We stayed for 6 nights and had booked a red level room with views of the bund. We didn't tire of waking up to the fantastic views or going to bed amid the neon. Great hotel in Pudong. Enjoyed the location away from the bund/old town. There are areas to walk along the river and escape the noise for a while. 5-10 minute walk to the metro or taxi to the other side of the river - very cheap and many taxi drivers won't accept a tip.
Room very comfortable with fantastic bathroom and huge comfy bed. Judith ensures the red level private breakfasting area runs like clockwork and makes sure you are very well looked after.
A minor irritation was the service in the red level lounge during 'happy hour'. The staff weren't particularly attentive and we felt we had to ask for 'another beer' instead of it being offerred althought when we found them they were always happy to oblidge!
The restaurant Bellagio in the small square beside the DBS building was really good. It's Taiwanese and not Itallian. We were attracted by the hoardes flocking to it after work. Very good value and tasty food. Well worth a visit if you can't be bothered going across the river. Restaurants in the shopping centres are ten a penny but atmosphere?? Xiantiandi has a great buzz. -food prices same as UK but beer expensive!!
Hotel has a beautiful swimmiing pool and area for relaxation. Spa area also gorgeous but separate areas for male/females.
