This hotel offers quality for a decent price. The rooms are spacious, the bed is good, the internet is free. If you are on business in Pudong then this is a good deal. Wouldn't specifically recommend it for those on holiday in Shanghai because it is not very near most tourist attractions. Further, if hotel wishes to improve anything in the future then I would recommend (1) to add BBC news to the channel selection and (2) improve the shower (right now only a waterfall shower is available, but if you don't want to wash your hair then this is not handy).

Room Tip: 1. Ask company to book the hotel, the hotel sometimes has good corporate rates as I found out. 2. Ro...

I wouldn't recommand it for family trips. Eventhough close to the metro, it is too far for from everything interesting. This hotel is clean and OK for business though. Shanghai is not a great place for tourism anyway

I stayed at Parkview twice in June 2012. The first impression of the hotel is good, with a spacious and stylish lobby. The check-in process for both times were a bit cumbersome, which is often the case in China. However, I ended up being upgraded the first stay, which was nice.

The rooms are spacious, but it turned out my second stay - at a cheaper rate room - had a better room, as it was a corner room with lots of windows and a nice view in 2 directions. When walking into the rooms you get a very fresh and clean impression. The bathrooms are nice and modern, with much space and all the regular equipment.

As I arrived late one evening I ordered in room dining. I had the pizza. I was hungry so it went down OK, but I cannot unfortunately recommend it. The breakfast is good, you will find lots of Western and Chinese style of dishes, in addition to that there is much fruits and other items.

Location is good for flying in to Pudong, and taxi is no more than 100Rmb/25minutes (outside of rush hour). You are quite centrally located but you will need to use train or taxi to get around.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room as they are big and have views in 2 directions.

I am having exactly the same experience as Kopi-O. It is May 2nd, quite warm, but the hotel decided not to turn on the central A/C. It is 25 degrees in my room, and they only suggestion they had was to open up the windows (with tons of noise outside).
On the positive side, the room and the hotel are nice.

The hotel is very clean and well maintained. The housekeeping staff was also very good and thoughtfull- even putting the airline slippers, which had fallen out of my bag in front of the bed for my use- even though there were a "real" pair of slippers in the closet. The room is well-furnished including an iron and ironing board. Good selection of TV channels with a newer HD Flat Screen.
The shower and bath room were clean.

The Parkview is also within walking distance to the Shanghai Metro. You can take the Metro to Pudong Airport from there. Would stay there again.

I was there in Sep 2011 (yes, I waited this long and still feel that I should comment about it) and spent some afternoons working from the room. It got extremely stuffy and hot and I realised the a/c has been switched off. Called the hotel reception about the heat and they sent a technician up to check the a/c. He came and obviously didn't know what the problem was and said that he would lower the temperature from the main unit.

After a while, the heat continued to build up and I called again. This time, I was told to open the windows to "let cool wind in" (there was hardly cool air, not to mention wind! and not to mention the noise from the highway downstairs). It then dawned on me that the a/c was not even switched on! When I refused to open the window, their next brilliant solution was to bring me a bucket of ice and a fan!!!??? They said that the central a/c was not turned on as business travellers are out if the hotel during that time and it was cool outside (it was an extremely sunny day and i could hardly breathe in the room! and I even waited for my husband to come back into the room and waited for him to complain to me before I made that call to the recep).

I found their excuses and lies unacceptable since the hotel room that was paid for definitely included a/c and it was obvious they knew right from the beginning that a/c was off. It was only after much insistence did they finally agree to turn it on and we could finally get to work.

Their staff definitely should be more forthright!

On a positive note, the room was great.
