“It sucks a lot!”
Reviewed 23 August 2010

Just checked in Bodi Hotel. It should be called `corpse` hotel, not bodi.

I got a bargain offered by ctrip.com. Two nights in an executive suite + 1 free night. Each night about US$ 240.

The reception is a small desk by the lobby. Guest handling skills by the manager and staffs is also small. No concierge.

I just needed beer. So I called room service, willing to pay the exhorbitant charge for hotel mini bar (US$ 8). Ordered 5 cans from room service.

After a while i got the beers, and they were hot like hell. When I asked them to bring me cold ones (Im from Brazil, and cannot accept warm beer), I was told that there was none, that they didnt have cold beers.

Then I simply went outside, to a small shop within a walking distance, to get some cold beers. After coming back, when I calmly and personally returned the warm beers to the reception, saying that I would not keep them, a very rude woman named Rebecca, who appears to be the Front Desk Manager, started shouting angrily in chinese, saying that it would not be possible to get them back (i speak chinese, as I have been living here for years).

Service here sucks (a lot!). Location is very bad, except if you are here attending exhibitions.

I cannot admit being insulted by low class and low level, disrespectful and arrogant hotel staff. If you don`t mind, WELCOME TO BODI (corpse) BOUTIQUE HOTEL!!!

This is rather rare experience of using foreign credit card in hotel china.Normally the exchange rate is decided by our local credit card centre,however bodi hotel actually fix a foreign exchange rate for my transaction during check out, which i am not aware of because of the fine print.The exchange rates was about 5% below the market rates which might not be significant if you only stay one night, however for those long stay , please take note of this hotel trick ,which in otherway increase the cost of the stay.
Otherwise the hotel is wonderful, breakfast is lousy though.

beautifull hotel with the wow factor ,black and red decor throughout hotel. had a great time with all the mod cons in room .pressed buttons for lights and curtains would open
tried to make us pay for extra breakfast, as said only one person per room per booking .got it sorted though and paid no extra .Sad thing was breakfast is not good ,cold ,dry and lots of tinned fruit.not worth paying for .Club sandwiches at bar just as bad ,waited ages for poor quality rubish. Best bit was the helpfull reception staff could not do enough for us .Thank you Rebecca and yo-yo for getting us to our cruise on time.location of hotel to city by taxi only 2-3£ each way get staff to write down location in chinese and you will have no trouble getting back to hotel.Warning take extra warm clothes in April as it is baltic at night. Wonderfull city............

Reviewed 20 December 2009

On my last trip to Shanghai, I was booked into this new 90 room Boutique hotel in Shanghai Pudong.

While the room was amazing, with in floor heating in the bathroom, the rest of the hotel is clearly geared towards the "newly prosperous" locals.
Breakfast buffet was a couple of notches below my favorite hotel in Shanghai, The Eton. Great chinese food selection, but all Western items were ho hum.

Staff, though extremely friendly and helpful, lack the pizzazz I found in similar marketed hotels under a Western banner name.

Location is the main handicap for this place, most cab drivers had to call the front desk to drive me back.

Overall, for the upcoming expo or a tradeshow (the Exhibition center is really close), I can recommend this place.
Personally I am going back to the Etons
