Le Royal Meridien Shanghai
Ranked #37 of 5,112 Hotels in Shanghai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Has great views of the city skyline and conveniently located between Peoples Park, Nanjing Pedestrian Shopping street and the Bund. The room provided ample space for two. The arrangement of the bathroom was slightly odd as the interior managed to fit a shower, toilet and bath tub in one cubicle. But overall a pleasant stay.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

We were impressed once we're arrived at the hotel, the atmosphere was very friendly and comfort. The room and the bed was big and warm. The gym very complete. The buffet breakfast was excellent, complete choice of food from all around the world. The location was great too, just few step walk from Nan Jing Pedistrian street, just walk along the street and you will arrive to the famous Shanghai Bund.

Room Tip: We stayed in superior room only but it was so satisfying.

Just the perfect location to stay on Nan Jin Road in Shanghai. Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of this gorgeous city.
I also recommend the Jamaica blue cafe right outside the front entrance, for the perfect snack or just a quick coffee great service, with English speaking staff.
The hotel rooms were accommodating, but certainly not great for two adults and two children.
Book a room is higher as possible to see all of Shanghai.

Room Tip: Book a room on the top five floors for great scenery

We stayed twice in this hotel during Christmas and New Year. Excellent location with a great service. The rooms is large with a great city view. It was approved, we request for a late check-out (4:00PM) as a gold member of starwood. Will stay there again when we in Shanghai this summer. High recommended.

Room Tip: higher floors have a better view.

Room with a perfect view of the city centre. I've been to many Le Meridien hotels all over the world and this one is outstanding becasue of it's perfect location. Good outlets and the Sunday Brunch is really unforgetable. A good hotel for business purpose.

You can't beat the location and the rooms are large with both a bath and shower albeit a bit dated.

Unfortunately I stayed at the start of December when there were big smog issues in Shanghai (flights cancelled) so there was no view, and like a previous reviewer has said the smog was actually inside the hotel. I don't think you can blame the hotel for this though - I don't think any air filtration system could cope with pollution that was 25 times greater than WHO limits!

The breakfast selection was excellent, and the mini bar reasonably priced.

Two negatives though:

1/ The staff do not respect the 'do not disturb sign'. When I am jet lagged I do not appreciate being woken up by a call to ask me when I can be disturbed!

2/ There is no cheap option for lunch in the restaurant. You have to pay £30 for the buffet lunch. superb buffet - good value if it was a dinner buffet, but too much for lunch. I guess the alternative would have been room service.

Anyway - above two niggles aside I would stay there again - just hope the pollution is not as bad the next time I travel to Shanghai!

Dear Patrick O O,
Thank you for taking the time to leave such positive comments regarding your recent stay with us at Le Royal Méridien Shanghai! Our location and our view are two things of which we are most proud! It is unfortunate that your dates coincided with the heavy smog, but we hope this will motivate you to return quickly to enjoy the beautiful views that our hotel does truly offer! We will discuss with our associates the importance of respecting this do not disturb request as we understand that many of our guests are flying internationally on a regular basis. Regarding our lunch options, we do have an a la carte menu in Le Bistrot as well as business lunch set menus in both Favola and Allure, our Italian and French restaurants. We hope that you have the time during your next visit to discover these options!

Have a great day,
Daniel Aylmer

As SPG gold member, we expect much better service though we stayed during the holiday. We got king bed Bund view room though I expect I received much greater upgrade. The room itself is quite strange especially the bathroom. The design is strange and the size is so small, and also the toilet. The room is quite nice with the view. Now the bad thing is, often we smell smoke especially inside the bathroom and the toilet. Please check your exhaust or maybe the air conditioning. Or maybe during our stay, there was someone smoked from above. I was really disappointed to get this room. The housekeeping tried to refresh the room but it did not solve the problem. Or maybe it is the heater's smell which I do not think so. The breakfast selection is quite huge and the tastes are OK. They also offer two complimentary cappuccino or espresso. The recognition as Gold member is hardly to be seen. In another SPG hotel in Shanghai, I always receive either fruit,cookies, snack in the evening but not in this hotel.
Only location and the view from the room save our bad mood. Service should be upgraded to higher class compared to another hotel. I hope I can see improvements the next time I stay there.
