"Okura Sky Bar"
I did not stay at the hotel, but my friends did and had a good stay. I went with them to the Hotel Sky Bar which is accessible to all even if you don't stay at the hotel. Great views, good place to have a break and enjoy a cocktail. Very quiet so, piano played during the evening. 33rd floor, no fancy clothes required, use the panoramic lift on the right at the back of the entrance lobby. Good cocktails for 75/85yuans
"Welcoming and great value"
We stayed at this hotel for three nights and booked it based on the recommendation of a friend. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel. All the staff were very helpful and breakfast included a good selection of food. The location is terrific - in a very nice area with easy access to the subway. This hotel made our stay in Shanghai a very enjoyable one and we won't hesitate to recommend it to others.
"Love this Hotel cos of the people"
I had my first trip to Shanghai and was recommended to stay in this hotel for 3 nights. I must say this is a great hotel because of the service provided. The hotel itself is like any 4 star hotel. Nothing surprising but the service of the staff is fantastic. They are quick to react when comes to solving your problem. I was lone in this hotel but I am not afraid although this is the first time i am traveling alone. The hotel staff came to me when I couldn't find the safe deposit box very quickly when I called the front desk. When I asked them for recommendation of food and where to buy certain things, they are very helpful and explained very clearly. Location is good but in Shanghai, you can take cab to everywhere. It is not expensive.
"Superb hotel with excellent staff"
From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen a great hotel. Staff were very attentive, efficient and friendly. The rooms were spacious and spotless and the breakfast service was equivalent to a top class restaurant. Well located and a great base for seeing all the sights and sounds of this amazing city.
"Really enjoyable stay!"
We stayed at this lovely hotel for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a choice of either a full Japanese breakfast set (see photo) or a buffet. The Japanese breakfast (for those with a penchant for traditional breakfast with grilled fish, egg, stewed vegetables, and an assortment of condiments) were exquisitely presented and served. Staff service was outstanding. The hotel, a former French Sports Club built in 1926, is reminiscent of Shanghai's glorious past of European influence, has an Art Deco interior that has been restored to its former splendour. It is a Hall of Fame with many international dignitaries and Chinese politicians that have grazed its banquet halls. It is also located in the center of the former French Concession District. The District has a rich and charming past and legacy which any well travelled individual interested in Chinese history would really appreciate. If one can find any fault, it would be the rooms, The mattresses are too firm which made sleeping quite uncomfortable. And given that it is late winter, with temperatures in low single digits during our stay, the bed spreads were considerably thin and inadequate. The room's thermostat was also difficult to manage as I was not able to control the temperature at leisure, and I might add that I am not a novice when it comes to electronics. In spite of the above, we had a very enjoyable stay and will most certainly return but with the hope that the issues with the rooms mentioned above are addressed in due course. THANK YOU!
