This is a average hotel with a reasonable location to the Tongji University subway station on line 10. This makes getting to the center city (Bund) very easy. But, it is a tricky place to stay if you are a westerner. Not many people spoke English, though the front desk had someone who could speak, room service, house keeping, etc....

Unfriendly reception until the end. Rooms that look like from the 80s. Very thin windows, you can hear all the street noise. Only a smoker room, even after days not able to give me a non-smoking room. Breakfast hardly eatable for Westerners. Ok, there were eggs. Thanks. Cleaning ladies came in even when you are still sleeping, starting to clean...

Good Day and I was sorry to open up your comments this morning and read are short failings. This hotel is part of the leading mid-scale lodging chain in China, but this hotel is yet to be fully renovated (hence the low room rates). The location is good for Tongji & Fudan universities and local transportation. Some rooms are in...

The hotel is situated by the Xin An river with great view. Very spacious and nicely decorated. Room is big and comfortable. Breakfast is superb and always topped up . Definitely recommend it! Will go back again.

Hello Cambridge and sorry for so late a response, I missed you. You may have written your review on a different MetroPolo hotel as this location is not next to any river and is the oldest in our chain. I do thank you for staying MetroPolo Hotels on your visits to China and we will have 10 open in Shanghai...

The service is good, cleaning and reception. By the way, the rooms are really outdated: never been to a so vintage room lol. The furniture is essential but useful, the bathroom is clean (and this is the important thing) but essential and really old. They change daily towels and stuff. The windows are too thin, so if you have a...

Greetings Alfredo and thank you for staying MetroPolo while in Shanghai. MetroPolo is China's leading mid scale lodging chain. Your observations are quite correct that the rooms and bathrooms are old and dated at this location as we are awaiting the renovation shortly. Your comments about good staff at reception and cleanliness throughout the hotel are good to read along...

Even though I had a reservation for 4 nights at this hotel, when I arrived at 7pm from the airport (after a 17 hour flight) I was told they had given my room away at 6pm. This was despite the reservation being made by the director at Tongji University. Apparently they needed payment for the room by 4pm even though...

Thank you for choosing a MetroPolo hotel China's leading mid market lodging brand. I regret and am so sorry for your mistreatment upon arrival. This hotel is our oldest in the brand and is due for a renovation later this year, particularly the guest bathrooms that you mention. This is one reason our prices are still quite low, and we...

Thanks for staying MetroPolo when visiting Shanghai. This hotel is new to our chain of midscale lodging and will see a renovation during 2015 that should please our guests. Glad you enjoyed MetroPolo plush bedding and the MetroPolo east-meets-west-breakfast buffet. Better than that your comments about friendly and caring staff made my day. There are 6 MetroPolo hotels now in...

Overall, this is good value hotel with quite cheap rates. It has many problems however these should be expected considering that you don't pay much at all. The entrance of the hotel looks quite rich, I believe that's why we forget how much we payed, and then were surprised when we found some of the services lacking. Location: The hotel...

Greetings and thank you for your business. This hotel is transitioning to the mid-scale MetroPolo brand for great value in lodging. To belong to MetroPolo the hotel must implement several new standards and procedures over these next few months. The MetroPolo Breakfast Buffet is being introduced, and it will be of a higher quality with a few more International items...

This hotel is close to Tongji University. If your business is at this university the hotel is ideal. The hotel is also close to a Subway station (line 10) and it is just 8-9 stops away from the busiest shopping street in Shanghai (Nanjing road). The room is clean with all necessities, good value for the money. The breakfast is...

I stayed at the Magnotel for the last month and it was very good if you want a basic room with basic necessities. Anything above the ordinary is out of the question, though.
