I spent a week in this hotel and I'll never forget the view from my room. I advise smoker to take a non smoking room to be higher ( I was at the 15 th floor) and go outside on the pathway along the river to delight the place and a cigarette. Smoking rooms are lower so the view is not as good as in higher floors.
I had a room facing the river just in front of the Shanghai tower (still under construction) which will be the second highest tower of the world.
Room is really cosy with all modern facilities needed within a fusion modern / antic Chinese style. The main theme of the hotel is about people life style before and after the renovation of the city. It gives a really nice dimension to the experience as you can see pictures of life scenes a century ago and see the city as it is now. Room has the same style and is very nice, the bathroom is amazing with open widow on the finance city center. You can have a shower with colorful shanghai in sight at night !
Bed is good and helped me a lot to recover the 12 hours flight to get there. The room offers a nice desk with free Internet through LAN or wifi. No need adaptation for plugs.
Breakfast is yummy at the 6th floor with options for Japanese breakfast, Chinese style breakfast or usual continental buffet.
The hotel restaurant offers many different dishes with Chinese, Japanese style. Staff is really dedicated to clients and most speak English.
The location allows you to reach almost every part of the city within an hour. Airport is at 1 hour by cab ( count 200 rmb max to get there)
I'll go back there if I have opportunity to renew and recommend this place for business trips and vacations.
