"Elegant 19th Century Oasis of calm in a crowded modern city"
We will never forget our enjoyable week at the Ruijin. Built as the home of a late 19th Century French newspaper magnate, this is a walled, ten-acre estate filled with towering magnolias and broad green lawns surrounded by the intensely modern city of of Shanghai. My wife noticed that brides were having their wedding photographs taken on the property. As other reviewers say, it's really a collection of several elegant mansions. The Ruijin was a tranquil place to conduct our business meetings. Looking forward to a future stay there!
"Wow all around!"
This was a real surprise. Sure it's expensive for China but WOW! It's a really beautiful suite of buildings set in amazing grounds but right in the centre of China. The room was very large and comfortable, and very well appointed. The bathroom was huge with a stand alone bath tub, and the shower had two shower heads; large sunflower head and an on wall / hand held. Both were great! The service from all of the staff was great and they were always willing to help out when asked. There are some great places very close by for dinner too, with the old town area only 500m down the road. Central and great. Give it a go.
"Quiet location in Shanghai City Center"
No doubt it is in the best location in the city center. The hotel is close to a few tourist spots, like Tianzifang, Xintiande and Huwi Hai Lu shopping district. They are around 10-30 mins walking distance. However the hotel campus is so large that it will take you 5-10 mins walk from lobby to reach the main gate. Opposite to Ruining er Road is the Rubin hospital. Therefore once you are out of the campus, it will be extremely busy with many many people. Getting a taxi from concierge is not a bad idea, but prepare 10 -30 mins ahead of time. In general it is idea location for vacation. In case you are on business and your visiting location is not close by and you do not have a driver to pickup every morning, then you might probably need to think twice. Service is as good as any other Intercontinental Hotel. However since it is located in China, do not expect the same degree of professional and warmness as in other parts of the world.
"Not your Average hotel"
Located in the city center; this hotel invokes a spirit of old Shanghai, it's proximity to the French concession is still very evident in the architecture and design of the hotel's grounds. Staff are attentive and friendly. Room service menu is a little sparse, but dinner was still good.
"Calm and Classic hotel in the middle of city."
It seems located on good location which is close by Xintiandi, but subway station is not close to the hotel. Hotel is classic and antique, and even very calm in the center of city. :) Breakfast place is so satisfying!
