Stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment for 3 nights. The apartment was clean, quiet and well equipped. It contained a good-sized living and dining area. The master bathroom was large and comparable to those in high-end hotels. The apartment is extremely well located.

We stayed here for the larger suites, washing machine, family friendly swimming pool. Booked through Agoda with breakfast included which was helpful as aren't many places open for breakfast. Think hungry impatient young children! It's modern, clean, serviced apartment style. Great kids area on level 26 too!

Neighbourhood Profile
Lujiazui
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.
