Stayed here on a business trip whilst visiting Automechanika Shanghai. Hotel is right opposite so ideal if you want to stay close by. We travelled by Maglev(50RMB) from the airport to Lang yong rd station & then on by metro. Maglev is great (304km per hour, takes only 7 minutes), so definitely worth trying, but changing to metro line is not great with luggage. If doing it again I'd take a taxi from Lang yong, but you need to have your hotel address translated into Chinese for the taxis, or you have little chance of getting there!
Hotel is huge & new & very well known in Shanghai. Room was lovely, food in the grill room was superb. We were very impressed. Hotel has a new spa/fitness centre, work still being done on this when we were there, but looked very good. If you like modern, international hotels, you'll like this. There are some customer service issues but think this are down to training as it's a new hotel with new staff. They were all eager to please & helpful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai is perfectly placed for business and leisure. Located in the heart of Pudong, the hotel is directly opposite the Shanghai New International Expo Centre and close to the green expanse of Century Park. Metro line 7 is accessed directly from the basement of the Himalayas Centre, allowing easy citywide connections. The Maglev train station is just a short walk away for speedy seven-minute transfers to/from Pudong International Airport. Construction of the Himalayas Centre started in 2006 under the direction of world-renowned architect Arata Isozaki, who also created the Barcelona Olympic Stadium and Los Angeles MoMA. Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel opened in March 2011. Inspired by Chinese cultural elements and traditional feng shui principles, architect Arata Isozaki designed the landmark Himalayas Center, where Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel is located. A three-dimensional Urban Forest comprising dramatically sculpted columns defines the central section of the Himalayas Centre. It also carries an important loading capacity function and provides an arresting entrance to the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel. Tien Shu Patterned Walls Wrapped around the base of the two towers presents a conceptual interpretation of ancient Chinese characters from the Tien Shu by Cang Jie. Special windows have also been custom made to subtly insert between the characters allowing light to flood the hotel interiors. The Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel tower is constructed in the form of the Yu Cong, an ancient Chinese ritual object formed from an outer square representing earth, and inner circle representing heaven. The cylindrical atrium stretches 14 levels through the centre of the tower. ... more less
