“DREADFUL Place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012 via mobile

Arrived at the Shanghai Olympic with three colleagues. While staff was very nice, English was a bit of a challenge. Non-smoking rooms were emphatically requested. Upon entry, we discovered that two of the rooms had not been cleaned. All of the "non-smoking" rooms possessed STRONG odors of cigarette smoke. Ash trays and matches were among the amenities in the rooms. The decor appeared tired. We ended up cutting short our stay.

Stayed October 2012, travelled on business

Very convient traffic, it took about half an hour from Hongqiao Airport through highway. The building is not very high, only 3 floors, surrounded by nice garden. The staff know little english but they could understand what you main. The breakfast buffet was good, but no english menu indeed. Close to shopping centre and Ancient Sights in Xujiahui. I feel the sights here are much more interesting than the Bund.

Room Tip: Executive rooms which face the garden charge more than standard rooms .

Nice clean hotel but very limited English speaking staff & those you can find don't understand enough to answer any questions. The breakfast buffet was OK but dinner was nightmare both in restaurants & room service. No english menus or English speaking staff. The beds are hard as a board but I think this is all over China & no air conditioning made time in the room & sleeping at night stuffy & hot.

This is a typical 3+star hotel in Shanghai. It is walking distance from the South Shanghai Stadium (about 1000m) which is line 1. IT's a little older than most in center city, but it is well kept and the staff are helpful - though they do not speak much english.
You'll have to pay for internet (62RMB/day), but it seems to work well (hard wired only). Breakfast is 78RMB/day - if you want - or you can get the breakfast when you book your room. There are lots of places to eat near by and attached to the hotel (Chinese, Thai, and Japanese). There's a food /convienience store, McDonald's etc at the stadium, which is about 1000m away. IF you are heading to Everbright Conference Center, it's a short cab ride, or you can take the metro to CaoBao Rd and walk...another 1000m. The prices, if you are watchful for the reservation are reasonable for what you get - a workout room, pool, etc.

Room Tip: Chose an upgraded room if there's a special, but all rooms seem to look well appointed.

Great overall experience if price is not an issue. Rooms are well designed, bathroom and overall funcionality are of the best in Asia. If your doing business in Pudong , I suggest either the Park Hyatt, or ShangriLa( for overall service. The gym is small however always empty. Hotel is quiet, very private, upscaled in every detail. Beds are comfortable and far better then typical 5 even 6 star hotels here in China.
Venture out of the building for good less expensive local resturants located in the SWFC. Walking distance to Brand Mall. Take time for a massage at GREEN MASSAGE located in the SWFC.
All rooms are pretty much the same, except for the Park Hyatt Suit which is really a great layout should you need to entertain. The downside is that the Park Hyatt does not offer a business floor, like Horizon Floor @ Shangri-La Hotels.

Room Tip: Solid 5 star experience
