The entrance looks doggy but once you enter, it's a modern casual hotel, pretty pleasant. Hotel staff is professional, speak good English, even Cantonese! Hotel room isn't very big but sufficient, after all it's only a 4-star. No cabinet but there is a place to hang clothes. Bathroom is modern, fine. The neighbourhood is very local (that's fine for me)...

Being a frequent weekend visitor to Shanghai I always look for value for money hotels with a personal touch. The area is great and the Penta is a real joy to stay at, I have spent weekends at a very similar style hotel 10 min walk from the Penta, but this hotel is a step up and the breakfast buffet...

I stay at this hotel every time I go to Shanghai for business trip. Everything is same as usual, but during winter the heat makes the air too dry in the room. My colleagues and I all can't sleep well.

Generally the hotel is okay if you don't mind walking for about 10 mins to get to the subway station or don't mind the toilet is too small and. very inconvenient to get into the shower room. however, the lobby is quite impressive. good spot for chatting and eating with friends.

Pentahotel is next to the New World hotel, where I stayed years ago when it was the Mayfair. In spite of these and another couple of hotels in the neighborhood, it is not in an area that has many tourists or expats. So, don't expect everyone to have a working knowledge of English. Nevertheless everyone I encountered was friendly and...

I have stayed in this hotel many times. It is in the heart of Zhongshan Park area, close to a huge shopping mall (Cloud Nine) and many, many shops. Their service is very good, staff is always willing to help, breakfast has many options and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Very close to the metro station line 2.

You get what you pay for. As the price was good, there is nothing to complain about. Small room but everything very clean. Subway more or less underneath the hotel complex.

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
