Located near to 2 mrt line, easily take us to most part of shanghai. 2 convenient stores & 1 mini mart nearby. No restaurants but got couple of cafes. Hotel restaurant foods do not taste good, we ordered fried rice and one soup with rice to take back to our room, both tasted bland. Room is comfortable, good for 2 to stay. Pillows are too soft though. Love the Japanese style bidet toilet, it is a big bonus. Walking to bund is slightly more than 1km. Definitely worth the walk. Price is very reasonable during our new year period.
The hotel is nicely decorated but we were immediately put off by the unfriendly service upon check in. The staff took forever with our passports and when I asked the English speaking concierge for xiao long bao recommendations she couldn’t give us any! That was a surprise considering it’s a Shanghai delicacy. She also smelt like BO and had dandruff on her uniform with dirty sneakers. The room itself is nice and we enjoyed views of the Pearl Tower from our room om the 7th floor. Initially our TV didn’t work but we contacted the front desk whi fixed it while we were out for the evening.
My family of five recently stayed at the Golden Tulip in order to be close to The Bund for New Year's. In fact, we were originally going to stay at the Radisson Blu but changed our ressie after reading the positive reviews on TA. We had one Deluxe Room and one Family Room. Both were pretty large and had good configurations - the Deluxe being a little more, well, Deluxe (but only room for two people). The family room had a small kitchen and dining table, which was perfect to have take-out meals or snacks. The odd thing about the Family Room was that it had a separate toilet at the front of the room by the door and then the shower and sink in another room. This was convenient for multiple people getting ready at the same time, but we kept going in the bathroom before remembering that there was no toilet in there. Oddly, the shower had the dreaded glass wall into the bedroom, which seemed like a very odd choice considering that this was supposed to be a family room. Even though you could push a button and the glass became opaque, you could still pretty much see through it. I really hate those glass walls since it's awkward for most families. The location could not be better. We had a great view of The Bund from our room and it was a very short walk to get there. We ate dinner at the restaurant one night thought it was really good. Service and food were great, so I'd recommend it. Especially since there are very few choices in the immediate neighborhood except convenience stores. In the lobby, there was a ping pong table and a basketball hoop-type game, which was fun. The hotel is not lavish or overly luxurious, but was stylish and clean. The front desk staff were a little curt upon check-in but proved to be quite accommodating and nice during the course of our stay. Last, we never heard a peep from the other rooms. It may be one of the quietest sleeping environments I've ever been in. It was awesome. In conclusion, I would highly recommend this hotel for its location, perfectly acceptable rooms, peaceful and laid-back feel and overall value. Would stay again when in Shanghai.…
The interior is much nicer than the exterior. Location wise this place is convenient as you can get in terms of transportation , but kind of lacks in terms of good food nearby. The rooms are clean, toilets are high tech , beds are comfortable but the pillows are too soft so you might want to get an extra one
It is a wonderful hotel in a nice location, just 1 min walk to metro station, 5 min to Bund, 7 min to East Nanjing road,... The staff are really kind and helpful (although they cannot understand English well, they try their best to help you). We had a chance to get a free upgrade to a deluxe king room free of charge. The room was extremely clean with a modern bathroom and city overview was great from the 7th floor.
Good location closed to the Bund. close to bus and train station. Front desk was efficient and also kept my courier packages for me. When I booked this hotel I was informed of the environmental aspects of the hotel not providing toothbrush/toothpaste/ comb. But I didn't realise that included shower gel/shampoo/conditioner. The hotel provided one bar of soap, but had travel size sets of shower gel/shampoo for sale. so advice to bring your own shampoo and shower gel unless you want to pay exorbitant prices for minis. Otherwise comfortable room.
Stayed for 4 nights in the hotel. Was given a free upgrade. Room was extremely spacious and clean. Design was modern and chic, tastefully done. Only thing is it was located on second floor. Without the blinds down in the toilet, I can see the roads in full view. The bed was extremely comfortable. Conveniently located. There are convenience stalls within walking distance around it. Train station is about 5mins’ walk. There are some Malls around, including wholesale now. I attempted walking back from the bund, it was a nice walk and very peaceful in the night. In terms of service, I felt could be enhanced. Breakfast was ok, though I liked the dining area. Overall, I had enjoyed my stay. Will stay again if I next come here.
Rooms modern and good. Wash rooms big and nice. Stayed in the deluxe category room. Breakfast was good. Location good 10-15 min was to nanjjng road. Only negative point not a full service hotel, if you need water or anythjng you need to visit the reception your self to collect. No potter service to transfer luggage to room. Else everything good.
A quick 5-7 minute walk to central bund area in Shanghai, this hotel was definitely worth the money. Large rooms, designed with french chic flair... walk-in closet, separate seating area in each room. There were some coffee shops, a spa and some convenient stores within a two minute walk from the hotel making it rather convenient. Couple of negatives- long check-in experience, with staff that was at best cordial. One bug Resteraunt that shut at 9pm with no facility for room service through out the day. While we had heard that China is not so high on service and hospitality, this was the only hotel where we actually experienced it. The most infuriating and humiliating part of the experience was when the staff accused us of ‘taking’ ONE stupid mini towel from one of our five rooms. We later realised that their house keeping staff clearly didn’t do a good job of checking the rooms. Without intimating us, they escalated the issue and emailed our booking agent back in India. This was day 2 of our 3 day stay. When I tried to inquire at the front desk about what the fuss was all about, they said they had re-checked the rooms and nothing was missing. What an unnecessarily dramatic reaction, and to top that it was appalling not a single apology was meted out to us for this behaviour. All in all, a strictly okay experience. Given the location, I think there are better options around. …
It is in an Excellent location . Close to the bund. Nice size room with comfortable beds. Very clean. Good selection at breakfast of Asian and western food. The only downside communication, their understanding of English is not very good. In hindsight should have tried Google translate.
