of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last 6 months and have never been disappointed. The history of this hotel is great. embodied by the frontage built between 1925 / 27 by a French architect and was the French Tennis Club. Now the tennis courts have gone to be replaced with 7 acres of magnificent gardens in the middle of Shanghai! All the rooms are great, which in winter, warm toilets seats are a blessing. The housekeeping staff are brilliant and the views superb. The restaurants are varied with a fair amount of Japanese influence, which is to be expected. The western food in the Rose cafe is varied and extensive with the staff extremely courteous and friendly. The Bars from the Sky Bar on the top floor, to the main bar on the 3rd floor resembling a Club bar with a great choice on imported and local wines. The lobby bar is great for a choice of teas and a gossip!I totally recommend this hotel to anyone.
"Service has improved - great location in FFC for good price too"
I have travelled to Shanghai over 8 times in the past calendar year, and I often stay at Okura Garden. My previous reviews have mentioned a decline in service, yet I decided to try once again and was not disappointed with Okura Garden Hotel. Emailing requests to reservation agent in advance also helped to make the stay a great one. Thankful to the staff for another great stay, and an improvement from previous stays. Great location in Former French Concession near Shanxxi S Road metro stop and Huaihai Zhong Lu.
"Excellent and located in the French Concession"
This is a very nice hotel and staff speaks English, Mandarin and Japanese as this is a Japanese hotel (hence the name). They have two restaurants for breakfast and you can choose either one. I had a room in the upper floor and the veiw was breathtaking especially at night. Around the hotel are many restaurants, malls and streets. Beautiful hotel.
"Great location in Shanghai"
this is a good hotell in shanghai. all you need is there and nothing to complaint on. there is for example two breakfast restaurants one Japanes style and one more western which serve all you need for a good breakfast besides the coffee.
"Perfect balance in Shanghai"
Okura Garden is run by a Japanese consortium, which will guarantee a great service from the beginning until the end of your stay. This hotel targets businessmen, however I found it very convenient for our holidays in Shanghai. OGH is located in a nice neighborhood with several shops and restaurants around, without mentioning the beautiful garden next to the hotel. However it is worth taking into consideration that the hotel is not at the Bund or the Oriental Pearl Tower area. It will take you about 15-20 minutes to drive there, with an average cab price of 40 yuan (aprox USD 6). To me this is a good strategic point because your far from the noise and agitation of the Bund, but not so far as to get there in a few minutes. Airport is 50 minutes away (cab ride @ 120 yuan), and similar distance to Disney Park. I strongly suggest approaching the concierge and ask him for written directions, this will make it easy to take taxis in Shanghai. Rooms have a good size, with all the amenities you need for a pleasant stay. They will provide you with slippers and all bathroom products (typical of high-end Asian hotels). You will have a Japanese-style toilet (always cool). The hotel will provide you everyday with bottles of water and coffee. They have several restaurants, including a Chinese and a Japanese. Great breakfast at the Japanese restaurant. Overall a great place to stay in Shanghai.
