Great for location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 19, 2007

I highly recommend this hotel because its great value for money, and its location is perfect in the city of Shanghai. You are 400meters walk from the Bund, 600m from Nanjing road, and 1km walk to Yu gardens ( I walked it twice, great exercise). The hotel is known by a handful of different and confusing names but its simply called Metropole Hotel Shanghai. The staff are very good and helpful and the food is decent. If I ever visit the city again, I will definately stay here, no doubt.

Unique Quality: The facilities here are what you would expect from any decent hotel.

The Metropole is a Baroque style hotel built in 1930 and has 145 guestrooms. The beauty of this hotel was its outstanding location and its price. It is 5 minutes away from the Bund and equally close to Nanjing Road and the subway Henan Road or Nanjing Road east. Rooms were comfortable, bathroom Ok, business centre, restaurant on site (but don't eat dinner here)

However, there was noise from the street as the roads were being repaired.It is also badly in need of refurbishment.

When we complained we given the option of upgrading and for 30Yuan have a computer in our room - what could we do???

Cost for 6 nights US$336 plus 30 yuan

Unique Quality: Without a doubt location - close to Nanjing Road, the subway and the Bund.

The addition of a computer was a bonus!!

Directions: Catch subway to Henan Road/Nanjing Road East and walk along Nanjing towards the Bund- turn at Jiangxi Road
