I am not sure if we stayed there in the wrong time because we suffered the stay during the whole period. The room was hot and stuffy. We requested to be able to control the temperature without any success. The hotel loaned us a electric fan which is the first time I have ever experienced during my many decades of...

We booked a superior room and it was certainly spacious. As well as the usual inclusions like bottled water and toiletries, the mini-bar (no alcohol) is also included. The buffet breakfast was great. This hotel is a great option for Western tourists. In regard to metro access, a stop for Line 9 is right next to the hotel. As well,...

This hotel was a very good one. I stayed here for a total of 7 days. Even though it is a chinese hotel brand, it was managed in a very western way. I stayed at the everbright hotel and conference center before coming here. San Want hotel is much better than Everbright...even though I think they're both similarly rated. San...

We stayed for two days while we explored the area. the subway is literally next door, which was so convenient. The rooms are spacious and clean. There was free wi-fi and your typical freebies of shampoo, toothbrush, condoms and razor. A lady came by our door daily in the early evening offering free fruit. We didnt stay long enough to...

Company had booked this hotel for our two weeks in Shanghai. The hotel is extremely far from the Pudong airport, which i believe could be said for most of the hotels in Shanghai. The experience was bad partly due to ongoing construction on the street in front. The construction would go on till late at night. It was also not...

Stayed here twice within the span of 2 weeks. The only issue I faced to start with was its distance from Airport (Pudong). Its really very far and if you are taking taxi during day time then expect not less then 200 RMB and 250 RMB at night. Although with 3 interchanges you can get to the Metro Station Guilin...

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
