Shanghai Surprise

Posted Jun 22, 2017 on Hotels
The most amazing location and grounds and hotel combination. Quiet and secluded but right on a main thorough fare - grounds are simply stunning. Because the grounds are so spacious - you feel like you are in the countryside. Once you step outside the gate you realize you are in the hustle and bustle thick of Shanghai. Staff is incredibly accommodating. Excellent place to stay!

hotel with great history but service is lacking

Posted May 2, 2017
Pros: history, bed, amenities, breakfast
Cons: service.
Location: location is pretty good, though coming in and out can be tricky on the first 2 days for cab drivers as it is like a maze inside.
This is an attraction on its own, for the history and the beautiful gardens in the hotel grounds. Intercontinental Ruijin is an oasis in the buzzing city of Shanghai and a peaceful and calming place to call home. The bed is huge and really comfortable, the breakfast spread is quite amazing and the amenities in the room and out were all pretty outstanding. The only thing lacking is proper training of the hotel staff, especially those at the front desk and the bell boys. Also, the lobby could do with a little music and some essence in the air.

Lovely park setting at the heart of Shanghai

I only stayed one night but made full use of the lovely surroundIngs from enjoying a delicious coffee in my room with the window open to swimming and working out in the fitness center to walking the grounds to enjoying a mid morning tea in the sunny cafe. Wonderful place

Smokey hotel

Confused why there were locals in the hotel. Guy literally had his door open and smoking. Made the entire hall stink. Hotel staff did nothing

Excellent Hotel staff and great location

Posted Nov 13, 2016
Location: Centre of the RuiJin district. Shopping opportunities and great food options
A lovely setting in the middle of Shanghai, great to see some of these old building have survived the expansion of the city. Hotel staff were fantastic and friendly. Facilities were good and restaurant was nice

Good Hotel with bad management

Posted Oct 25, 2016
Location: Location is a bit off the city centre and it is hard to get a taxi
Staff do not have proper training. They do not maintain order resulting chaos when we were checking out(people jumped line).The breasfat area is not properly organised and food are placed in an disorganised manner.

Fantastic hotel in a great location in Shanghai

Posted Mar 28, 2016 on Hotels
Truly a beautiful hotel. The grounds are spectacular, and the surrounding neighborhood is very safe, with plenty of parks, shopping, etc. The breakfast/dinner buffets have a wide variety of excellent food, but very pricey. I would recommend looking into adding on the "club" access for happy hour.
