We stayed as a family of 4 ( 2 adults a 5 year old and 4 year old) for 2 nights at Modena whilst transitting through Shanghai. From arrival to departure we were well taken care of. Our flight was delayed leaving Shanghai and the wonderful Carol Yang helped us with translations with the plane (we are Australian), late check out, early check in, room upgrade and everything between. We knew when we booked that the hotel was away from the bund area, we actually chose to be away from it all. Our children have severe food allergies, so we require a kitchen as a higher priority than location, and Carol even made sure we had some supplies on hand upon arrival. The train station and food shopping is a very short walk just across the road, so all our needs were met. The train was very easy to navigate and well worth the adventure....although we paid for our childrens tickets to learn later that we needed have done that, as all children under 130cms are free. We were only down about 50 cents though...not a big deal.
There is a little room within the hotel for kids as a play room, and my children were happy enough playing there, but realistically its aimed at toddlers.
If going to Shanghai again, I would definitely stay again.
2 negative points, the bedding smelt of cigarette smoke and the only two cereals for the breakfast were both stale, in saying that though there were several other breakfast chiices. A point of note for those with young children, in the room type we were in, a 2 bedroom loft with kitchen. On the ground level there is a kitchen and dining area, second level there is a a bedroom and living room, then off that goes about another 4 steps up to a third level (the loft) with a queen bed and bathroom. When sitting on the second level the flooring from the second level down to the first level is open under the stairs and along the wall, this is about a foot high gap which has no obstructions, so if you had a crawling baby or small toddler they could easily fall through down from second floor to ground floor. You could move the sofa to hide the gap or block it off with suitcases, but had my children been any younger I would have been very stressed. The stairs alone still caused me a bit of stress.
