For this holiday trip my agent choosed for us a newcoming hotel in the well known Pudong area: the Gran Meliá. The location of the hotel is fantastic, a short walk from the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Aquarium, the River Cruise terminal, the underground, etc... even the City Tour Double Deck Bus runs in front of the hotel.
Lobby is really beautiful, our huge room had lovely views of the city and one of the best bathrooms I,ve experienced: tub, two sinks, and a marvelous spa shower. The Club Level is very confortable and the breakfast buffet is nearly as expansive as the one in the cafeteria downstairs. I strongly advise not to miss a drink on the 30th floor while enjoying a wonderful view of the city and the river, nor a swim in the pool ... same view.
As spanish citizens we felt the confort of being addressed in our language everywhere in the hotel; we had dinner at one of the restaurants, El Albero, where the cuisine was like being at home.
Best wishes to this new hotel, hoping to go back as soon as possible.
