                              Great location, it is only 2 min walking to famouse Nanjing Road. Most of the attractions are within 15 to 20 min walking distant. Friendly staff.

                              English communication is challenging. I never got exactly what I asked for.

                              The location can not be better.

                              I could not get the internet to work on my lap top. Like all 5 star hotels the mini bar is expensive, but just go to Lawson across the street for a cheap drink.

                              The location is right at Nanjing Road pedestrian street and close to People's Square Metro. A few minutes walk to The Bund. Lots of shopping/restaurants nearby. The hotel upgraded me to a Club Room, which was just like new, very clean, quiet, comfortable bed. Free in-room wifi worked well. Bathroom shower had good water pressure & always hot water - many hotels I've stayed at have poor shower heads, poor bathtub drainage, and not enough hot water. A Starbucks right at hotel was an added plus.

                              The lobby women's washroom that is shared with the Starbucks was not very clean. Could have more English tv channels for movies, dramas/comedies.

                              Good location, very comfortable, good value.

                              Everything was excellent except that the recepionist on the day we arrived couldn't even give us a smile. The rest of the staff were excellent.

                              Excellent location,

                              I stay last may also and I had dinners in the restaurant, the menu was exactly the same like this time, you can not eat every day the same food.

                              Near the shopping area

                              Staff are angry and don't smile

                              Excellent location - midway between The Bund and People's Square (which is major subway hub). Really lovely swimming pool (almost always empty), which was particularly attractive at night because the city lights sparkled through its glass roof. Very helpful staff (they even let me check in at 9am, after a long flight from Europe) & the breakfasts were terrific (and included in the Booked.net rate). I'd happily stay there again.

                              Location.

                              Insufficient airconditioning. Room too hot to enjoy a qualitative night rest.

                              English speaking staff, very co operative

                              Not value for money, and simple things like not functioning WC were not attended for 3 days. Quite disappointing.

                              The spa was not working and no notification was given.

                              How come the hotel facade light and logo not on?

                              Very good hotel, very good value for money, excellent service by all the staff we encountered, enjoyed our stay very much. Great location for The Bund and People's Square, easy access to the Metro, free wifi.

                              Location is ideal for Nanjing Road (shopping), People's Square (Museum) and The Bund (running). Free Wifi; Warm, spacious pool; Sauna and Hot tub with TV.

                              Small bedrooms (better room size and design at Courtyard Marriott Puxi for same price). Temperature regulation (to cool from 23oC to desired 18oC did not work very effectively). Spa out of action (being renovated).

                              This is was my second stay at the hotel, and I found it as pleasing as the first. The staff were very obliging and helpful, and all services were of a high standard. I will definitely return to this hotel again.

                              The couch in the seating area of the room could do with a good steam-clean. It was the only item of furniture in the room that prevents awarding the room full marks for ambience.

                              The wifi connection which is complimentary, location nearby to shopping district and metro, near to halal restaurant/cafe. Plus, nearby sightseeing stop which is just in front of the hotel. Attentive staff and well spoken english.

                              I stayed for 6 nights but no room upgrading.
