It's about a 15 minute walk to the nearest subway station which also happens to have a massive shopping center. It seems like a typical 'executive' hotel in that they charge for anything 'extra'. For instance, internet access from your room is billed per minute and is expensive. I would not stay at this hotel again, not because it is bad, but rather I found nothing compelling about the experience to cause me to return.

ROYALTON SHANGHAIPosted Mar 17, 2011 on Hotels.com
Location: Apart from a big supermarket "TESCO" just 100m away from the hotel. And some food shops near the streets. The big shopping malls are slightly far, it takes approximately 30mins to walk. Even if you decided to take a Taxi, some drivers will act ignorant by not taking you as the fare is barely RMB$12.00. That happens to me such that I had to resort to a help from their local Policeman to get a taxi back to the hotel. That time then was close to 10pm and it was cold. Room: Lighting not enough, with the fixture in dark wood colour, it makes the room even dimmer. Toilet; Considerable ok but the piping need some change, it squeaks everything you turn on the tap. Overall: Will not stay in that hotel again.

A Quality HotelPosted Oct 21, 2007
I chose the Royalton Hotel purely for its location next to the Gymnastic Centre in Shanghai. It couldn't have been closer. When I arrived, I was made to feel very welcome and the staff were kind and helpful throughout my stay though their English was quite limited. The bar area was plush but not the kind of place conducive to making friends particularly for a lone traveller. The area around the hotel was typically Chinese and not too commercialised. Travel to the City centre areas was very cheap and convenient by taxi. Shanghai is an incredible city to visit and I can reccommend the Royalton Hotel.
