We stayed at Hotel Equatorial for four nights with a team of young Canadian athletes. The rooms, location, service and the excellent breakfast made this a very pleasant part of our trip. While the boys were training the parents took advantage of the opportunity to explore the area on foot. It was a delightful experience and I always felt very...

The club amenities are great. Room can be updated a little a bit small but cozy. Our favorite part was going to the club for snacks. Exercise room is OK but a little outdated. The staff are very friendly. Overall good.

Nice hotel with awesome common areas and great staff. The rooms are a decent size for china and a cool eclectic mix of classic asian and modern but are a bit in disrepair especially the bathrooms could use some freashening and updating but overall a nice room. The food is excellent and the continental breakfast is world class. The lobby,...

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.
