, Liechtenstein

“Was upgraded to a suite. Enormous and wonderful space I could easily live alone. All facilities present.”

, Netherlands

“Location. Very spacious room - almost a suite. Good buffet breakfast and dinner. Superb foyer. Professional helpful staff. We stayed in 2014 and returned in 2017. ”

, New Zealand

“Excellent location. Very close to metro. 10 minutes walk to Bund. Room very well furnished. Excellent gym and pool. Great central lobby. Breakfast a bit pricey but huge choice.”

, United Kingdom

“Location is great, metro station Nanjing East is within few meters of the hotel. thus, pedestrian Nanjing street is also very close (as well as Peoples' square, the Bund) Rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable (though maybe a bit short for Westerners), everything is clean and well-maintained. Air-condition is working properly, it's not noisy inside, even though it's located in the center of the city. Breakfast is very good, with enough Western options, and of course plenty of Chinese food. Unfortunately i didn't have the time to visit spa”

, Serbia

“I liked the value for what you get. Right in the heart of Shanghai. The rooms are excellent and the amenities are befitting what one should expect in a 5-star property. The pool, and the health club amenities are always what I look for when I travel, this place has them (lap pool, sauna, steam room, hot tub, cold tub).”


“Good location in central Shanghai that is close to good shopping and the riverside Bund. I was given a room upgrade to a suite at no extra cost, but the extra space meant that the room did not feel cosy.”

, United Kingdom

“The hotel is really pretty; rooms and toilets are nice. The gym is not bad too.”
