“Good for stay - Having good access to important places”
Reviewed 22 September 2009

I've been several times to Tong Mao and find it good place for staying. It has a good access to shopping areas, business centers and metro station in Shanghai. The hotel service is fine and good hotel staff is an advantage of this hotel. Also it has a big SPA center which is quite clean and unique.

Stayed for 10 days and it was pretty good. 10 min walk to century ave metro station line 2, 20 min walk to the science museum and large shopping area under the museum. Found really cheap meals at the office building cafeteria across the street. Nothing else for eats real close but a short walk ( 10 min ) and you could find choices. The room was comfortable and cleaned daily with turndown service in the eveining. Did not try the hotels resturants but did use the pool and recreation facilities. Stayed in the standard king room w/o breakfast and payed $100.00 USD a night booked through expedia. Only thing that didn't work was the in-room safe. Staff understood english but I had a Chinese friend with me which helps in China.

Reviewed 13 April 2008

I was made to stay at this hotel by my HQ staff, as I have an internal meeting with my Shanghai colleagues at a building two blocks away.

First off, let me state that I'm biased against at Pudong. To me, Shanghai is a city which never sleeps and I don't see why I should stay at a place which shuts after 6 pm with hardly anybody in the streets by 8 pm.

So staying here was already with great reluctance. Hardware wise, you can see the typical trying-so-hard to copy the hardware of the top hotels of the 4-start category. But as expected, the plagiarism turned out to be sub-standard and with below-par software, this hotel simply does not deliver.

Those who'd stayed here may say I'm being overtly harsh on this outfit. But if you know what I'm saying, most state-owned hotels in China face the problems of don't-care-less services and ageing hardware, with cheesy attempts to imitate class and panache. This is one classic example, and although they try hard enough (at least on the surface), they faltered.

Granted nothing too drastically bad happened in the short two nights which I was staying, the price charged for my company's so-called coprorate rates was way too much -- CNY 700! I felt that with with such standards, a simple room should cost no more than CNY400, and I'm qualified to say this because I'd been in and out of China for the past 7 years.

So for the price they charge, and the dismal location they have (a lonely and cold walk of almost 30 mins to the nearest metro station) I feel that we can safely give Tong Mao a miss. Unless of course, you're forced to stay here like me.
