FAQs about hotels in Shanghai

A Beacon of Modern China

A beacon of 21st-century China, Shanghai is modernizing at an electrifying rate. Nowhere is this more evident than the skyscraper-punctuated Pudong commercial district. The most distinct - the Oriental Pearl Tower - has a ball at the top and bottom and has fabulous city views. A number of towers also twist as they go up – a feat of contemporary engineering.

This side of the city also houses Shanghai Pudong International Airport, while Shanghai Hongqiao Airport is over the Huangpu River in the Puxi district. An area of older and less dominating buildings, Puxi features the elegant Bund area whose varied architecture includes a surprising array of Art Deco.

With a choice of shopping centers and small shops beneath brightly lit neon signs just like Chinatowns across the world, Shanghai shopping is fantastic.

Other must-see Shanghai attractions include the wonderful Shanghai Museum and the Jade Buddha Temple. For a break from the hustle and bustle, head to the Yuyuan Gardens, the beach or peaceful Zhujiajiao Water Town in the west.

Whether you choose one of the Shanghai hotels, apartments or hostels, take time to go to a tea house, a Chinese institution. Also worth sampling are Shanghai hairy crab, steamed dumplings and the freshwater fish so popular with locals.

    It is a super safe and clean city.

    It is a super safe and clean city. I can walk down on the street without worrying my safety. The subway system is well established. I can take subway to almost anywhere within the city super fast without any congestions. There are variety of restaurants satisfying almost all your needs. Advice to foreigners (1) Get a local phone as you'd need for car reservation and other local services (2) Get Wechat pay and Alipay established. Most of local places accept primarily Wechat pay and Alipay. Cash is not a common option. I got both of them set up during the first 2 days when I was in Shanghai.

    Shanghai is a buzzing modern metropolis full of interesting and exciting activities and locations. The food is excellent, though we didn’t risk eating any street food, preferring our hotel and restaurants for eating out. On top of this it feels really safe: as a family (2 adults and our 16 year old daughter) we walked all around the French Concession, the Bund and from our hotel to one of the art districts and never once felt threatened or unsafe. With the help of Alipay and its DiDi taxi app we were able to get about the city with ease when we eventually got tired from walking. Overall, we found Shanghai to be a very welcoming and accessible city and we would happily come back to visit again.

    Shanghai is a very interesting city under different point of view. It offers the opportunity to live different type of lifes. In ther day there are many attractions to see: The mandarin Wu house (great place to take a rest), The incredible skyscrapers, the long river promenade, the bar and restaurant at night. Was surprised me the most was that you can visit most of the intersting places by feet or by metro.

    Shanghai Tower a must.

    Shanghai Tower a must. Very easy to get around Shanghai by Metro, Bus, Maglev or Didi (Uber) and Taxi. From Airport take the metro to your closest station of accommodation and use Didi to your Hotel if not shuttle is available. Make sure you offload the Alipay app on your phone and link your local credit card on the app. No other credit cards accepted. Use google translate to communicate. It is so safe and beautiful and you could walk anywhere. Do fairy trip on the Bund or boat cruise. Bookings done at the bund. The Yu Garden a must. Visit Zhujiajiao Water Town. Book through trip advisor or go on your own.

    As a Shanghainese, this time was my first time staying there. It surprised me. Okura Garden Hotel Shanghai is very famous for its food, butter cookies & service. The room is super clean, detailed and comfortable. If you want to know more about Shanghai, traditional/ modern. it’s definitely among the best hotels in Shanghai. The location is perfect, the metro is nearby. I am super impressed. Also, thank you Miss Li Hua Feng 李化凤(receptionist) for the professional service.

    Relatively close to the airport. Free transfer to the airport from the hotel, even in the early morning. They prepare a small breakfast to go (milk, boiled egg, some bakery), that was really nice. Staff super friendly, quite room, large and comfy bed. Good choice for a short stop over in Shanghai. Small shop at the hotel, possible to buy some basic stuff, drinks, cup noodles, shampoos etc. But otherwise there's nothing around the hotel, no shops, not cafes.

    The hotel is in the most interesting and busy area of ​​Shanghai. Both the concierge part and the reception part are 10. Very humane and close treatment. One of the best hotels without a doubt. 100% recommended. In the face of any slight inconvenience they are here to help, even with personal means. The Chinese are special. My greatest respects.

    Breakfast buffet is excellent and also offers some local cuisines. Room service is great. The hotel also offers shuttle services to Disneyland, airports, and the nearest Metro station, which is great if you wish to go to Disneyland or sightseeing in downtown Shanghai. But do make sure to reserve for seats to avoid not being able to get on.
