“My stay at Hengshan Picardie Hotel in Shanghai”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

I would rate this hotel to be between Average and Very good. The location of the hotel is good, being near to Xu Jia Hui and Nanjing shopping areas. The reception lobby is nicely decorated but there are setbacks in my room,

(i) The fan of the heater is very weak and does not function though I tune for cool air because the room is very hot and stuffy to the extend of feeling high discomfort. The hotel sent their technician when I feedback but was told there is nothing they can do because my room faces the day sun. I needed to wait for 20 mins and made 2 reminder calls before help comes.

(ii) The location of the shower head is way too high to allow for a good shower. I wonder why the need for such a out-of-reach spot!

(iii) The toilet flush is very weak and takes long time to flush.

(iv) There is a nail on the floor in the room but it seems that the housekeeping did not notice and report to the hotel management. They simply remove the cloth that I put over to remind myself not to get pricked.

Great location only stayed for one night. Room was not ready by 1.30pm when we needed to go out so they kindly upgraded us to a room that was available. Room was very clean, including large bathroom and even enjoyed a nice balcony. all for 68GBP including breakfast which must take some beating in Shanghai. Only downside was 5GBP fo half a pint in the bar

Was attracted by the historic art deco features and great location. Thought that this would allow me to ignore any service gaps. Arrived, staff of three, porter tells me that there's one staff for check in and two for check out, five people waiting to check in and the two check out staff pretending to be busy. It was 10pm! Then the phone won't stop ringing which was only answered by the guy checking in, after a while I realised that the calls were guests ordering room service which needed to be relayed to the kitchen. Executive room was sub four star. Changed my reservation from two nights to one at check in. Shame.

This is basically a business hotel and in an excellent location for Henshan Road. The rooms are well appointed and quite large in size with good facilities and bathrooms are exe lent!
I have not really eaten at the hotel so cannot really comment but the breakfast looked OK - plenty of variety of all different types of food!!
The location is also very good for all the bars and restaurants at the Hengshan as well and the metro is just 5 mins walk as well. The park is opposite which is nice for an early morning stroll when the jet lag wakes you up at 5am!!!

Room Tip: ask for a front facing room to get a park view

We have stayed here a few times. Booked through Agoda and got a fantastic rate with breakfast included. In the French Concession - a very leafy, green part of Shanghai. Great restuarants as well as Metro nearby. A romantic and historic part of town. If you stay in the newer part of the hotel the rooms are spacious, clean with big beds. You must specify one bed or two singles otherwise they will give you two single beds. There is a great DVD shop if you turn left once you leave the hotel - walk about 10-15minutes.
Breakfast is a good choice of western and chinese food. We had dinner one night also in one of the hotels restaurant - also very good.

Familiar with the Chinese hotel rating system, I expected a 3.5 - 4 star quality hotel, not a 4.5-5 star as advertised on its website.

The hotel was within my expectation. Location was good, close to train stations and good bars/restaurants. The soaking tub was a great plus, the tub that size was actually rare for Asian hotels. Although rooms were not on the large side, it was not crammed as a lot of other Asian hotels. Beds were comfortable and clean.

Some drawbacks include: the separate shower enclosure leaked a bit under the glass door, which could be a little annoying; temperature of the room was lower than what American travellors were used to and I didn't find the place to adjust the heat level; no staff was there helping me getting a taxi, which stood out to me as a little odd.

I stayed here for two days earlier this week on business. A very nice, historic boutique hotel. The rooms are good, fairly new renovation in them I think. But the two best parts of this hotel, in my opinion, is the Japanese restaurant on the 2nd floor. For RMB 150 you can have an AMAZING all-you-can eat meal that would cost many times that in Hong Kong or New York. And even better, the neighborhood is wonderful. It's an old French neighborhood, very walkable, and i really enjoyed it. The location is also good for getting to the domestic airport, I found.
