The location is perfect as close to the metro and also a lot of (shopping/ dinner-) options in walking distance. The Service is very tried but it's difficult to get a Taxi. The rooms are clean and you open the window if you don't want the A/C. The hotel is perfect for the location the rest is average. Good for...

Swissotel is a nice hotel with good sized rooms and all amenities that you need. Rooms are clean and well equipped. The bathroom is ok but the shower door is almost impossible to open inwards if you're in the shower making the floor outside quite when when you want to exit it. There should be some electrical outlets close to...

Swisshotel is situated in a very convenient location in Shanghai. Albeit the hotel may be not a new one, the hotel room is nice. Bellboy and receptionists are very nice and friendly. The room is tidy. They have Nepresso machine in the hotel room, which is somehow out of my expectation. The hotel price is relatively reasonable. Swisshotel is a...

I really love Swissotel Grand Shanghai for its close proximity to everywhere in Shanghai, especially West Nan Jing Road. I have stayed since they opened their door. Swissotel Grand Shanghai is a clean, chic and luxurious, a five stars hotel, but you only pay 3 star hotel price. Before Swissotel Grand Shanghai was opened, I was staying at Ritz Carlton...

Office is within walking distance, thats the reason. Or else i am not sure if this is the best area to stay in if you want to get around Shanghai. There is a nearby train subway station with a historical temple nearby. Malls around here are luxury malls. Other than that ... you take the train and go elsewhere. Rooms...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
