Between Zhongshan Park and Tianshan Park in Shanghai’s Changning district, the Mercure Royalton is a traditionally styled purse-friendly property. Just a five-minute walk from the Zhongshan metro station, top Shanghai sights including the Jing’an Temple and People’s Square can be reached in 15 minutes, and the upscale Cloud Nine shopping mall is within strolling distance. Guestrooms feature dark wood furnishings and an authentically Chinese red and gold color scheme, and all come with soundproofing, air-conditioning and free WiFi and mineral water. Choose between Asian and international options at the breakfast buffet, where a chef is ready to prepare fresh noodle and egg dishes. For dinner, there’s traditional Shanghainese and Cantonese cuisine at the R Kitchen, Spanish dishes at the cellar-style Grand Bodega or Japanese sushi at Fuji Restaurant.
In the Area
Join a morning tai chi session in the nearby Zhongshan Park or enjoy a stroll around the lake or through the rose garden. Farther afield, the 88-story Jin Mao Tower is one of the tallest in the world. Take the high-speed elevator to the observation platform for incredible Shanghai views. Stretching a mile along the west bank of the Huangpu River, the Bund is justifiably one of Shanghai’s major tourist attractions. With European-influenced architecture dating back to the early 20th century, the waterfront area is a picturesque (if crowded) spot for a long stroll. Fresh from hosting World Expo 2010 Shanghai, the city has a booming art scene, and the new Red Town district is well worth a visit. See the Minsheng Art Museum, explore the sculpture park and shop in the Joyce Warehouse.
How to Get There
Simple Hotel, which reached a certain age and. You can clearly feel and see it. Quite far from the closest subway station in an area which is not meant for tourists. The rooms/bath rooms definitely need a renovation and the service (room and reception) a training.
Neglected, decrepiteda bit shabby hotel. Not worth its price. Currently in the area of construction, hard to find the entrance. Part of the equipment works badly, untuned TV chnnels. Not bad location, 15 minuts walk to the subway.

Maybe I expected more of a Mercure hotel. After all, the room was good with a comfy bed, a useful desk and a bath. Even the breakfast was OK, more Chinese style than Western but that's to be expected. They did let the food go cold in the Bain Marie. I saw some complaints about getting coffee but I found an auto coffee machine that produced such good coffee that I had 3 cups.
But the hotel is hard to find if coming from Zhongshan Park metro station, partly because of construction next door. I asked some locals and they had no idea. Google maps showed it close but the route is devious thru gates and alleys. Then the night-time check- service was offhand. First impressions last the longest. Conversely, the service when I left was excellent.
So this hotel was a mixed bag for me.
Warm welcome at front desk, staff is very experienced and always ready to help European customers. Welcome drink on arrival (water or juice) is much appreciated. Rooms are spacious, modern, offering free wi-fi. Clean rooms. Lobby is spacious and convenient to prepare yourself for the day. Excellent value for money!
