Grand Skylight Garden Hotel
Ranked #250 of 5,206 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I first visited this hotel in 2007 and had good memories of the hotel and its environment. In 2014, everything is even better.

This hotel is a bit far out of the center of town, but located right next to the Botanic Gardens, which in the last eight years have gone from 'mediocre' to must see.

From walking in the door to checking out, the experience is more like a five star experience - friendly and efficient service, great decor, comfortable bed, excellent facilities. Breakfast could be improved (eg. coffee)

The surrounding environment in Baise Road has also gone upmarket, with many good restaurants and even a cat cafe.

I highly recommend to stay in this hotel.

If you happen to have work somewhere in the area its a good hotel to stay at. The rooms are clean and hotel staff is helpful but the hotel isn't really near anything at all so if you are going to visit Shanghai better stay closer to the city. As a bonus you can also go into the park behind for free.

We stayed here on a recent trip and enjoyed the quiet this hotel offered. It was relatively close to the airport (about 1 hour by taxi) and close to the Shanghai South Railway Station (about 10 minutes by taxi).

- The hotel is next door to the Botanical Gardens, there are trees and birds everywhere, loads of greenery, and an entrance to the gardens from the hotel (although we couldn't figure out how to get through the gate)
- Great Breakfast (although we booked a villa for 3 people, we only had 2 included breakfasts, so we had to pay for the third)
- We stayed in a villa, which was great, 2 bedroom, kitchen, dining room, tv room, 2 bathroom and a laundry.
- Check in staff were fantastic, had us checked in and in our rooms in about 10 minutes.
- Chinese restaurant was fantastic.

What we didn't like about this hotel?
- One of the beds in the villa was really hard (but that's often the case with Chinese beds).
- The fridge in the villa didn't work
- Only 2 breakfasts were included in a 3 person room (as per above)
- Not a lot of restaurants in the nearby area
- Whilst the reception area was gorgeous, the villa itself was a little run down
- Business centre staff didn't speak a lot of English, they booked tickets for our train trip the next day, but it was hard work.

Overall, a recommended hotel, particularly if you're flying into Shanghai and planning on taking a train out (from the Southern Station) the next day. Also great if you're looking for somewhere to base yourself whilst exploring Shanghai, particularly as a family group, as the villas are gerat value.

Rooms r very clean, luxurious and modern. Service is excellent.If u stay in main building rooms r 7 stars and price is reasonable, but villas r not as luxury as rooms in main building although it has full equiped kitchen, washing machine and dryer. Food, I had breakfast it is very good with chinese and international cusuine. Location, it is little far from city center and international airport it takes about 40 minutes by taxi to each direction. I think it is very good for families to stay in a villa and business people in main building..
