How to Get There
It has become a great Shanghai trip staying in this nice hotel!
I will definitely come back again!
(The handsome doorman who speaks great English is my favourite. He’s very welcoming and smart.Thank you!)
I have stayed here twice in the last two years and it will be my hotel of choice when I am in Shanghai. Just across from exit 14 of the metro (People's Square), it is in a great position and really easy to walk into the shopping area of the Nanjing Road and about 20 mins straight walk down the Bund.
The rooms are lovely, huge comfy beds and an enormous bath which is exactly what I wanted after a long flight.
Yes, the TV comes on automatically and plays the same music each time that you enter the room but it is only a minor irritant. The breakfast is pretty good but this is a fairly small hotel so you are not going to get the range of food that you would at perhaps a larger establishment.
The staff are always very helpful and pleasant and speak very good English. There is a Bank of China about 5 minutes walk away but reception will also change money if you need it.
The gym was better equipped than I had expected and the restaurant pleasant for an evening meal if you didn't want to venture out. All in all, this is a great hotel. Small enough for the staff to remember your name and more luxurious that I would have expected for the price.
First of all, let me clarify that this review is only for their breakfast service.
I was just walking around Raffles when I saw the hotel and I was craving for a western breakfast. When we got there, they told us they had a buffet that would cost 198RMB per person.
Oh well, for that price in Shanghai I was expecting a better quality in their service and food.
Some of the highlights of the breakfast:
1. The wonton soup they served tasted to instant noodles
2. The ham was off
3. The orange juice was served in a 1-litre bottle. After two serves, it got empty and it took the staff longer than 10 minutes to refill it
4. Ironically, my fiancée was discriminated for "speaking Chinese". When I came to the kitchen and asked for scrambled eggs, they happily served them to me. When my fiancée did it speaking mandarin, she was referred to talk to a waiter so her order could be taken.
5. The food offering was not enough for the price they were asking. I mean, for 200RMB per person, the offering was limited to a few pastry plates, cheese plate, ham plate, baked beans and Chinese breakfast. Anything beyond that, you had to order it from the kitchen which was a hassle.
6. A lot of chafers, many of them empty.
In summary, not a good place to have breakfast. I can't speak for their accommodation service but given the terrible experience we had with their food service, I will not risk it staying there and have another bad experience
Luxurious room, but very annoyingly every time we entered the AV system started to play a video of the place earlier last century.
The bed was massive and the bathroom very luxurious , the bath was so big it would have needed a two stage entry if we could be bothered. Massive wonderful shower.
Turndown service, which always slightly freaks me.
Doormen were lovely, but reception could do with a little training. We were apparently given an upgrade, but didn't realise there were smoking rooms till after we had unpacked and messed up the non-smoking room ( smoking had been requested by our agent). Also wanted to do online flight check in and print boarding passes, which reception resolutely wouldn't assist us with, but a delightful doorman worked out how to do it with us via means of a memory stick. Not all travellers have access to emails on holiday, and a luxury hotel should do this as standard. Not up to the standard of previous Langham hotels.
Restaurant/ cafe appeared very expensive, but close to some great local restaurants. Didn't try the breakfasts included in the rate.
We stayed for 6 nights over Christmas . First impression when we walked in was wow it looked and smelt beautiful. The door men were very helpful as they were a lot of us arrived together lots of baggage . Reception were good booking in us all in 5 rooms in total. We were given a lovely room on the 6th floor and were given an all inclusive mini bar as well lovely surprise we needed some more coat hangers rang down and received them within 5 mins excellent service. Our room had a terrace not a Juliet balcony which was great we had morning coffee and evening drinks enjoying the view. The room was spotlessly clean there was a tiny bit of damp showing through the wall in a corner near the bathroom but this is an old building and just the other side was a drain pipe but this did not matter to us . House keeping were very good as was the turn down service great lovely chocolates in a beautiful box, one morning we had grandchildren asleep in the room and the housekeeper just said to leave a note on door when it was convenient to us . Bathroom was a great size we never got to try the bath but it looked amazing . Breakfast was excellent big choice egg chefs were good until our last morning but maybe we were too early . We enjoyed having a drink /cocktails in the bar Jimmy was very helpful and friendly, they were showing old black and white films on one wall which was nice in fitting with the hotel .Laundry was reasonably priced and very quick. Location was excellent easy access to the metro just turn right out of the door if you want to go further afield but otherwise just walk . The shopping centre by the metro is good for food on the upper floors. Christmas day we given mini stocking with cookies inside lovely touch. Would we recommend this hotel ?...yes Would we stay there again ? ......... in a heart beat . Thank you for a wonderful stay
