This 4-star hotel from the Accor chain was renovated in 2007 to give the restaurants and 401 guest rooms a sleek contemporary look. The 180 spacious superior club rooms on higher floors in the 30-story tower offer many appealing upgrades plus inspiring skyline views of Shanghai. East Nanjing Road subway station is a block away, and the hotel is a five-minute walk to the Bund and a 20-minute stroll to Yu Garden and People's Square. 

Dining

Shimmering red and blue tiles in Mosaic match the gleaming neon lights right outside on Nanjing Road. Mosaic serves an international buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a popular Sunday Champagne brunch. Mao restaurant serves dim sum and other Cantonese delicacies. Bar 505 serves its own microbrews, a unique offering for a hotel bar.

Rooms

Extensive renovations in 2007 transformed the 401 spacious rooms with stylish contemporary furnishings and a subtle color palette of browns and grays. Rooms include premium mattresses, safe, mini-bar, desk, Wi-Fi (fees apply), and flat-screen television with satellite channels. Classic and superior rooms are the same size, but the 180 superior rooms include club privileges and such upgrades as free high-speed Internet, L'Occitane bath products, and separate bathtub and shower.

The hotel is a great place to stay. The breakfast buffet is very good but pricey. There are several hotels within walking distance who have just as good a buffet but for much less.

Good location, nice hotel but service can be improved

Plus points for this hotel is the location. It's located just outside the pedestrian street of East Nanjing Road. Taking the metro to the hotel is easy, but getting out of the metro and finding your way to the hotel could be a little tricky. The hotel could do with better instructions on its website as to which exit to get out and then turn left or right etc. The check-in was painful. I am not sure if the booking details were not properly transmitted from this site to the hotel etc...but the check in counter took a long time to find our bookings. We booked 2 rooms. In the end, only 1 room was ready for us and we were supposed to come back to get the key for the 2nd room and this was already way past the check in time stated. We went out for a late lunch and got back to the hotel at 4ish and this time round, we had to face another round of confusion from the 2nd lady at the check-in desk. In fact, we found her a little rude. If only she had allowed us to explained further, but all she did was ask us for our name and promptly went to check on the computer. She couldn't find our booking details in the system. And as I happened to remember the previous lady who checked us into the 1st room and we saw her at the other desk, we told the 2nd lady to check with her instead. The booking was eventually sorted as we were apparently checked-in but needed a key by the previous staff...BUT not before we overheard the 2nd lady complaining in mandarin to the 1st lady that we didn't tell her anything. WELL, if only she had taken the time to listen to us? Other than this, everything else is good with the hotel and I would still recommend it to friends due to its location, but just don't expect excellent service from the staff.

Good Hotel in a great area

Everything about the hotel was very good. [...] We booked the hotel and the deal was "including breakfast". Our [...]booking receipt showed this but unfortunately this was not included in the communication between [...]and the hotel. The hotel was therefore unable to include breakfast in the deal. In the end we just went to Subway and had breakfast there.

Don't let the street hawkers bother you.Just a polite "no thank you" and keep walking is all you need to do.
