I won't bother going in to too much detail about the facilties, staff etc: My room was small but nice, Internet access handy and daily breakfast very nice. Concierge very helpful with writing cards in Chinese to give to taxi drivers. What did concern me, and I have no idea how it is in other hotels, was the number of requests for "massages" I and other members of our travelling party received. Also, one evening when we returned to the hotel there were 3 prostitutes standing by the elevators on the ground floor looking for business.
It took me a while to realise that the women standing around in some bars and on street corners in some parts of China are in fact selling themselves Call me niave! It would be nice to think that, even if this does go on at every business grade hotel in China, it's something that's not condoned by management and that the "procurement" of such services could go on elsewhere Stayed in the Jianguo for a couple of nights over the weekend whilst on business.
On my first evening I ate in the Itoya Japanese restaurant. For me personally the menu was fairly restricted but I did enjoy what I ordered. On the second night I ate in the Sunflower court. The location of the Hotel was very much a positive.
Would recommend the Hotel for a short stay if you don't mind fairly cramped conditions in your room. The room provided decent value for money. We stayed in this hotel as part of our Kuoni tour of China. Some structural work was being undertaken, scaffolding was being erected while we were there. We received fruit and free drinks as compensation for this but we were not inconvenienced at all. The room on the 15th floor was clean and very comfortable with all the expected facilities.
Breakfast was good with lots of choice. I have stayed at this Hotel several times while in Shanghai. Rooms are very clean and well appointed. The executive floors have their own lounge on the 23rd. Great view, and relaxing atmosphere. A better breakfast is served when staying on the exec. There is shopping nearby, and there is a huge Catholic Cathedral directly across the street. It is approx 40 mins.
