Staff was discourteous , they intentionally tried to push a bad quality small room to us . When we bluntly refused to accept the small room, and told that we would not stay in this property, they offer other better room, however still on lower floor . Overall a good property but extremely bad employees attitude, pushing bad rooms 1st to customers. Not expected from such chain of hotels
It's central location My room was too small
The hotel is conveniently located in the middle of thorough-fare street for shopping, recreation and dining.
Hotel was well located so you could walk to the shops and the door staff were very good at recommending things to do.. Reception staff were not very helpfull but i think the language barrier is a problem.
The location The rooms are fairly small
Ambience and location Cleanliness
Location and good customer service Nothing
close to nan jin road the rooms, they look old
Convenience to shopping and food.
My wife was very happy with the shopping area around the hotel. And close to MRT station.
Very comfortable stay. Room service was excellent and very fast. Although check out was 12, the hotel was very cooperative and let me stay till 2pm without any surcharge. Excellent staff. Highly recommended. Location also great for shopping in Shanghai.
Location is excellent, staff extremely helpful
Great location. Spacious and very comfortable room. Staff was very helpful.
The lobby is a grand receiving area. The daily treats corner is excellent for afternoon snacks and quick bite on the run. The breakfast buffet is grand and delicious.
Room situation was excellent. Facilities- mediocre at best. The gym was fine but the pool was abysmal. Service- I get that the service in China is bad, I get it. But come on, train your service better. I couldn't get a taxi for half an hour, and the guy outside was trying to get a taxi for me. If they were smart, they would have called a taxi through phone.
Comfortable bed and the room is clean. Staffs are friendly too. If the hotel is located in PuXi whould be better.
I had a very pleasant stay, staff was very friendly especially on Horizon club. My dining experience at Nadaman was execellent mainly due to staff.
Awesome location at a great price. This was more a 3 star rather than 4 star hotel.
Great location. Staff spoke English. Clean, comfortable rooms. Will definitely stay there again. No complaints.
Location, service and friendly staff was very outstanding. Communication was excellent. I would highly recommend City Hotel Shanghai to friends and family. I would like to return to Shanghai one day soon and would certainly stay at CHS/ I didn't like the fact that I wasn't able to stay longer!!
staff are helpful. Location is great.
Good value for money good service good location close to Metro station nice restaurant and friendly staff
The room was so clean.Explaination was written by chinese.english and japanese. I'm japanese .so I was very helped .and the hotelman could speak easy japanese language .I didn't feel any stress.If had the opotunity to go changhai .I hope to stay this hotel again!
Very good swimming pool, good breakfast of Western style The rooms need reparation
Hotel staff were polite and helpful. Conveniently located. Relax and clean. Had good food within walking distant. Will go back again for next visit.
Very good location. Enjoyable restaurant, swimming pool and sauna. Excellent buffet.
Nice modern decor, friendly and helpful staff Bathroom is like something out of a hospital ward
The decor and artwork of the rooms was very stylish and comfortable, and quite avant garde Noise from traffic
Hotel was wonderful, but they had no confirmation of our booking through Booking.com. Fortunately they were not busy so accomodated us.
great rooms large size with plenty of art deco character No satellite tv channels in English terrible breakfast and even though i changed rooms twice I could not find a room with both the internet and outside phone line working
Great location in the French Concession; very close to a metro stop, so it was very convenient getting around. Also, the room was enormous and redolent of Old Shanghai. The breakfast, while ample, was a bit so-so.
We spent 4 nights in this amazing boutique hotel. We were given very special attention and the staff was so kind that we just felt like we were home. The very personalized service we received was an absolute highlight. The rooms were great as well, very spacious, all different (we got the chance to visit them), nicely decorated and very "design". The Molton Brown amenities were a plus. I would recommend this hotel to everyone - my friends, familiy, and colleagues.
Perfect location, small luxury hotel. Ideal for romantic short stay.
.Nothing I thougt the hotel was style over substance, the staff not particularly helpful, it took 4 attempts to get the air conditioning working. The hotel manager does not speak to guests. The breakfast was a disgrace. I will not be rebooking
The staff is so gentle and professional .the environment is comfortable and suitable...I spent I great time..
Nice design, good concept that try to present art and culture of old shanghai by renovate the old building. well trained staff ! they all can speak english well and helpful. So plain breakfast and less choices. Just like continental breakfast that is not the concept of the hotel. they can do better than this by serving gourmet breakfast as the price for room is not low. By the way, the toilet in the room could not be flushed on the last day. One last thing is the payment. I did book with booking.com with USD but the hotel would charge in RMB. this amount converted to my currency in thai baht will have about 10-15% different even I paid by credit card. the hotel could do nothing and insisted that they could charge the card only in RMB currency ( that the amount is higher than USD ).
Design of the rooms is very nice.
the location of the hotel , the bathroom was not so clean
location is good. and hotel itself is classic. food disappointing. also altho room non smoking, the hotel is full of smokers and smoke in the public areas.
