“Tired Hotel but good location”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

My partner & I stayed in this hotel for the 2nd time this year to give it another chance really. The rooms are ok, some are huge but they are tired and both rooms we stayed in had very filthy carpets, chipped paintwork and basically felt dirty. It's such a shame as it looks so lovely from the outside. Breakfast is only served until 9.30 but they start packing everything away by 9.15. You are not shown to a table and tables are not cleaned between guests so it's difficult to find a clean table after 9am. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the Yuyuan market area, which we loved and about 20 minutes walk from the Bund which is great and not too expensive either. We have decided that we would not stay here again. It needs a makeover and breakfast to be served until 10am really and for the staff to be more customer friendly.

The hotel offers poorer service than a similarly rated European-run hotel. Toilet paper, shampoo, soap, tea, etc is not replaced when used unless you ask.

Rooms are a little shabby - they need some attention.

A particular annoyance was the breakfast - we were told it was served until 10am - by 9.30 am there was very little left and nothing was replenished. By 9.45 the staff were clearing away the trays so as to be completely clear by 10am. Very annoying as we had a late arrival the night before and had paid for breakfast which wasn't there. It was better the next day as we made sure we arrived early.

In summary, try to use a European-run hotel if available for the same price.

Doesn't look like a 4 star hotel. It is quite old and require renovation. Both room and bathroom had a strange odor.The mattress is very hard. Breakfast restaurant looks very ugly and did not have much variety of food. The wc on th hotel is dirty and they don't have toilet paper. The employees don't speak very good english.

hi, i just got bed bug bites at the hotel yun’s paradise (how ironic!) in shanghai china. please warn everyone traveling there. the hotel denied that their fault which makes me think that they’re not going to do anything about it. we checked out immediately and demanded refund for our one night there but to no avail. i’m going to report to expedia where we booked our rooms and see if they will pursue this serious problem that the hotel is ignoring. do not stay here!

Room Tip: i got bit from one night of staying there and they denied it was their problem! dont stay here!!

A very nice hotel. The room I stayed in was quite spacious with a nice decor. The breakfast buffet had a nice spread of both Chinese and Western items. The deposit requested at check-in (which drew complaints from a couple of other reviewers) was a standard deposit for incidental charges which is common at all hotels I stayed in whether it's in North America, China or anywhere else. Hotel was a 10 minute walk from the subway and the interesting Yu-Yuan (market/square). Buses are pretty much just outside the hotel. I'll stay there again if I ever go to Shanghai.

p.s. to the reviewer who complain about the lack of privacy of the glass-walled bathroom, there's roll-down privacy blinds for your use.
