“great facility, good value, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

ifc Residence is, as another reviewer observed, a real retreat in the middle of Shanghai's bustling financial and shopping area. I was only there one night, so I did not take as much advantage of the features of the suite that would be beneficial for a long-term stay, but the entire facility has a very welcoming atmosphere and comfortable elegance. Wished I could have stayed longer.

Everything was spick-and-span, quiet, private, and staff was friendly and professional. They have a very nice and spacious lounge area on the third floor where you can get coffee, tea, cookies and use a self serving business center. The building also has an amazing pool on top with floor to ceiling glass windows providing a stunning view of the river and the Bund. Nearby subway is just one stop from the other side of the river. This hotel is technically a members-only residence and offers a private and exclusive ambiance. Overall very good value for money.

I would most definitely recommend this apartment. It is in a fantastic location, I loved the proximity to the shops and attractions.
They have a nice living room on the thrid floor we have breakfast and nice afternoon tea.
The apartments provide all the necessary home facilities like washing machine, dish washing machine, microwave oven etc. i like the bathroom, washlet,separate shower,especially the bath tub it is with built-in TV, you can do the relax there.
I loved shanghai and also loved the stay in ifc residence, it's really a nice experience i ever had.

I had a very wonderful experience here in IFC Residence Pudong. I usually have very high standard & taste for room quality, style & service. As this property was developed by Sun Hung kai property, I've Chosen here as my first project stay in shanghai. it really felt like a home. When i need any inquiry or help, their staff always can help me and serve me with heart, I can feel that i am not only an guest, but a family member. I would like to say, If i will relocate to shanghai for long term stay in the future, it will be definitlely my home in Shanghai. oh, and their facility, the pool on the top floor and their LV garden, so awesome.......

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Facility is perfect. There is a fantastic swimming pool on the top which you can see the best city night view. Good design and layout. Staying comfortably in 2 bedroom with living room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms. Location is good and convenient. It is near the metro and shopping mall. We can take the metro to everywhere. In a word, the price is value for money.

Room Tip: near the metro and shopping mall

It was a great stay with all amenities available. A luxury service apartment fit for its location and proximity to most interesting places. There is a walkway from the hotel to the IFC mall and it leads you to the subway system too. Many restaurants within the mall and it is safe for children to run around in this upscale area. There is a children's play area in the top floors, next to the pool and gym. The washing machine (with detergents provided) for common use is also up there though you have your own washing machines within the suites. Internet wifi is free in all rooms and all common areas. The living room at the 3rd level is a good place to hang out especially when you have guests. There are refreshments available 24 hrs. and they're free!

The only not so good thing about this is the complexity of the audio visual system which is not easy to manipulate. Even their own staff are having a hard time. Although internet was free, speed is sometimes lacking. The rest of our stay was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this. It is located very near to major landmarks and conventions center, as you walk out and go up the roundabout bridge, everything is within reach. There is another huge mall - Superbrand Mall just 5 mins walk away. You can find everything realistic you need there!
