"An Old Friend"
I worked in Shanghai for four years in an office that looked directly at the Okura Garden Hotel, and in the years since have stayed there now and then when visiting Shanghai. So much has changed in Shanghai over the years, but the Okura is like an old reliable friend. Excellent service, huge spacious rooms, very clean and neat. Great wifi. So many good things about this hotel, including the very reasonable price. And just across the street is one of my favorite restaurants in the world, Di Shui Dong on Maoming Lu. Highly recommend this hotel.
"O why stay here when there is so much better. "
Second time to stay and last. Arrived last evening from Guangzhou and tied and was told there was no rooms with double bed. All sold. So I said I will find new hotel and Manager appeared. Then he said he had a double bed room for 200 RMB extra per night. Strange when five minutes earlier they were all sold. STOP THIS RIPOFF.
This hotel is a well appointed hotel with good service, in the old french club. The staff couldn't do enough to help, the service was great on all fronts. Rooms is clean and have everything you need. Handy to the metro with taxis always available.
This a true 5* hotel, with helpful staff, superb dining room, sumptuous size rooms, large garden area, couldn't fault It. Positioned in the centre of town, this was the best (by far) of the seven hotels used on our tour throughout China. We loved Shanghai and will certainly used this hotel again should we return. We have travel extensively all over the world and this rates up with the best.
"Elegant Quality in Excellent Location"
I keep going back to the Okura Garden Hogel because, unlike some places in Shanghai, the service is consistently friendly and efficient, the rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet, the breakfast is very good, the location is one of the best -- and it has quick access to other parts of this vast city via metro or taxi. Located in an imposing historic building with gorgeous gardens (for strolling/jogging), the Okura has a different feel from the usual big tourist five-star hotel. The lobby is elegant and the vaulted tea room with its extravagant pastries is a congenial place for a business or personal chat. At the rear of the lobby is a glass-enclosed, exterior elevator that gives you a city-view express ride to the rooftop restaurants. The hotel is in the midst of the French Concession. Take a walk through the neighborhood to get a feel for modern Shanghai: a mix of upscale boutiques, malls and excellent restaurants, traditional working class hutongs (court yard buildings), high-rise office buildings, landmark art deco structures, and a park where local folk dance and do Taichi through the day and into the evening. There are a movie theater and a Peking Opera on the same street as the Okura. An excellent alternative to the Bund for those who want more of a neighborhood feel packaged in elegance.
