Very happy with my stay at Equatorial Hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very nice and clean room. Also very quiet. I was happy with my stay at the Equatorial hotel and I even cancelled the other hotel I supposed to stay in Shanghai and stayed in Equatorial for longer. Breakfast was ok with good selections. One of the cons was very poor selections of snacks and drinks at the club lounge. I booked a room with access to the club lounge however it was disappointing.

I go to this hotel often. It is well located, the subway is about 10 minutes walking, there are many western restaurants and the rooms are fine. Everything is always very clean and the staff is very friendly. Then only negative is the breakfast. They charge a lot, but all the hotels do. I might sound picky but the bacon is never cooked, the soups are cold and the eggs are all made at once. The coffee, juice and fruit are ok. I buy instant oats these days instead. Their price is always good and I recommend this hotel.

This hotel has great rooms! They are spacious, airy and very nicely decorated. We spent two nights at the hotel as a part of our trip to China. The amenities were very nice, gym adequate and pool small but lovely after a workout. Shanghai itself is amazing and after busy days, it was comforting to get back to the hotel. The only hiccup was the restaurant. The food was disappointing and sadly the personnel spoke very little English so it wasn’t easy to get things right. So I would 100% recommend the hotel, but not its restaurant.

Nice hotel for value and location - but there are pimps trying to sell hookers every night at the front door. I brought it up with the concierge who said there was nothing that could be done. I threatened to call the police to get something done and they became agitated. I can only assume the pimps know either the management or concierge at the equatorial. Please get this fixed. Suggest you may need to fire some people.
