Check in and check out were very acceptable; my reservation was acknowledged but as in all of China, your passport and visa have to copied and kept on file. On checkout, I had requested a taxi to the airport which was promptly on time and the bellman (more like security) helped with my bags without me asking. The taxi driver...

Centrally located for Nanging road ,the bund , yu garden market and city god temple,Xintiandi and many other places. The views from this hotel are outstanding;particularly overlooking the bund ....

You know a hotel is bad when you leave without refund the following morning after arriving. The place may have been a 4 star hotel 50 years ago but is now a decrepit building that is just not worth stepping into. Paint is peeling off the walls, ceiling tiles are missing or falling apart, furniture in our room was broken,...

This was my first hotel in Shanghai and I'm trying hard not to consider it a dump. The beds are old and hard. Carpets are stained. Hallways smell like smoke. Breakfast is ok. Bathrooms not very clean. Lobby furniture is uncomfortable. Internet accessibility wasn't consistent.

I have stayed in many hotels in Shanghai and this was one of the worst one. The hotel, even though it says it got renovated in 2008, it looks so old and outdated. The sofas, carpets and furniture looks like they have not cleaned since they were installed. The tables are so sticky and disgusting. You don't want to seat...

Near the subway station it takes 5 minutes on foot. On the way there are market, so walking way is always crowded. Wide room and slight old, but big LCD TV in the room and WIFI is available. Price is reasonable for business using. There is no money exchange on the front desk. Breakfast is included and soso. The hotel...

The hotel felt cheap, ugly and unmodernised. The interior had lost some paint and it felt unhygienic. The hotel has about 13-16 floors, but only 2 elevators. So you can imagine how long it took to get up and down! It was only Chinese food at the breakfast, such as rice, some fruits and vegetables, some weird sausage, white toast...

Mattress was collasped so can't sleep properly during out stay. Their gym located on the 3rd floor with three machines but all looks so old and dusty.(It was actually a normal...

The Magnificent International Hotel is located conveniently between two metro stations, namely Lao Xi Min (2 street blocks from the hotel) and Da Shi Jie (3 street blocks). Without any luggage, you can reach either station in between 5 to 7 minutes. The room I stayed in was spacious even with a king-sized bed attached. The bed was comfortable and...

We were disappointed with this hotel. It was supposed to be four star, but it didn't live up to that rating. The rooms smelt of smoke, the lift was slow, the beds very hard and breakfasts very poor. The one good thing was their downstairs lounge area. It was handy to some good reasonably priced restaurants and a 15 minute...

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
