Nice design hotel, good breakfast selection, good spa. However, the location is not on the Bund (nothing beats the view of the Bund in Shanghai). Bathroom is too integrated into the room for my taste. No proper working desk in the room. Will choose the 'Hyatt on the Bund' again for my next visit.

A really peaceful hotel with absolutely beautiful design. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable. However it is the service that is really special - super friendly, very efficient, perfect English and very helpful regarding all request! Definitely more service you would expect at a resort rather than a hotel. Highly recommended!!

True design hotel in central Shanghai. The lobby and lobby bar is blended into one area, very relaxing and comfortable seats, with beautiful library. The sun lounging outdoor area is also nice. The room is very spacious both bedroom and bathroom area. Amenities are very generously provided. Lying in the bathtub and overlooking downtown Shanghai is stunning.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
