“Comfortable Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

This hotel was easy to find because it was connected to the subway station.
And that basement floor is a shopping mall. It's so convenient to buy some snack and more around hotel.
I had a good and warm sleep in bed. Sliding door's bathroom is so special experience with my sister! ^^
But it's not good at location for traveller, so far from downtown, about 40 min. by taxi.

Room Tip: Wood slide door for bathroom!! Be carefull~

I had a great time here. Only small complaint is that the lobby smells of a powerful perfume. It was like this for the 3 nights I stayed. As a gold member of the chain, I enjoyed the club lounge and its views. The breakfast was nice with plenty of variety in downstairs; there is also breakfast on the top floor lounge but with less variety of foods.

The room was beautifully appointed with plenty of space. I appreciated the open-concept of the room and how, if one wanted privacy in the bathroom, you would pull closed the wood-paneled doors -- which are essentially walls -- closed. You can control virtually everything from the bedside controls, with button-controlled curtains.

It is an excellent hotel. Its location is good as you are in close proximity to the subway, though I had a driver for this particular trip and can't attest to its use. The traffic can be a deterrent: though I may have been lucky, we were only held up once in the weekday afternoon in bumper to bumper traffic heading to the Bund.

Stayed at this Renaissance for 5 nights several weeks ago. The rooms are very spacious and very comfortable. Location is quite a way from central Shanghai but convenient enough as it is literally at a Metro station.

Breakfast buffet is extremely large and whilst not amazing it certainly is of a good standard.

Only criticism is that the lobby area lacks personality and seems large and empty.

I've stayed at the Renaissance Shanghai Putuo Hotel on several occasions. Although its location is a bit off the beaten path, it is very conveniently located over-top Metro Line 7 and has good retail and restaurant choices nearby. The rooms are beautifully finished and maintained with many luxury touches. The breakfast buffet is typical for western-style hotels in urban China; not great, but entirely satisfactory. All this comes at very fair prices. I recommend it.

This is a very nice hotel in a new development. A high-rise mall is across the street, a Starbucks and convenience stores are only 1 or 2 blocks away. The room rate was 725 RMB ($US120 - including breakfast) But the rate was arranged by the Chinese company we visited. Rates via other means would be at least $US50 higher. The hotel has a nice buffet for all meals and a Japanese restaurant. The mall has several restaurants, but most of them only take cash and only some of them have bi-lingual menus. The hotel has an elevator that goes to an underground mall and food court with McDonalds and several other food stands. This underground area also gives you access to the subway system. The Shanghai subway is fairly easy to use. We took it to the Bund (the riverfront area) without any problems. A taxi ride from the international airport is 250 RMB ($US45) or more. But this hotel was very convenient for our business meetings.

The area around the hotel is very safe with a nice walking area along one road. But this is mainly a Chinese area (very few English signs) where you get to observe the Chinese in their everyday lifestyle. Local markets and food stands are across the street and a few blocks away.

One problem at the hotel is taxi's in the morning. We had to wait 30 to 45 minutes most mornings for a taxi. So we were late for a few meetings.

Room Tip: You can pay a little higher room rate and gain access to the executive floor. It has snacks availab...

I really can't say enough about how I enjoyed this hotel. I had done quite a bit of domestic travel within China and really needed a place to relax and unwind. I was leaving on another long drive in a few days, so the location was chosen based on that trip. Therefore, it was way out of the heart of the city. Shanghai can take an hour and a half to transverse, even out of rush hour time, so I needed to be on the outer area. The staff spoke great English and were incredibly helpful. Speedy, speedy service in every way. Everything was top rate. I treated myself to a massage at the wonderful spa and was not disappointed.
Also, I booked this on hotels.com and it included a breakfast. I know that other travelers have run into issues with the reservations coming over with this included, but I had no such trouble. Easy check in and check out. Will definitely stay here again!

Hotel is very well-managed, service is friendly without being obsequious.
Fantastic pool, very good fitness area, cloak-rooms state-of-the art, every littly detail has been thought about.
Food might be a small minus, evening buffet and breakfast buffet are a buit disappointing for that class of hotel (with of course respect to food culture differences between China and Europe).
Real weak point for sbdy willing to intensively visit Shanghai downtown is the travel time to the center (min. 30min at rush-hour, as well late-evening). But for those willing to use metro, one station is right next to the hotel.

Overall a very good choice worth being recommended !
