This hotel is now part of Jinjiang MetroPolo chain of mid scale lodging. Thank you for your business. We have 6 hotels now open in Shanghai to select from. All our guests LOVE this hotel's location for walkabout and the metro station. The rooms are spacious, clean and recently remodeled. The bedding comfort is part of our brand specialties, glad you enjoyed your sleep.We are increasing our HSIA band width for you next time. Not sure about some sort of smell and the shower spotty? These must be fixed immediately. Thank you for telling us. The hotel is in the 1931 historic YMCA building, so plenty of charm. Thank you again.

Stayed for about 4 days. Great hotel. But please note that the hotel name is now Metropolo and not Marvel as mentioned. Superb location for tourists. Metro is just around the corner, Line 8 and the location is well connected by bus services too.

There are some nice restaurants nearby too. I had my business meetings during the day, and evening I just have to take the metro to the locations and walk from there. I visited the Bund, Oriental Pearl Tower, and Tian Zi Fang.

Thank you for your business and positive comments about the hotel and location. Yes please everyone take note that this hotel is now part of the Jinjiang MetroPolo hotel brand in China for mid scale priced hotels. We plan to provide superior hospitality at a reasonable price. The next one to open is on Nanjing Lu next door to Peace Hotel at the end of July. Come back and see us please do.

We love the location : around the corner from the metro and a big shopping area, as well as being right in front of the People's square and the Concert Hall.
It was our third hotel on that tour and it was the softest, most comfortable bed with a wonderful welcoming room.
I hope it's our choice for every visit.

Thank you for your business and choosing the latest MetroPolo hotel, a Classiq since it is housed in the historic YMCA building. Superb location and softer beds than the norm. Thank you and we look forward to welcome you and your friends back again.

This hotel is perfectly placed onle 50 metres from a Metro station and 5 minutes walk from People's Square.
The rooms are clean and well equipped with free wifi and all the usual room features.
The lobby is elegant and quiet. The staff were efficient if not helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: All were equally good.

Thank you for your business. Good luck with the All Blacks test matches against The Lions this month. The location of this hotel is better than terrific for the Metro and for walking about People's Square. Glad you found clean rooms, good WiFi and efficient staff. We are transitioning Marvel to a new mid scale hotel brand called Jinjiang Metropolo later this summer and hope you can try others like it on your next trip. I was in NZ recently myself and enjoyed Scenic Hotels your own local brand. Come back and see us

My 3rd time in this hotel. Great location and interior. This stay however, the room has an absolutely terrible sewage smell. Opening the window only made it worse. Huge let down! Also the internet is quite spotty.
If the smell is removed tomorrow, would be back in a heartbeat!

Oh dear me, I hate that sewer smell, so often found around our buildings here in China. Obviously there was a reason and obviously we have now fixed it, so that you can again return to this hotel as you have before with location and interiors. It is my understanding the spotty internet has now been much improved with an upgrade to the entire system. The hotel is becoming a Jinjiang MetroPolo hotel this summer as part of this new mid scale brand I hope you will be able to try others on your travels. Thank you for your business.

Thank you for your business you have a huge choice in Shanghai. Marvel does have a superb location for transportation, restaurants and area attractions. Glad to hear clean comfortable rooms and decent cafe which is in fact leased out to a third party.Really pleased to hear of the English spoken comments as this is always a huge challenge for us. The hotel is joining our new brand of mid-scale hotels for China known as Jinjiang MetroPolo Hotels so we can only get better. Come back and try this or another soon.

After ten days of spotty hotels during this trip to China, it was a relief to return to the Marvel Hotel for my last two nights before returning home. Lovely old hotel in good condition, my room was once again very clean, well appointed, and quite enjoyable. Excellent location, excellent restaurant (though it was booked BOTH NIGHTS for weddings, at least room service was available), the only negative being the air conditioning - but this seems to be true of almost all hotels in China: lots of air blowing around but not much cooling going on. Will return!

Room Tip: Ask for inside room to avoid street noise.

Thank you for your repeat business we appreciate you. We have started a new mid scale chain for your travels around China, known as Jinjiang MetroPolo Hotels, as this is a hole in the lodging segment as you noted.. Marvel has joined us. Glad you found the room clean in this historic YMCA building and a warm welcome back. Being a historic hotel we have a 2 pipe HVAC system meaning hot or cold air, but not both together. At the shoulder seasons with the change in temperatures this is always a challenge. Should be just cold air blowing now, I will check it out. See you again soon
