We chose the Gran Melia for a nice Spanish dinner having read the reviews on their tapas etc. Well, I'm sure there's not a Spanish chef in the whole building. The Spanish restaurant has (as has the whole hotel) the most wonderful decor - it is stunning. That's the hardware, the software is appalling. Our meal was very average, the...

After paying more than $300 a night I find extrange to pay extra 50% for early check in, $ 15 for internet in your room ( in most 3stars hotels that I´ve been lately is free) or $ 20 to use a PC for 1,5 hour. Also it´s hard to find something open around the hotel in the night. Lacation...

Staying on the red level business floors, we looked forward to our express check-in and welcome drink. We got neither. One room wasn't ready and it took an age to hand over two room keys in plain white envelopes. It improved from there, though - comfy rooms, excellent service, great red lounge and a cracking breakfast. Oh, and a pretty...

My girlfriend and I stayed nearly a week in the fairly new hotel. Excellent quality furnishings in the spacious rooms make for restful stay. Enjoyable too the wonderful views from modern, luxurious, very clean rooftop pool and spa. Only fly in the ointment was the high cost of restaurants,for those on restricted expense accounts, so alternative was to head for...

This was a great Hotel, went there for a trade show. Downfall was that there is no WIFI in the rooms, you have to go downstairs for the WIFI. Location is not the greatest either, nothing around you really. Overall it's not bad, but I would try to find something closer to the city centre with WIFI in the room....

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Everything, from check in to checkout was flawless. The hotel itself physically, is absolutely beautiful. Only three years old, every aspect of the hotels design is wonderful. We upgraded to red level. This is really worth doing. It cost us an extra £46 per night. This included free Internet...

My husband and I have just returned from four nights at this hotel. Great initial impressions as were upgraded to a River View room upon arrival (hubby's company was paying, so had booked us in to a cheaper City View room.) The lobby is expansive, light and airy with a bar on one side, the check-in desk on the other...

I spent a few days in Gran Melia Shanghai and I really recomend this Hotel. Concierge, Front Desk and Red Level service is just excelent. Location is good, and if you take a taxi to Puxi it will just cost you no more than 4E. Go to the 28th floor and try the breakfast with the best views of the...

I went to this hotel as it was opposite my company's office. Superb service and location (if you are working in the financial district). The room was spacious, bathroom included shower and separate bath. The king size bed was perfect. Room service was fast and the food excellent. I did not have time to use the Spa or swimming pool,...

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighbourhood Profile
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
