"Lovely hotel. Great people."
This hotel is in the French quarter of Shanghai. It is in vast grounds and is a calm tranquil base from which to visit Shanghai. There was some traffic noise when the rush hour starts but barely audible in the room.The rooms are lovely and airy and also very clean.The lobby of the hotel and the staff down there are fantastic. So helpful and kind. The duty manager at the hotel noticed that it was my birthday during our visit and sent a delicious cake up to the room......thank you again for going the extra mile. If you want a hotel in the centre of the action (the Bund etc) then this is not for you. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk to a tube train but then it is only 2 stops down into the middle of Shanghai. The neighbourhood is fairly uninteresting but perfectly safe. There are taxis available but traffic makes public transport a far more appealing option.
This was my third time staying at the Radisson, our work approved (& work paid) hotel. As usual, breakfast was amazing, service overall was amazing (with the guys at the conciergerie always trying to be super helpful) and the reception with its beautiful flowers (& sometimes string quartet!) was amazing. The only downside on this trip was the taxi service. For some reason it often took forever to call a taxi and I was late several times to places. I know they can't do much as they go flag down taxis when one is requested but maybe they can make sure taxis are already waiting at the hotel' The location of the hotel is also great as I love the French Concession and how green it is. Due to the taxi situation which was also problematic when trying to get back to the hotel, I walked quite a bit in the area and enjoyed it :) (the pictures are from my first time going there)
"Not worth staying here"
Was very disappointed with the location. We had to wait an hour for a taxi and the hotel staff were not helpful at all. We ate in the chinese restaurant and half of the items on the menu were not available. Was told they had no chef. Our room smelt of cigarette smoke, it seemed to be coming through the AC vent. When we complained we were told its a non smoking hotel.
Shanghai was overwhelming for this Midwesterner. So many people and buildings everywhere, this hotel provided a nice respite. The rooms were very "western" in furnishing and size. They were clean and nicely furnished. The bathroom was large with a separate shower and tub. Two minor issues, when one enters your room, you need to insert your room "key" card in a holder which turns lights on. It took me a little while to figure that out. The bed was quite hard, almost like sleeping on the box spring. Perhaps that is common in China' The staff was excellent and very accommodating. The breakfast was outstanding - a great variety of fruit and both western and Chinese dishes. Fill up here if you are not an adventurous eater! I felt very welcome and really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is in the French Concession district which had numerous tree lined streets - very picturesque in contrast with so many of the high rise modern buildings found in Shanghai. The hotel grounds were quite large and contained many trees, bushes and flowers, all surrounded by a large wall. A beautiful facility!
"Lovely hotel and most helpful"
From check in to check out and everything in between we enjoyed our stay. Had to leave early and they provided a beautiful breakfast to go. We had a lovely steak in the restaurant and although not cheap was beautiful
