Great 3 Star Hotel

by fardarrig76 about The Charms Hotel

This was a typical 3 star, not thrills but nothing bad either. The rooms were clean and very accommodating. The buffet was pretty good, offering American and Chinese breakfast. The staff were friendly, little English though. For USD$50 a night, the price was excellent for the location. Nanjing Rd was one street over and the Bund was about a 15/20 minute walk. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. As probably the case in all hotels in Shanghai, it can be very loud if the window is opened. Great Price, Great Location, decent Buffet

We'll be in Shanghai China this coming March 17, 2008.
Maybe we ll be staying at Charms Hotel in Shanghai.

Is this Charms Hotel near to the Train Station (Train Z -goint to Beijing)?

How can we get to the train station from this hotel?



by ellyse

I do not recommend staying near Shanghai main train station. There's nothing of interest in that area, and it also has too much human traffic and pickpockets.
Instead since it's conveniently located on a metro stop (of the same name) on metro line 1, simply stay at a hotel that's near a metro stop on metro line 1 so that you can easily and quickly take the metro to reach the train station.
Charms Hotel is on Jiujiang Lu, about halfway in between People's Square (lines 1 & 2) and Nanjing Donglu (line 2) stops. It's a tad far to walk with luggage to People's Square metro stop though. Look on for an interactive metro map for Shanghai.

Ellyse, that map won't reposition in either of two browsers I tried (faulty Javascript I think) so if someone has trouble with it, try:

Weather in Shanghai in February...

by cynganda


I'll be travelling to Shanghai with my husband and 4-year old son. How's the Shanghai weather in February? Any advice on what to wear during this time? Which hotel do you recommend in Shanghai? Cheap but comfortable and somewhere within the city and close to good food, good buys and places of interests (for sightseeing)?

Appreciate your replies. Have a great day!

Cindy :-)

Feb is still pretty cold.. morning and evening can be below 10C.. sweater/coat is still needed..

as for hotel.. YMCA is pretty cheap - the room is pretty small, but clean.. however.. the location is great.. sitting at the very center of shanghai.. charms hotel is a nice hotel too with great location.. but probably more expensive than YMCA..

The weather should reach the coldest temp. in Feb.

Also, you can try motel168.

They have established chain hotels and gradually won more and more business.

It is going to be FREEEEEEEEZING cold. You definitely will know you aren't in Manila when you land!

I suggest bringing a WARM winter jacket and plenty of warm clothes. And make sure you bundle up the baby.

For best places to stay throughout the City, with a variety of prices, try:

I would recommend somewhere in Puxi near the "downtown" area so sights and shopping are nearby.


some tips for travelling in Shanghai

by tai_sh

Hi everyone! I'll be visiting Shanghai in mid-Aug for the first time for leisure and hope you could provide me with some tips.

1) How is the weather like in Aug? Is it still very hot?
2) Which is good hotel (3* or 4*)? I've got a quote for Chong Fu Hotel, Bailemen hotel and Charms Hotel, which is better, in terms of location and cleanliness?
3) I heard that the Xiang Yang market is closed, where can I go for budget shopping?
4) Which are the places that is "must" to visit in Shanghai?
5) Any good food to recommand?

RE: some tips for travelling in Shanghai

by ellyse

1) Yes.
2) I'd recommend some hotels other than the ones you've picked. What's your budget like?
3) Nanjing Lu is still ok for low/mid-range shopping. Also check out Qipu Lu market.
4) Hard to say when you don't mention your sightseeing preferences! Here're some: the Bund, Shanghai Museum, Yuyuan Gardens and Bazaar, brunch at famous Nanxiang xiaolongbao restaurant in Yuyuan Bazaar, bird's-eye view and drinks at Cloud 9 in Grand Hyatt (Jinmao Tower), Shanghai Municipal History Museum (in base of Oriental Pearl Tower), walking in French Concession, Xintiandi.
5) Answer to question 4... also check out Wujiang Lu for some nice street food.

RE: RE: some tips for travelling in Shanghai

by tai_sh

2) my budget for the hotel is about 200-350RMB per night. It should give enough budget for a decent hotel rite? Most important is cleanliness and location.
3)I have no specific preference for the sightseeing. I have been to Shanghai many years back, I remembered I visited yuyuan. I wonder if there are other interesting place to visit?

RE: RE: some tips for travelling in Shanghai

by ellyse

2) Do you have any preference as to where you'd like to stay? Your budget is just enough for a 3-star, but definitely not a 4-star hotel.
4) I thought you said you'll be visiting for the first time... and then you say you've been to Shanghai before, but many years back... In any case, I've already provided you with the answers in my original reply. If you're looking for sidetrips, you might consider Hangzhou, Nanjing (very hot in summer though), Suzhou and the other water villages around (eg Xitang, Tongli, Luzhi).

RE: Shanghai August 11-13 adult products trade show

If you are in Shanghai during the weekend of August 11-13, then I highly recommend an amusing visit to the Shanghai International Exhibition Center (INTEX) in Hongqiao District for the Reproductive Health trade show.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

A mish mash of things

by sugarpuff about Charmant

A place that is open until 4am which is always useful to know when you're in a foreign city and just KNOW that you're going to be hungry after a night out! When we had had a night out in Shanghai during the October Holiday we all staggered here around midnight before going onto a jazz club. As you can see from the photo, there were quite a lot of us, at least 20. The food came quick and the standard was quite alright. I wouldnt say it was the BEST food around, but when you're looking for a place that late at night, you can';t really complain! Being Cantonese dishes mainly and therefore not really knowing what is good and what isn't my friends had to help choose. I have grown to know and recognise some dishes, such as lemon tea (!), congees, beef noodles, a thousand year old eggs (preserved eggs), tofu of all different sorts and styles and then there were some token western dishes like spaghetti bolognaise etc. These are done in a Chinese way so they dont really taste the way you would expect it to.

I couldnt say what was my favourite dish sorry... but just try a little bit of everything!

Nanjing Road

by imstress

The 5.5-km long Nanjing Road is the most bustling and prosperous street in Shanghai . It was first built in 1851.

Hundreds of big stores and famous shops were opened one after another. The colourful and brightly litted Nanjing Road became the most bustling commercial street in Shanghai and in the whole country. Nanjing Road has become the centre of Shanghai’s busy downtown.

You will find hundreds of modernised shops, famous old-brand stores and special product shops. It has become the largest collecting and distributing centre of retail goods and an information centre.

At night, lights glitter in blazing colours, especially at weekends, it becomes a pedestrian walkway for shopping and sightseeing.

An almost surreal experience

by SPW

Driving in from the airport for our 5 day stay, there were endless blocks of flats(apartments), incredible road interchanges (up to 5 and 6 levels), kitsch sights like a giant bunch of flowers, old European style buildings and glimpses of futuristic modern ones.
While observing all this our guide was filling us with facts, figures and fables: modern Shanghai girls look for the 6 Cs when looking for a husband: car, condo, credit card, cash, certificate (degree)!
The only way to make sense of this city was to stop trying to make sense of it and just take it as it came, fragments of old, new, different, chaotic and timeless.
