Guoman Hotel Shanghai4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
At 3 AM, a half-naked, intoxicated woman entered my room and would not leave. At first, I thought she was escaping a bad situation in another room - always beware the damsel in distress - but when she sat herself down right next to my purse, I became suspicious. I called the front desk and shouted, "Emergency! Help! Police! Someone broke into my room!", etc. No help. As if they didn't understand English - nor my alarmed tone of voice. So I threw her out myself, as gently as possible. When I went to the front desk, the manager was asleep. The clerks suddenly could understand some English. But before I told them, they somehow knew the woman was intoxicated. And just how did she access my room? I believe they were all in on it.
The hotel was clean and well decorated. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean but a little worn. The hotel breakfast was good and varied. You could always get something fresh to eat and free specialty coffee at breakfast. The main obstacle is that the hotel is not in a busy area.
Hotel was very good, but so far from many of Shanghai attractions. Service and facilities were good but there is nothing in the area to see. A large shopping mall, parts being renovated, is next door with typical restaurants available.
This is a very good hotel in an isolated part of Shanghai. The hotel is very new with very good facilities. The room are large with all you will require. The room we had had a great view over the lake area.The breakfast are is also very good with a good variety of western food. The problem arose when dinner was not provided on the tour as there is not good restaurants in the area. We ending up having KFC from across the road. There is a restaurants in the hotel but as usual is expensive. Good place to stay if on tour and not looking fore public transport.
clean comfortable rooms, good linen and bed. v.average internet speed. the area - beside park nearby, is very boring, lot of building work near, and a taxi trip to anywhere. other reviews say close subway - ?? not true.the ironically named joy centre next door which features a centre courtyard of just concrete, is half closed. The breakfast here is just average.staff nice. But that is about it. as usual in China, (ITALY the worse!) door people very slow to help with bags.
The Guoman is an excellent choice for business travelers in terms of comfort, room decor, amenities, dining (especially breakfast) and service. I've stayed at the Guoman for the past five years for a week to ten days at a time. The staff are friendly, there are three restaurants from which to choose and a comfortable bar. The fitness facility has state of the art TechnoGym equipment, the spa is great and overall a great choice for a business hotel. Being in Putuo, this hotel is not perfectly convenient for sightseeing but the Chengfeng Park is just across the street and really charming.
This hotel is a small, somewhat new hotel with a good breakfast bar and good rooms. The rooms are somewhat small, but the view is very good. The light switch is confusing though. The cot beds are rock hard however.
Nice enough hotel, but whoever furnished the room did a very poor job. Why would you not have any towel rails in the bathroom? Only one chair in the room, and if you leant back, it was not stable. There was no suitcase stand or anywhere to put your suitcases. We had three suitcases on the floor. Lighting using the room switches was totally confusing. We are seasoned travellers and familiar with hotel lighting. Except this hotel. Ample breakfast. We stayed in Room 0603.
Stayed at the Guoman Hotel for 2 nights. It looks everything could be perfect but there are some missing bits. The building and the rooms themselves are good enough. It does not get old properly. The staff is overall ignoring the customers whatever it is at the arrival, at the reception, in the reception. If you have the choices, you have beside better standard hotels.
The rooms are well equipped, well working showers and comfortable beds. The buffet breakfast has a good selection of foods. The location is not very convenient but good enough for our purpose during our stay in Shanghai
