Reviewed 21 February 2012

This was my third visit to this busy city. Each other time I ended up in very large and somewhat impersonal hotels. A friend introduced me to this interesting complex incorporating the Cathay Building. To a European it has more character than some of the very moden high rise blocks and certainly I will go back again. Also the location is excellent, food was good - but felt that the Waiting Staff were quite casual when compared with stays in many other Chinese Hotels. No problems with Reception, Concierge or Business Centre employees..Well worth trying.

Room Tip: My room was in the back of the Cathay Garden Building - ok view over the nearby homes. If I was to r...

This hotel is located within or just next to the shopping areas in HuaiHai Road. Don't be fool by its old exterior, walk into the hotel and you will have a totally different experience. I stayed in the Cathay building. Room given was very spacious. Clean, nice and quiet. You can find many eateries around the hotel. Breakfast is in a restaurant on the 11th flr. Decent varieties of food to choose from...Chinese, western, japanese,

Located just one block from Huahailu, the popular district of Shanghai, the location is exceptional in an enclosed gated garden area. Though taxis are plentiful and inexpensive, two nearby subway lines just blocks away makes it even more convenient. Besides many name brand shops & restaurants, McDonalds is just around the corner, as well as, their inexpensive room service which offers a good variety of western & Chinese cuisine. The exterior of the building is very retro, but inside, the rooms looks to have been recently renovated with updated marble bathrooms. All amenities were included, such as: bathrobes, toiletries, slippers, temperature controlled air/heat, mini bar, etc. They should include the internet service in the price of the room and I would suggest that the hotel upgrade their televisions to flat panel LCDs to make the rooms look more spacious. The business center staff were not the best, but the helpful concierge made up for it with their attentive service. I would definitely choose this hotel again. It is a 5 star hotel, owned by one of the largest Chinese chains so you really can't go wrong.

Room Tip: The Cathy Garden is more inexpensive than the pricer Tower rooms (more modern & newer) which are...

Good location, spacious room (deluxe), quiet for a good night's sleep. The toiletry could use a little upgrade though. The gym is quite decent (size and machine-wise), and not crowded during my stay. The pool looked nice.

The only quibble I had is no wi-fi in rooms. Even in the lobby, you have to pay to have access. Which seems a bit behind the times as most comparable hotels now offer free wifi in rooms.
