    Superb

    Given that we were delayed in Shanghai as a result of the volcanic ash the hotel staff could not have been more helpful agreeing to extend our stay each time we asked. We had the Club Room which we would strongly recommend as good value for the evening happy hour, canapes and free internet access.

    The Chinese restaurant on the 2nd or 3rd floor can get very roudy.

    Very warm and friendly staff, great location and near restaurants, all sites in Shanghai and the metro, we moved from another hotel we did not like to this hotel. Glad we did.

    Bathrooms are small, food prices are a little High ($22 USD) for breakfast per person... other than that we loved it all

  • 6.2
    Good

    The cost of drinks and food at the bar and restaurant were outrageous. $14 for a Corona and the buffet breakfast and lunch was poor at best for a $30 meal.

    Fabulous

    It's location is great if you want to go shopping and it has nice views of the Shanghai Skyline.

    It's staff is kind, but not very helpful. They charge a big amount as a "safety deposit", in my case they charged more than the full price of my room (almost doubled it).

    Staff v friendly - concierge brilliant (wrote down names of destinations for taxi drivers for us). Spa was amazing - Maggie was fantastic. Room was great - loved the detachable shower.

    Bed was hard as nails - awful!!!

    I was called after 11pm by the front desk who were letting me know that I was able to check out after 3pm the following day. My room key failed constantly

    Very good

    Nice hotel, great location right in the middle of everything. Amazing view from the room over looking the pearl oreintal tower. Staff in the spa area was very nice.

    Thought website indicated free wifi/internet found out when we arrived that the price paid did not include this and a few other ammenities. Upon arrival was greeted very warmly and then told if we wanted the extra services it would cost us around an extra $500 + (us dollars). Personally I opted out of that when there are coffee shops around corner where you can get free access compared to that expense or the pay-per- use option which is about $20 a day.

    Great hotel with an excellent location. We also had a welcome massage there which was very reasonably priced. Concierge very helpful and spoke good english.

    Would have been nice to have a swimming pool - but that was our only negative.

    Good

    Location & services, good size room

    I am very disappointed that the shower was faulty and I could not take shower before I leave and I had no time to complain about it. It was disaster for me to leave without taking shower after paying so much money.

    Good

    I am impressed with how the hotel actually offers free choices of pillows from their menu list to ensure the guests' sleeping comfort. The room is tidy & clean. Good location, easy access to most of the city's tourist attraction.

    The room is quite clean but carpet is old and the room smells a bit musty. Hotel does not include free internet; very disappointing, considering the amount we paid for the room. Stayed at a lot cheaper hotels before, and they offer free internet.

    I enjoyed the hotel it was fair. However the location whilst good for shoping was the worst I have stayed in because of beggers, prostitutes, and criminals wanting to take you to a girlie bar and charge rediculas prices and threaten death if you dont pay. Chinese govenment must stop this or tourists will stop visiting china. Jim Wilson Australian.

    Good

    The location is okay.

    The breakfast facilities from the business lounge were not good. Not enough seats, also available seats were uncomfortable.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The location and the friendly staff is a Plus.

    The room I picked via booking was surprisingly the oldest the hotel could offer. I felt like in a cheap Chinese owned hotel when I entered my first room. I asked for a more newer one and finally had to deal with a 300 rmb additional charge per night which I even had to negotiate down from 380 rmb called as first offer. Not so nice. The rest was O.K. and the stay was acceptable. Nice gym.

    Good

    Location.

    Standard rooms are shabby, and could do with an upgrade. I have earlier stayed in Executive rooms, which are much more agreeable. Basic breakfast selection.
