Well, this hotel passed her inspection.. our first choice to stay whenever we visit.. our last visit is April 2015 i think..

Except the bath room is very small, on the whole the hotal is clean and tidy. It ia very easy to find a lot of eating places and shopping. The hotel is close to underground train and convenience to move around within the city.

Unlike the quirky reception at the hotel lobby & restaurant, the room was dull and boring looking. But that is just abt the most negative thing you can find here! The rest of the hotel is amazing. Price is sure worthwhile for its location. I love the open closet concept as it is the best way to air my clothes.... More

We stayed 4 nights at the hotel. Location was decent, room size decent, beds were comfortable, hotel decor was chic. Bathrooms were a little on the small side though.

We have been visiting Shanghai for the 7 years and always go to the Penta. The atmosphere, food and staff are excellent. Nothing is never too much trouble and with the new young team in charge it is better than ever. We had a great 8 days and cant wait to go back there again next year. Well done.

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