All the staffs were excellent Nothing
Very attentive staff Difficult location from which to find taxis
location, very near railway station, various food available surrounding, walking distance to nanjing road. breakfast is not included in the room rate and very expensive, the room rate paid is not value for money since the hotel outlook is not like 5 star hotel
Seems that pics of web are of another hotel or very old and not aupdated. First night received a very bad smelling room, staff came and pumped out something .....unbelievable from bathroom. Day after they gave us a better room. Will not stay there again. Price is not referred to what we received
The rooms were very comfortable and showed great attention to detail from the huge and superbly comfortable bed to the tv in the shower recess. Service was attentive and efficient. On arrival we were escorted to our room and " introduced " to our room and all its numerous facilities. Room service was prompt and well priced.
Excellent. Top location for all Shanghai destinations. Spacious rooms (including standard Art Deco). Outstanding personal service and staff. Home away from home. Delicious breakfast options, al a cart & standard continental buffet. Flair, design and modern throughout. Welcome drinks, special spa offers, many extras etc (ask for upgrades, very receptive). Top of the line 5 star property that clearly offers more then the big luxury hotel chains.
The decor throughout the hotel is luxurious. The Art Deco room was very comfortable and more than met my expectations. The bathroom was huge and extremely well appointed. A lot of thought has gone into providing "nice little touches". Although there are designated smoking/non-smoking areas in the restaurant, I did find the smell of smoke unpleasant.
Staff very available and kind; the hotel is quiet, close to shopping area and places of interest
I really like the door guy, he new my friends name, even though he had not stayed in the hotel for 9 months. All the staff was friendly and the location was perfect. Location
Very comfortable hotel, superb attention to detail, very friendly staff nothing
I enjoyed the room and the facilities. Its very near most of the places I wanted to go to. Transporation like taxi and subway is so easy. I even took the subway from the airport straight to the hotel. I did not like the fact that my room was at the back facing another building. Service have deteriorated through the years.
The location is great.
If you want to use subway, its one block away. Shopping is right in front of hotel.
Nice, well furnished, comfy rooms. Professional staff. Good variety for breakfast. Coffee maker not the easiest to operate. OK location. Difficult to find taxi but ready access to Metro. Not the most helpful concierge.
We had a very good stay in the Swissothel non!
Clean, Modern, Great Water Pressure AC & Heater is very noisy (it won't allow you to sleep at night), Bathroom has see through window so no privacy from the room, beds are very hard, not enough plugs for computers, iPhones, iPads, etc.
The hotel is modern and almost perfectly located in the Jing'An district of Shanghai. It is a 5 min walk to the Subway station and around the corner from a number of great eateries both Chinese and Western. Travel time to places like the Bund/Concessions and Financial District are less than 30 mins by Taxi even less by Subway. Most of the staff speak some English which was not always the case in other 5-star hotels in China. Concierge was well informed and more helpful than the average as well. Another reviewer mentioned that they didn't like the hard beds. I like the firm, yet comfortable mattresses they have. All 5-star hotels in China provide you with two bottles of drinking water per day. Swissotel's bottles were actually half-bottles. This is really nit-picking but I couldn't think of anything else I didn't like!
Modern, clean and efficient. Good location and public transportation, such as the MRT Subway, is just a few steps away. The main restaurant on the 2nd floor offers an excellent buffet breakfast with great international food variety ; however, the staff needs to be more pro-active to ensure an efficient service. On several occasions there were no tables available, not because they were occupied by other guests but because they were not clean. The waiters, seems to be waiting for something to happen because some of them are not pro-active enough, seems they are waiting for instructions, or maybe they prefer to remain in their "comfort zone".
Clean & big room. Comfortable interior decoration. Attitude of staff in reception isn't like 5 star hotel. Not enough hot water to take bath.
Absolute luxury. Fabulous bathroom and suite. Nothing negative about this gorgeous place.
1 night stay before heading to Beijing. Great facility and restaurant. The hardest bed on which I have ever slept. Very uncomfortable. Like laying on a flat board.
A beautiful, luxurious room.
big room a bit old fashined needs an uplift. there are better hotels and prices
The staff were all very friendly I would like more vegetarian food
Weight room was spacious, with new equipment and quite. The treadmills have nice TV's mounted on them with many English Channels. They had a nice Jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna in the locker rooms. The pools was nice. View from the room was spectacular. The prices at the Spa were ridiculous. Even though we had 200rmb per person off vouchers, it would still be highway robbery at those prices. If you know Shanghai well, you can get a classy 5 star massage for half the price.
Luxury and Class Nothing
The room smelt a bit like humid carpet. I missed having a small coffee/tea station in the room.
Great executive lounge, comfortable rooms, friendly personnel. The bathrooms still no separate shower and very small
should be free no $21/day
the people working there really try their best and the service is excellent.
Closed to city center. Staff friendly. Have to modernize furniture of the room.
