"Excellent Location - Shanghai" Radisson Hotel Shanghai New World Tip by CorruptedSanity
Radisson Hotel Shanghai New World, Shanghai: 1,539 reviews and 5 photos
My wife and I stayed at the hotel twice during our trip to China. The first time was for 4 nights, then again for 5 nights.
The location is excellent, it is just a minutes walk from Nanjing Pedestrian Street and right across from People's Park and underground metro. It is also located next to several malls and restaurants. Even a starbucks thats in New World Mall (can enter the mall from the hotel lobby) or the Starbucks in People's Park.
Went up to the top floor once, really nice view. Perhaps we should have eaten but weren't too excited about the quality of the restaurant and prices.
The breakfast was not worth the money charged and therefore we only ate once. There was plenty of (obviously) Chinese foods and East Asian, but not too much Western Food. Room service was very fast and not too reasonable, but good food.
The view from the room was beautiful, on the first stay we had the Park view and on the second stay we had a view of Nanjing and the Pudong skyline. Both really nice.
We were upgraded to a suite, or a semi-suite the first time. I say semi-suite because the hotel room was more like a doctor's office. Upon entering the room, you were actually in a smaller room that contained an office desk, the cupboards and the minibar. I'd say 2 meters square, then you entered into the main room which was really the same size as a normal room, the exception being the "office" area you entered first. Also, the bathroom had a tub and a separate shower where as the second room had a tub/shower combination and no "office" annex.
The rooms were of quality furniture but really dated. I can imagine it looked real nice when first opened, but now needs new furniture.
The electric blinds in the bathroom did not work in the first room.
Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, from reception to concierge to bellboys. There is an Australian supervisor who is there most days of the week, even though everyone else speaks excellent English.
