    I ended up at this very nice hotel in the middle of the night. The staff could not have been nicer and I was given a key to a very nice room on a high floor. Despite looking out over a main road, the room was absolutely silent. I almost fell asleep when I sat on the bed because the mattress was so nice. But first things first. I ordered room service (reasonable prices!) and helped myself to a nice cold beer from my bar. The room service guys showed up with freshly cooked and delicious noodles. A feast fit for a king before retiring. The second my head hit their wonderful pillows, I was dreaming. I really did not want to get up the in the morning.

    In the morning I had a nice shave and hot shower in my modern bathroom and enjoyed the nice fluffy towels. The large mirror has a big steam-free area, but there are no extractions fans in the bathroom. You can see, but it’s a bit sweaty.

    Breakfast downstairs just off the beautiful lobby and waterfall was amazing. There was a room full of Chinese and Western hot breakfast items and lots of fresh fruit. Stunning. I had some great food to get my day started.

    Hotel Equatorial Shanghai is located in the central business district of Puxi and close to the Shanghai Exhibition Centre. There are a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. It is also walking distance to Metro Line 2 and Line 7. The west link of Metro Line 2 is connected the No. 2 terminal building of Hongqiao Airport and the east link is to No. 1 terminal building of Pudong International Airport.

    They also offer a lot of services including foreign currency exchange, travel/tour arrangements and even have a staffed desk at Pudong Airport. Just see them when you get off of the plane to arrange your transfer to this very nice hotel.

    Good Service and Location


    Our tour group was offered a complimentary upgrade to a 4-star hotel - Hotel Equatorial Shanghai, on the last two days. After staying in 3-star hotels during this Jiangnan-Shanghai trip, we finally got to stay in a nice, comfortable hotel!

    We loved the bed (big, fluffy King-sized bed) and the room, which was clean and cosy. This hotel provided what we usually expect - hairdryer, safe deposit box, bathrobes, etc (not all the hotels we stayed at during this tour provided all these!).

    The international buffet breakfast was also very good, with a huge variety of food (this was very important to us, as we were getting sick of eating greasy noodles and fried rice every morning in the other hotels) eg. cheese, ham, bacon, omelettes etc....

    Unique Quality: This hotel is located quite near to some shopping malls and the Jing'an Si MRT station. It is also nearby to some eateries and restaurants (eg. Cuban restaurant, Kuo Bee Pen Da Steamboat Restaurant, etc).
