You like something special, on top of the high standard?
As a frequent business traveller, I spend nearly half of my time travelling and staying in top 5 star hotels worldwide. Most of them are nice, but somehow standard, a bit boring, cold or stiff.
If you like to experience something else, I recommend this new hotel in Pudong.
For me it is currently the best hotel in Asia or may be in the world. The hotel has such an outstanding view to the Bund, the Hangpu river and you have the feeling, you can grab the colourful lights of the Shanghai TV Tower at the open multi level top terrace. Fantastic! The atmosphere is outstanding.
I like also this nearby top bar and restaurant, where you can sit down on massive wood tables enjoy creative tapas, delicious seafood combinations and look with a spy glass to the Bund or down to the colourful boats circling the hotel in the bending of the Hangpu river. It is perfect to invite friends and business partners here, to experience special moments embedded in a decent, well oiled 5 star environment and service.
The rooms have large round bended window areas towards Bund and Hangpu. It is a refreshing experience in comparison to the simple square box design, you find so frequently. The whole setup and interior is breathing a decent and luxurious blend of local and international elements. You can find some fancy specials, such as these Bordeaux coloured tanned ray skin elements combined with bronze frames and mirrors in the elevator section.
All is opening up, inspiring, pure luxury and gives you the feeling you are special and inspires you in a relaxed atmosphere. I hate standard and boring set ups, which are so common in the today’s business world. Therefore the hotel deserves my top recommendation for everybody, who is looking for some extra.
