there option being original. My husband thought they were saying orange. We got there in the end! The language barrier is also apparent when travelling in a taxi. One thing I have struggled with is the lack of chinese address on English booking forms you print off - You need your address in Chinese if travelling from airport/train station to your hotel as the taxi driver will not understand the address in English. I do not know why they do not put this on your booking form. It is worth taking out the hotel card wallet they put your room key in as this has the address in chinese and a little map to show taxi driver. Then you will always find your way back quickly - if travelling with children you don't always have the luxury of time when they are tired/cranky. Location is ideal as it is close to main shopping street and quick walk to the bund. Would recommend a trip to the French concession and the shopping bizarre there - taxi or metro for this trip. Overall our stay in this hotel was superb. I couldn't fault it. I would definitely recommend this hotel and it would be my first choice of visiting Shanghai again.
