"Traditional Frehch culture mixed with Japanese services"
The Okura Garden hotel is an extended building from old French royal club Shanghai in 1930s. It is located in the old traditional Shanghai Puxi where rich Shanghainess life style still exists. It is in an area where many different types and classes of restaurants coexist next to each other for different consumers. The hotel has Japanese staff at front desk who is billingual and helpful with checkin. The breakfast is good with many choices. The sky bar is cosy place for business discussions and friend gathering with live piano show. Overall, it is a good hotel whete you can enjoy French history in Shanghai and delicate Japanese services.
"Home away from home"
The Okura Garden Hotel is located in a very nice place of the city. Tree lined streets, Shops and Restaurants and many attractions easy to reach. The style of the Hotel is fantastic. It sits on the former French Club of Shanghai. Many art deco items, beautifull Lobby and full of history. Even Mao was here back then. The staff is friendly, helpfull, speaks English and will do everything for your comfort. It is Japanese owned and considerate Japanese mentality is felt throughout the building, Rooms are large and comfortable, clean, very well kept. Beds are also great, maybe a bit hard for some People, however I prefer a firm bed. Breakfast buffet is very good with many Japanese items. We stayed here 8 nights in October, first time in Shanghai. City is just great, friendly, helpfull People, good Restaurants an of course the Okura Garden Hotel. When we come back, we will definetely stay here again.
"Superb hotel historical and modern"
The ancient colonial building gives an incredible charm to the hotel lobby and the room are clean and confortable with a fantastic view on both sides. Service, restaurants, gym and spa are all awesome. Place to be in Shanghai best location.
"Soso spa and breakfast. "
Location is great. They upgraded me without me even asking. But I was really disappointed about the breakfast buffet. Wide variety but tastes soso. No decent Western bread. Sour coffee, I only recommend if you are into asian breakfasts. After that I went to the spa and I was really dissapointed that as inhouse guest I had to pay 50 cny to enter. Well I decided to pay and hoped for a luxurious spa experience but that was not the case. Just simple onsen and only one sauna. My towels smelled like miso soup. I expected more from Okura.
"Not a good value for money "
Have to say I was disappointed. It's not a cheap hotel so I expected a better facilities and nicer rooms. One thing I liked was their Japanese breakfast option, but I wouldn't come back in my next business trip.