- Good breakfast selection Oldfashion shower
spa was very nice and all staff were extremely helpful - definitely a pleasant place to be based out of, and a very central location for such a big, spread out city. lobby slightly dated, but possible it was just Chinese sense of decor. Recommend signing up for breakfast package, as we did not and ended up paying $50/breakfast for 2 which is ridiculously expensive over there
the room was very comfortable - perfect location for exploring around shanghai. only stayed 1 night as a stop over before continuing on my journey, but gym was very good. i arrived at around 9am - normally check in is at 2pm; i asked if they could accommodate me; they said they could, but i would have to pay half a day extra!!! i have done this before at other hotels and never been an issue. also, first check in counter the staff said no room available so i waited an extra half hour and spoke to someone else who said there was a room available! crazy! also rooms looking a bit dated now, but otherwise comfortable; and yes i did pay the extra half a day! :(
Location and convenience to subway and expressway. The shower was the worst that I had experienced in many hotels and that water smelled foul. It was impossible to regulate the water temperature. If I had more time I would have switched rooms.
The location of the hotel is good. The pictures shown in bookin.com website is different from waht we got. the rooms needs refubishment.
Modern, great service,, good food and wine. Convent to city and shopping. I will stay again.
Location, price/quality, gourmet corner! Room service comes very early (7.00-8.00 in the morning)
Personalet var høfflig og behjelpelig med ulike spørsmål vi hadde, bestilling av taxi, åpning av dører osv. Personalet snakket også mye bedre engelsk enn det vi hadde forventet ut fra andre kommentarer på hotellet. God frokost med mye forskjellig varm og kald mat. Gratis internett- tilgang fra rommet. Stort og renslig rom med stillegående aircondition. Treningsfasiliteter og mulighet for massasje ol. Gangavstand til gamlebyen, som var veldig koselig! Det eneste vi savnet var grovt brød og større utvalg av pålegg til frokosten, men vi klarte oss fint med det utvalget de hadde. Vi måtte betale et depositum på rommet første dagen som var et høyere beløpe enn den totale prisen for hele oppholdet, og dette skulle vi få tilbakebetalt først noen uker etter vi kom hjem. Dette gjorde at vi fikk mindre penger å rutte med på ferien.
Its location in Kowloon: close to all major shopping, traveling out, walking,view fron the window and outstanding stuff. No, I liked every thing
view, location lack of hairdryer in 5 star hotel?
Well styled in keeping with period of building
great location, rooms absolutely ok, especially the ones with a river view. The french named but chines produced red wine (in the minibar) was ridiculuously overpriced and among the bottom 5 wines I've ever tasted. The cheese platter (room service) was so poor it was laughable, again insanely overpriced.
Fabulous views of the Bund and Pudong, the soft bed! (a rarity in China)
Very central location, polite staff and the view of the city. I always feel safe in this Hotel.
Staff very helpful, polite and cheerful. Most spoke some english, particularly at reception. Hotel in the grand art nouveau style. Nice feel. Permanent bad drains smell in lobby area. Tried the two main restaurants, adequate only. Bar food fair. Breakfast very good. Incessant works, both in and out doors disturbing.
The front staff was very helpfull. they work dard to understand the guests requests. The internet business office. You should drastically improve it or get rid of it altogether. It is unbecoming of you.
View from window For check-in they required a deposit (extra to room charge). In receipt the currency is not indicated (USD or RMB?)
I enjoyed staying at the hotel very much. I had problem with my key. It did not work and I had to wait for someone coming up to replace the key.
Revovation so main entracne was closed during my stay
the location, the staff and the amenities, most of all the hotel is very modern there was an odor emitting from the bathroom and the water was blue and rough. needed bottled waterto brush teeth
Eton hotel (Shanghai) is located at a convenient location, there is a sub-way station opposite the hotel, a 24 hours convenient store next to the hotel and it is not too far from Pudong airport. More important, it is value for money. The receptionist does not accept to the offer price "USD 80.00" as booked, I have complaint to the "officer" and finally they agreed to the price. The check-in took around 15 minutes though I am the only one checking in during that time.
Beautiful view of Pudong from our big and luxurious room on 30th floor Airco was broken, but we realized too late to have something done about it.
Excellent room and facility, nice view and location, very clean and comfortable, also reasonable rates Free in-room internet and sooner the nearby construction is completed will be better.
Location - ten mins from Subway, five mins to the bund Old and tired hotel, behind main street with smokey rooms as they can not offer non smoking room
Location Old and worn rooms.
Location is good. convenient for travel not like a 4-star hotel at all. small room and beddings look like has been used for ages.
Location is the best in Shanghai tour. Close to Nanjing East subway station(Line 2, Less than a block away from the Bund boardwalk (to see Pudong skyscrapers). Restaurants, Shops and stores all in walking distance. Excellent bathroom. Not many staffs can speak English.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Near the Beautiful scenery of the river. Quiet, but not far from restaurants or CBD. Nice staff bed size. Not that near subway station
nothing but location Everything but location. Staffs are horrible and rude. Room is not clean and dark. It's loud when I should sleep - I heard staffs are talking each other on the hall. Blankets are all over the floor on the hall - hope they didn't use it for my bed.
Location We booked a superior nonsmoking room that was listed as one King and two single beds. The first room we were shown stunk of smoke/only two single beds. The second room was not smelly but had one king sized bed. The hotel refused to provide a rollaway.
