Here's my two cents of my experience with Sandalwood Hotel:- About the hotel 1. Historical, traditional, feels like back in 60s'. Pleasant old porter, good receptionist, fast check-in/out ... 2. Great breakfast! 3. The room just feel like back in time, very old style, nonetheless, clean and very spacious! 4. City view is GREAT! Area of improvement:- 1. Some cigarette smell at the hallway. 2. The carpet inside the room maybe a bit oldish ... 3. The armchair inside the room maybe a bit oldish ... 4. May consider providing welcome drink. 5. May consider playing some music in lobby area, so pity that a piano is sitting there for display, it is a historical place after all, isn't it? Hotel location and surrounding 1. Fantastic, Wow location! 2. Located nearly to everything!

If New York had the iconic The Plaza Hotel, Shanghai’s icon would no doubt be The Park Hotel, an art deco historical building that sits right in the centre of Nanjing Road. Overlooking what is now the People’s Park, it was once the tallest building in Asia and remained the tallest in Shanghai until the 80s before the rapid mordernisation of the rest of the city. The building actually served as the point 0 is Shanghai’s original mapping survey, making the hotel the centre of Shanghai. Walk past the side of the Park Hotel and chances are, there’s a long lined formed outside it’s deli. I had no idea what the line was about and decided to take a peak inside. The aroma of baked goodies filled the air and those people were lining up for a taste of their butterfly crackers. Supposedly an institution. Oh well, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

What a little gem in the geographical centre of Shanghai!!! A wonderful historical hotel so well located. Minutes to People's Square park and subway station and a short walk to Nanjing Rd East shopping. The rooms are more than adequate, a little run down with some paint coming off in the bathrooms, otherwise just perfect for us. Amazing water pressure too. The morning breakfast was just perfect with a good mix of western and eastern foods.. Helpful and friendly staff. I can see that others have said that its old and tired, I can see their point of view but it is well looked after and it is clean.

In the year of 2017 from September 22 to December 14, I stayed Park Hotel, Shanghai, China 3 times. Overall, I would like to rate five stars. Based on: It is a pleasant, friendly and warmth hotel with excellent location (the heart of city), 90 years fantastic and elegant history, and very convenient transportation; Very clean nice and comfortable room with a great city view; A good breakfast buffet with wide selections. Excellent Beijing Cuisines are at her traditional Beijing Style restaurant ( Fengze Lou) located at second floor with outstanding excellent amenities and very nice services; a signature Peking (Beijing) Duck characterized by its thin, crisp skin, and juicy meat, as well. An enjoyable bar is in the Lobby with Piano’s playing in later evening.

The only great thing about the hotel is the location. The facilities are dirty and old. The check in and out were smooth. When we got our room, we had to go and change it as it smelled badly, someone smoked cigarettes in the room prior our arrival. When we got our new room now the smell was different, and it came from the bathroom, the bathroom had mold, there was a window just in front of the toilet, so anyone that was on the bed could see when someone was using it, as the blinds on the window didn’t worked well. We found a cigarrete butt in between the bed sheets... and saw a little bug cockroach like in the chair. We called to the lobby cause the AC didn’t work, and they told us that they didn’t have AC at all... I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone, there are some other hotels in the area they looked better from the outside.

Great location straight across from Peoples Square. Easy access to Metro Station. Close to Nanjing Rd Shopping strip. Was once Asias Tallest building. Whilst rooms are in need of a bit of an update, it's still comfortable. Good breakfast. Have stayed there on more than one occasion

the hotel is lovely to look at, very art deco, built in the 1930's, but looks are deceiving. we were the only 'white' people staying here. mainly chinese! the front of house staff have limited english, this included the concierge (although he did try to understand our questions) the room was okay, but had so much furniture in it that it made it very small!. the air con was noisy making it hard to sleep, in the 3 nights we were there the room was never dusted and there was mould in the grouting over the bath/shower (ugh!) breakfast was barely adequate as it was mainly chinese. eggs were cooked, but left on plates in the open (not on a hot plate) the juices tasted like cordial, best bit was the fruit. best part about the hotel was its proximity to the Nanjing Rd pedestrian street (shops, shops and more shops) dont stay at this hotel unless you speak chinese!!!!

Very unfriendly staff, took us 40' to check in. The room was average and the bathroom looked like it was still the same like in 1950. We asked to arrange a taxi in 20', when we came down, nothing was arranged so after waiting another 10' we did the trip on foot which caused us to miss our appointment by 20'. Never going back here when in Shanghai.

This hotel was built in the 1930s and at some point was probably the best in the area. Its been renovated over the years. It still has some traces of grandeur but it looks like its going to need some updating soon. We arrived a couple of hours after midnight to the strong smell of cigarette smoke. The lobby was rather dark but the staff quickly processed our check in. We then lugged all our luggages ourselves to our room. The view from the window is not so good, and hampered by the chair and ottoman beside it. This same chair and ottoman makes the cabinet situated behind it (and the safe inside the cabinet) difficult to access. For an old hotel, the noise coming from the hallways is quite considerable. Otherwise, sleep quality is good. In-room wi-fi is free but spotty. And considering that there is no Google here looking for things up on the internet can be a chore. The bathroom is spacious, but there is no bidet. Breakfast is on the second floor, with a decent buffet spread. The spread hardly changes from day to day. I asked for 2 omelets with everything on it from the chef and for some reason, while he acknowledged that I asked for omelets, he gave me scrambled eggs. Otherwise, the breakfast staff are very, very friendly and helpful. The best part about this hotel is its location. There are a lot of shops around it. Nanjing Road and People’s Square are a walking distance. You can also walk to the bus station that takes you to Zhujiajiao Water Town from here. A taxi from here will of course take you anywhere in Shanghai. In a street behind the hotel theres a whole stretch of restaurants to try. And theyre very good. The hotel is a bit old. But for the price, its well worth looking into.

I recommend this Art Deco hotel. It is really like a museum. The front desk is no exception. Like a deja vu of the old China (in a good way). Nice bar, and Chinese/Japanese breakfast. Very well located close to Nanjing Road and the Bund. Opposite a metro stop, so you can go anywhere.
