“Basic 3 star hotel, poor service, but, its saving grace, the location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

What can I say about the Metropole. Well it's a very expensive bog standard 3 star hotel for which they charge £68.00 (roughly) per night in a standard room. Rooms are clean enough and hallways etc are well kept, however, definitely not worth the amount charged on the door. The service isn't brilliant and there aren't too many staff that speak basic English so if you need help your probably better going to a brand hotel ( I did and help was at hand very easily). Overall pleasant enough stay based on the £20 I paid but if I was to pay anymore I would have been extremely disappointed. The saving grace for the hotel is its location everything you need for Shanghai is within 1 km. hope this review helps :)

The location close to the Bund is the biggest plus. The superior twin room was spacious but a bit dated. Despite of the central location there was no problem with noise. Check-in and check-out were quick but not really friendly. I can recommend the hotel and would also stay there again.

This is not a luxury hotel but it is excellently located and priced at about 1/3 the cost of similarly located, more up-market hotels. We stayed 3 nights at a room on the 9th floor. The package included breakfast, hard wired internet and a fruitjuice/soft drink complimentary minibar. The room was clean and well appointed with excellent lighting and a small but adequate bathroom with good hot water, nice new, clean linen and plenty of good quality toiletries. Breakfast was average, but if you stuck to cereal/eggs/bacon/toast ypu could start your day very nicely. Staff were friendly, tho the usual shy, nervous attitude of local staff had to be overcome with some friendly greetings and conversation. We arranged a taxi to the A/P and got a very nice , clean taxi with an excellent driver. For the budget traveller, with reasonable expectations, the Metropole is the genuine article, I would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: The higher quality rooms on the upper floors appear to offer good value

Been there for a week. The hotel have 2 advantages: nice look from outside and central location.
Rooms are big, but very dated and not clean. Beds are rock hard as every place in China.
Cleaning is limited. No wi-wi in rooms. Service is not friendly.
Bund is close by as well as a shopping street Nanjing don lu

Will not stay again.

I and my family found this hotel is very suit for us. It's just walking distance to the majorshopping street and also the bund.

We stayed here for 5 nights and found our rooms were well cleaned and looked a bit modern than in the pitures.

Breakfast: My package didn't included it, but it you walk only 1 block up from hotel to the bund, there will be couple for local restaurants at the corners. Those are sanitary though.''

If I'll come back, I'll choose to stay here. Recommend!!!

Stayed at this hotel for a day in Shanghai. The location is perfect with the Bund area very close. The main shopping area of East Nanjing Road is also closeby. The down side is no conceirge facilities in the hotel and the rooms are dated with not so clean carpets. Since i was there only for a day hence for me it was the best option. Though had problems locating the hotel from the metro station.

Room Tip: See if you can get a bund facing room on the upper floors.

The hotel location is superb. Everything you need is at close proximity. A 24-hr convenience store is situated right across the road. Nanjing road, the Bund, Custom House, and East Nanjing Station is all 5-10mins walk away from the hotel. There is also at least 3 bus stops for the Sight seeing bus (30RMB for 24hrs hop on hop off) close by. The hotel also has a very safe "Left Luggage" section where you can leave your bags if you plan to go to another city or have a late flight. On our return stay from Zhangjiajie, I mistakenly booked the wrong date and we arrived very late at night a day before our booking. Vivian (front desk) was on duty that night and she was really helpful to accommodate us even with the mistake. She speaks perfect English as well. Yes the hotel is a little outdated but all the basic necessities are there. Would definitely stay in this hotel again.
